    Another problem with American Gungrabbers is that their focus is on misnamed "Assault Weapons."

    And rifles of all types including the wrongly dubbed "Assault rifles," are used in only 2 tenths of ONE PERCENT, of all homicides. Not all violent crime all homicides.

    And of course laws don't bother criminals.

    We never had Democratic Party mismanagement in the country.

    That is not correct. The data is available in the Australian Bureau of Statistics Crime Reports. I provided the data in the previous post. Graphically it looks like this:

    aus_usa_vc - Copy.JPG


    From 1996 to 2001/2002, violent crime increased 42%, from 716.7 per 100,000 to 1015.7 - thats an annual increase of about 75,000 violent crimes.

    Australia also has a population size more than 13 times smaller than America, and without crime-ridden cities like Detroit, Indianapolis, Baltimore, St. Louis, Memphis, etc. African Australians only make up less than 1% of the population, and the majority of Australia's minorities are Asian.

    Melbourne is having big time trouble with Somali gang violence.....

    Our other Africans in the population are on par with the best educated and financially settled Australians.
