ADG...So you are blameing people in countries will more freedom then yours for any weapons that end up in Austrailia...
Not at all .. you were the one that raised the issue of gun control, I was merely *responding* to you. In reality I blame countries with greedy residents without morals for the *handgun* issue in Australia (in addition to the losers that buy and carry them).
Either way clearly Aussies wheren't able to ban a damm thing.
It's not really possible to ban anything 100%, but that doesnt mean we shouldn't try.
Seems that dagger should be heading in the direction of your customs service.
A valid point, but that's shared responsiblity. Do you know how many parcels come into our country every day? Do you know how many kilometres of coastline we have? The country is only just smaller than the US, we don't have any shared borders and 20mill inhabitants. Do you really think it's possible to watch 100% of the coastline all the time? (although I volunteer for the little patch at the Gold Coast!
Again respects to this officers family.
That was the point of the post ....
