    Im a US citizen who has worked in Australia and the UK since the ban on hand guns went into effect in these countries. Im aware that as result of these gun bans, the rate of violent crime has increased significantly in both countries. Due to the nature of my occupation, I’m able to bring into these countries personal belongings with “Minimal” customs scrutiny. Therefore, despite the law, I brought my Glock .45 and carried when ever I left my home in Melbourne or London. Fortunately, despite the high rates of street crime and home invasions, I never had to use my gun; but I acknowledge the “legal consequences” had I done so. We have a saying in the US: “Better to be judged by 12 than buried by 6”. But what I fail to understand, and perhaps some “former” gun owner in Australia can answer, is this: Why did Australians behave like “Sheeple” and voluntarily turn in their guns, thereby giving up an ABSOLUTE AND MOST BASIC RIGHT OF SELF DEFENCE?

    (Note). If such a law were enforced in the US, this much I can guarantee; the streets would be littered with bodies. And many of them would be in Blue Uniforms.
