UH, DUH: Australian Lawmaker, Our Gun Control Laws Created a ‘Nation of Victims’

That’s exactly what happens with gun control: the good people turn in their guns, and the bad people continue to be bad people. Check this out…

Australia has been turned into a “nation of victims” by gun control laws, Liberal Democratic senator David Leyonhjelm believes.

He says this week’s Sydney cafe siege would have been less likely to happen if the gunman thought his hostages might be carrying concealed weapons.

“That nutcase who held them all hostage wouldn’t have known that they were armed and bad guys don’t like to be shot back at,” Senator Leyonhjelm told ABC radio on Thursday.

Instead, he says, “we are all disarmed victims” and that’s unacceptable.

Cafe hostages Tori Johnson and Katrina Dawson were reportedly shot by Man Haron Monis moments before police stormed the shop and killed the gunman in a hail of gunfire.

“It would have been illegal for them to have a knife, a stick, a pepper spray, a personal Taser, mace, anything like that for self-defence,” Senator Leyonhjelm said.

“To turn an entire population into a nation of victims is just unforgivable.”
