Frostbite the 1996 gun buy back I have heard that most did just hand their 2nd rate guns in. And like you said the others are stored away for a rainy day. That was a very long time ago . Some 25 yrs. just how many of those gun owners have passed away or have become too old. You sometimes hear of vast hordes of guns being discovered on deceased estates from time to time. Will those guns ever come to good use considering that time is ticking on. The next now generation cannot really obtain and is mostly unarmed.It appears to me that ADF are being used in a logistics role, helping with transport. They have no power of arrest apart from the general citizens arrest afforded to everyone. This is a long way from the (IMO false) reports of ADF dragging people from tneir homes and forcibly injecting them.
If that was happening it would be front page news all over the world, because unlike what most Americans believe we did not give up our guns in 1996. Most were stored away for a rainy day, and there are now more legally held guns than before the restrictions.
Tell that to the people destined for camps like this one near Brisbane. Do you think this is OK?There is a lot of uninformed opinion and scaremongering on various forums about the covid response in Australia.
Lockdown is a lot about mindset.
In the quest for freedom and self defence and giving up our guns perhaps the yanks were right. After all it was only your generation that got to hide your guns. The now and future generations don’t have that right anymore. Still I not blame your generation as it was the government of the time and outside influence that done the deed America will fight for their constitution. 90 percent of Australians probably don’t even have a copy of our constitution and most have not read. I can’t even remember ours being mentioned or studied at school. The difference between the yanks and us I guess. We’ve always taken it for granted the Americans never didI was at the big Sydney rally in 96. Tens of thousands of angry gun owners there. I heard plenty of stories at the time of people walking up and down the lines waiting outside surrender centres, offering better money for semi autos than the govt was paying (although the compensation amounts were fair). Building supply shops ran out of 150mm pvc pipe and endcaps. It's reckoned a couple of hundred thousand semis, mainly sks, skk, mini14, were hidden.
And the yanks think Australians gave up our guns.
Wait a minute, you had TENS OF THOUSANDS of armed Australians assembled, and you chose NOT to fight for your gun rights THEN? If tens of thousands of armed Australians wouldn't fight in 1996, they sure as hell aren't going to do it now, with a few sporadic rebels.I was at the big Sydney rally in 96.

Haven't put up a fight? That we fight, is the reason we still have them. Gun rights are actually getting stronger as we speak. The radical leftists here tried to do the same after Columbine, Sandy Hook, Stoneman.... We STILL have our guns. Nobody likes a murderer, especially a child murderer, but we also refuse to allow ourselves to be vicitms at the hands of criminals who don't respect gun laws, or a tyrannical govt.In 1996 all politicians united to introduce new gun laws as a result of a massacre that saw 35 people murdered and 23 wounded. The gunman even chased little children down and executed them at point blank. No politician or media commentator dared speak out to defend gun rights. At the rally I attended we were villified as child killers. Counter protesters were dressed in black and carrying baby coffins. Most gun owners simply hid their guns rather than start a shooting war with the govt, police and the rest of Australian society. It has yet to be seen how Americans will react to the ever increasing restrictions on their gun laws. I very much doubt they will start an armed conflict to defend their 2nd Amendment. They haven't put up much of a fight so far.
Did you know, Frostbite, that in America, a 17 year old kid can carry an AR15 and shoot three criminals in self defense, while trying to protecting businesses from the mob of the democrats?Really Helen? Restrictions on high capacity magazines, bump stocks, certain types of 'assault rifles', red flags laws are just the start. All passed without armed conflict. New laws proposed for ghost guns will also pass without armed conflict. Why is it that so many Americans are so delusional? You live in a police state, where cops regularly carry out executions, usually without fear of punishment, where society is so polarised it leads to riots, where the murder rate often resembles a third world country, where infrastructure is so decayed tap water is undrinkable. A country that deludes itself as the world's bastion of freedom but is actually a fascist dictatorship. Did you know Helen, that in Australia an 18 year old can legally buy a handgun, a right that is not available in the US?
