Gun buybacks: failed

Gun buyback

4BC Drive: The federal government has called for a national gun register, following a sharp increase in the number of firearms across Australia.

New research shows there are now just as many guns as there were before 1996's Port Arthur massacre, despite two buyback schemes.

Labor MP Andrew has told Gary Hardgrave a nation-wide register of firearms could keep a better track of the issue.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Now I'm starting to wonder why Howard took guns off the good blokes. They could have been popping off the illegal crimminals over there near Broome.

  • Still makes you wonder what Howard's motive for disarming the good people was, mick.

  • The gun control was to be monitored carefully by the police which were under labor state governments. This did not happen, border control was abandoned since Labor came into power at federal level in 2007 so in come the supply of illegal weapons hence the supply of weapons have not been managed in the hands of crimminals.

  • Your right mick, makes you wonder what Howard's motive for disarming the good people was.

  • Typical ALP reinventing the wheel again. We already have a gun register, every time you buy or sell a firearm, you have to get a certificate of purchase of the police, and I know this as I use to own firearms. There is your gun register, simple between the gun owner and the police force, no new over manned over paid government department which is all the ALP is going to achieve. The fact that it is now known that we have more guns than we did before the buyback means that the data must be available from a gun register.

  • All they ever achieved was to disarm the good people in the community and leave them defenceless with inefficient police and emergency services as evidenced by the Penelope Louise Pratt. The outcome of justice is that the emergency operator involved was reprimanded and counseled and most likely is now on stress leave meanwhile Ms Pratt is murdered so much for being unarmed in todays environment. http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/womans-triple0-call-on-night-she-was-killed-not-passed-to-police-20121030-28hrq.html
