australia shootings fail

Cool sea life pictures on your poster! Ever heard of Google?

Many anti-gun advocates will tell you that Australia has had no mass shootings since they initiated a “mandatory” gun buyback. This is NOT TRUE.

What is true is that Australia has seen a RISE in gun crime. See my blog post from last year entitled, “Agenda-driven reporting: Vox claims Australia has solved its gun problem. They haven’t read “How Melbourne Became A Gun City.”

From my Melbourne blog post:

“I found a 2016 three-part series published by the Melbourne newspaper called The Age. There is no date stamp on the articles yet their statistical data charts go through 2016. The series is entitled, “How Melbourne Became a Gun City.” Here’s the title of the three articles:

Part One: Young, Dumb and Armed

Part Two: Gunslingers of the Northwest

Part Three: Chasing the Silver Bullet

A brazen new breed of criminals is taking up arms at unprecedented rates and they aren’t afraid to use them.

Despite Australia’s strict gun control regime, criminals are now better armed than at any time since then-Prime Minister John Howard introduced a nationwide firearm buyback scheme in response to the 1996 Port Arthur massacre.

Shootings have become almost a weekly occurrence, with more than 125 people, mostly young men, wounded in the past five years.”

To those who claim that mass shootings in Australia don’t exist anymore (see above picture of the womyn with the lovely sea life photos): How do you explain the following?

  • 2002 Cabramatta Shootings: An argument between a wedding guest and a table of diners at the restaurant in John Street, Cabramatta resulted in seven people being shot. Apparently the gunman shot seven people at the wedding reception because he thought their party was too noisy.
  • 2007 Melbourne CBD Shootings: The 2007 Melbourne CBD shooting was an incident that occurred in the Central Business District of Melbourne, Victoria on 18 June 2007. Three people were shot, one fatally, by Christopher Wayne Hudson, 31, a member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, who opened fire on two men and a woman during an argument on the corner of William Street and Flinders Lane at about 8:20 a.m. Hudson fled from the scene and went into hiding for two days, before turning himself in to police on 20 June 2007 in Wallan, north of Melbourne.
  • 2011 Hectorville Siege: This incident began after a 39-year-old resident of the suburb, later identified as Donato Anthony Corbo, entered his neighbours’ property and shot four people, killing three and severely wounding one. An eight-hour stand-off with police followed, during which time he shot and wounded two officers. The perp had previous “dealings” with the police.
  • 2014 Wedderburn Shootings:A couple and a middle-aged man from the same family died after being shot in a neighbourhood dispute at a rural Victorian property. A siege lasting nearly four hours ensued before the suspect surrendered peacefully and was arrested.
  • 2015 Biddeston Shootings:A woman who was among three people killed at a home near Toowoomba, west of Brisbane, was heavily pregnant, police say. The bodies of a 52-year-old man, his 27-year-old daughter Kris-Deann Sharpley and seven-year-old grandson Jackson were found by a relative who also lived at the house in the township of Biddeston, 25 kilometres west of Toowoomba. Police said the adults were shot in the head at close range with a high-calibre gun, but no details have been released about the cause of the boy’s death.
  • 2015 Hermidale Shooting:Three people were found dead on a rural property in remote New South Wales. The three bodies were found on a central NSW property, with one of the deceased discovered in the driveway by a member of the public. Another body was found inside a burnt caravan which was nearby on the Hermidale property, near Nyngan, north-west of Dubbo.
  • 2016 Port Lincoln Shooting: A father shot and killed his two sons before turning the gun on himself and driving at high speed off a South Australian wharf in horrific murder-suicide.
  • 2016 Ingleburn Shooting: Gunman who shot three people dies from self-inflicted gunshot wound. Heavily armed police had surrounded Inline Signage on Heald Road at Ingleburn after a gunman opened fire and killed a 43-year-old man while also shooting two others.
  • 2016 Banksia Grove Shooting:Three shot, one dead in Banksia Grove in Perth’s north. One of the men involved in the Banksia Grove shooting which left one man dead and two others in hospital has connections to an outlaw motorcycle gang, police believe.
  • 2017 Brighton Siege: On 5 June 2017, Yacqub Khayre, a 29-year-old Somali-born Australian, murdered a receptionist and held a prostitute hostage at the Buckingham International Serviced Apartments, located in Brighton a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. In a subsequent shoot-out with a police tactical unit, Khayre was killed and three police officers were wounded. Police consider the siege an act of terrorism.

  1. Thanks DCG, for this exposé of the truth in Australia. There is much to love in that land, but stupid liberal politicians are putting that great nation at risk.

  2. Gun control is code for people control.
    And all dictators and tyrants of the communist persuasion were all FOR GUN CONTROL TOO.

  3. Americans don’t have to look as far as Australia to know that strict gun controls and/or removing gun ownership from the populace is a losing proposition. Just check out Chicago and Baltimore to name a few. I found it highly amusing that people who live in those cities don’t find it necessary to march and protest the continuance of policies that seem to promote gun violence by criminals but, boy.. they can hoof it up to DC.

  6. Sooooo 16 mass shootings since 2002? and more than that in a year in the US, weird


    • You need to factor in the fact that Australia’s population (24.688 million in 2018) is only 7.55% of the population in the U.S. (327.270 million in 2018). California, alone, has a larger population (39.77 million) than all of Australia.

    • I didn’t compare stats by population.

      My point is that proggies tell us that due to gun confiscation Australia has no mass shooting, which is not true.

      • Plus there could be more mass shootings. Google doesn’t make it easy to find. The results were usually about how Australia doesn’t have mass shootings, which is not true.

      • DCG . . . . Great job in bringing us this article. I find it reprehensible for other countries to “point their fingers at the USA” when in truth, they have unresolved gun issues in their own lands. Talk about hypocrites.

  9. phoenix, it is not “gun violence” it’s human on human violence. I’m not mocking you, but the left uses that phrase at the drop of a hat. When was the last time a gun went off on it’s own and killed a democrat who really needed killing? Never, just proves my point.

    • Mr. deplorable.. thanks for pointing out an and you are correct that humans will carry out violence against one another, regardless of the instrument at hand. And yes…. guns do not go off on their own. 🙂

  10. As long as there is hate people will kill. And it does not matter the weapon the sin is murder. And your right Doc about the statistics they never factor in how many people take their own life with a gun once you deduct that figure then you have a much closer look at what the real figure is. The FBI has for the last 5 yrs said that more people are killed with hammers and knives than guns each year but the progressives aren’t screaming knife control or hammer control its only gun control. They are only interested in taking up the guns for the gun is the only weapon that keeps us safe from our own government. Your not going out to fight with hammers and knives when the swat team shows up to take what ever else is left after they have the guns. Ergo they win. Sooner or later this has to come to a head and what is going to happen at that point?☻

  12. The Howard gun laws came into existence from recommendations from the AIC (Australian Institute of Criminology) and those recommendations came from the NCV (National Committee on Violence). Both organizations were run by Duncan Chappel from UNICRI – a George Soros NGO. After finishing his job at the AIC, Chappel went back to work for Soros at UNICRI.

    Rebbecca Peters the head of the Coalition for Gun Control is on Soros payroll through is Open Society.

    The Port Arthur Massacre was a psy-op. Here’s a short 10 minute video that scratches the surface of the evidence.

  14. Great Post.

    Yes, it is true: Not only will any “successful” gun ban not reduce mass shootings, as there are “too many” guns in America (legal and illegal), but gun crime will actually INCREASE. This has been documented not only in Australia, but in every single nation this has been done in.
    Rocker Ted Nugent correctly noted on Alex Jones within this past month that not only do gun-control people not know their facts about what they seek, they don’t even know the logistics and ballistics of guns. They don’t even know, he maintained, their basic terminology. There is no such thing, for example, as an “assault” rifle. There are automatic and semi-automatic rifles, to be sure, but no “assault” rifles per se.

    Nor do the gun-control nuts know the real history of gun-control: They do not know (or care, it seems to me) that GENOCIDE followed gun bans on at least 17 historical occasions since about 1830! The genocide of the Third Reich against the Jews was not the only occurrence!

    I am very concerned about President Trump’s capitulation to the gun-control crowd since he said he would ban “bumpstocks.” Again, we need to know what a “bumpstock” is and what it does, and we also need to guarantee that if WE cannot have them on our guns, then the STATE cannot have them, either. HA! HA! Good luck on that one!
    Jack Posobiec of Alex Jones’ Infowars has opined (correctly, I fear) that IF the GOP loses the midterms this November, the House WILL move to impeach Donald Trump. MAKE NO MISTAKE: We are in the FIGHT OF OUR LIVES HERE; WE ARE IN A FIGHT TO THE DEATH FOR OUR VERY SURVIVAL.


    The appointment of John Bolton as Sec’y of State indicates Trump is building a War Cabinet—which may be necessary. But Trump needs to signal that he is building a Liberty Cabinet as well.
    I am NOT fooled: This David Hogg character and George Soros don’t fool me AT ALL. I know what is coming if it is not stopped: A BOLSHEVIK-STYLE REVOLUTION IN AMERICA. Think “It Can’t Happen Here?” Guess again!
