Should The U.S. Adopt Australia’s Gun Laws?

Implementing Australia’s “gun buyback” program in the U.S. would require forcefully taking guns from tens of millions of Americans.

An increasingly common response from pro-gun control activists following a mass shooting is the call for America to implement Australian-style gun control laws as the “solution” to gun violence. Following the horrific mass murder carried out in Las Vegas on Sunday, in which at least 59 people were killed and over 500 injured by a lone gunman perched in a hotel room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Australia’s radical gun reform laws of 1996 are once again being invoked as the means of preventing another such heinous act. But those condemning America for failing to follow Australia’s example are not being honest about what that would actually look like in the U.S.

Implementing Australia’s gun control policies first and foremost requires imposing Australia’s euphemistically named “gun buyback” program, the cornerstone of the country’s gun laws. As positive as a “buyback” program sounds, what gun control advocates often conveniently fail to note is that it only works if it is obligatory. The gun buyback is actually government-imposed gun confiscation. There is no opting out. You are handing over the gun that you own legally to the government, or else you will face the point of a gun. The only guns the Australian government allows their citizens to own mut be registered and permitted for specific purposes, and self-defense is not one of those government-sanctioned purposes.

Australia’s gun confiscation was only successful because of its large scale. The government took at least 650,000 guns, or about one-fifth of all guns in the country; higher estimates put the numbers at 1 million and one-third. There are over 300 millions firearms in the U.S. To implement the “buyback” program on the same scale in America would require the forced confiscation of 60 to 100 million guns from tens of millions of Americans.

    Let’s
    look at what the US Constitution has to say about it. Specifically the 2nd
    Amendment. “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a
    free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be
    infringed.” Here are some quotes from the founding fathers on the meaning
    and importance of the 2nd Amendment.

    The Founding Fathers on the Second Amendment

    “I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the
    people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”

    George Mason

    Co-author of the Second Amendment

    during Virginia’s Convention to Ratify the Constitution, 1788

    “A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves
    …”

    Richard Henry Lee

    writing in Letters from the Federal Farmer to the Republic, Letter XVIII, May,
    1788.

    “The people are not to be disarmed of their weapons. They are left in full
    posession of them.”

    Zachariah Johnson

    Elliot’s Debates, vol. 3 “The Debates in the Several State Conventions on
    the Adoption of the Federal Constitution.”

    “… the people are confirmed by the next article in their right to keep and
    bear their private arms”

    Philadelphia Federal Gazette

    June 18, 1789, Pg. 2, Col. 2

    Article on the Bill of Rights

    “And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress
    to infringe the just liberty of the Press, or the rights of Conscience; or to
    prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from
    keeping their own arms; …”

    Samuel Adams

    quoted in the Philadelphia Independent Gazetteer, August 20, 1789,
    “Propositions submitted to the Convention of this State”

    The Founding Fathers on Arms

    “Firearms stand next in importance to the constitution itself. They are
    the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence … from the
    hour the Pilgrims landed to the present day, events, occurrences and tendencies
    prove that to ensure peace security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally
    indispensable … the very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil
    interference — they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good.”

    George Washington

    First President of the United States

    “The supposed quietude of a good man allures the ruffian; while on the
    other hand arms, like laws, discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in
    awe, and preserve order in the world as property. The same balance would be
    preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but
    since some will not, others dare not lay them aside … Horrid mischief would
    ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.”

    Thomas Paine

    “To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people
    always possess arms and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use
    them.”

    Richard Henry Lee

    American Statesman, 1788

    “The great object is that every man be armed.” and “Everyone who
    is able may have a gun.”

    Patrick Henry

    American Patriot

    “Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that
    we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between
    having our arms in possession and under our direction and having them under the
    management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms,
    in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us,
    as in our own hands?”

    Patrick Henry

    American Patriot

    “Those who hammer their guns into plowshares will plow for those who do
    not.”

    Thomas Jefferson

    Third President of the United States

    “The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent
    in the people; that … it is their right and duty to be at all times armed; …

    Thomas Jefferson

    letter to Justice John Cartwright, June 5, 1824. ME 16:45.

    “The best we can help for concerning the people at large is that they be
    properly armed.”

    Alexander Hamilton

    The Federalist Papers at 184-8

    The Founding Fathers on Maintaining Freedom

    “The greatest danger to American freedom is a government that ignores the
    Constitution.”

    Thomas Jefferson

    Third President of the United States

    “There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to
    govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters. ”

    Noah Webster

    American Lexicographer

    “The people never give up their liberties but under some delusion.”

    Edmund Burke

    British Statesman, 1784

    “What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned
    from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them
    take arms.”

    Thomas Jefferson

    to James Madison

    “They that give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety
    deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

    Ben Franklin

    American Statesman

    • Joe Wommack

      America DOES NOT need to follow any nations laws.rules/regulations.This is AMERICA,stand up for it or GET OUT!!!! WE NEED to deport/export most of those who (with delusional dreams) meaning Congress/Senate TAKE our money and give us ( 0) in return!!!!!!!

    • Jim Kremsreiter

      I’ve heard it said that if the 6 million Jews slaughtered in the Holocaust each had a rifle, 20 rounds of ammo and the will to use them, Hitler would have been a footnote in history. Only 20 rounds each would have done it! Will Americans owning guns have the will if the situation arises? I’d like to think so! Also, Berlin Vet, I loved your Jefferson quote:
      “Those who hammer their guns into plowshares will plow for those who do
      not.”
      Thomas Jefferson, Third President of the United States

      • livefree1200cc

        There was only 4 million Jews living in Germany, so how could 6 million be killed?. The Holocaust was a lie. If it wasnt and they were all killed, who was left to occupy the nation now known as Israel?

        • Jim Kremsreiter

          Duh, you don’t read much history,do you? What about the Jews he killed from the rest of Europe? And the Jews from the whole world available to settle Israel? The Holocaust never happened? Another DUH. More than enough evidence to say otherwise, in fact my uncle was in the US Army unit that liberated Dachau. He saw it and spoke often of what he saw!

          • livefree1200cc

            History books are written by the people in charge. Unless you personally watched Jews marching into gas chambers, all you have is second hand information written by the people who want to control our lives

    Unless you’re advocating treason that would require an amendment to the US Constitution and probably another revaluation as the British coming to confiscate the weapons was the catalyst for the first one.

    • avlisk

      6 months ago, standing by my doggie door, holding my .380, stopped 3 teenage perps from coming in that doggie door. They turned and ran. My other option was no gun and hand-to-hand combat using my 66 year old, arthritic body. Enough said. Oh, and there’s that Constitutionally protected right, too.

      • Jim Kremsreiter

        The next option, without your.380, would be to stand over your doggie door with a baseball bat and slam the perps with it as they’d try to come through. But then, I guess, you’d probably get arrested for using an unregistered weapon, or failing that, using “unreasonable force”. Still, if they took my guns, I’d have a bat handy!

        • avlisk

          The arthritis is a real handicap just standing up sometimes. An equalizer, a mind-changer is a great tool to have next to me. I wouldn’t give it up for anything.

Do ya’ really think a 66 yr old senior with arthritic problems can fight 3 healthy teens? Even WITH a baseball bat–the odds are on THEIR side. P.S.-Australia seized guns because the DON’T have a Constitution like ours, not because they have any rights.

    Do we want to change America to country that has crime problems like Chicago?

    You got to be kidding! They regret ever giving up their guns. They want to change their laws I bet back. This is the biggest mistake any country can make. Absolutely never let that happen!!

  • NoMoreMarxistsInDC

    “If you are for gun control, then you are not against guns, because the guns will be needed to disarm people. So it’s not that you are anti-gun. You’ll need the police’s guns to take away other people’s guns. So you’re very pro-gun; you just believe that only the Government (which is, of course, so reliable, honest, moral and virtuous…) should be allowed to have guns. There is no such thing as gun control. There is only centralizing gun ownership in the hands of a small political elite and their minions.”

    Since the United States Congress was STUPID ENOUGH to pass Edward Kennedy’s “Family Reunification and Chain Migration” immigration law in 1965, our country has been the favored repository (i.e. dumping ground) of criminals from nearly every nation of the world! We now have Asian Tongs, Chinese tongs, Cambodian Tongs, Muslim terrorists, Russian criminal enterprises, MS-13 gangs in nearly every major city, Mexican Drug Cartels, and criminal gangs of virtually every other race and ethnicity which are routinely endangering the lives of generational American citizens! And 93% of the Democrats serving in Congress, along with 10% of the RINOs don’t seem to care because they’ve been actively replacing generational Americans with Third World peasants for decades! It’s now time for generational Americans citizens to band together and replace the traitors who are undermining our rights and our Constitutional Republic!

  • W. Coyote

    Gun ownership is alive and well in Australia. Most of the guns in the picture above were not part of the buy back program. The program applied mostly to semi-automatics. Hunting rifles were not affected but some people also turned in non-prohibited firearms. Since the implementation, there have been no mass shootings in Australia and homicides have fallen as well.

    • livefree1200cc

      There never were any mass shootings. They were faked just like they are faked here in the US. All in the name of gun control (population control)

      • W. Coyote

        livefree- Good morning and thank you for your reply. “they were faked”? Really? Did they fake the funerals too? Did Steve Scalise fake his hospital stay? Was law enforcement also part of the “fake”?

        • livefree1200cc

          Most of them were faked and yes law enforcement was involved with the faking. The Newtown shooting in Connecticut was faked all the way to the actors playing the grieving parents meeting with Obama to keep the charade alive. Newtown school had been closed since 2008 but somehow there was a mass shooting there years after the school closed?? Anybody who seriously looks into these shootings can find the proof they were faked. Do people really die from shootings – yes sure they do. The biggest and most publicized shootings are most likely faked in order to pull off global gun control

          • W. Coyote
          • livefree1200cc

          • livefree1200cc

            I read the article, it was quite amusing. I already told you everything you needed to know. The school had been closed for 4 years! IT WAS AN EMPTY SCHOOL. Every bit of the snopes article is a blatant lie. It was a scheduled FEMA type drill that was used as gun grabbing propaganda. It was a drill, it was not real. There were no bodies. There were crisis actors on the scene. One guy even played two different roles. Google ‘Sandy Hook sloppy sniper’. There are pictures online of them preparing for this the day before. No deaths reported that day or ever on the FBI murder statistics for Sandy Hill. No one was allowed anywhere near the property afterward and the school was immediately TORN DOWN. If any of that makes any sense to you have more problems then your ignorance on the subject. Just google it, there are MOUNTAINS of evidence that it was a drill. Obama even brought the crisis actor ‘parents’ on your to push for gun control afterward. These people were known, provable actors – some have even been seen at the Fake Boston marathon incident and others

            Are you saying that the fact that this man lost his son is part of the disinformation?
            All I’m saying is that if you can’t handle a few questions about your opinions then you don’t have a very strong case.

          • livefree1200cc

            Its called fake news. Nobody died, the school had been closed for 4 years

          • W. Coyote

            I assume you have relied on Alex Jones for at least some of your claims. Some relevant information for your consideration:

            “Jones’ lawyer Randall Wilhite outlined the novel defense, telling those present at a recent pretrial hearing that Jones’ InfoWars persona does not reflect who he is as a person. “He’s playing a character,” Wilhite said. “He is a performance artist.”

            Jones himself made a similar claim in early April while facing criticism ― and potential criminal proceedings ― after calling Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) an “archetypal cocksucker” and threatening in an expletive-laden rant to “beat [his] goddamn ass.” Jones later posted a follow-up video describing the comments as “clearly tongue-in-cheek and basically art performance, as I do in my rants, which I admit I do, as a form of art.”

          • livefree1200cc

            Who is Alex Jones and why are you so fascinated with him?

          • W. Coyote

            As I suspect you are well aware, Alex Jones is the source of many of your claims. He is not so fascinating himself. But it is fascinating that so many people are under his sway.

            One thing should be kept in mind- just because you don’t like a story, that doesn’t automatically mean it is fake news.

            Meanwhile, you have inspired me to do more research. The conspiracy you describe was truly amazing. Not only did they produce a very complex “show”, they also employed time travel. Just in case anyone questioned the narrative of “the school had been closed for 4 years”, they went back in time and included budgeting for Sandy Hook. I guess not one of the good people of Newtown, Conn. minded that their city spent millions of dollars on staffing for a school that didn’t exist.

            You gullible dork. There WAS an elementary school in Newtown, it just wasn’t the one that the staged event took place in. Do you really think that little town was big enough for 2 elementary schools? You don’t find it strange that after the ‘shooting’ they were able to CLOSE the school for good and THEN TEAR IT DOWN? Thats because all 500+ elementary students were already at the new school on the other side of town. Doesn’t it take a while to build a school? Did you think they just let the kids go home in Decemeber (the time of the ‘shooting’) till they built the new school? Jesus, just go back and watch the original news footage. If you cant see FAKE written all over it than you deserve to be a slave to the government

          • W. Coyote

            Did you take the time to read the budget that I linked for you? Newtown, Ct. had 4 schools serving grades K-4. In the aftermath of the shooting, the Sandy Hook students were sent to the other schools. Sandy Hook was built in 1956 (I believe). They demolished it at least partly because of the traumatic event that took place there and the effect on the students who would return.
            Concerning Las Vegas- are you suggesting that one didn’t really happen either?

          • livefree1200cc

            Unless you witnessed it yourself, dont believe anything on the fake news

          • W. Coyote

            Good policy. But to follow that point, you are saying that there were 22,000 extras hired for that stunt, including all their family members and friends to pretend they were concerned or grieving. Also they hired Jason Aldean and all the other country acts to play along. In addition they had to hire everyone who worked at that hotel from the managers down to the janitors. They also had to hire all the doctors, nurses, ambulance drivers, etc I’m sure I’m forgetting some others who were involved, but I am truly impressed that they pulled that act off Who was the director? Who paid for it all?

        • livefree1200cc

          and yes, the highly publicized funerals from Newtown were also faked. All closed caskets and never any proof of anyone dying

          • W. Coyote

            I thought so. Instead of honestly asking me to explain my views, you intended to use my answer (whatever it is) as target practice. Sorry you feel that way about your valuable time. I feel just the opposite. Thanks to you, I got out of my comfort zone and was reminded about the appealing world of conspiracy theories. It’s also interesting how many people around the world buy into them as well. Just this morning I found out that the Taliban in Afghanistan thinks 9/11 was an inside job ( U.S., Israel, etc) So there is a fascinating parallel between conspiracy theorists here and devout Muslims halfway around the world.
            Otherwise, I hope you and your family are doing well today.

    NEVER!

  • AFGus

    What a ridiculous question! Australia’s gun laws have not reduced violent crime. They have “only” kept law abiding citizens from protecting themselves against violent crime. In short, the answer is obvious…. No freaking way!!

  • PFG

    The truth of the Second Amendment. It purpose is the same now as then, to prevent tyranny.

    “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”.

    By “well regulated” they mean regulation firearms, military grade. By “free state” they are not inferring that the states governing body needs protection from itself, but that the people have the right to protect themselves from a tyrannical governing body. By “keep & bear arms” they mean on our persons or stored at our convenience. Not subject to surrender or nullification on their doorstep. The “right of the people” and “shall not be infringed” I believe are obvious to all. This includes bladed & other weapons.

    The Tenth Amendment sums it up: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

    This not only attests to the right of the people to keep and bear arms by observing that the United States does not have the power to strip a citizen of their inherent right to keep and bear arms, but also reiterates that it is prohibited for the United States and the States to do so. Reaffirming that the right is reserved by the people.

    The Fourteenth Amendment was never properly ratified. But rather it was forced upon the State especially the Southern States.

    How about new Jim Crow laws for all the black on White crime & 1935 Nuremberg laws to get rid of the Roth family controlled Federal Reserve.

    “On every question of construction, [let us] carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, & instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, conform to the probable one in which it was passed.” Thomas Jefferson.

    Norman Mattoon Thomas, a six time candidate for the U.S. Presidency under the “Communist Workers Party of America” said that he no longer had to seek high office because the Democrat Party had adopted their platform, & that the American people would never knowingly or willingly accept Communism they would do so under the guise of “Freedom & Democracy”. He said that in 1943.

    “Redistribute the wealth” a favorite of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and the rest of the Nancy boys, coined by Vladimir Lenin. “From each their own abilities, to each their own needs blah, blah, blah” Hillary Clinton & Karl Marx a.k.a. Moses Mordachai Levi. “I’m tired of hearing about that G’Damned piece of paper” George W. Bush on three separate occasion in reference to the United States Constitution which they are all by oath of office sworn to uphold and protect against all enemies both foreign and domestic.

    I wonder what part of “…shall not be infringed” the gun grabbing knuckleheads are unable to comprehend? Australia’s crime rate rose by 400% following the Australia gun grab. I have a friend who resides near Adelaide and she tells me of smash and run teen age gangs that police are seemingly helpless to curb than began to manifest themselves following the grab. Additionally, if “government” is the sole holder of arms then by projecting “might makes right” one can expect all other rights to evaporate in the face of anticipated government tyranny where government agents are the sole arbitrators of individual rights. God given rights will vanish and individual rights will become what some “official” decides to allow at the particular moment.

    Governments have a hard time taking care of themselves. People on the other hand know how to take care of themselves. More regulations prevent people from doing this.

    Taking the guns away from the citizens of Australia did not reduce gun related crime. What it did was make every citizen vulnerable to being a victim of a crime with no way to defend ones self. It also made the citizens of Australia peasants and serfs to big government control.The gun grabbers and liberals and really stupid people want the same for us.

    I’ll give up my guns, when they pry my cold dead fingers off them

    NEVER! Many in our government would love nothing better than to control all of us and we MUST make sure it never happens or America will be the next socialist, communist country! Stand up for the 2nd amendment, do not waiver, call, write, email and/or protest your representatives office, WE MUST remind them that WE apy their salaries and we DO NOT want to rid America of guns and they can be the first, the example to have all their security abandon any and all weapons. That we be the test of time……how many will not go along with it because they believe they are more important than any other American.

    how about hell no

  • Gary Grissett

    EVEN THE AUSTRALIA GOVERNMENT NOW ADMITS THE LAW HAD NOT WORKED AND IS A SHAM.

  • Frederic Charles Hilnbrand

    HELL NO!! I LOVE the 2nd amendment so we can protect our selves.

  • Ursus_Indomitus

    GAWD no. Are you nuts? That’s the stupidest question I’ve read all year.

  • Absolutely NO we will not use any racist country to take away arms from any citizen to arm and defend him self and his family so democreeps when they attack you we the people will turn our backs on you as you are not fit to be with law abiding citizens, so go back to your crooks and go put your pointed masks on so no one will recognize you as what you really are KKK democreeps, liars, crooks, corrupt, dishonest, untrustworthy untruthful liars, so my message to you crooks is to crawl back in your hole.

    To bad all those cell phones were not guns. The shooter would have died a few minutes earlier and a lot l fewer others would have died.

    Diane wants to disarm the OTHERS. She has persons with guns around her to save her old hide. (Because her old skin is valuable) ????

  • allisonisa39e

    Hitler, Stalin, Mao Zedong, Castro, Pol Pot all knew that the guns would have to be taken from the citizens. Then they could kill literally millions of the citizens of their country.
    THEY WERE RIGHT. Does anyone wonder why the Government politicians want to take the guns from the American citizen ?

  • livefree1200cc

    The Constitution states that every citizen has the right to bear arms. None of these fake shootings should ever be allowed to change that. It was these same fake shootings that got Australians guns taken away

  • hoyingla

    If we surrender out firearms to the government then we become subject to be ruled over not free men!

  • Daniel Mount

    NO! That would be the end of all freedoms for all Americans. By the American people being armed is preventing the Government from taking us as Slaves. A armed America is a free America.
