How could this bappen? I thought they banned all handguns??!?! Oh well, they should probably ban all rifles now too, just so this type of thing never happens again, right?

I don't think there is a handgun ban in Australia. Don't get me wrong not anyone can own one. They banned heaps of rifles and shotguns after the Port Arthur massacre. Semi-autos mostly. If you want a handgun in Australia you have to be an active member in a Target Pistol Club. There have been a lot of handgun related crime in Australia of late. Of course they are not the target shooters doing it but the crims who manage to get whatever handgun, rifle etc they want. Just wait for the media to start on this.

i dont think you understood, I was comparing you to the most hated man on FA.com, who was banned here, and is also rumored to be hangfire over there. He cuts and pastes up to 10 times a day. It got so bad one night that Tim made him his own forum, just for his shit. We call it the landfill. Or the litterbox. Its a real bear getting him to use it though. Yeah, you are cool. But are you also Cool?

Sombody got banned on FA? Didn't know that was possible. Poiny, WA is Washington State, not Western Australia. I have been confused many a time.

No, BOG is still there, along with just about everbody who got banned here, it seems. TheTacticalOne and DennisJSweetsers were banned for registering with intent to cause trouble and harass a member. I don't mean to give you crap DF, its all in good fun. I like BBC, the news is better. Its not supposed to be entertainment, like US news. CNN international is good too.

Hey 1GUNRUNNER I did not even realise this was my first post. I have been reading this forums since before Sept 11 2001. I must sit here and make comments outloud instead of typing them out. WA ... well this is interesting ... I have never been to Western Australia (I am in Melbourne South-East Australia) but I have been to Washington State with my work March this year. If only I had organised to have a shot of an AR15 while I was there. [>(]

Well .... I was wrong ..... this guy was a legitimate shooter. He has really helped the ban handgun crew. [V] Monash shooting update 5 22 October 2002 Police today released details of those people killed and injured in the shooting incident at the Monash University Clayton campus, in Melbourne’s south-east, yesterday. Homicide detectives have charged Huan Yun Xiang, 36, of Clayton, with two counts of murder and five counts of attempted murder following the shootings. He has been remanded in custody to 25 February next year. Police can confirm the names of the two men killed at Monash University. They are: Xu Hui (William) Wu, 26, a student, of Clayton.
