The Daily Show: John Oliver’s Australia & Gun Control’s Aftermath

“John Oliver learns it’s pointless for America to study the Australian gun control experience because the situations are just too similar.

The similarities between Australia and America are pretty striking. The enormous difference, however, is the distinct lack of pro-gun special-interest power in the Australian government. If that blows your mind, check this out: Australian gun control was enacted by conservative politicians against the will of their conservative constituency. If Australian politicians can overlook a powerful minority to pass something that a nationwide majority approves of, why can’t our own suits and ties do it too?”

Hilarious! And so true. In my opinion, the ownership of guns is not a vital human right. Knowing your child is safe at a school or university without the risk of being shot IS!
