"We wrote at the time: "Have murders increased since the gun law change, as claimed? Actually, Australian crime statistics show a marked decrease in homicides since the gun law change. According to the Australian Institute of Criminology, a government agency, the number of homicides in Australia did increase slightly in 1997 and peaked in 1999, but has since declined to the lowest number on record in 2007, the most recent year for which official figures are available."
Gun violence was already on the decline in AUS...even before they banned guns.
"My liberalism is based more on FDR than on Washington. Conservatives though, still fight everything good for working class Americans just as they always have."
Yeah, mixed in with a little Lenin. You said it right there..."fight for everything good for the working class." That's not that different from the beliefs promoted by Marx and his successors in the past several centuries. They used the word proletariat instead of working class, but it was the same group. And the enemies were the same. And they were all more than willing to use force in order to promote the welfare and well being of the "working class."
You may call yourself a "Liberal"...but you're definitely not liberal.
