Today we lost Tim Fischer, an earnest politician with an ear for opportunity, and a hand in forcing through our gun control laws after Port Arthur.
While it’s true the man had faults, to automatically tag John Howard as one of our worst does the man a disservice.
This week, the gun issue has returned to our shores in a matter so ham-fisted, so half-cocked, that it could only come from one source.
Despite the exposure our gun lobby is getting, I believe that the calibre of the rhetoric will fall short.
Again, extreme violence has punctured the American landscape. But expecting change illustrates a complete ignorance of their history. It repeats, because they allow it to.
As the situation with guns in schools spirals out of control, I thought I’d try and explain today for my grandson’s tomorrow.
Friday. Tally-ho. Overnight, Donald Trump explained yesterday’s insanity (sort of), the mass school shooting problem was solved (not really) and Russell Westbrook found love (kinda)
The generally held concept is that our sweeping gun reforms in 1996 forever stopped mass shootings in this country. The truth is quite different.
We’ve learned about the brutality of the massacre through bitter experience. But while these things may have happened long ago, we should not quickly forget.
Fake News is very much like stocking a library with books you’ll never read. You think you look smart, but everyone knows you’re actually dim as fudge. Sorry, Dad.

It’s our responsibility as a parent to do what we can to protect our children. Especially now, you may need to ask one specific question to help avoid a nightmare scenario.
Over in the US, a shark attack almost spooled out of control. Fortunately, a man packing a concealed shark he was well within his rights to have saved the day.
After every bloody crisis, we tend to not talk about it. Sadly, us staying mute merely emboldens more reptition of the same mistakes.
Good morning, gorgeous. While you were dozing, Trump met the people of Puerto Rico, one gun manufacturer benefitted from Las Vegas, and Jared Leto committed career seppuku.
The ongoing soap opera of the Adler shotgun has revealed a more dangerous threat, namely how Australian policy is shaped.
The rhetoric surrounding the watering down of our gun laws are fatuous, as we should be having an entirely different conversation.
What a week it was. We saw Trump call for the assassination of Hillary (sort of), and the totalling of a nation went horribly awry.
Morning, Angel. What happened while you were asleep? Well, a man spoke for fifteen hours to win gun control vote in the US, Northern Ireland caught fire and Helen Mirren raced for slips.
