    I grab an imaginary tank and blast away at this imaginary likely roving band of marauders! :)

    They are not imaginary when they are coming down your street. If you were faced with a sustained period of civil unrest would rather live in a community where it is known that most residents own guns or none do?

    Well it's real easy. You find a private citizen willing to sell then you buy it from them

    Uh.. yeah they do. I've bought from more than one. It's also perfectly legal, as it should be

    I have already explained this.
    Those posts had nothing to do with Mueller.

    Well, the chances of that happpening here are probably less than me being eaten by a white pointer. Maybe Aussies generally are more Law abiding and we don't live constantly thinking......."What if? Oh, we better get guns in case the Fairies at the Bottom of the Garden get antsy."

    Seems you just have to let them have their way

    ‘We had to stand guard to stop the grubs’: Mum fends off looters after floods

    "Anthony Hill said he had spent the past two nights watching criminals target disaster-hit families — many of whom do not even have insurance because of sky-high premiums in the area.

    “People have been trying to break into cars and flog fuel and other stuff from under the house in south and north Lismore,” he said.

    Facebook users expressed their disgust at those looting the properties of vulnerable people. “This is a special sort of lowlife and needs it [sic] own category of punishment,” wrote Verina Green. She later told news.com.au her post had sounded harsh. “I only meant that these people often get let off lightly or with a fine. I think it needs more than that. Sometimes including help. Drug addiction should not be an excuse to not be held accountable.”"

    Speak for yourself, I've been through many here where we have a good chance of hurricanes every summer. We see the BLM and Antifa riots and property destruction and physical assaults routinely.

    Again

    What a load of crap. They had their safety net. They were miors, responsible for nothing beyond obeying the law. They were angry about being teenagers, not about racis.

    How so? these kids got another kid killed. A charge of homicide seems to fit the bill.

    I don't share your perspective. I'd save murder charges for people who had intent to end a life and who dealt the death blow themselves. The law is the law and I'd love to see this one changed.

    Then you’d probably like to see hate and conspiracy crimes erased since they are based around intent and not actions. Am I right?

    Nope, unless people are going away for 20 additional years for them and then I'd say reduce the time but keep the crime. This is about giving kids a chance to be rehabilitated versus turning them into hardened criminals. Nice try, though.

    So then you disagree with them being charged with murder?

    You should have known that to be true. You clearly are NOT a lawyer.

    What you're describing is murder 1 IE intentional murder.
    That's death penalty or 25 to life.
    Felony murder is like 5-15, the name of the charge denotes that you were involved as a party in a crime that escalated to the point that someone died.

    ROFL says the person who claimed that under Florida law George Zimmerman committed a stalking and assault on Treyvon Martin. Still waiting for you to reconcile that with actual Florida law.

    Here's what our fairies look like.


    And here's a bunch of paranoid white racists with magic fairy repellent.



    Our country is not like yours. We have different ... demographics.
    We're stronger, because we're more diverse because diversity is strength.
    We could send you some of our strength if you asked nicely.
