    It's not about what you can do to yourself, it's about what you could do to others.
    so no need for any suicide prevention then ?
    here i thought saving lives was the goal. silly me.

Another point is that it is perfectly possible to kill a large number of people without using a firearm if one is deranged enough to wish to do so.

    and thats just it.
    firearms rules where always about preventing spur of the moment acts, people get heated and do stupid things. by far the most common type of incidents. there has only ever been two major incidents in modern times and they are 30 years apart.
    you can't stop planned attacks very easily and guns are not usually the main weapon.
    notice no one is talking about the bombs he made.

    As far as I know, all the parties supported the law change so it wouldn't have mattered who was in government.

    thats more to do with politics rather than actually looking a the facts of the situation.
    it would be political suicide to go against anything no matter how bad it is.

    as its in the news at the moment, imagen if we banned aircraft because of one crash in 30 years.
    big passenger aircraft crash all the time killing hundreds at a time. but we still fly on them.
    the aircraft industry spends a lot of time and money finding out the true cause and fixing the real problem.

    its all about understanding risk. the old story of the most dangerous part of flying is driving to the airport.
    and theres more chance of dieing in an aircraft crash than being shot by a nut job gunman.

    Hmm seem this ban they have introduced, doesn’t actually ban any of the guns the gunman used.

    It leads to them being trigger happy too. Look at the US
    They HAVE guns, they don't need to assign one to every beat cop on the street.

    What makes you think that police here are trigger happy?

    Please don't take the 0.5% of cops who are idiots and apply it to the 99.5% who do a great job.
