A gunman fired upon thousands of people attending a music festival on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday night, in a brutal attack that is blamed for at least 58 deaths, police say. In the mass shooting and panic that ensued, 515 people were injured. At least one of the dead is an off-duty police officer who was attending the concert.

Editorializing: Interesting how media always emphasize ISLAMIC terrorists, but downplay domestic terrorism as psychologically disturbed individual lone-wolfs.

    The crime rate in Australia is not because of the gun ban. Australia has had multiple waves of immigration:

    late 40's - 50's - 60's : it was mostly Greeks and Italians, with a solid minority from the rest of Europe. They kept much of their culture, but worked hard, integrated well and improved our society. (Also lots of British, but AU was basically British then anyway)

    70's - 80's - early 90's : Cambodians, Vietnamese, Koreans, refugees from any other shit-hole in asia. They also kept much of their culture, worked even harder, took longer to integrate because they were visibly different, but are now a well accepted part of Australian society.

    late 90's - 00's - 10's : North african and middle east immigration. They are isolating themselves in ghettoes, refuse to work, are violent and tribal. They demand that we respect their religion while disrespecting everything about Australia. They are the major cause of current crime rates. The leftist media won't report what percentage of crime is recent M.E / N.A. immigrant based, but it is far, far out of proportion to their actual numbers.
