So the FBI were warned about this cracker but were too busy working out how the Russians rolled their girl Hillary (expect a national sorry day and posthumous Nobel here for Senator Joe McCarthy folks)

"AN ARMED officer was on duty at the Florida school where a shooter killed 17 people but never went inside to engage the gunman, authorities have revealed. The officer has been placed under investigation."

“Lean in, listen to me now, and never forget these words: to stop a bad guy with a gun, it takes a good guy with a gun.”

Must admit I did wonder how that evil bastard didn't get gut shot to writhe his last in agony if the snoozers at the FBI weren't on the job.

My biggest issue with bank cheques is that whilst I know exactly what cash should look like, I have no idea what every bank/credit unions individual bank cheques should look like, and even if I did I suspect they would be far easier to counterfeit than cash would.

That's my issue with bank cheques. Just sold my car and the buyer did a bank transfer on Monday, once it cleared I let him know and he picked it up last night. Nice, easy and safe.

After I thoroughly cleaned it up it came up looking immaculate, photos don't do it justice! Couldn't believe it myself, interior was like new and after polishing all the scratches out the outside wasn't far behind!

First guy that saw it fell in love and the next day after discussing price he deposited the full payment, no deposit or mechanical inspection!!! I wish all buyers were like that haha!

I had a tear in my eye when it drove out the driveway last night, was like losing a part of the family...

I just bought a 2014 Ranger XLT and went through the same thought process. The one I bought had 129,000km but was used to drive Perth to Lake King (~350km) most weeks so was mostly country kms. It drives like brand new! I tested a few others, one that had 69,000km drove like it had 690,000km. Another one that had 140,000km drove OK but felt a bit loose and choppy (if that makes sense).

I would buy on condition over kilometers anyday. Plenty out there with high kms going fine.

Do keep up with click bait- https://www.dailywire.com/node/27165#

What you have to bear in mind is the US have 13.3 citizens to our 1 so when we get 6 deaths like this-
https://www.msn.com/en-au/news/australia/no-human-remains-aboard-fishing-trawler-dianne/ar-BBJtSNC
it's like 80 US deaths in one hit or 13 like this-
https://www.msn.com/en-au/news/australia/woman-dies-after-suspected-carjacking-in-mirrabooka/ar-BBJtXpf

Do you think it makes much difference to their families and friends how they meet an untimely end or is there some ranking of grief I'm ignorant about?
WTF a boating accident and someone getting run over has to do with Guns I have no idea, the point you are making is moot as just about all the gun/shooting stats are presented on a per capita basis when comparing with other countries.

No matter how you compare it or want to classify it, the US has far more  shootings, mass shootings and school shootings per capita than we do here or in any other comparible country and that all comes down to access.

Thats bullShit.  Normally if you want a gun licence you have to nominate a place to hunt (with landowners letter).  Most cockies keep a rifle on site (if they want) , they still get feral animals.   What examples do you have of farmers having their licences cancelled and forfeiting their guns?

Not saying farmers had their licenses cancelled.  Remember back mid 90s when the big buy back scheme was in full swing.  That is when I am referring to.   The cockies having to hand in firearms that did the job of culling feral animals.  What they were left with didn't do the job as effective and feral numbers went up.

Cockies used to do it themselves then they had their guns taken away from them.
