In Sydney Australia three shootings in one day prompted some serious questions.
While it is impossible to know just how many illegal guns there are in Australia, GunPolicy.org, a website run by the School of Public Health at the University of Sydney, estimates the figure to be between 400,000 and 700,000. The vast majority of those firearms are registered and have been stolen from a house or business. They are not guns that have been smuggled into the country.
Right off the top of my head, I'd say if not for their gun control laws there'd be three shootings every day in Sydney, or more. Interestingly, when the straw purchasing business is all but shut down, theft becomes the major source of guns used in crime, unlike Minneapolis.
