Australia suffered 13 mass murders between 1981 and 1996. In the 16 years since our gun law reforms: zero. No more excuses please America.

Actually George the Monash Uni shooting, 2 dead & 5 wounded, occurred in 2002. Legal guns were used (the bloke had 7).

Not true - there was a shooting @ Melbourne uni in c.2006, which is when the handgun laws got changed.
