Gun Control Australia staged their “#MarchForChange” solidarity rally in Sydney on Friday afternoon to a capacity crowd.
Standing room only apparently:
Don’t worry, they’re all firearm experts, every single one of them. Politicians seemed to outnumber the protestors as well. Tanya Plibersek, Lee Rhiannon, David Shoebridge and Sam Lee accounting for at least 25% of the protestors.
The most hypocritical part? Thanks to footage sent to us, NSW Police were protecting the protestors with firearms at Martin Place.
Sam Lee and David Shoebridge:
And the Police protecting them:
What a great way to take the moral high ground about so-called gun violence, protected by the objects you are complaining about. Why did you need guns there?
Furthermore, the event took place at Martin Place – the site of the Lindt Café siege where guess what, an illegally acquired firearm was used to bring Sydney to a halt and more people ended up being shot by Police than Man Monis. Also note the bollards at the entrance of Martin Place to protect against vehicle attacks.
Sam Lee then managed to get in front of a microphone for her usual incoherent babble:
Hold on tight – to what exactly? Credibility?
The same old sophist drivel from Sam. As if Donald Trump knows or cares about your message. I’m sure the 10 people there didn’t either.
The fact that virtually no-one turned up to the Sydney protest bar a few Greens supporters from the Left Renewal chapter shows you just how much Australians’ care about Gun Control Australia’s views.
This Australian exceptionalism attitude about lecturing Americans about gun laws, while not knowing anything about either Australia or the United States when it comes to firearms, is becoming a cringeworthy trend that needs to end.
