1. There haven't been anymore mass shootings since the Port Arthur massacre in the '90s.

Following the mass shooting, the Prime Minister of Australia, John Howard, introduced strict gun control laws within Australia and formulated the National Firearms Programme Implementation Act 1996, restricting the private ownership of semi-automatic rifles, semi-automatic shotguns and pump-action shotguns as well as introducing uniform firearms licensing. It was implemented with bipartisan support by the Commonwealth, states and territories.

Since then only a domestic violence incident with 4 killed has happened so Australia's action worked.

There is no real excuse for it not to be tried here except for the resistance of the NRA and gun humpers.
