Man arrested on LIVE US TV after toddler filmed waving gun
(Father) was charged with neglect after neighbours reported a child in a hallway carrying what they believed to be a handgun, police said.

The arrest was filmed on the TV show On Patrol: Live.

The show aired surveillance video allegedly showing the boy playing with a weapon and even pulling the trigger.

At least 8 shot during massive MLK Day celebration.

Sounds like, from our initial investigation here on scene, there was a disagreement of some sort between two parties and, unfortunately, they chose to resolve that with guns,

Very reason even more guns are needed!

It's like night and day which thankfully daylight shines brightly here down under.

Permanent gun amnesty recovers almost 18,000 weapons, including flamethrower, in first year.

Almost 18,000 firearms and weapons have been surrendered during the first year of a permanent national amnesty, but authorities remain unsure about just how many rifles, shotguns and handguns remain in the community.

The amnesty was set up in mid-2021, to complement existing state and territory schemes — and followed amnesties announced after the Port Arthur massacre in 1996, and a three-month program in 2017.

The program's annual report, released today, revealed 17,543 firearms and weapons were surrendered from July 1, 2021, through to June 30, 2022, along with 606 firearms parts and accessories.

New South Wales recorded the largest haul, with 6,704 weapons and firearms surrendered. And 2,352 were destroyed as a result of being surrendered.

Across the country, more than 8,000 rifles and almost 3,000 shotguns were surrendered, while almost 2 tonnes of ammunition were collected in the ACT, New South Wales and Tasmania.....
Done without any protests at all.

https://mynewsla.com/crime/2023/01/22/ten-people-dead-at-least-10-wounded-in-monterey-park-mass-shooting/
Ten people have been killed and at least 10 others were wounded in a mass shooting at a ballroom dance studio in Monterey Park and the shooter was at large, authorities said Sunday.
...
Sheriff’s homicide detectives were also in nearby Alhambra investigating a reported shooting attempt at the Lai Lai Ballroom & Studio in the 100 block of South Garfield Avenue to determine whether the two incidents were connected.
...
Witnesses at the scene told the Los Angeles Times that a heavily armed man entered Monterey Park dance studio Saturday and opened fire.

Seung Won Choi, who owns a seafood barbecue restaurant across the street from the shooting site said three people rushed into his restaurant and told him to lock the door because a man with a semiautomatic gun was in the area, the Times reported.

They told Choi the shooter had multiple rounds of ammunition and was able to reload his weapon, according to the paper.


https://www.sgvtribune.com/2023/01/22/new-details-on-deadly-monterey-park-mass-shooting-emerge/
The person suspected of the crimes was identified by Los Angeles Sheriff Robert Luna as “a male Asian.” But few details about him, the firearm he used or his whereabouts were known.
...
Monterey Park is a city of about 61,000 people according to Census statistics, and is located east of Los Angeles between the 10 and 60 freeways. About 65% of its residents are Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.

And it happened again, this time in Los Angeles, with 10 dead.

So here a question of the second Amendment which I should know of, but only a license to kill.

Is that still any wrong for not any right, because here I could be asking before.
