Turning trespassers into terrorists : US gun politics : Australia's gun politics

According to the US Government, 
these three peaceful trespassers are violent criminals.

Don't know how other Australians feel, but I think the United States of America has made itself a laughing stock because of its inability to legislate, through its national government, meaningful gun reform

The National Rifle Association has brought its nation into disrepute.

with publication of the slogan that
"the only thing that can stop a bad man with a gun is a good man with a gun".

How can the United States of America be or become a nation of peace,
with values such as this?

Peace, real meaningful and lasting peace, 
does not come from the barrel of a gun.
It comes from the heart - 
from believing in doing unto others
only that which you would have done to yourself.

If the NRA believes in gunning down human beings,
do they wish themselves and their families to be gunned down too?

To read about the Australian situation
and gun politics (yes, Oz too has gun politics)
Then move on to reading about
This tiny party is highly influential in Australia's largest state, NSW.
It holds a balance of power in NSW's Legislative Council,
and the conservative Liberal National Party Government
is beholden to them -
as was the Australian Labor Party before it.
Because of this, the NSW Government is allowing hunting in National Parks.
