Norway now overtakes Australia’s tragic record of being the place of the worst lone gunman massacre in the Western world, eclipsing Martin Bryant’s massacre at Port Arthur in 1996, where 35 people were killed. It is unclear at this stage what firearms were used, but still the National Coalition for Gun Control is concerned. They point out that New South Wales Parliament has before it the Firearms Amendment Bill 2011. The Bill seeks to drastically erode NSW firearm laws, including allowing more general access to high-powered military style firearms and the ability to acquire air files without a criminal record check. Time Brunero spoke to Samantha Lee the Co-Chair of the National Coalition for Gun Control, and he asked her how we changed the laws after Port Arthur.
