A pinner said, 'Our former conservative Prime Minister, John Howard, in Australia introduced gun control very quickly after a terrible massacre in 1996, and it completely ended the run of mass shootings we'd experienced over the previous few years. Just sayin' ' That is very true

Australia's most needlessly wasteful spending took place under the John Howard-led Coalition government rather than under the Whitlam, Rudd or Gillard Labor governments, an international study has found.
