Like I said, rigorous and expensive regulations aside, a swimming
pool can be owned in Australia. As opposed to owning a semi-automatic
firearm for defensive purposes.

**Correct. OTOH, pools are rarely used in the commission of homicides.
Firearms have been and still are a common method of committing homicide.
Additionally, firearms are hardly ever effective for defensive purposes.

They're NOT (hardly ever effective)? Of course! <smacking myself on
the forehead> I keep forgetting you Aussies are different..

**Nope. In the US there are 200 KNOWN DGUs each year.

So Trevor, how many of these 200 did NOT involve a dead body?


Care to site the source and show me that you don't count only dead bodies?
