Former Sydney Deputy Mayor: Lift Gun Ban so Australians Can Defend Themselves

Former Sydney Deputy Mayor: Lift Gun Ban so Australians Can Defend Themselves

In the wake of the December 15 hostage situation in which an armed man held unarmed Australians at gunpoint for hours, former Sydney Deputy Mayor Nick Adams is calling for a gun ban to be lifted so Australians can defend themselves. 

Adams said he believes if there was ever a time Australians wanted to have a gun, it was December 15. 

He told Fox News that he thinks gun laws will soon be revisited–that “Australians are now beginning to realize what it is for the bad guys to have guns and for the good people not to.” He said a lot of Australians woke up when the crisis was over and thought about how different things “could have been if someone did have a gun on them to stop this terrible, awful ordeal.”

“Why should we give advantage to the bad guys, whether they’re criminals … [or] they’re terrorists?” he asked.

Adams said the hostage situation helped Australians realize that gun control is “enabling the bad people to carry out their agenda a lot more easily, a lot more freely than they may otherwise have.”
