Is the Australian gun control system working or are we over regulating honest individuals and industry to pander to an emotive argument

Millions of dollars are spent every year regulating firearms ownership for no obvious measurable or verifiable benefits. Has it stopped massacres on Australian soil and are the increases/decreases in crime related? Also with the claims by the government that lone wolf terrorist attacks are becoming increasingly more likely do we need to rethink self defence? To quote David Leyonhjelm are we “a nation of victims”

Asked by:

What's more important: answers, or questions? Are the ‘big’ questions - life, the universe, everything - more important than ‘little’ ones? Does a good question provoke debate or laughter, lead to certain answers or create reflective pause? Can it change laws, minds or lives? Are questions the best answers?

The Interrobang – a new festival from the Wheeler Centre – is looking for the best questions in the world.
