Part of the point of the Gonne in Men At Arms is that there is just one. It's better not to have any than to give everyone one. Like nuclear weapons - would the world be a safer place if every country had some? Was the world a safer place when just one country had some? :)

Holy shattered misconceptions!

Downunda is the last place I thought would have tough gun laws. I'd always thought of Australia as the land of tough, rugged, good-looking, hard-drinking individualists and liberatarians who went around shooting and beating the tar out of helpless animals and each other with carefree impunity. Kind of like Texas but with kangaroos.

I stand corrected.

:D

Well, that's just my interpretation. Terry might think differently. :lol:

Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.
