    Do they call that site the conservative treehouse because it is full of nuts and bats?

    You know what I did NOT see on that footage? Police kneeling on protestors backs. I did NOT see tear gas and Tasers used in fact I did see people marching and swearing at top of thier lungs in a city struggling with a highly transmissible virus

    Many conservatives hate our guts because of the gun reform thing. Despite how many times we have stood by and fought next to America in their eyes we are worse that the worst totalitarian regime because we “banned guns” - which in itself is a Furphy (lie)

    Yeah that’s a terrible reason to hate Australia. The simpsons episode had a lot of good reasons.

    @Lil Mike asked "What was the lie that you think may be worthy of a defamation suit?" to @Bowerbird.

    He asked you "It doesn't seem like you have any factual disagreements with Tucker's report, more like you were justifying it, so...what's the problem?"

    I know I asked what it was I said which 'seemed' to be in agreement with Carlson, and I did not receive a reply. I sure was not justifying one word Carlson said. What he said was contrived hyperbolic rubbish in virtually its entirety.

    False. They may disagree and even hate the law but they certainly don't "hate your guts" because of it. That was hyperbolic to claim such.

    And no, its not false that your government banned guns. They did. Yes, you're allowed certain types of guns. If you're occupations requires it (such as a security guard), or are a primary producer. NEVER for self defense. And none of the guns allowed would give your government pause if they decided to go full totalitarian. Hell, they even regulate the LOOKS of a gun. I believe its unofficially called the "Appearance Law" or some such? Basically if it even looks like a military styled gun then they can classify it as being illegal for a civilian to have, doesn't matter if it mechanically functions like any other type of weapon that a civilian may normally be allowed.

    Now...wth is a "Furphy"?

    The 'furphy' (a lie) is that we have banned ALL guns. That is bullshit. As for 'appearance law,' have a read.

    https://www.ssaa.org.au/?ss_news=clarity-needed-on-confusing-appearance-laws

    I am about to legally acquire a .410 lever action shotgun primarily for defence at home. Simple to do. And legal. All I have to do is join the SSAA (done) and go to a safety lesson (yet to do.)

    You do know that something being "hyperbolic" means that there is some truth to it? That the person using it is exaggerating? Its like Bowerbirds previous post where he says many conservatives hate Australians guts because of the gun laws enacted. That was hyperbolic. Yes, some may hate your guts because of it, but not "many". I've got a feeling that the only reason he used "many" is to give himself wiggle room and he probably would have preferred to use "all" but knew he'd be called to prove such. Something he of course couldn't do.

    Carlson was over the top, large. As @Bowerbird said in some post, there is a minute, less than molecular size, scintilla of truth in some of what Carlson said, but the overall thrust is total gibber and rubbish....bullshit of the first order, a deliberate concocted smear. Fuq him and the horse he rode in on.

    Everyone knows that Australia didn't ban "all" guns. But they certainly have banned all guns that would prove a threat to the government. That is what is meant when most conservatives talk about the ban Australia instituted. Like your .410 lever shot gun, allowed a max of 5 rounds is certainly not going to give your government pause. (classified as category B isn't it?) And you had to prove a genuine need to get your gun. What was that need? Care to share? Here's a list...

    LINK: What are the laws in Australia for obtaining a firearm? (guncontrolaustralia.org) (note: that is a website that is pushing for more gun control...not a conservative site)

    Note that not one bit is about defense. Unless you consider "pest control" defense? Only other "defense" possibilities would be business or employment, rural occupation, animal welfare.

    Scintilla? I'd say more than that.

    Thanks for that. It's obvious they don't like to debate some people just so they don't have to debate them.

    The ignore should only be used for harassing and trolling people and not for those who are better at debating.

    Australia is a mess and Tucker was correct about that. I am so glad I don't live there.

    No problem. There is only one reason that I would use the ignore button. For those that prove themselves to be despicable. And by that I'm talking the worst of the worst. Pedophiles. I generally won't put anyone else on ignore. Some times I do for other reasons but only for a short while. Never permanently.

    I have never put anyone on ignore. I'm here to debate everyone. I agree with you.

    Lil Mike had some good questions and I was curious as to why they were ignoring them. Now we know.

    The SSAA is a recreational shooting club. I will be able to get the .410 legally and retain it at home. Therefore, if a need arises and defence of self in home is required, I'll be breaking no law to use it.

    So, you're using the excuse of recreational shooting club to justify having a gun to your government. But the real reason you want it is for is self defense.

    ....

    In other words you are lying to the government. Bypassing what you think is an unjust law.... funny that. You know...considering you tried to chastise me on doing that very thing.

    No, I am complying with the Law to the letter, completely, to suit my purposes, legally. If that avenue was not available, I'd accept it.

    It might suit you to re-write my motives but that does not work. Silly strawman stuff.

    You clearly missed the video in the article.

    I see several takedowns.
