Australia Suffering from Drive By Shootings, Piers Morgan Claims Gun Control Works

If you weren’t paying attention to professional CNN clown and disgraced Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan, he’s back to his favorite thing, demanding that the bloody yanks get gun control now.

Every time someone gets shot, Old Piers hops into his GunControlMobile, rides over excitedly to the Time Warner studios off Central Park and begins spewing more hysteria, because it’s the only reason anyone watches him. It’s either that or his patented awkward interviews with famous people.

An Australian baseball player was shot by three ghetto thugs who were bored. So Piers Morgan has already begun shrieking about gun control.

 

Actually, as I wrote in the past, America doesn’t have a gun problem. It has a gang problem. So does Australia. That’s why the Sydney Morning Herald is declaring it the Year of the Gun in Sydney.

Another night, another drive-by killing. Sydney is effortlessly maintaining its reputation as the national capital of things that go bang in the night.

Late on Monday when many people were watching Please Marry My Boy, Bassil Hijazi, 18, was executed in a public car park in Bexley. Two weeks before, he had been shot in the neck when assailants had rained bullets on his car. He had links with the Comanchero bikie gang.

Meanwhile, minutes before on Monday night, Vasko Boskovski, 35, was shot to death in nearby Earlwood. The businessman was also known to police.

The common denominator is immigrant crime and gang violence. Much as it is in the United States. According to Piers Morgan, Australia’s gun control works.

 

In real life, it’s the Year of the Gun.

Year of the gun: Sydney in grip of upswing in shooting crime

The killings are not related but they confirm perceptions that drive-by shootings and gun crime have become an entrenched part of Australian lowlife.

A volatile mix of bikie gangs, drugs, ethnic rivalries and a 265 per cent rise in the number of handgun thefts threatens to turn Sydney into the East LA on the western side of the Pacific.

This year there have been 72 shootings in public places. Eight people have died in such incidents. On 28 other occasions at least one person has been wounded.

Gun control. It just works.
