    Well there are guns, out in farmland and in shooting clubs, but unlike America we have much stricter rules, and every single man woman and child doesn't have a whole stash of firearms. We also have a lot less shootings so I guess it's working.

    Europe ususally has very strict rules, and there are shootings...

    on the other hand in CH every male citizen has a gun, but the're less shootings than in Germany or Frannce...

    What's CH? Also, America has some of the loosest gun rules in the Western world, and for just one example, they have had more school shootings than the rest of the world's countries combined. Strict gun laws do work.

    There are loads fewer gun-related incidents in Europe.

    All men in Switzerland are basically in the home guard, so they have their guns. And many people do get guns illegally: one guy in Belgium was 'collecting' them, was supposed to turn them in to the army, then went on a rampage in Liège with an assault rifle and some grenades. He had a rocket launcher in his flat.

    Then a guy in France killed some Jewish children and Algerian soldiers. He'd stolen a gun when he was in the army and just went out.

    And there is going to be voting as to whether guns will be allowed to all in Ausrtalia (North East I believe), and even letting children have them.

    As to what you posted Mub: very similar in Belgium. Our PM is an atheist italian gay immigrant. Beat that people!

    Jail doesn't exist for our politicians. It seems as if they're all above the law, sadly. :(

    Most people don't even know it's an ad until the very end. Well played Metro, well played.

    And show me an Aussie who doesn't have a "freaking out about an unepected huntsman spider" story to tell, and I'll show you an Aussie who hasn't lived here for very long :D They might be harmless but they can still scare the **** out of you when one pops out to say hello and you're not expecting it!!!

    Also, why kill it? If it's on your property call a professional to re-home it. There's no reason to kill them.

    I wouldn't think there is a "professional" anywhere nearby. However I will only try to kill it if I see it...
