Gun Violence and Gun Laws in Australia
State Sen. David Shoebridge from New South Wales, Australia is visiting Denver and has agreed to talk about gun violence and gun laws in his country. Please join us!
Sen. Shoebridge has represented the Greens in the NSW Parliament since 2010 and is his party’s spokesperson for Justice and Gun Control. After the Port Arthur massacre in 1996, Australia enacted strong gun regulations, particularly banning assault rifles. Sen. Shoebridge will talk about their current laws, how they came about, outcomes from it (Australia hasn’t had a mass shooting since the 1996 laws), and the growing and disturbing gun culture in Australia, perpetuated by compliant elected officials.
Following Sen. Shoebridge’s presentation, there will be a brief discussion of U.S. and Colorado election results and the path forward.
