    And according to the quote below, it would seem that firearm use isn't all that uncommon, something those here who dote on an Australian style Gun Control idea never seem to talk about.

    I’d rather be shot than raped half to death then slowly fed, feet first into a commercial wood chipper....... we all know how those Aussies are.

    Having taught a Australian Defense Force national and getting insight on his country, they don't have a ban on guns, just their use and storage as well as other restrictions on mag sizes, etc..

    No doubt, but the gun control agenda here loves to hold it up high as a gold standard which is mainly my point.

    "Regional and rural areas are particularly vulnerable to these sorts of tragedies, because of the combination of isolation, sometimes mental or financial hardship and easy access to firearms," Less said in a statement.

    Well Less,

    Since they aren't looking for any suspects, I'm assuming the mother killed the grandparents, then the kids before taking her own life. I remember a time they just called that murder/suicide, not mass shooting.
