    implemented after the ban was.

    the ban went through because australia never had anything comparable to the second amendment.

    and its population is 1/13th ours, despite its size.  and despite its size, it still fits inside texas + one smallish state.  direct comparisons like this are silly.

      comparison I made. I noted the size difference and simply said--or implied--that it was a large fraction.

      When I said 1/15th the size I meant 1/15th the population.

      Australia is 3/4 the area and about 1/14th the population.
