In the wake of the school massacre in Oregon, President Obama cited Australia as a country whose lead the U.S. could follow for “common sense” gun reform.
Hours later, a 15-year-old boy in Australia walked into a police station and shot an employee dead.
9 News reported:
The gunman who shot dead a police employee at a station in Sydney’s west yesterday has been identified as a radicalised 15-year-old boy of Iraqi-Kurdish origin.
The black-clad teen approached the NSW Police Charles Street headquarters in Parramatta at about 4.30pm yesterday and executed finance worker Curtis Cheng at point-blank range.
Security guards and police officers returned fire from the building’s lobby, with a special constable killing the armed teen.
NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione said today initial investigations suggested the boy was working alone in an act of terrorism.
Twitter users wanted to know how this could possibly happen in a utopian gun-free nation.

All of Australia’s utterly draconian gun control laws did a LOT of good stopping a Muslim terrorist from killing a Sydney police official. — JIm Black (@Rebel4Texas) October 3, 2015
