Senseless killing may result in Australian tourist boycott.
CNN: They were younger than him, just teenagers who were driving around, apparently bored and looking for somebody to kill, according to police in Duncan, Oklahoma.
The indiscriminate shooting of Christopher Lane, a 23-year-old Australian who was living his dream of studying in the U.S. on a baseball scholarship, has repulsed many in his home country and led to calls for Australian tourists to boycott the United States.
"It is another example of murder mayhem on Main Street," former Australian deputy Prime Minister Tim Fischer told CNN’s Piers Morgan.
"People thinking of going to the USA for business or tourists trips should think carefully about it given the statistical fact you are 15 times more likely to be shot dead in the USA than in Australia per capita per million people."
Thanks to our insanely loose gun laws, America is quickly earning a reputation as a place too dangerous to visit. The right thinks that guns keep us safer — everyone else in the world sees that the opposite is true.
Mostly because it’s so damned obvious.
