Prime Minister Scott Morrison says he is taking a stand to ensure that people are safe from spree shootings in shopping centres, after a chat with his wife regarding this issue last night.
It is believed that Morrison was reportedly standing outside a shopping centre in his home electorate last night, with a loaded AR15, and was preparing to begin firing it indiscriminately at shoppers.
It is believed that the Prime Minister thought there was nothing wrong with his intentions at the time, even though he was holding a Bushmaster AR-15 semi-automatic rifle, which is considered highly illegal in all states of Australia.
Luckily, he was stopped by his wife, who gently urged him to think about it through a critical lens, and ultimately convincing him to not commit the mass murder of his own constituents.
Speaking this morning, the Prime Minister said a conversation with his wife Jenny changed his perspective.
“Jenny and I spoke last night,” he said.
“And she said to me, ‘You have to think about this as a father first. What would you want to happen if it were our family in that mall when you started firing an illegal machine gun into the crowd”
“Jenny has a way of clarifying things; she always has.”
Mr Morrison said he wanted to make sure any person in a shopping centre, including his wife and daughters if they went down that path, were confident about their safety – and safe from being shot at by a gunman
