Seven Dead in Western Australia Mass Shooting. Yes, Mass Shooting.

‘Seven people found dead in mass Western Australia tragedy in a home near Margaret River.’ How awful. But what caused this tragedy? Was it a traffic accident? A carbon monoxide leak or a house fire? No. The cryptic “tragedy” that happened in the Western Australia town of Osmington was a mass shooting.

A FAMILY of seven including four children have been found dead with gunshot wounds at a rural property in southwest Australia.

The children died with their mother and grandparents.

The three generations had moved in 2015 to Osmington, a village of fewer than 700 people near the tourist town of Margaret River, to grow fruit, media reported.

But wait. We’re told by those here in America who would disarm us that things like that don’t happen any more in Australia. Not after much of the population was disarmed by requiring them to sell their firearms to the government after the Port Arthur massacre in 1996.

“Police are currently responding to what I can only describe as an horrific incident in Osmington, 20km northeast of Margaret River,” (WA Police Commissioner Chris Dawson) said.

“It is early in this investigation. Based on what we do know, this is clearly a tragedy.

Two firearms were found at the scene of the apparent a murder-suicide. Which one of the dead was the shooter hasn’t been made public yet.

Commissioner Dawson told media that the bodies had “gunshot wounds”.

Katrina Miles and her four children aged eight to 13 were found at the property.

Along with Ms. Miles’ parents. Mass murders — committed both with and without firearms — still happen in the nation of 24 million people, despite some of the strictest gun control laws in the world.

There have been other multiple fatal shootings since 1996, however none has involved the killing of more than four people.

The most victims in a shooting was in 2014, when Greg Hunt killed his wife and three children with single gunshots in Lockhart, NSW, before turning his weapon on himself.

Three years earlier, in a suburb of Adelaide, Donato Corbo shot and killed three people and injured three others, including two police officers who had arrived on the scene.

In 2002, Huan Yun “Allen” Xian killed two people and injured another five when he used a handgun to opened fire on a classroom at Monash University in Melbourne.

There have been other massacres in the past two decades that have not involved firearms. In 2017, Dimitrious Gargasoulas allegedly murdered six people when he drove a car on the footpath of Melbourne’s Bourke Street.

Another horrendous multiple killing was in 2014, when Raina Thaiday stabbed eight children to death, seven of them her own, at a home in Cairns.

          Gun control WILL work to stop murders… eventually. After all the citizens are helpless, the predators will rape, rob, and kill them all. Then, with no one left to prey upon, and with nothing left to steal, they will kill each other. Then, with all the humans dead, there will be no more killings.
          One just needs to know how to translate politician. That is the utopia they are working so hard on. Human extinction. They don’t know it, OFC. They think it will just be a return to a world of the rulers and the slaves, like Ancient Rome.

      BlazinTheAmazin,

      While respect for the dead is a nice sentiment, respect for the living still among us is an even more important sentiment.

      As “distasteful” as it might be to shout the truth from the rooftops, we must nevertheless shout the truth from the rooftops because state-worshipers are pulling out all the stops to come after us.

      1. avatar BlazinTheAmazin says:

        I don’t disagree, and trust me, I advocate for our cause as much as humanly possible. My comment was more of a “time and place” statement. For example, we all know that a young woman who is raped and murdered would have been better served by owning and learning to use a firearm. However, I would contend that it would be inappropriate to show up to the woman’s funeral and tell family members how she should have been armed.

        Also, I stated as much in my first line.

  4. avatar Jim B says:

    Don’t get like the MSM with misleading headlines. A murder-suicide is not a mass shooting.

    1. avatar Brian says:

      Wouldn’t that make all but 2 of our recent mass shootings a murder-suicide because all but 2 mass shooters have killed themselves after they killed all the others? The nutjob who shot up the Colorado movie theater and the recent guy from Parkland are the only killers I know of who have been caught and not shot themselves after the fact.

    2. avatar FedUp says:

      I’d exclude family matters from ‘mass shootings’.

    3. avatar john y says:

      That depends on whose definition of “Mass Shooting” you use. By the FBI definition, then no this is not a mass shooting since it was all family related. By Brady Campaign et al, then yes this is a mass shooting. In either case, the suicide is not a factor in the determination of mass shooting categorization.
      Major differences between how they count: BC includes gang violence, robbery, riots, all other crimes, family murders and the perpetrator is included in the headcount (suicide, shoot by LEO or civilian) with greater than 2 to victims being the criteria; FBI counts incidents where there 4 or more victims (this may have been changed to 3 per some sources), the shooting itself was main intent and not other crimes, family killings and does not include perpetrator in headcount. There may be other differences, but these I have been able to verify.

    4. avatar todd says:

      Yeah, I don’t believe murders all within a family qualify as a mass shooting (unless you are on the left and wanting to pad numbers).

    5. avatar ACP_arms says:

      So because a killer knows or is related to the victims it is no longer a mass murder, but if someone goes out and kills random strangers is a mass murder?

      Why, it is the same act in both cases, knowing or relation to the victims doesn’t change that.

    If you look up Timeline of Major Crimes in Australia in Wikipedia, you will find that Australia has had about a dozen public shootings since they banned and confiscated guns. They get away with saying they haven’t had a mass public shooting because the shooters, who were shooting people in a public space, had yet to kill more than 4 people. They had guns, they were shooting people in a public space, yet they don’t count because the shooter was a bad shot, or didn’t want to kill more people. The gun ban did not stop mass public shootings in Australia, that lie has to be attacked head on.

  11. avatar 2aguy says:

    Here…from the Timeline of major crimes in Australia in wikipedia..3 August 1999 – La Trobe University shooting – Jonathan Brett Horrocks walked into the cafeteria in La Trobe university in Melbourne Victoria armed with a 38 caliber revolver handgun and opened fire killing Leon Capraro the boss and manager off the cafeteria and wounding a woman who was a student at the university………21 October 2002 – Monash University shooting – Huan Xiang opened fire in a tutorial room, killing two and injuring five………26 May 2002 – A Vietnamese man walked into a Vietnamese wedding reception in Cabramatta Sydney, New South Wales armed with a handgun and opened fire wounding seven people……18 June 2007 – Melbourne CBD shooting – Christopher Wayne Hudson opened fire on three people, killing one and seriously wounding two others who intervened when Hudson was assaulting his girlfriend at a busy Melbourne intersection during the morning peak. He gave himself up to police in Wallan, Victoria on 20 June.[71]…….28 April 2012 – A man opened fire in a busy shopping mall in Robina on the Gold Coast shooting Bandidos bikie Jacques Teamo. A woman who was an innocent bystander was also injured from a shotgun blast to the leg. Neither of the victims died, but the incident highlighted the recent increase in gun crime across major Australian cities including Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide.[citation needed]………..8 March 2013 – Queen Street mall siege – Lee Matthew Hiller entered the shopping mall on Queen Street Brisbane Queensland armed with a revolver and threatened shoppers and staff with the revolver, causing a 90-minute siege which ended when Hiller was shot and wounded in the arm by a police officer from the elite Specialist Emergency Response Team. Hiller was then later taken to hospital and was treated for his injury; he pleaded gulity to 20 charges and was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in jail with a non-parole period of two years and three months.[citation needed]
    And these aren’t all of them…….the lie that Australian gun control stopped mass public shootings has to end….

        No you lose ignoramus.

        Australia is far from a homogeneous country. It was settled by people from many nations in Europe and has an indigenous native population as well. I get a little sick of you racist Morons always referring to other countries as different because they have a different culture. Did it ever occur to you racists that all people belong to the human race and they have the same failings that we do such as jealousy, rage, greed, selfishness, mentally ill people etc. etc. I get the same Morons like you responding to the debate over Japanese gun control that has been so successful.

        Now pay attention Jethro the same gun control laws have been practiced by many countries down through the years crossing many cultures and continents and have worked very well in reducing child accidental shooting, theft of guns, and prohibited persons not being able to purchase guns and guess what Genius the same laws worked in all countries and could work here to its just that they are long overdue.

        Oh and you just could not resist with the Trumpite hysteria over people crossing our border, you know the illegal immigrants and the legal immigrants and legal refugees who you also are paranoid about. Real facts Moron. This country was settled by refugees and immigrants both legal and illegal and despite your rampant Hitlerite/Trumpite racial garbage all of them assimilated and continue to assimilate beautifully. Southern Michigan and Upper Ohio have multitudes of stores run by Muslims and even entire city councils. Our produce is largely picked by immigrants willing to work in the hot sun for low wages while home hatched hillbillies would not think of working so hard. My dentist happens to be a recent immigrant, my nurse at the hospital was a very young Muslim girl and took excellent care of me and was very polite. My postman is Muslim and another is Nigerian. One of my doctors is from India and another from Britain ans another from Japan.

        Next time before shooting off your racist mouth study the real history of Australia right now I am sure most of them are laughing and saying “typical racist and ignorant American Hillbilly shooting off his big mouth”

        Your the perfect poster boy for use in teaching our children how far we have to go to change the lower class hillbilly culture full of hatred for any religion, culture or way of life different from their out house mentality. Sorry but we will not revive the history of Nazi Germany for you or anyone else.

People there think it’s an honor to commit suicide. Yeah whatever. Oh and your little Muslim friends. Let’s see aren’t they the ones who think child brides are OK. Just sayin Megan.

          we have vast problems with the “natives” here because of all the had outs and crime across the board has increased dramatically since our “NFA” which was not a f%$#@&g agreement but forced on us basically at gunpoint. the federal govt has unlawfully usurped the states right to taxation (taxation was a state issue not federal and the only power of taxation they were given under the constitution was import/export duties and excise on hard liquor) they had also just implemented GST and threatened the states with not getting any of the tax revenue if they did not comply. what the states should have done is succeeded and done their own thing thus removing the federal govts power. all Australian states have at least one major port except the ACT which is the home of the federal govt.
          before this home invasions were unheard of. they are now common place. murder has gone up (including with firearms). our stats for gun deaths included suicides and accidents and suicides were 70% of the of that. did gun deaths drop by 70% no they continued the same downward trend as before only with suicide by gun now being statistically insignificant. that means that actual murders with firearms has to have gone up especially as accidental shootings have also gone down. now also at that time “better” suicide prevention programs were put in place but they have not dropped but have also gone up. it is just that other means than gun are now the norm. B&E has gone way up as well and i have reported several in my lifetime and have never had the cops show up to investigate take fingerprints or even make any show of trying to solve the crime. you are a complete and utter fucktard if you think the gun laws have solved a goddamn thing in australia. there have been a couple of your comments i could almost respect….. this trash has lost any respect you had gained from me

      They have 7 dead because of the particular circumstances of the incident, which seems to be targeted at a specific family.

        Wrong they have not had a mass murder of large amounts of people since they passed their gun control laws after the horrific incident they had some decades ago. They did something about it and it worked we did nothing and mass shootings go on and on and on.

        1. avatar Jeep1967 says:

          Please look at the number of mass killings in Australia before the 1996 gun laws were passed. Is it more, less, or the same as after? It looks like mass killings continued at about the same rate, but guns may have been used a little less frequently. Thier gun law did nothing to stop the behavior of mass killings, it only slightly influenced the weapon used. And no, the mass killing with guns were not more deadly than the other means of killing.

        Your response proves that you are so ignorant you simply cannot believe that anyone who is not of your SS Hitler mentality simply could not be a U.S. Citizen nor own a firearm because he does not salute Trump with a stiff armed salute. Surprise Genius but gun owners come from all categories of political beliefs and parties. And there are to this very day Conservative Democrats that are very pro-gun. If you were an NRA member you cheap skate you would get a list of all the candidates and their ratings and you would have been aware of this.

        And we Socialists would like to “kick your Hitlerite Ass out” because we are the “True Americans” who believe in equal rights for all of our citizens not just the Trumpite torch carrying Nazi filth who marched in North Carolina. Kicking your ass out would make America a civilized country to live in.

      And his name is Obama the last “real and educated President we had”. He was right the other countries that have passed civilized gun control laws do not have 50 and 60 people being gunned down at one time every other week like we do nor the mass school shootings either.

      When was the last time you saw a mass shooting of any type, school or otherwise in Japan. Answer: Gun Control and Zero mass shootings and yes contrary to ignorant hill jack belief the Japanese do indeed own rifles and shotguns.

      Ditto for Britain who had a mass school shooting decades ago. Result: Gun Control and no more mass shootings in decades and not just in schools. The recent bridge incident in Britain was another shining example of “gun control being a success” as the nut cases that tried to murder the people in the bar were prevented even from getting shotguns because of their very thorough advanced vetting process and when the nut cases used knives the bar patrons rose up from their tables busted beer bottles into weapons along with chairs and kicked the fk out of them. It never would have turned out so well if they had no gun control laws there.

      Germany had one several decades ago and the result: Gun Control which included safety training and rigorous vetting. Again successful and yes Germans still own lots of guns proving if you do gun control right you can reduce mass shootings without taking all the guns away. This seems to be beyond the mentality of the Hillbilly mind here in the U.S. of Morons.

          Can you really be that stupid when it comes to Chicago and the gun problem there? Obviously so for Blaming Obama gives you the “Moron of the year award”. Chicago has a gun violence problem precisely because as Obama said “I can legally only do so much” and he went on to say that it must come from new Federal Laws being past which would choke off the plethora of weapons that flow into Chicago from States that have lax gun laws i.e. no vetting of second hand sales which accounts according to police tracings for many of the murder weapons used by gangs.

          As far as Obama shedding tears he proved he was a caring human being and we all admired him for that. Contrast this with Herr Drumpf who tried to hid his German heritage by lying he was part Swedish but he acts and thinks exactly like Hitler did with no compassion or empathy for the human race.

          And to answer your question, Damn straight he was my president as he saved my life by attacking and defeating the corrupt greed monger insurance companies by making them do away with medical caps which made insurance programs an obscene joke and also did away with pre-existing conditions which made a mockery of the Insurance industry. And Obama never wanted Obama care but he took what he could get after greed monger gangster criminal Republicans blocked his plan for a true National Health Care System that the rest of the civilized world has had for over 100 years. I think the Far Right by not bothering to study the history of European and even Japanese health care only shout to the world that if the Republicans (like the Nazi’s) tell the big lie about health care often enough “the unwashed” believe it hook line and sinker.

          No no Megan “the kid” Kelly. DUMBAMA’s tears were a fake political act. No more no less. Much like your comments they have no real merit except to incite the masses. Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation but the timid government of its city fails to protect its citizens.
          As for DUMBAMA Care, for every meth nut case like you who espouses its benefits there are hundreds of thousands who suffer under it s its suffocating rates. You really need to research the validity of social medicine in other countries and find out how screwed up the system is. For starters try Sweden.
          Time to go back to the political science class you teach. At least you can convince some of your brain washed students.

Maybe you should think about ” voluntary psychiatric” commitment… Have your “DNC/ parent guardian” make you a “prohibited person” please…Because we all know here on the TTAG comments section that most “Mass Murders” are caused by Deranged, Broken, Mentally Disturbed Democratic constituents….

          Yes tell me how much of a liberal Dillon Roof was. He was right up your alley, minority hating, refugee hating, immigrant hating. Republican Racist Conservative equals HItlerite Nazi.

          Or tell me about the nut case that shot up a health clinic and killed people while ranting incoherently “save the babies”.

          Or tell me about the nut case that killed people coming out of an American Sikh Church because he hated any religion or anyone that was not pure “hill jack”.

          Or tell me about the Conservative Nazi Lunatic on the buss that tried to kill two girls just because he thought they might be of the Muslim faith and they when two decent men tried to stop it he stabbed both of them to death.

          Shall I go on Genius or do you need more examples of Right Wing Mass Murdering nut cases. I am sure you would like to hear more about your heroes.

        Crisco i would not wipe my ass with the bit of paper that said he had an education worth shit. all the documents that he ever presented as “evidence” were identified as forgeries by independent document experts and he spent quite a few million keeping his education history from public scrutiny. no other president has ever tried to do that let alone succeeded.

    I thought the left-wing progressive press might keep this incident bottled up, buried, or otherwise suppressed, but here it is from today’s online version of the Washington Post (aka Pravda-on-the-Potomac), albeit with an anti-gun twist:

    So vile. The worst part is the first thought is “guns!” Or in this case trying to hide that a gun was used, since it doesn’t fit the narrative. The story here is that 6 people were murdered, not the means of doing it. I know it’s not new, but the politicization of everything is tiresome.

    Wave your magic wand and remove all the guns in the world. Wanna know what nirvana to a gun controller looks like? Medieval europe is what it looks like. Men with edged weapons and clubs killing, looting and raping who ever they please.

    All those women shouting about womens rights and doing away with guns are in for a real rude wake up call if their dream comes true. Welcome back to chattel.

    You missed the 15 people killed June 2000 Childers backpacker fire in your list. Still the second biggest mass murder of any kind in Australia. Ignored by media as it doesn’t fit the guns narrative.

    Western Australia is the California of Australia for firearms. Guns have been controlled and licensed for over 87 years there since 1931. The chances are it was done by weapons on what they call a “rural use” or farm license. Of course nothing stopped you from driving interstate and buying until 1996.

    Police are now calling this a murder suicide. One of the byproducts of the gun laws here is that people who have mental issues do not seek help as they would lose their license. Rural Australia has a very low doctor rate and almost no mental health services. Which leads to a large number of suicides.

      Sounds like a failure of socialized medicine. Again. Still.

      1. avatar Toni says:

        agree completely. i hate the medical system here. would not like it much more in the states either but it is to my mind somewhat better as there is a little more choice and you can still get decent painkillers without prescription. here you now need a prescription for nurofen plus

    Dan sorry not Dean. Will blame auto correct

  26. avatar Land Down Under says:

    Australia allows gun ownership, though it’s more restrictive than the U.S. In Western Australia alone there are over 80,000 registered firearm owners.

    Well, now we have 1 mass shooting that happened before the ban

    And 1 that happened after

    Not so much socialised medicine as none in some rural areas I have worked in. Possibly has doctor or nurse visit once a week.

    Doctors usually have large student loans to pay so they don’t want to be in a town of 700 or less. Might be there if they are on one of the government paid for university schemes.

    I imagine all the usual antis will use this to harass legal owners.

      i live in alice where there is abig hospital and quite a few doctors. it is a last resort when i even think about going to see any of them. got bitten by a dog recently (was not deliberate on my dogs part as he just got a little over hyped while roughhousing with me and tore a chunk out of the inside of left pointer finger. doctors would have said at least five stitches. i refused to see them and it is healing nicely. my parther had a couple cysts on her boob that had to be cut out. 3 months later and it is still healing up and it was a week ago with the dog bite. her boob ended up infected because of superbugs at the hospital

  29. avatar Clarence Worley says:

    It’s been 22 years since the last time there was a mass shooting there, unlike here, where they happen at least once a week. Stop being idiots.
