', "The Post's Kevin Sullivan reported that the 1996 massacre had united Australians on the gun debate.", "The mass shooting has rattled Australia, where lawmakers passed some of the world's most restrictive gun-control laws after a 1996 massacre in Tasmania.“'Shocking' is about the only word,” resident Felicity Haynes told 9 News Australia. “I just feel sick to the stomach."

'There was, of course, opposition to the new gun restrictions: Gun owners argued that the laws would not reduce gun crime and would unfairly penalize law-abiding sport-shooters. ', "As The Washington Post reported, soon after the 1996 incident, John Howard, who was elected as Australia's prime minister that year, enacted strict gun control legislation."
