Australia’s rising gun ownership

April 15, 2019 -- After rigorous gun legislation brought in after the Port Arthur massacre, gun ownership numbers are creeping back up to their former levels.

A drive-by shooting in Melbourne killed a security guard and wounded three others in one of the main entertainment precincts on Sunday.

Recently, attention has been drawn to Australasia’s gun ownership numbers following a mass shooting in New Zealand, in March, that killed 50 people.

Australia suffered one of its worst massacres in 1996 when Martin Bryant went on a shooting and stabbing rampage in Port Arthur, Tasmania – killing 35 people and wounding a further 23 individuals.

Following the incident, fundamental changes to Australian gun control laws were made.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
