Posted November 18, 2018 05:33:37A lot of people think the gun laws in Australia are very lenient.
But that’s not always the case.
There are some states that actually criminalise the possession of guns, and many others that make it illegal to have one.
What follows are a few stories about what’s going on in Australia and around the world.
What is a ‘good Samaritan’?
A ‘good samoritan’ is a person who provides aid to someone in need.
In the UK, that’s a person with an obligation to give their own money and goods to someone else.
The law in New Zealand allows a person to be guilty of ‘failing to provide’ if they fail to assist another person who has a ‘well-founded fear of bodily harm or serious injury’ to ‘reasonably believe’ someone else is in imminent danger of bodily or mental harm or is about to be harmed.
A ‘lawful good Samaritan’ can be someone who has been injured by an accident, or has been the victim of a crime, or is a victim of abuse or neglect.
If someone who is the victim is injured or abused, they can be sued for damages, and a court can award them money.
In the US, a ‘lawfully injured person’ is someone who suffers damage or loss to their body or health because of an accident or the abuse of drugs or alcohol.
They can be compensated for the loss of their body.
In Australia, if a ‘lover’ or ‘friend’ of a ‘person injured by a crime’ or a ‘victim of abuse’ does something to cause the injury or harm to their person, they are a ‘reasonable’ person who should be compensated.
They may be entitled to legal aid, or they may be able to apply to a court for compensation, but the law in Australia is very clear that they cannot be sued or prosecuted.
