How about hardware barns, though? They’re like lolly shops for out-of-control suburbanites who thirst to harm imagined enemies and innocent bystanders: very, very sharp things; very, very sharp and turbo powered things; kilometres of electrical wiring; poisons galore; carnivorous plants. Huge great panes of glass, for heaven’s sake, glass by the bloody meter! And steel-capped boots available to anyone with $19.95 – no proof of age or stat dec denying intent to maim required.

Shut down the death traps lurking in our suburbs, Anna!
