Arson at Australian Bank, but At Least No One Was Shot

Yesterday, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation [ABC] reported that a court in Melbourne released a video from CCTV archives of an asylum seeker from Myanmar setting fire to a Springvale branch of the Commonwealth Bank.
Apparently, the guy in question, 22-year-old Nur Islam, allegedly got pissed off because he had to stand in line to make his withdrawl, so he left the bank, went to a nearby gas station, then returned to the bank with a 1/3-full gas can.
Mr. Islam then allegedly proceeds to dump a bit of the petrol on the bank’s floor by the customer entrance, and light it with a cigarette lighter.
It seems that Mr. Islam wasn’t a very good alleged arsonist, as he was reported to have been hospitalized with burns over sixty percent of his body.
Watch the video clip above again the big fireball heading towards the camera is allegedly Mr. Islam, post-ignition.
But … but … Australia has #gunsense, so no one was shot by an unsanctioned person carrying a firearm, and that’s what’s important to the oppressives and regressives.
So while no one was shot by Mr. Islam, no one else was able to use a firearm (or any other sort of weapon, it seems) to stop Mr. Islam’s alleged amateurish attempt at arson.
