"While 13 gun massacres (the killing of 4 or more people at one time) occurred in Australia in the 18 years before the [gun control laws], resulting in more than one hundred deaths, in the 14 following years...there were no gun massacres." The Australian gun control laws also reduced the firearm homicide and suicide death rates: the firearm suicide rate in the 7 years before the new laws was 2.6 per 100,000 residents; in the 7 years after enacting the new laws it fell to to 1.1 per 100,000 residents (decrease of 58%).  In the 7 years before the new laws the firearm homicide rate was .43 per 100,000; in the 7 years following the new laws it was .25 per 100,000 (decrease of 42%). After the next mass shooting (with a handgun) in 2002, additional laws for handguns were enacted "restricting the caliber, barrel length and capacity for sport shooting handguns."  No mass shootings of any kind have happened in Australia since 2002, and only one since 1998.

The defendants are "accused of violating U.S. criminal laws in order to interfere with U.S. elections and political processes," according to a statement from the special counsel's office.

"The largest company indicted, the Internet Research Agency, was based in St. Petersburg, Russia, and..employed as many as 80 people focused on the sole project of disrupting and influencing U.S. elections...By September 2016, the company had a monthly budget of more than $1.25 million and was organized into multiple departments, including graphics, search engine optimization, information technology and finance.

The Russians also paid real Americans to work for them as part of their interference campaign. However, "the Americans did not know they were communicating with Russians," according to the indictment.

Also according to the indictment, by the middle of 2016 the Internet Research Agency focused on "supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump and disparaging Hillary Clinton," and purchased "political advertisements on U.S. social media and other online sites. These ads were paid for using Russian bank accounts and registered in the names of fictitious U.S. residents."
