Former Australian deputy prime minister Tim Fischer is urging Australian tourists to stay away from the U.S., following the fatal shooting of 22-year-old Christopher Lane, an Australian on a baseball scholarship at East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma.
Fischer told the country's Herald-Sun newspaper that Australians should boycott the U.S. as a way to force Congress to act on gun control.
Police say Lane was jogging through a neighborhood in Duncan, Okla., when three teenagers drove up and shot him. Those three teens have now been charged.
