My mom sent me this the other day and I thought it was very interesting. i thought I would share with the group.

I thought you might appreciate reading this . .
opinion.......

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control.
From 1929 to 1953,
about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend

It has now been 12 months since gun owners in
Australia were forced by new
law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be
destroyed by their own
government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more
than $500 million
dollars. The first year results are now in:

List of 7 items:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent
Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent
Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent
(yes, 44 percent)!

In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with
firearms are now up 300
percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens
turned them in, the
criminals did not, and criminals still possess their
guns!

While figures over the previous 25 years showed a
steady decrease in armed
robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically
upward in the past 12
months, since criminals now are guaranteed that their
prey is unarmed.

There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins
and assaults of the
ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to
explain how public safety
has decreased, after such monumental effort and
expense was expended in
successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The
Australian experience
and the other historical facts above prove it.

You won't see this data on the US evening news, or
hear politicians
disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and
property and, yes,
gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding
citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control,
please remind them of
this history lesson.

With guns, we are 'citizens'.
Without them, we are 'subjects'.

During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade
America because they knew
most Americans were ARMED!

If you value your freedom, Please spread this
anti-gun control message to
all of your friends.

Dang this is what we have all been saying. Plus if you take the guns away from people more people will break the law and either buy stolen firearms or firearms they get from other underhanded ways after their family is hit by a thug carrying a gun. We have to protect ourselves. It's that simple. If we don't no one else will protect us. Especially with the mind set of some police chiefs.

Not that I disagree with the sentiment, but I always want to see the research and works cited when I come across one of these lists.

i wish it would have had a works cited as well. i dotn think anyone will dissagree with the soviet union and the german takes on gun control. I have heard that that a japanese general said that he did not want to invade america, because there would be a gun behind every blade of rass. The simple fact is politicians prefer unarmed pesants. ti is much easier to impose your will upon people that cant fight back.

That, and I have read that the post-confiscation Australia crime stats may or may not be spun or construed. I don't like going into a debate (even a water-cooler debate) with bad info.

Can't speak for the Aussies but the UK seems ready to blow with the huge increase in gun crimes now that "no one" has a gun. I read some what similar stuff about the Aussies but it's more second hand. While the in UK both the citizens and some law makers are demanding an explanation as to the increase.

I have read that the UK even banned and confiscated (hell of a word, ain't it: 'confiscate') swords. You know the type, the crappy katanas that used to be sawmill blades. The street twits started lopping each other (and bystanders) to bits with flee-market Excaliburs and so they outlawed those, too.

Bad people are going to find ways to be bad, no matter what.

+1 to that.

Not that I don't agree with the idea also, but propaganda is propaganda no matter whose side it is on.

Just for kicks here's a link to a snopes article on the Aussie gun ban and more factual statistics.

http://www.snopes.com/crime/statistics/ausguns.asp

It actually shows a decline in armed robberies involving firearms.

Although I do appreciate hearing about the evils of gun control, I also appreciate that there are two sides to all stories. Propaganda, regardless of whose side it's on, makes that side look like it's grasping straws. Grasping in order to get a real grip. There are more than enough true stories of the evils of gun control.

Here's a good video from one of my favorite dudes of all time, Uncle Ted for president!


"The second amendment of our Bill of Rights is my concealed carry permit"
