I have not verified, but this sounds accurate:

A Little Gun History Lesson
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From
1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend
themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.


In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917,
1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were
rounded up and exterminated.


Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to
1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable
to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated


China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952,
20 million political dissidents, unable to defend
themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.


Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to
1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves,
were rounded up and exterminated.


Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979,
300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were
rounded up and exterminated.


Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to
1977, one million "educated" people, unable to
defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.


Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th
Century because of gun control: 56 million.

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:

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 stil l possess their guns!

It will never happen here? I bet the Aussies said that

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 him of this history lesson.

With Guns...........We Are "Citizens".
Without Them........We Are "Subjects".

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

Note: Admiral Yamamoto who crafted the attack on Pearl
Harbor had attended Harvard U 1919-1921 & was Naval
Attaché to the U. S. 1925-28. Most of our Navy was
destroyed at Pearl Harbor & our Army had been deprived
of funding and was ill prepared to defend the country.

It was reported that when asked why Japan did not follow up
the Pearl Harbor attack with an invasion of the U. S.
Mainland, his reply was that he had lived in the U. S. &
knew that almost all households had guns.

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

Here's something to chew on.... A list of nations that allow REAL WORLD right to bear arms for personal defence. Some of the laws might seem a bit strict to us, but in comparison to other nations that don't allow personal firearms at ALL, these are some pretty promising states. Also, it's interesting to note that many nations that allow personal arms ownership (handgun), are some of the more secure economies in the world (But that's just my take).

Here's a list of states with established gun laws that I could find with current research resources. Your mileage may vary:

If you are considered as target shooter, you can only have 2-3 small caliber gun (<.32) and one large. Storage can be checked by police. Hunters may buy an unlimited number of guns > 60 cm long. Handguns are limited to a total of two revolvers or pistols. Fully-automatic weapons are illegal. Rifles and shotguns are limited to 2+1 rounds. Hunters may only carry their gun to, from, and during hunting. Carrying in public is illegal without a hard-to-get special permit.

South Africa
Permit with fingerprint required. Full auto and semi auto rifles are very difficult to obtain. Concealed carry is allowed. no restriction on handguns. (Funny: hard to get an AR or AK, yet you can have a CCW with no issue)

Permit is required but easy to get. no limitation of caliber or number of guns. Full auto available for collectors only. Concealed carry is legal except in 2 states.

The Netherlands
You can ask for a permit after a year of membership in a club. Need certificate from the club. No more than 5 guns. Full auto is illegal.

Need permit for handguns and number of handguns is limited to 2 (5 for hunters). Need special permit for carry. No permit for rifles or shotguns.

Minimum age of 18 years old, with federal review of permit.

Local authorities issue permits to bear arms. Validity periods and procedures vary depending on whether the permit is for self-defense, sport, hunting or collecting. All requests must be accompanied by medical certificate showing the applicant is sound in mind and body. If the permit is for self-defense, the request must be based on a valid reason to bear arms.

Pistol and Rifle ownership legal, as is shooting on private land. Illegal to transport outside of locked carrier. Home must be equipped with a non-mobile, alarmed safe.

Longarms (Shotguns and Rifles) for sport with licence (easily obtained, but exensive), but cannot be transported "assembled". Russian federal law states that a firearm is considered "disassembled" when the magazine for the weapon is detached. Transport for self-defence is NOT considered a legal justified reason, but only cited if there is an incident with the firearm. Pistols are illegal.

All citizens prohibited from owning any guns. No exceptions

All firearms in Brazil are required to be registered with the state; the minimum age for ownership is 25 and it is generally illegal to carry a gun outside a residence.

Indian citizens have the right to own, possess and carry guns provided a license / permit is obtained under the Central Arms Act, usually necessitating a background check from the nearest police department, or other law enforcement agency. The Indian government also distributes arms to citizens in areas ravaged by foreign infiltration and insurgency, as state policy.

New Zealand
New Zealand gun law is covered by the Arms Act 1983 and the Arms Regulations 1992. In order to own a firearm, a person must obtain a firearms license. These are issued by the police and enable holders to own and use sporting rifles, shotguns and ammunition. In order to obtain a license, applicants must pass a test on 'safe and responsible firearms use, ownership, and storage'. They must also be a 'fit and proper person' to hold a license, based on a background check, and the license may be revoked for a variety of reasons. A special license is required by dealers, collectors, pistol club members, and owners of certain semi-automatic firearms. Less than 3% of all firearms owners have such endorsements and they must comply with much more stringent conditions than sporting firearms license holders. When not in use firearms must be locked in a secure rack and cabinet.

Dutch gun law is typical of the Western European approach. Firearm possession is not subject to any constitutional protections, but regulated simply in the Arms and Ammunition Act (Wet Wapens en Munitie). Weapons, including firearms, are divided into four categories, and for each of the categories a certain maximum punishment is set for "voorhanden hebben" (possession), and "dragen" (carrying in public). Only citizens who are members of hunting and shooting sports clubs may obtain licences for weapons. And even then they may only get a licence for category III weapons (sports weapons). Firearm possession and use by the military and the police is not subject to Arms and Ammunition Act, but regulated separately. Sale/Use is only for those age 18 or over.

Legal private ownership of firearms and ammunition is severely restricted in the Republic of China. Aside from a few individuals licensed decades ago and shooting organizations sanctioned by the government, only Taiwanese aborigines may receive firearm permits. With approval from the government, Taiwanese aborigines may build and possess up to two muzzle-loading black powder rifles per individual, or up to six rifles per household, for hunting and ceremonial purposes.
