I received this a couple of days ago, and thought it worth passing on to any and all who think gun restrictions are a workable safety measure (NOT!!!).
Here’s a thought to warm some of your hearts….
From: Ed Chenel, A police officer in Australia
Hi Yanks, I thought you all would like to see the real
figures from Down Under.
It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to
surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own
government, a program costing Australia taxpayers
more than $500 million dollars.
The first year results are now in:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,
Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 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 the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.
There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home.
The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in the
hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.
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….’ You won’t see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of your State Assembly disseminating this information.
Multiply these figures by every country in the world where firearms are not permitted in private hands.
That is because politicians as well as media types world-wide seem to be operating with their heads up their anal sphincters
Make no mistake it is not about gun control, it is about
RAW NAKED CONTROL!!!
When the Nazi’s come knocking on your door to confiscate your weapons, and they will, just as surely as they did in Hitler’s day, Just remember they will be wearing protective body armor covering MOST of their body, so be very careful how and where you frame your answer.
Does any more need to be said???
WAKE UP AMERICA!!!
