Australian Gun Law Update

The gun control lobby here in the United States are always claiming that their "sane" gun control laws don't work because of the fact that they are instituted in a State by State manner and not on the Federal level...Well, Australia DID institute a NATIONWIDE ban...and being a self contained island continent, they don't have the problem of having a porous border where weapons can be easily smuggled through.

Let's check in with law enforcement and see how that experiment is going...

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.

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 the State Assembly disseminating this information.

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.

Take note Americans, before it's too late!

Will you be one of the sheep to turn yours in? WHY? You will need it.

We on the side of allowing private ownership of guns for self protection now have the real world evidence to prove our contention that gun control only serves to make victims of the general populace and that gun laws only affect the law-abiding. I don't know WHY this FACT is so hard for the GFW's to comprehend, other than common sense is so hard to find within the GFW mentality.
