OK Now, Let’s have a little help getting this out.

Right now the crooks don’t know if you have a gun or
not. If they confiscate all the guns then the crooks
will know you don’t have a gun
Australian Gun Law Update

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 now
available data from Down Under.

It has now been one year (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 available:
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 as compared with the last one year
period when private ownership of a firearm was legal.

(NB: the law-abiding citizens did turn in their personal
firearms, the criminal element did not and thus criminals
in  Australia still possess their guns.)

While data for  the 25 years preceding the confiscation
of privately owned guns showed a steady decrease in armed
robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward
in the past 12 months as  criminals now are assured their
victims will be 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.’

This story of well intentioned government intervention in
the rights of lawful individuals to own and possess firearms
won’t be seen in the mainstream  US media or on the
American evening news. Senator Obama who advocates a
similar confiscation in the  US will not be reporting any
of this to you.

But, 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.

Americans may want to take note before it’s too late!

    Anyone interested in this should also google “kennesaw ga”. this town passed a law requiring every head of household to own a gun, and has seen enormous growth while crime rates remained low.

    Another interesting Google: “gun control genocide”, which returns results correlating gun control to every major genocide in the 20th century.
