Australian Gun Law Update

Here’s a thought to warm some of your hearts….
From: Ed Chenel, A police officer in Australia

Kalahari Jag & Kamp - Australian Gun LawHi all,

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 Australian taxpayers more than $500 million dollars.

The first years results are now in:
Australia-wide, homicides are up by 6.2 percent, in the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up by 300 percent.
Australia-wide, assaults are up by 9.6 percent;
Australia-wide, armed robberies are up with 44 percent (yes, 44 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 upwards 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 residents are 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 evening news or hear your governor or members of the state 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 all gun owners, before it’s too late!

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

DON’T BE A MEMBER OF THE SILENT MAJORITY.
BE ONE OF THE VOCAL MINORITY WHO WON’T STAND FOR NONSENSE!
