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.

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 still possess their guns!

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

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 & 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!

One thought on “Gun control history lesson

  1. I, too, would hate to see what happened in Australia happen here. The arguments against banning guns are excellent; it’s a good thing we’ve got that 2nd Amendment, too.

    However, as a writer myself, I think word choice is important. There’s a difference between gun CONTROL and gun BANS. I personally think gun CONTROL is a good thing, like the waiting periods, not letting felons or some mentally ill have guns, bans on some assault weapons, etc. (though the latter should only exist if the companies that make them are actually not allowed to make them, rather than making them and then letting them get into a black-market economy, so that they remain in the hands of criminals). My father was in law enforcement, was a master marksman, and owned a number of guns, but he was all for gun control. It only makes sense, really.

    This fear of the slippery slope causes unnecessary conflict in this issue, just like in so many others. Controlling gun purchase and ownership is one of the best ways that we can prevent people from calling for a ban on them.
