LESS GUNS - MORE CRIME
Australian Statistics Tell The Sad Tale
Greetings law abiding citizens.
I thought you all would like to see the truth about the effect of gun laws. 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 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 the obvious, that while the law-abiding citizens turned their guns in, the criminals did not ! Surprise, surprise.)
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.
This result bears out the information available from US records, information ignored by Australian politicians and the popular media. You won't see this on the evening news or hear your governor or members of parliament being outraged by the escalation in crime in line with disarmament of law abiding citizens.
The Australian experience proves it again. Guns in the hands of honest citizens
save lives and property and, yes, gun-control give the criminal element open
The above is not the case because law abiding citizens regularly used their guns but because of the possibility that they may. Facts beyond the comprehension of many until their aged parent is assaulted.
All who campaign to disarm the law abiding citizen are traitors along with those who actual legislate it. How much proof do you need before the penny drops??
Take note Americans, before it's to late!
