    Food for thought. Australian Gun Law Update.

    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 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.....
    lone, 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!

    Sadly, you cannot convince the gun grabbers of that but then I think the end game is really total government control of the people more than elimination of firearms.

    Myself, my next rifle will be a 30 caliber PCP rifle, No bang, just whoosh.

    Those statistics don’t surprise me or anyone else on this forum. The gun grabbers are morons. We need to keep up the fight.

    This one has been around for awhile. Multiple "fact check" sites claim it's false. They generally disclose that people are still killing each other, but not using guns. Duh...

    Kinda like the UK. Took away the guns, now they are having to ban knives due to the spike in knife killings.

    How long before we get to sharp rocks?
