    Follow up on my previous post. I thought Aussies were conservative mostly. Well someone forwarded this to me so I will share it with all. Most of us know this to be true anyway but what the hay.


    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 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!)

    While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in
    armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in
    the past12 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!

      Well written Chucky. From what I have read they have had an increase in violent crime in the UK as well. It just goes to show how much people on the gun issue need to research before their decision. As stated in the article, only law abiding citizens will turn them in. The crooks and scum won't.

      I'm not sure what I would do if they outlawed guns here in the U.S.. Sincle all of mine are registered. I would have a hard time believing that our society would not allow me the right to defend myself or someone else if confronted with a life-death situation.

      There are other ways to control firearms then just flat outlawing them. I liked the idea of biometrics incorporated into the firearm. Only the person that purchased it can use it. If you purchase one from a private person you go into a gun store and they can reprogram it to you. That would transfer ownership over as well. (I know I'll hear alot of slack here for that )

      Here is a link to a study done about gun control and the results.
