I just received this, it is food for thought. Because Australia was so pointedly mentioned, I thought it might be of interest. The historical information is verifiable but I don’t know about the Australian. Like it says, certain information is not covered in the News here in the States.

food for thought:

Shoot Straight And Often.. When Necessary

After reading the following historical facts, read the part
About Switzerland twice.

A LITTLE GUN HISTORY
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.


In 1911, Turkey established gun control. >From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million

-—————————————-

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:

List of 7 items:

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!

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 them
of this history lesson.

With guns, we are ‘citizens.’

Without them, we are ‘subjects’.

During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew
most Americans were ARMED!

If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message
to all of your friends.

The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in
defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more
important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is
supplemental.

SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!

SWITZERLAND ’S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.

SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY

CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!

IT’S A NO BRAINER!

DON’T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS

IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.

I’m a firm believer of the 2nd Amendment!

If you are too,

please forward.

Just think how powerful our government is getting!

They think these other countries just didn’t do it right.

Now I think about it…. Castro took all the guns away from the citizens almost immediately after he came to power.

Learn from history.

    Like they say, guns don’t kill people, people kill people.

  • Marsha, it opens ones eyes when all the historical atrocities are listed in one place. This was food for thought. I hate guns, but this was a big re-think moment.

    I hate guns, too, but I feel we have the right to defend ourselves in any way we can if need be. Seems so stupid to just stand there defenseless allowing some thug to take us down. And why is it that the decent man (or woman) gets rights taken away only to be given to the criminals? Not just concerning this issue, but in many. Such a twisted government & judicial system here in America.

  • I said this piece was food for thought.

    The facts speak for them selves,while traveling around the world I have found that one thing and though to hold true, most invading countries shy from countries that their people have guns!

    Vickie that is only common sense.?!

  • Within the last two years things have gone to far. I don’t agree with the conceal and carry laws that have been passed. Missouri is one of the states that passed it.

    I grew up with guns. My dad taught me to shoot when I was 9. I had to surrender my rifles to the Government, and It annoys me a lot to think that the criminals are still armed and running around suburbia scaring the crap out of residents at will. I don’t think a week goes by without hearing about someone’s house being sprayed with bullets here in little old Adelaide! oh .. I’m a girl btw.
