    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 datum 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.

    As John Steinbeck once said:

    1. Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

    2. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

    3. I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy.

    4. W hen seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.

    5. A reporter did a human-interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was carrying and asked him 'Why do you carry a 45?' The Ranger responded, 'Because they don't make a 46.'

    6. An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity.

    7. The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on his wearing his sidearm. 'Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are you expecting trouble? 'No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have brought my rifle.'

    8. Beware the man who only has one gun. HE PROBABLY KNOWS HOW TO USE IT!!!

    But wait, there's more!

    I was once asked by a lady visiting if I had a gun in the house. I said I did. She said 'Well I certainly hope it
    isn't loaded!' To which I said, 'Of course it is loaded, can't work without bullets!' She then asked,
    'Are you that afraid of someone evil coming into your house?' My reply was, 'No, not at all. I am not afraid of the house catching fire either, but I have fire extinguishers around, and they are all loaded too.' To which I'll
    add, having a gun in the house that isn't loaded is like having a car in the garage without gas in the tank.

    I'm a firm believer of the 2nd Amendment! If you are too, please forward.

    When the need is greatest 1911 is faster than 911

    I fully agree with everything stated above --- unfortunately, when dealing with anti-gun people, it is emotion that rules.

    Don't confuse me with fact, my mind is made up.

    It simply does not matter what facts are presented, there is an agenda to be served and it shall be served - even at the cost of lives and liberty.

    Things are going to have to get so bad that people will be begging for relief from oppression before anything is going to change.

    This is the reason the Founders mistrusted democracies.

    Pretty much anywhere a wise ol' philosopher criticised a democracy, just insert the word emotionalist.

    Check out the Federalist Papers for some insight on what the Framers had to say about "passions". I think its in a section dealing with the reasons for separating the legislative into a Senate and a House.

    It all boils down to the emotionalists.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    You might PM Doug Huffman.

    He might be able to refer you directly to sources.

    A little closer to home, we have actually had school administrators ask Police officers assigned as School Resource Officers to NOT carry their guns on the school grounds because it might make some staff and students uncomfortable.

    Mind you these cops are in our schools as a result of more frequent (and serious) violence. But the EMOTIONALISTS are more concerned with feelings and appearances than any actual chance of being in a position to handle a situation should one occur....


    That giant sucking sound you hear is common sense swirling down the drain....

    I refer to this thread as a good companion...

    This is the kind of stuff that the media needs to be bombarded with, BUT like you say, its the "emotion" of the story that sells papers, not the facts.

    "I'm a reporter mam, don't confuse me with the facts, just tell me in your own blubbering words what you feel happened."

    Heard last night on History Channel in describing the political turmoil on the death of Pericles: The citizens didn't know what to do. They were lost. They were a democracy.

    If this is how the leftist historians of the 21st Century describe Athens of the 5th Century BC it certainly explains their attitude toward present-day USA.
