    A LITTLE GUN HISTORY . . .

    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 ar e 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 abov e
    prove it.

    You won't see this data on th e US ev ening 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. I just did.
