Any household not possessing a firearm for self defense should be charged a fee of $500 to $1,000 a year for the cost of additional police to protect them.

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 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 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!

Will you be one of the sheep to turn yours in? WHY? You will need it.

Many Canadians are smart enough to heed the famous words of Mr. Elmer Fudd "Be vewy vewy quiet" :wink:

Too young to remember the great Fudd?

Ahhhh... listen :D

here's a post I made on my local town forum after the liberals came out screaming for gun control after the AZ shooting.

This is an interesting read...

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/co ... 01794.html

Quote:
LONDON -- At 9:35 a.m. on a March day in 1996, a disgruntled former scout leader walked into a primary school gym in Dunblane, Scotland, with four guns and killed 16 children and their teacher in Britain's worst mass shooting. The crime still causes Britons to recoil when they recall the victims, many of them only 5 years old.

That rampage, with guns purchased legally -- as were those used in last week's killings at Virginia Tech -- led to a near-total ban on handguns, and Britain's current laws are considered among the most restrictive in the world.


How's that new law working? let's see....
Quote:
Still, guns continue to proliferate and the law has not kept firearms out of the hands of some criminals.




Quote:
According to government statistics, the number of people killed by guns has essentially stayed the same, with dips and spikes, as before the 1997 gun control laws went into effect: There were 55 shooting deaths in 1995 and 50 last year in England and Wales. By comparison, there were 137 fatal shootings in the District of Columbia last year.


137 fatal shootings in the District of Columbia last year.
Which for those who don't know up until last year, in DC it was nearly impossible to own a handgun.

Those tough laws work well, don't they?

And the article continues with some more great news...
Quote:
The number of crimes in which a handgun was used in England and Wales has risen from 299 in 1995 to 1,024 last year. Offenses committed with all types of firearms, including air guns, have also increased.


What?? How could that be?
Well, a quick read through "More guns, less crime", by John Lott Jr. will explain that strange phenomenon that occurs when the public has become disarmed and ready prey for armed criminal. (Those are the ones who don't give a rat's behind about stinking gun laws.)

And the article ends with this gem, which is totally ludicrous based on the data in the article itself.

Quote:
"All gun crime did not cease" when England banned handguns, he said. But he added, "There is no doubt at all that the more guns there are, the more people get killed by them."

what set me off was a local liberal columnist who wrote a piece about the AZ shooting that was full of ignorant and factually incorrect BS. I called him out on that. He still wouldn't admit he was either an ignoramous or an outright liar trying to generate mass hysteria.
