It was never about Guns. It was always about Control!!!
In 1996, the Australian government forced the countries gun owners to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government, costing Australia taxpayers $500 million dollars.
After the first 12 months the results showed the following:
– Homicides went UP 3.2 percent
– Assaults went UP 8.6 percent
– Armed Robberies went UP 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms shot UP 300 PERCENT!!!
Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the CRIMINALS did not, and it is the criminals who still possess their guns!
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, 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’.
If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message to all your friends. God bless!
