Gun Facts We Need to Remember

A good friend of mine out in Colorado sent me this email today which I thought would be perfect to share here.  I haven’t checked all the numbers but everything seems to be accurate and it doesn’t show up on Snopes.

A LITTLE GUN HISTORY…….


Most importantly note the difference between Australia and  Switzerland at the bottom of this.

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 Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.—-

Germany established gun control in 1938 From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and
exterminated.—–

China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to  defend themselves, were rounded up  and exterminated—–

Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.—-

Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend  themselves, were rounded  up and exterminated.—-

Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated  people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.—-
Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 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:

1:   Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent.

2:   Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent..

3:   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’re ‘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 sure you can get all the bullshit facts that you want from the Brady bunch’s website. The anti-gun community has a long, proven history of distorting the facts about gun ownership and crime in this country. Fact of the matter is, that banning gun ownership doesn’t do a thing to combat crime. 400% increase in violent crime in England since they pretty much banned all firearms. Australia is seeing similar increases in overall crime and a tremendous increase in firearm violence since their ban and confiscation of almost all firearms there.
      Besides, great people like yourself believed in abolishing gun ownership. Hitler, Stalin, etc., etc.

    • Not that I know of but the Japanese did outlaw the wearing of swords following the downfall of the samurai, Hitler confiscated guns before his rein of terror as did Stalin and several other of history’s worst dictators/mass murderers.

    • “The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order throughout the occupied Russian territories, and a system of military strong-points must be evolved to cover the entire occupied country.” –Adolf Hitler, dinner talk on April 11, 1942
