A Heart Warming Thought.  

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! 
Site Owner's Note:  Although this was earmarked for America, it is also pertinent to every countries' citizens whose government is attempting to confiscate or have already confiscated their weapons.  In some of my other posts, I show where gun confiscation has caused crime to rise and even their own government has killed over 170,000,000 of their citizens during the last century.  One point should be made about the rise in crime also. London has instituted, over the past few years, several very strict gun laws as to possession of firearms by its citizens.  Their murder rate has now surpassed New York City, which also has some of the strictest gun laws in America. The Liberal/Socialist/Progressive/Marxist government officials in Australia and London are not stupid, as that is their ideology.  It is you the citizen, the voter that is stupid.  Pardon my error; you are no longer citizens, you are now subjects.

The $500 million cost to the taxpayers to have their private property confiscated is going to be merely a drop in the bucket compared to the cost that will be associated with the loss of productivity, lost wages by the injured and medical costs over the next several years.
How many of you robbery and assault victims voted for the Gun-Grabbers. Of course, the homicide victims can no longer care about how they voted! Can they?
