Here's an idea to warm some of your hearts.... From: Ed Chenel, A police officer in Australia.
Hello there Yanks, I thought all of you might want to see the genuine figures from Down Under. It has now been 12 months since weapon proprietors in Australia were constrained by another law to surrender 640,381 individual guns to be annihilated by our own government, a system costing Australia citizens more than $500 million dollars.
The principal year results are currently in:
Far reaching, crimes are up 6.2 percent, Far reaching, ambushes are up 9.6 percent; Far reaching, furnished burglaries are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
In the condition of Victoria.....alone, manslaughters with guns are currently up 300 percent.(Note that while the well behaved nationals turned them in, the lawbreakers did not hoodlums still have their firearms!)
While figures over the past 25 years demonstrated a relentless diminish in furnished burglary with guns, this has changed radically upward in the previous 12 months, since the crooks now are ensured that their prey is unarmed.There has likewise been a sensational increment in break-ins and strikes of the elderly, while the occupant is at home.
Australian government officials are at a misfortune to clarify how open wellbeing has diminished, after such momentous exertion and cost was used in 'effectively freeing Australian culture of guns....'
You won't see this on the American nightly news or hear your representative or individuals from the State Assembly spreading this data.
The Australian experience justifies itself with real evidence. Firearms in the hands of legit natives spare lives and property and, yes, weapon control laws influence just the well behaved residents.
Observe Americans, before it's past the point of no return!
