    NEVER EVER EVER SURRENDER YOUR GUNS!
    Subject: Australian Gun Law Update


    Australian Gun Law Update
    .
    From: Edward Chenel,
    "Hi, I thought you all would like to see the real figures from Down Under. It has now been over 20 yrs since gun owners in Australia were forced by new laws to surrender 640,381 personal firearms and destroyed by Australian Federal government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars in 1996.

    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 - 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. "

    AUSTRALIA: MORE VIOLENT CRIME DESPITE GUN BAN

      Another mass murder with 3 kids + 2 adults dead in WA this week will get Becky Peters/Alpers and Souros Foundation etc on the war-path again I am afraid.

        You guys Down Under need a Bill of Rights.

        If that ever happened you can be certain they would try to take them away or attempt to circumvent them just like they do here.

          Yes they would too. [Russia has a really good Bill of Rights/Constitution - so I'm told - but completely ignored!
