You don't have to own a gun to appreciate these facts....
Subject: The Other Side of Gun Control

Whether you agree or not, it's an interesting lesson in
History. Something to think about...


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 and 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:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent
Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent
Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44
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 American evening news or hear our
President, governors or other politicians disseminating this

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and,
Yes, gun-control laws 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 are 'subjects'.

If you value your freedom, Please spread this anti-gun control
Message to all of your "LIBERAL" friends.

I just tell them this:

Sigmund Freud, the father of modern psychoanalysis, stated the following: "A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity."
