    It has now been 16 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 statistics 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..
    Victoria-wide: Homicides with firearms are now up300 percent.
    (Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned
    them in, the criminals did not, socriminals 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 are 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 U.S. 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 are '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 and relatives
    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. No weapon can be properly
    used or wielded without the brain.
    SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!
    SWITZERLAND 'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT TO WHOM
    THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.
    SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN-RELATED CRIME
    RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!
    IT'S A NO BRAINER, FOLKS!!
    DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS
    IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET
    OR WORSE, A CHALK OUTLINE.
    I'm a firm believer of the 2nd Amendment!
    If you are too, please forward this note.
    Just consider how powerful our government is getting!
    OUR GOVERNMENT THINKS THESE OTHER COUNTRIES
    SIMPLY DIDN’T DO IT RIGHT. WELL, LEARN A LESSON
    FROM HISTORY!!
    In God We Trust

    Statistics like this have existed for years. For some reason our government can't find them. When will they learn?
