A Little Gun History Lesson:

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.

It has now been over 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 cost ing 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 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!

It will never happen here? I bet the Aussies said that too!

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 guarante ed 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 pub lic 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 US 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 him
of this history lesson.

With Guns............. We Are 'Citizens'.

Without Them........ We Are 'Subjects'.

During W.W.II the Japanese decided not to invade America becau se they knew
most Americans were ARMED!

Note: Admiral Yamamoto who crafted the attack on Pearl Harbor had attended
Harvard U 1919-1921; and was Naval Attach?© to the U. S. 1925-28. Most of
our Navy was destroyed at Pearl Harbor and our Army had been deprived of
funding and was ill- prepared to defend the country.

It was reported that when asked why Japan did not follow up the Pearl Harbor
attack with an invasion of the U. S Mainland, his reply was that he had
lived in the U. S. and knew that almost all households had guns.
