Gun Control Producing Results



It has now been one year (12 months) since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be
destroyed by the government, a program costing Australia  taxpayers
more than
$500 million dollars.

The first year results are now available:

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 up over 300 percent as compared with the last one year period when private ownership of a firearm was legal!

(NB:
the law-abiding citizens did turn in their personal firearms, the
criminal element did not and thus criminals in Australia still possess
their guns.)

While data for the
25 years preceding the confiscation of privately owned guns showed a
steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed
drastically upward in the past 12 months as criminals now are assured their victims will be unarmed.

Lastly, there has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the elderly, while
residents are in their home.

More to come.
