    Hi Yanks, I thought you all would like to see the real figures from
    DownUnder.

    It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced
    by a new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed
    by our 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 percent!)
    In the state of
    Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300percent.
    (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 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.
    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
    data on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of
    the state Assembly disseminating this information.

    The Australian experience proves it. Guns in the hands of honest
    Citizens save lives and property and, yes gun-control laws affect
    only the law-abiding citizens.

    Take note Americans, before it's to late!

    Naaee, that can't happen here, that would be
    impossible. Just because it happened down under
    it can't happen here. We have born again Bush, a good
    Christian man Ashcroft, the NRA with Moses in charge
    all looking out for our best interest especially when it
    comes to our 2nd Amendment right to bear Arms and
    Guns. What would make anybody think that it could
    happen here ? I don't buy into that one. Good
    conspiracy theory. I think somebody has their
    marbles mixed up.

    THOSE WHO ARE UNAWARE ARE UNAWARE
    OF BEING UNAWARE !
