A LITTLE GUN HISTORY - Why I Support The Right To Keep And Bear Arms

After reading the following historical facts, read the part
about Switzerland twice.

1911 - Turkey established gun control.  From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend
themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

1929 - the Soviet Union established gun control.  From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents,
unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

1935 - China established gun control. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to
defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated  

1938 - Germany established gun control. From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who
were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.

1964 - Guatemala established gun control.  From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to
defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

1970 - Uganda established gun control.  From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend
themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

1956 - Cambodia established gun control. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to

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 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!

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
.

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!                                                       

SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!                                                        

SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS AND ISSUES EVERY ADULT A RIFLE.  SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN
RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.                                                        

DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS
AN EASY TARGET.    
                                                    

I'm a firm believer of the 2nd Amendment, if you are too, please forward.

This article was sent to me from the net.
Our second amendment was not established for us to have guns to hunt, it was established so our
people could assist our military in time of war and also to fight against our military should our
government become over powerful.

Our forefathers knew that power corrupts.

Now like most other people I support criminals not having guns and large clips.  However, if law
abiding citizens are not to have guns with large clips, then other than the Government, ONLY the
criminals will have them.  If a crazy person with a gun that has a clip of 150 comes knocking at my
door, I certainly don't want to be stuck with a clip that only holds six or eight.

Does that make sense to any of you who don't believe in gun rights?

Do you want a neighbor who has a gun and is protecting you to only have six or eight when the
person trying to kill you has 150?
