Today, I heard about a new bill being sponsored by Chicago Congressman Bobbie Rush. Called the
It is the result of a shooting high school student Blair Holt in Chicago. Actually, the young man heroically put his body between a shooter, and his intended victim. Holt stopped a bullet to save a life. Congressman Rush lives in a highly violent section of Chicago. He really believes that this law will save lives. What he doesn’t see is that the shooters who do the damage don’t really give a rats ass about any laws or the consequences of violating them. The law would only encumber honest gun owners with stupid rules. The intent is to reduce the number of guns in the hands of the law abiding citizenry. It sounds like the government is setting us up for a take over, and is concerned that we may even fight back to keep our liberties intact.
After reading the following historical facts, read the part
About Switzerland twice.
A LITTLE GUN HISTORY
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control.
From 1929 to 1953,
About 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves,
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
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.

Political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and

Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and
Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000

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:
Here are some of the metrics:
1. Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent.
2. Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent.
3. Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
4. 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!
5. 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
6. 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.
NOTE: I checked these facts on Snopes. Snopes does not refute any of the numbers. They do however, take argument with the interpretation of the statistics in an attempt to minimize the impact of the data. They could be right, and they could be wrong, you be the judge.
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 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.
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. The final weapon is the brain. All else is
SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!
SWITZERLA ND ‘S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.
SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY
CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!
NOTE: Every adult in Switzerland is required to have a riflr as part of their conscription to national military service.
IT’S A NO BRAINER!
DON’T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS
IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.
Just think how powerful our government is getting!
They think these other countries just didn’t do it right.
Learn from history.
