    I got this in an email today, figured I'd pass it along.

    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. [SIZE=+0][/SIZE]



    ------------------------------

    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.

    ----------------------------

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

    ------------------------------

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

    ------------------------------

    Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million 'e ducated' people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    -----------------------------

    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 30.2 percent

    Australia-wide, assaults are up 80.6 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 p ercent. 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 guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.

    There has also been a dramatic incre ase 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.

    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 because they knew most Americans were ARMED !

    Note: Admiral Yamamoto who crafted the attack on Pearl Harbor had attended Harvard U 1919-1921 & was Naval Attaché to the U. S. 1925-28. Most of our Navy was destroyed at Pearl Harbor & our Army had been deprived of funding & 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. & knew that almost all households had guns.

    If you value your freedom, Please spread this anti-gun control message to all your friends!

    Thanks GM for posting that. I always loved that interview they did with Yamamoto. If I remember correctly, when asked why he never thought about invading the US, he said " Because I knew there was a gun behind every blade of grass"

    I wonder if these beaurocrats ever scratched their heads and wondered why NO country has ever thought about invading the US........

    The first gun control laws ever were established in 1517 or something like that. They were established to ban the wheel lock pistols. I have the article at the house, I'll try and find it latter. The story appeared in "The Ayoob files" section of American Hand gunner.

    Yes, seems as if the Schumers, Bidens, Kennedys, Clintons, and all of that gun control ilk has been attempting to disarm us forever. Our founding Fathers knew that sooner or later we might have to resort to violent means to maintain our freedom that they fought so hard for. Our gun hating politicians know that gun control will do absolutely nothing to stop the crime on the streets or disarm the gangbangers killing each other and innocents with stray bullets.

    What they do know but won't say is that in an extreme case of despotism, when the Government is in danger of being overthrown by radicals and taken over, that if they are part of that radical movement, an armed populance can and may show them the error of their ways as in the case of many South and Central American Dictators as well as Mussolini and others.

    Let us pray that the common sense among all Americans, politicians and citizens will use the ballot box to remove the unfit rather than the gun.....But, keep your powder dry, your rifle barrel oiled and clean, and your eyes and ears wide open toward all
    suspicious activity concerning our Republic !
