The History of Gun Control

I found this on another forum, I think it wise to post it in as many places as possible. Hopefully this information can be used to help gun control advocates understand what they are actually doing. Post is as follows:

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.

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 educated' 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:

List of 7 items: 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.

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'.

Thanks Dave,

This information has been available for several years now and I have read it several times, but it is good to keep these things in our minds and memories.

Another area where gun control is advocated here in the USA has been as early as the 19th century by the KKK(also some earlier laws in the deep South to keep Colored folk from having weapons), which desired this type of law in order to keep the ***** population from being able to defend themselves. Remember that an unarmed man is easier to subjugate and murder than one who has a double barreled shotgun in his hands.

Another Group here in the USA which ironically one would think would be all for guns, is the NAACP. They very much desire to see the elimination of guns in society. This has not been beneficial to the people whom they propose to represent.

So other than the Diane Fienstiens' and Clintons' and Obamas' and Kennedy's out there who make no bones about their desire to disarm us all, we have whole organizations which desire to put all of us at the same risk as those in the article Dave brought us.

We must be ever diligent to work as hard as we can to defend our constitutionally recognized, God-given right to self defense. Let us all be strong and diligent in this!
