    Gun Control

    A lesson yet to be learned?

    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..

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

    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:

    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!

    It will never happen here? I bet the Aussies said that too!

    While figures over the previous 25 years showed a s teady 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 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.

    Thank you, sweetpea! Rep sent.

    What Yamamoto actually said -

    You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.

    Good post!

    Interesting post Sweetpea and very good reasons why we shouldn't have gun control here in the US.

    However, the reason why admiral Yamamoto, who was under the command of Lt. general and prime minister Hideki Tojo at the time didn't follow through and invade the mainland after attacking Pearl Harbor was because of the time and distance involved, as they knew it would have been impossible to provide the logistical support and to supply the large military force it would have taken to invade this country.
    On D day the allied forces shipped 156000 troops across the English channel and landed on Normandie less than 40 miles away and it was a tremendous undertaking providing logistical support to that number of troops.
