Did you know the following?
According to rense.com:
- In 2919, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. This doesn’t include the 30 million that “Uncle Joe” starved to death in the Ukraine.
- 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, leaving a populace unable to defend itself against the Gestapo and the SS. Hundreds of thousands died as a result.
- 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, unale 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. The total dear are said to be 2-3 million.
- Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, 1 to 2 million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
- Gun owners in Australia were forced to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government in the late 1900s. This program cost the Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. First year results were as follows:
- Australia-wide homicides went up 3.2 percent
- Australia-wide assaults went up 8.6 percent.
- Australia-wide, armed robberies went up 44 percent.
- In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are no up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns.
- Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th century because of gun control total 56 million at a bare minimum.
But the above could never happen in the United States. I think the Aussies might have said that also. While the figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, that changed drastically upward in the first year after gun confiscation, 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.
During World War II, the Japanese decided not to invade the USA because they knew most Americans were armed. Admiral Yamamoto, who crafted the attack on Pearly Harbor had attended Harvard University and was Naval Attaché to the United States from 1925 to 28. Most of our Navy was destroyed at Pearl Harbor and our Army had been deprived of finding and 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. and knew that almost all households had guns.
There’s a lot of things that I don’t understand about the left, but their stance and desire to take guns away from law abiding American citizens. Just because some nutcase kills nine people in a church in South Carolina is not reason to disallow a single mother with small children to be able to protect herself and her family should an intruder try to get into her home.
Until recently, folks were content to be able to have guns in their homes and felt they did not necessarily need a carry permit. Now that it’s been determined that the current president has no interest in protecting the American people, his main duty as president under the constitution, it is becoming more important that law abiding Americans not only own guns, but obtain permits to carry guns.
