Australia's Gun Ban - America's Warning from Abroad

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
-A gun buyback, that forced law-abiding citizens, to surrender their firearms in a nationwide roundup and melt-down of all semi-automatic firearms and pump-action rifles and shotguns. 640,000 ordinary conventional firearms, ... confiscated and destroyed. -It was an absolute joke and a tragedy, I actually turned in three firearms, and it look, it broke my heart. -It was forty years of collecting, I can't say it any other way than that, I felt sick. I had to hand them in, because if I didn't I was going to jail. -There's no If's or But's about that, by taking that gun away from me, they'd stolen something from me. -A "right" stolen by their government. Promising "Safety" in return for its gun bans. But now citizens know the frightening truth, the cost of lost "Liberty", can be measured in the "loss of life". -It's become very very obvious, even to Blind Freddy, the expenditure of a 1/2 billion dollars has done absolutely nothing to reduce crime. -It certainly didn't do what the government touted it would do... Which was to reduce crime. It hasn't done that it all. In fact, there has been more (crime). -This has been a lot of "bull", and hasn't really done much to help society with its problems. -Cold, hard facts the anti-gun forces can no longer escape. Armed Robberies have skyrocketed, up 69%. Assaults involving guns, rose 28% Gun murders, increased 19% And a new phenomenon, Home Invasions jumped 21% An increase politicians insist they can explain because they're still trying to legally define what a home invasion is, and what the penalty should be. -Part of the difficulty is that, there is no "clear" definition of home invasion in the law. -I never ceased to be amazed, at the ingenuity of lawyers. -If the politicians want a pay-raise, boom, that's done in twenty minutes, but to define "home invasion", What a joke. -I have no trouble at all in defining what a "home invasion" is... I think if someone sets their foot inside your door, univited, They are invading your home and your privacy. -And victims who have survived home invasions don't need a definition. They've lived through hours of terror. Arthur field was tied up, his hands and feet taped, his phone lines cut, while two robbers ransacked his house. -And they jumped on me and knelt on my chest. and grabbed me around the throat when I immediately stared calling out "help". -I don't know how many men they started smashing the windows there was a lot of glass shattering lots of noise outside. And I stood in the kitchen and I was trembling. -The Zewatsky's remember, thugs running through their home, demanding money, and threatening to kill them. Mr. Zewatsky says, if he had a firearm, the suspects never would have gotten away. -Do you stand there waiting until you get killed? or (would) you defend yourself? Tell me the truth, you would defend yourself. -Scars that never heal. Citizens left powerless. But it's criminals who've been empowered and emboldened by the new gun laws because the innocent, can't fight back. -What's happening today, is that the offender, the bad guys are happy to break into somebodys house, they're not frightened to break into somebodys house while they're at home. -Citizens denied the right to protect themselves. By a justice system that won't. -Well my opinion of the legal system here, is it's absolutely weak. Weak as water. I mean they've got no backbone. The sentencing for various crimes is just pathetic. -And police, who can't. They're undermanned, and morale has never been lower. -It's very bad at the moment, it's never been worse. Since 1993, we've had a real decrease in over 230 sworn police officers in this state. -These policeman have joined the job. The police wouldn't have joined the job to not go out and do it (their job). And they can't even attempt to respond to break-ins or assaults because there is no vehicle to get them there. I mean that's just absolutely ridiculous. -Gun laws that have backfired. And Australians that have been forced to hide behind bars and deadbolts. Some, are even installing extensive security systems. Because the firearms they still own, that haven't been banned, Have to be locked up. Unloaded. And, unavailable. -I mean, get real.. If I had someone break in here. I've got to go get the bolt. Get the rifle. Find the ammunition somewhere else. Put it all together... and then defend myself. If this other person's got a firearm is going to threaten my life. No way, it doesn't bloody add up. -A political fraud. Gun bans that haven't made a difference. And gun owners now struggling to stop a growing momentum against them. -The people pushing the removal of guns from the Australian society, are already saying that's only the first step. Publically. That's only the first step. Now we want the handguns, we want, every other firearm. -Their warning to Americans, don't think it can't happen to you. It can, and it already is. -Unless you, the firearms owner get off your butt now, and start to oppose those that want to take them off of you right here and now, I would say that within 5 to 10 years the restrictions on gun owners in America will be similar to what happens in Australia. -Don't trust your politicians, get in there, keep them off your backs, be a member of the NRA, be a member at your local gun club. -Be part of the NRA. And never, ever, ever give up your freedoms. Because that in the end is all you got. -If you think you have rights, tomorrow the government can take them away from you. -I think the Americans have to be very very careful. Because, you know, their rights will be quickly eroded, as ours have. And we don't have a chance in hell, of getting those rights back.
