    17 Years After Gun Bans in Australia Police Say Gun Crime is Out of Control

    by Jonathan S

    In 1996 Australia unloaded some of the most severe gun bans and gun confiscation programs on record. And for the guns that were not confiscated gun owners were forced to enter into license agreements and have their guns registered so the government knew what guns everyone had.

    Well, they really only knew what guns the law abiding had, since none of the criminals actually followed the program. Fancy that.

    Breitbart just reported some interesting developments in Australia that prove all the anti-gun lawmakers wrong. Gun control does NOT take guns out of the hands of criminals, it only disarms the law abiding, while making everyone less safe.



    Because of the out of control crime, Australia law enforcement officials have been forced to carry out recent operations

    The New South Wales police commissioner Andrew Scipione had this to say about the spike in gun crime,


    “There is no single source of gun violence… guns have fallen into the hands of organized crime, outlaw motorcycle gangs, mid-level crime groups and petty thieves and the lines are often blurred.”

    So it looks like the only ones left with all the guns are the criminals. And the gun policies that Australia has enforced are the exact ones that gun control pushers like Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Senator Dianne Feinstein want to see here in the U.S.

    Of course they will ignore the real facts behind the issue and overlook the fact that when guns are banned only the police and the criminals will have guns, leaving citizens to fend for themselves when lawlessness like we have seen in Australia starts to rise up.

    In the last 12 months alone, over 3,300 people were charged with gun crimes, and over 9,000 guns have been confiscated.

    The lesson? Gun control only affects the law abiding gun owners. Criminals are empowered by it.

    According to our homegrown progressives we should follow Australia's example. In that way our violent criminals could work at their chosen trade with no fear from armed citizens. It works so well for those downunder.

  5. Well, since they know that they need to rearm the citizens then.

    Give back the 9000 confiscated guns to law-abiding citizens.

    Well surely not the progressives. They only care about the feeling not the actual outcome.

    It's crap like this that make me a firm believer that I am just two steps shy of going over to the Dark Side!

    They want to make me a felon by outlawing firearms?
