Aspie with Attitude

Sure, I'm just another Southern Recovering Alcoholic NPR- and Sweet-Tea Addicted Comic Mom with Asperger's in the SFV, but I can tell you now that I don't necessarily fit the stereotype.

"Gimme Your Guns!" Says Government

I received the following bulletin from a MySpace friend. I've said it before, but I didn't understand the gun thing, and its importance to individual freedoms, until recently. Most people are brainwashed by the media on this one. Gun thing = Second Amendment :)

Thanks to lusciousgirl for letting me know about this.

From: Ed Chenel, A police officer in Australia. Here is the link:

Hi Yanks,

I thought you all would like to see the real figures from Down Under. It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to surrender their 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. (That's $780.79 for every gun collected and destroyed. - RRP)

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.

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 the 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." I suspect that you won't see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the state Assembly disseminating this information.

The Australian experience proves it. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens. Take note, you Americans, before it's too late!

This has been verified by many other sources. Here are a couple of them:

DO not let your gun rights be taken away.

Go Here to Take Action Before it is too Late!!

I have enjoyed reading your blog. I am a homeschooling, non-vaxing supporter of Ron Paul! I appreciate this article about gun rights especially since it is coming up in the Supreme Court.
