I don't know if this has been posted here before, but a friend from Texas forwarded this to me, and I found it interesting. Being a history buff, I know that where a government or presiding power can impose it's will on the people while minizing dissent, they will...........



A LITTLE GUN HISTORY

I Thought all of you might appreciate this . .

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:

List of 7 items:
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!

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 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 them of this history lesson.

With guns, we are 'citizens'.

Without them, we are 'subjects'.


During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America
because they knew most Americans were ARMED!


If you value your freedom, Please spread this anti-gun
control message to all of your friends.
People ask me why I carry a 45 cal. My answer
"Because they don't make a 46 cal.”

I'm afraid that if the Democrats take control, we may find ourselves added to that list down the road.

If you believe in the 2nd amendment, always vote for a pro-gun candidate. Not every Republican is pro-gun, even though they may pay lip service. Pay attention to their records and vote!!!

thats a good video clip, actually not all democrats are anti's either. so thats something to think about as well..

i had also heard before of the Japanese General who was interviewed after the war, when asked why they simply did'nt invade he replied that they knew the public was not only armed but also had marksmen competitions.. and stated something to the fact.. "we was not foolish enough to walk into the vipers nest." or something like that.
