"Ban Guns and Only Criminals Will....." Part 1,345

The lefty poo-poo anti-gun group are still dancing as fast as they can to sell the world on control of guns as control of crime.

Their biggest problem seems to be that NO WHERE HAS GUN CONTROL REDUCED CRIME! In fact, let us take a look at Australia's shiny-new gun control laws....

From our friend, Neal Boortz...This report:


Yesterday on the program I got to talking about a John Stossel column about gun laws ... and how they don't work. Then I get the emails, "Boortz – you're wrong! How can you believe that more guns equals more protection ...". In fact, researchers can find no instance in history where banning handguns has led to less violence involving handguns. It just isn't the case.

Now some of you may not have seen this information in a while, if not at all. But here's what happened in Australia just one year after gun owners were forced to surrender their means of protection. By the way, "disarming" Australia cost the taxpayers $500 million.

A dramatic increase in criminal activity has been experienced.


* Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2%
* Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6%
* Australia-wide, armed-robberies are up 44% (yes, FORTY-FOUR PERCENT)
* In the state of Victoria, homicides-with-firearms are up 300%
* Figures over the previous 25 years show a steady decrease in homicides-with-firearms (changed dramatically in the past 12 months)
* Figures over the previous 25 years show a steady decrease in armed-robbery-with-firearms (changed dramatically in the past 12 months)
* There has been a dramatic increase in breakins-and-assaults-of- the-elderly
* At the time of the ban, the Prime Minister said "self-defense is not a reason for owning a firearm"

Are you starting to get the picture, folks? Now here is some good news you don't see every day. A bill is being proposed in Oklahoma that would allow college students to carry concealed weapons on campus. It's headed to the House floor as we speak. It would allow students to carry firearms if they are at least 21-years-old and are licensed to carry a concealed weapon. The bill would only apply to government colleges and universities. Rep. Jason Murphey, who proposed the bill, says that the greater value of this law would be that potential shooters would be hesitant to come onto college campuses."

Yeppers.....just give criminals the excuse to attack, and they will. If they know I have a shotgun in my home, they are not going to try me any more than they are a local police station!

The left needs to get-a-grip on reality. Yes, I know for the left reality is a strange concept.
