hab gerade diese email bekommen die ich mit euch teilen moechte:
Here's what will happen in the US if we allow the government to confiscate our guns! The gun collection made in Oakland a few days ago paying out $200 per gun made me feel sick in the stomach. Few of the guns collected would have been attractive to criminals. In the photos shown they appeared to be mostly old small bore rifles and shotguns and very few handguns. They could have been useful in defense of a home invasion, especially the shotguns.

Same thing happened in England when they outlawed guns.
Australian Gun Law Update
From: Ed Chenel, A police officer in Australia
Hi Yanks, I thought you all would like to see the realfigures from Down Under.
It has now been over 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a newlaw to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our owngovernment, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars.
The first year results are now in:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,
Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 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 thatwhile 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 steadydecrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically
upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteedthat their prey is unarmed.There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins andassaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home.
Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how publicsafety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense wasexpended in 'successfully ridding Australian society of guns....' Youwon't see this on the American evening news or hear your governor ormembers of the State Assembly disseminating this information.
The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in thehands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-controllaws affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note Americans, before it's too late!Will you be one of the sheep to turn yours in?WHY? You will need it.
