"Are You Considering Backing Gun Control Laws???"

Commentary by Paul Harvey...

 

     Do you think that because you may not own a gun, the
     rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment don't
     matter?
    
     CONSIDER THIS...
     In 1929 the Soviet Union established gun control.
     - From 1929 to 1953, approximately 20 million
     dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded
     up and exterminated.
    
     In 1911, Turkey established gun control.
     - From 1915-1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to
     defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
    
     Germany established gun control in 1938.
     - From 1939 to 1945, 13 million Jews, gypsies,
     homosexuals, the mentally ill, 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.
    
     That places total victims who lost their lives because
     of gun control at approximately 56 million in the last
     century.
    
     Since we should learn from the mistakes of history,
     the next time someone talks in favor of gun control,
     find out which group of citizens they wish to have
     exterminated.
    
     It has now been 12 months since gun owners in
     Australia were forced to surrender 640,381 personal
     firearms to be destroyed, a program costing the
     government more than $500 million dollars.
     - The results Australia-wide; Homicides are up 3.2%,
     Assaults are up 8 %, and Armed robberies are up 44%.
     In that country's state of Victoria, homicides with
     firearms are up 300%.
    
     Over the previous 25 years, figures show a steady
     decrease in armed robberies and Australian politicians
     are on the spot and at a loss to explain how no
     improvement in "safety" has been observed after such
     monumental effort and expense was successfully
     expended in "ridding society of guns."
    
     It's time to state it plainly; Guns in the hands of
     honest citizens save lives and property and, yes,
     gun-control laws only affect the law-abiding citizens.
     Take action before it's too late, write or call your
     delegation.
