From Ed Chenel, A police officer in Australia: 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 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars.
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 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 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, while the resident is at home.
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….’
Politicians do not care. Criminals are like politicians, the do not care. Taxpayers and ordinary people do what the Criminals and politicians tell them to do. Always being an easy prey with no chance to defend themselves.
I think it was Colin Greenwood who did a similar study in England, and came up with the same results.
Ya think? No surprise, but good to have the supporting data.
Whatever the Left touches it upends into a massive insane mess.
Gee. What a surprise. Met a guy at the range Sunday who was from Victoria state but now living in the US. Nice guy and he really seemed to be enjoying himself out shooting with his two daughters. If he was still back in the old country he would likely need another hobby.
Politicians make a living by scolding the little people, usually trash the place, and then walk away with the notion that taxes must be raised because the place was trashed.
The results are 100% predictable. Progs don't grasp that because they're only interested in accruing power. Essentially the progs don't care.
And they are so proud of their work. Look at the homeless hobo jungles. When they speak of what they've done, it's a lot like their kid graduated with a PhD in biochemistry.
It's like Biden promising Beto that he could be the Gun Czar today while campaigning in Texas.
Yeah, putting out fires caused by "progressive arsonists", out to show that global warming is 'settled science'.
Hmmmmm. Who could have seen THAT coming?
Less than 700,000 firearms surrendered? M guess is massive non-compliance.
It is my belief gun laws are not intended for public safety, reduced crime, etc, at all.
Gun laws are enacted to rub the noses of deplorables in the doo-doo, for no other reasons than the fact the progs have the power to do so, they enjoy doing it,and all the fall out is positive for them-such as gun owners seeking a better state to reside in.
See, it is an extension of the "Curley" effect. Curley got elected Mayor of Boston, and immediately saw he could secure his place by passing laws that penalized his political opposition, mostly small business types. He did, they moved, it worked.
Same thing about gun laws- One has to figure there is a very heavy correlation between political conservatives and gun owners- hence a law penalizing gun ownership has the same effect as a law penalizing conservative ideas. ON the opposite side of the coin is dope smoking- look at the states that legalized it, ask who was affected,pro and con, and what the dominant political party is.
If 75% of conservatives drove red Corvettes, California, Washington, Colorado and New York would be looking to ban them- guaranteed.
When honest citizens are disarmed, it emboldens criminals to victimize them. And the elites remain behind walls, surrounded by armed guards.
I can't say.
By making everything a felony to possess and putting otherwise law abiding people in prison, you won't see them coming out in self defense easily. People will have to be pressed to decide to save their lives just to go to prison.
There is a great case to be made for your point. I personally think that it goes deeper than that. But simply being able to brand all conservatives as 'felons' is a compelling argument for the Curley effect.
The "deeper" is that they would like to kill us all, in the communist tradition. That is merely an extension of rubbing our nose in the doo-doo.
IIRC it was CS Lewis expounding on the nature of power,who maintained that tyrants have to hurt and force and kill- because there is no "real" power, if people comply willingly- there is no thrill in that, the thrill is FORCING someone to do something they don't want to do- this is exactly what the psychologists say about rape- it is not a sexual gratification per se, but a power expression.
These people are seriously sick .
Aussies ban guns, society goes to hell.
This is my surprised face.
On top of those depressing yet entirely predictable figures, there are doubtless more detailed statistics that cannot be mentioned because to do so would be a Hate Crime against The Real Victims.
To understand this tragic situation you must first educate yourself to realize that the man using the gun or the fists seemingly aggressively is usually The Real Victim forced into that situation by institutional racism/sexism/cishet dominance, etc. You must understand that The Real Aggression was by society and that his actions are merely entirely justified and wholly moral self-defense.
Two final thoughts. 1. People who seriously begin with "You must first understand …" are usually gigantic hypocrites and terrible people. 2. This is how you get memes such as "13 do 50".
I could see a stand-off neither side reports.
I'm always surprised that Australia, of all places, went soy beta lib.
