Austrailia has no Second Amendment. Here is the latest on guns over there!



Australian Gun Law Update;
Here's a thought to warm some of your hearts....
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.

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 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....'
 
You won't see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information. 
 
The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note Americans, before it's too late!

  1. Anyone know where I can obtain the true cost of the criminals in our country before capture? I want to see how much havoc in dollars a typical criminal creates to society before we toss them into jail.

  2. You do realise that the letter you have published here is a hoax and extremely misleading. The Australians passed their gun ban in 1991. The letter I think was taken from this web site as an example of how people can lie on the internet.

    http://www.snopes.com/crime/statistics/ausguns.asp

    Gun deaths have fallen dramatically since the ban was introduced. It has been a very effective and simple change with huge benefits to Australian society.

    Gun deaths in Australian are at 0.14 per 100,000, America they stand at 2.8 per 100,000. That is 20 times more than Austrailia.

    It is my assertion that you really are not very good at all at checking your data!

    1. And your credentials? I get data from many sources and I, like you, have many opinions. I would suggest your data is bogus.

    This email has been doing the rounds for quite a while now. It's listed on just about every hoax / urban legend site as false. It's not 12 months since the gun laws were en-acted in Australia. They were proclamined in 1996. So make it 8 years. The statistics given are misleading or very generalised. They're also now quite out of date.

    No Ed Chenel has ever been found to have worked for any of the police forces in Australia. That's pretty easy to check as there are only 7 of them, one for each state and one federal. Or if you want to try to find Mr Chenel try the online white pages for Australia ... www.whitepages.com.au. It shouldn't be too difficult as Chenel isn't a particularly common name down here. In fact there is only one listed. Though maybe all the others got sick of people trying to find Ed?

    Which reminds me Ed is a very unusual first name in Australia. Edward is usually shortened to Ted. So how come nobody has been able to find him since he posted his report? And how come he hasn't updated the statistics?

    It has also been pointed out that the gun laws in Australia are totally different to those in America, before and after 1996. The majority of people in Australia don't own guns, and don't want to.

    I've seen a few version of it with minor changes. This is typical of urban legends. In one Ed Chenel becomes a Police Chief. There's a slight problem here in that there is no such position in the Australian police force. In another version he suddenly becomes a police fire arms expert. Again sorry no such position. They both have different titles, which someone from Australia would have known.

    Even the wording of the report makes it sound unlikely that it was written by an Australian. I've never heard the expression "you all" except with an American accent.

    So sorry but it's a hoax ...

  5. "But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
    "Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat:
    "we're are all man here. I'm mad. You're mad."
    "How do you know I'm mad," said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat,"or you wouldn't have come here."
