The History Of Gun Ownership

The first time you or I confront terrorism --- foreign or domestic --- we become the first line of defense,
and it's too late to call in anyone else. An armed law-abiding citizen is America's first line of defense.

Whether you agree or not, it's an interesting lesson in history. Something to think about...

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves,
were rounded up and exterminated.
------------------------------

In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded
up and exterminated.
------------------------------

Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews 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.
-----------------------------

Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.
------------------------------

It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be
destroyed by their own Government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The first year results
are now in:

The first year results are now in:
List of 7 items:

Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent.

Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 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 criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.

There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY. 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. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.

You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding
citizens.

Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!

The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.

With guns, we are 'citizens'.  Without them, we are 'subjects'.

During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message to all of your friends.


The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill
is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!  SWITZERLAND 'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.  
SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!
IT'S A NO BRAINER! DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW
ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.     

I'm a firm believer of the 2nd Amendment! If you are too, please forward.

Doctors vs Gunowners

Doctors

(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.

(B)   Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000.

(C)   Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171.

Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>  

Now think about this:

Guns

(A)   The number of gun owners in the U.S. is 80,000,000. (Yes, that's 80 million)

(B)   The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups, is 1,500.

(C)   The number of accidental deaths per gun owner is 0.000188.

Statistics are courtesy of the FBI

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>  

So, statistically, doctors are approximately

9,000 times more dangerous than gun owners.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>  

Remember, 'Guns don't kill people, doctors do.'

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

FACT:   NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT

ALMOST EVERYONE HAS AT LEAST ONE DOCTOR.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>  

Please alert your friends to this alarming threat.

We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>  

Lawyers

Out of concern for the public at large, I withheld the statistics for fear the
shock would cause people to panic and seek medical attention!

Like it or not - The Second amendment to the US Constitution is the one that GUARANTEES ALL the others.....



THE 2nd AMENDMENT












The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense.  (waiting for attack)

The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is
supplemental.

As John Steinbeck once said:
1.  Don't pick a fight with an old man.  If he is too old to fight, he’ll just kill you.
2.  If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.
3.  I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy.
4.  When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.
5.  A reporter did a human-interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was
carrying and asked him 'Why do you carry a 45?' The Ranger responded, 'Because they don't make a 46.'
6.  An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity.
7.  The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented on his wearing his sidearm.  'Sheriff, I see you have
your pistol. Are you expecting trouble?'
'No Ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I would have brought my rifle.'
8.  Beware the man who only has one gun.  HE PROBABLY KNOWS HOW TO USE IT!!!

Great Quote - Florida 's got it right.  Bravo for Sheriff Judd!!!












POLK COUNTY FLORIDA SHERIFF GRADY JUDD

Some "dirtbag" in Polk County Florida who got pulled over in a routine traffic stop ended up "executing" the deputy who  
stopped him. The deputy was shot eight times, including once behind his right ear at close range.  Another deputy was  
wounded and a police dog killed.  A statewide manhunt ensued.  The low-life was found hiding in a wooded area with his gun.   
SWAT team officers fired and hit the guy 68 times.   
Naturally, the media asked why they shot him 68 times. Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, told the Orlando Sentinel:  "That's all the
bullets we had!"    (Talk about an all time classic great answer!!!)   


But wait, there's more!

I was once asked by a lady visiting if I had a gun in our home.  I said I did.  She said 'Well I certainly hope it isn't loaded!'  To
which I said, of course it is loaded, can't work without bullets!' She then asked, 'Are you that afraid of someone evil coming into
your house?'  My reply was, 'No not at all.  I am not afraid of the house catching fire either, but I have fire extinguishers around,
and they are all loaded too.'  To which I'll add, having a gun in the house that isn't loaded is like having a car in the garage
without gas in the tank.  

YA'LL HAVE A NICE DAY NOW But don't Monkey with Me.....

I'm a firm believer of the 2nd Amendment!

Best comeback line (On Gun Safety)












FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
So, General Cosgrove, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?

GENERAL COSGROVE:
We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery and shooting.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?

GENERAL COSGROVE:
I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?

GENERAL COSGROVE:
I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER:
But you're equipping them to become violent killers.

GENERAL COSGROVE:
Well, Ma'am, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?

The radio went momentarily silent and the interview ended.
General Cosgrove was interviewed on the radio recently.
Love his reply to the lady who interviewed him
concerning guns and children.
Regardless of how you feel about gun laws you gotta
love this!
This is one of the best comeback lines of all time.
It is a portion of an ABC interview between a female
broadcaster and General Cosgrove who was about to
sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military
headquarters.
