I cant verify the authenticy of the Ed Chenel but the statistics are probably a matter of the public record:
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
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! Will you be one
of the sheeple to turn yours in? WHY? You will need it.
