TruePatriot--Well if you believe them then I feel sorry for you. They claim that gun crime has gone down. Well it may have, however, all other crimes have skyrocketed. Are they willing to trade the few crimes committed with firearms to let all the others go up? I think so. It's a shame that the Australian government has duped their citizens with 'feel' good tactics. If you want to see what the stats say see for yourself: NSW Recorded Crime Statistics 1995-1998 Or go to the official Australian government site!


The gun control freaks and the conformist media are trying to sell that gun control works. Well we at TruePatriot and others like us beg to differ. The numbers speak for themselves gun control does nothing more than spawn more crime. Right now there are more than 6 million crimes committed in England every year. 6 MILLION! And in Australia, who just recently banned nearly all firearms, has seen the crime rate soar. It's true that the 'firearm' murder rate has dropped in that country, but rape, assault and robbery crimes have skyrocketed. Now I don't know about you but it seems that overall crime has gotten worse after there new stance on firearm control. Below are some crime stats from various countries. We at TruePatriot ask that you view these with an open mind.

Here is an example of how 'gun control' (bans) have increased crime in England:

In England and Wales in 1991 there were 12,129 offenses involving the use of firearms; in 1981, 8,067 such offenses were recorded. In 1991, 916 (8%) were for murder, attempted murder and other acts endangering life. Included in the total were 55 homicides resulting from the use of firearms

The government knows gun control won't work but the Democrats are making everyone 'feel' good. Well you won't be feeling so hot when some crazed criminal is breaking into your home and you'll have to 'rely' upon 911 and police to save you! HOLD ON WE'LL BE THERE IN A COUPLE OF MINUTES!

TruePatriot OPINION: Just look at some of these numbers. For instance Assault has seen an increase of 18,514 since 95! And Robbery (w/weapon not a firearm) has seen an increase of 2,921 since 95! Also Theft (from a dwelling) has seen an increase of 5,390 since 95 too! Let me tell you these numbers are scary. Imagine it happening here, this is from just one region! And the feel good Democrats and their media buddies are trying to sell you gun control? Well that's a load of B.S.! I don't want to see an increase like this is the U.S. But it will happen if we let the current government ruin our rights. And one other point is most of the thefts and robberies that occur in homes are when PEOPLE are still their! The criminals have little to worry about from a frying pan or a golf club when they are holding a firearm or other weapon.

Everyone thinks that gun control will curb crime, it won't! The criminals love gun control, because when a law abiding citizen can not own a firearm he/she might as well open the front door and go to sleep! Who's going to stop them, the police? The police have no legal obligation to protect any one person. And we all know that they are never around when you need one!
