Gun Control Law

Around federal election time, gun control law raises its ugly head as a hot issue in the (presidential) election campaign in the United States. The debate pro and con gun control rages on with democrats Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama promising wonderful security, law and order with increased hand gun control restrictions. Is this really a simple matter?

However, recent statistics from the Australian experience paint a very different picture: that new legislation there has resulted in increased levels of crime involving guns, because only the law-abiding citizens have given up their guns! Armed robberies there went up something like 44%. Homicides and assaults are both significantly up!

Read the full article with gun control statistics from Australia here to realize that taking away a citizen's lawful means of self-defense is a folly! The criminals still bearing hand guns know that they'll have the upper hand - after the 'disarming of the law abiding majority!'

Nancy Pelosi had better do her homework on this one, and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama....or it could backfire when crime statistics come out in the future. Read the article, please. Renew the serious debate.
