Gun History

Recommended Posts

My bro-in-law sent this to me today.  Worth forwarding to all freedom loving and concerned Americans.

A LITTLE GUN HISTORY

 

 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, 2 0 million political d issidents, 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:

 

 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 de crease 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 datum 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 less on.

 

 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.

 

 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. W hen 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!!!

 

 But wait, there's more!

 

 I was once asked by a lady visiting if I had a gun in the house. 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.

 

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

Nothing more true than that.  I love numbers 5 and 7.

So true.

A recent event where a legally owned and carried firearm saved the life of the CHL holder (and property).

EDINBURG -- The clerk warned Alejandro Salinas about the suspicious men who had been hanging out in front of the convenience store for the past hour.

He told Salinas to be careful as he went back out to his Chevrolet Z-71 pickup truck, that he had just filled at the Aziz Convenience Store about 11 a.m. Saturday.

Salinas walked out to his truck and hopped in.

But before he could close the door, 18-year-old Hector Severo Ramos was holding a .25-caliber pistol at Salinas' neck, said Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Treviño.

"He says Get out of the truck. I'm going to take it and I'm going to kill you," Treviño said of Ramos.

Salinas told the gunman to calm down; they could work things out.

Then he pushed Ramos' pistol away, pulled out his own pistol and fired two 9 mm bullets into Ramos' chest.

Ramos fired once into the air and his arms fell onto Salinas.

The two men tumbled to the pavement as blood spilled from Ramos' chest.

Three men who were with Ramos took off from the convenience store at Texas Highway 107 and Alamo Road in a brown Chevrolet Impala, deputies said.

Sheriff's deputies responded to the scene and emergency crews rushed Ramos to McAllen Medical Center, where he died upon arrival.

Salinas had a license to carry a concealed firearm and a clean criminal record, Treviño said.

Ramos, a U.S. citizen who lived in South Alamo, had been arrested for giving a false report to a police officer, aggravated robbery, theft and engaging in organized criminal activity, Treviño said.

Ramos may have been involved with a local gang or attempting to start a new one, Treviño said.

Deputies continue to look for the three men who were with Ramos before he was shot. They could face murder and aggravated robbery charges, Treviño said.

"If they fled knowing (Ramos) was dying at the scene and they were all responsible for the commission of this felony, then they could be held liable for that," Treviño said.

Meanwhile, the sheriff said he would likely not pursue criminal charges against Salinas, who told deputies he killed Ramos in self-defense.

"This is not a murder," Treviño said. "This is a justifiable homicide."

The Citizens of this Country would never allow a Gun Ban. That would lead to a massive revolt.
