    But violence against criminals by people trying to defend themselves has dropped - this does lower the statistics so from a Government perspective the buy back has worked. Just the people who have been attacked in their homes with knives, swords and baseball bats and have permanent injuries have a different idea about what is considered a success.

    We have gun control with the laws on the books now. The Judges & the DA's just have to follow the laws in place. the gun crime in this country much like Australia is from illegal guns. Do you think the gangs register their weapons? Our government is the largest illegal gun dealers, (Fast & Furious, Benghazi) and yet they want to take our legal guns. Stand up to them people.

    I agree the government is to be feared but some people seem to be brain dead or maybe stupid. The loss of the end amendment will be the forerunner of Dictatorial Rule.

    So it cost the Aussie guv about $770 for each gun confiscated. Give me $800 per and it'll help lighten my gunsafe berry.

    Gee big surprise there. What, they couldn't get the criminals to give up their guns? What a shame...

    I read that the Japanese did not dare invade the US because they knew most citizens were armed and that they actually feared Americans ability to defend themselves. It just seems stupid to me to try and ban guns. Like Australia, our crime rate, which is already horrific, will go up even worse than it already is, proving that PEOPLE kill people.

    I recently saw a report on CNN that said violent crimes and murders in the USA have both dropped by 49% in past 20 years ! These are FBI Stats. !

    What's even more interesting is the number of known guns in 1992 was 192 million but in 2012 that number had jumped to 310 million. Almost a 120 million increase and violent crime and murders drop 50% . hummmmmm ? ?

    Either guns make for less crimes or the FBI made up all these statistics.
    What do you believe ?

    Yes that's right, crime is down its just the Obama Regime trying to brain wash ever gun violent act as a catalyst to disarm and take your guns. We do have a government that has evil people doing bad things and getting away with there crime. I guess Jesse Jackson Jr. Got busted but as you notice the Damn Media hasn't reported on it lately, very briefly it was covered then dropped. I know for a fact had it been a Tea Party IRS Stalked and Violated person the Damn Media would still be reporting on it. I bet Eric Holder will never answer to his irresponsible Fast and Furious screw up or was it, maybe the government is in business with certain drug dealers after all money does strange things to the Greedy liberals.

    Once these liberal Politicians get the control they want the liberal agenda will change to a genocide of the old, weak, gay, etc undesirables, remember the Islamic Religion kills the gays and they don't allow freedom of speech or other forms of religion, no freedom dumby liberal. I ask you could Obama be a Muslim in a weak Christian suit?

    So I guess that means the criminals did NOT turn in their illegally gotten fire arms and continued to use them. What a surprise ! Who could have possibly foreseen that criminals would not go along with the ban ? Oh yeah, HOW ABOUT ANYBODY WITH A FUNCTIONING BRAIN !!!
