What does a politician do when a study they commissioned results in information contrary to their political agenda? They ignore the findings, bury the study and continue on with their agenda and lying rhetoric. They also ignore all other reports that contradict their rhetoric and go against their agenda.
This is the case with Barack Obama and his agenda to disarm the American people and destroy the Second Amendment of the US Constitution. First, he willfully ignored the facts of happened in Australia.
In 1996 newly elected Prime Minister John Howard of Australia pushed for stricter gun control. That year the Australian Parliament passed the National Firearms Agreement which banned the private ownership of all semiautomatic rifles and semiautomatic and pump action shotguns. The new law also established more restrictions in the licensing of other firearms.
According to the National Firearms Agreement private citizens were forced to turn over the banned weapons in a government buyback system. Beginning on October 1, 1966 through September 30, 1997, the Australian government spent $500 million in purchasing and destroying more than 631,000 banned guns. Howard and other politicians promised the citizens of Australia that they would be safer now that these horrible weapons had been taken off the streets.
