How many times have you heard someone, generally a Democrat, member of the mainstream media or one of the many misguided and brainwashed youth, say that gun bans in other countries have lowered crime and homicide rates?

They point to countries like England, Australia and Japan as examples but they are not telling you the truth about what has happened in those countries once guns were banned. A number of crimes increased including homicides as revealed in a recent study published by the Crime Prevention Research Center.

(Great American Politics) – Liberals have once again been mounting their efforts to call for gun bans in the United States. Some say they only want to ban certain types of guns such as assault and assault-style guns while others have admitted to wanting to ban all guns. They frequently point to places like England and Australia who banned most firearms and claim it made them safer.

Is this a truthful claim or is it nothing more than their socialist rhetoric which is regularly regurgitated to support their agenda?

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, 1996 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.

However, that was not the case! …

This study proves that banning guns not only does not stop crime or homicides but it makes more law-abiding people increasingly vulnerable to becoming victims of more criminals who know their victims are defenseless to stop them. It has been that way in England, Australia and Jamaica who banned guns and as for Japan, they had very low homicide rates prior to the gun ban.
