Gun Control around the world. Some facts to put the rumors to rest.
*Australia's gun ban in 1997 changed history for the people of the Land Down Under. Unfortunately for the worse. Here are some facts;
*Accidental gun deaths are 300% higher
*The assault rate has increased 200%
*Robbery and armed robbery have increase 20%
* homicides with firearms are now up 171 percent
Let's look at other countries:
Fact: In America, we can demonstrate that private ownership of guns reduces crime.
Fact: Countries with the strictest gun-control laws also tended to
have the highest homicide rates.
Fact: According to the U.N., as of 2005, Scotland (Gun Ban) was the most violent country in the developed world, with people three times more likely to be assaulted than in America. Violent crime there has doubled over the last 20 years. 3% of
Scots had been victims of assault compared with 1.2% in America.

Fact: surveys completed in the past 20 years provide no evidence of any relationship between the total number of legally held firearms and the rate of armed crime.
Fact: Switzerland has relatively lenient gun control for Europe, and has the third-lowest homicide rate of the top nine major European countries, and the same per capita rate as England and Wales, where restrictions are much tighter.
Fact: Brazil has mandatory licensing, registration, and maximum personal ownership quotas. It now bans any new sales to private citizens. Their homicide rate is almost three (3) times higher than the U.S.
Fact: Many of the countries with the strictest gun control have the highest rates of violent crime. Australia and England, which have virtually banned gun ownership, have the highest rates of robbery, sexual assault, and assault with force of the top 17 industrialized countries.
Fact: The crime rate is 66% higher in four Canadian Prairie Provinces (Gun Control) than in the northern US states across the border.
Fact: Since gun banning has escalated in the UK, the rate of crime – especially violent crime – has risen.
Fact: Ironically, firearm use in crimes in the UK has doubled in the decade since handguns were banned.
Fact: Britain has the highest rate of violent crime in Europe, more so than the United States or even South Africa. They also have the second highest overall crime rate in the European Union. In 2008, Britain had a violent crime rate nearly five times higher than the US.
Fact: Handgun homicides in England and Wales reached an all-time high in 2000, years after a ban on private handgun ownership. More than 3,000 crimes involving handguns in 1999-2000, including 42 homicides, 310 cases of attempted murder, 2,561 robberies and 204 burglaries.
Fact: Gun crimes have been rising throughout Australia since guns were banned. In Sydney alone, robbery rates with guns rose 160% in 2001, more than in the previous year.
Fact: In Japan, the total murder rate is almost 1 per 100,000. In the U.S., there are about 3.2 murders per 100,000 people each year by weapons other than firearms.This means that even if firearms in the U.S. could be eliminated, the U.S. would still have three times
the murder rate of the Japanese.
Fact: The top 100 countries for homicide do not include the U.S. The top ten countries all have near or total firearm bans.
Bottom Line: Democrats tell us they want to pass "Common Sense Gun Laws", but the law that makes the most "Common Sense" is the 2nd Amendment. People are far more safe when there are far more guns.
