Australia Protests Gun Ban
Nov 17, 2010
Two thousand angry Australians gather to demand gun rights and justice. Ginny Simone reports that the people of Australia gathered at the feet of Parliament with signs and outraged chanting in protest of the country’s gun bans. Interviewees from the crowd discuss the gun buyback that required citizens to surrender their weapons with the threat of jail, an event that resulted in the confiscation of over 6,000 guns. With millions of dollars spent and no reduction in crime from the gun bans, Australians demand the right to defend themselves and to feel safe in their homes.
69% increase in armed robberies
28% increase in assault with guns
19% increase in gun murders
21% increase in home invasion robberies (a newly created phenomenon)
Home invasion robberies were actually higher except that …. wait for it!
wait for it!
The government couldn’t define home invasion.
FYI. They started the ban with semi-automatic weapons, then shot guns, then went for the hand guns. IT is Always done incrementally.
