Gun Control in action

From Bore Patch

Australia has taken all the guns just like the UK did, so they are safer there right Mrs. Brady?

The first year results are now in:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,
Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent;
Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent.

Yep, that is what I want for my country. . .

Looks like I was too quick on the "post" trigger - Snopes says this is from 2000.

Doh!

Ted - the date is not as important as what the data shows. Gun control does not work and look what happens within months of you being disarmed. . .
