No, I don’t exactly know where it came from, but I do know that the person who sent it is pretty reliable.
Subject: Fw: gun control data
After reading the following historical facts, read the part about Switzerland, twice.

It has now been 16 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by new law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own Government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The first
year statistics are now in: Australia-wide: Homicides are up 3.2 percent. Australia-wide: Assaults are up 8.6 percent.
Australia-wide: Armed robberies are up 44 percent..
Victoria-wide: Homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent.
(Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not,
so criminals still possess their guns!)
While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady decrease in armed
robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months,
since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey are unarmed.
There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY.
Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased,
after such monumental effort, and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns. The Australian experience and the other historical facts above prove it.
You won’t see this data on the U.S. evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control
laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens..
Take note my fellow Americans, before it’s too late! The next time someone
talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
With guns, we are ‘citizens.’
Without them, we are ‘subjects’.
During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
If you value your freedom, please spread this anti-gun control message to all of your friends and relatives
The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense.
The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. No weapon can be properly used or wielded without the brain.
SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!
SWITZERLAND’S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT TO WHOMTHEY ISSUE A RIFLE.
SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN-RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!
IT’S A NO BRAINER, FOLKS!!
DON’T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET OR WORSE, A CHALK OUTLINE.
I’m a firm believer of the 2nd Amendment!
If you are too, please forward this note.
Just consider how powerful our government is getting!
OUR GOVERNMENT THINKS THESE OTHER COUNTRIES SIMPLY DIDN’T DO IT RIGHT.
WELL, LEARN A LESSON FROM HISTORY!!
