Australia’s 1996 Program Results Prove That Gun-Grabbing U.S. Politicians Are Insane

In 1996, Australia banned semi-automatic rifles, shotguns and other “assaultMass Shootings Word Cloud weapons.

Now it’s 17 years later, and even though they were successful in grabbing a mother lode of guns from a now-disarmed and law-abiding public … they have a new problem.

Out of control gun violence.

At Brietbart, NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipone explained…

“There is no single source of gun violence… guns have fallen into the hands of organized crime, outlaw motorcycle gangs, mid-level crime groups and petty thieves and the lines are often blurred.”

Well, duh!

And now Australia has started Operation Talon, pulling together all of its gun control operations into one and going after the criminals. I suppose it’s trying and clean up the mess it started by disarming its own citizens.

I guess this proves that criminals don’t pay very much attention to gun bans and control measures, doesn’t it?  Of course they don’t.  All Australia did was make it easier for criminals to operate against defenseless citizens.

But in what has to be a clear act of outright insanity, our fearless leaders in Washington want to do the same exact thing here in the U.S.

From Guns n’ Freedom…

And the gun policies that Australia has enforced are the exact ones that gun control pushers like Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Senator Dianne Feinstein want to see here in the U.S.

The great scientist Albert Einstein is often credited as defining insanity as:

Doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.

Well, after seeing the results of 17 years of gun-grabbing policy in Australia and then still trying to do the same thing here in our own country … that can only be described as insanity.

    • Our esteemed government is FUBAR ! (The last three letters stand for ‘beyond all recognition/redemption’!)

  1. I have always said that liberalism is a form of mental illness and I guess sort of proves my point.

  2. Does anyone have an idea how many semi-automatic weapons are in this country and in the hands of outlaws? How many have been killed in major cities with slum areas by police, military personnel or federal officers? How many have been killed by illegal firearms in the hands of criminals? Any human with some intelligence can figure that out. Why can’t liberals?

      • Not actually. Dead pay no taxes. But they DO want us defenseless and totally dependent on the government for protection, which will ALWAYS come just AFTER we needed it. The defenseless part is required so that when the sheep figure out that the protection will ALWAYS be just late enough that it will do no good, we CAN’T take matters BACK into our own hands. Once the government has a power, they NEVER willingly give it up. NEVER!

    • Liberals and Democrats world wide have a utopian dream of a world where only the rich elitist posses guns. They believe if only they can force control the peasants, that the world will be a peaceful place. Then along comes another Hitler?

    • In 2014 the FBI reported that there were 248 murders by rifles both bolt action and semi-automatic. This number has been dropping for years. There are nearly 100,000,000 rifles lawfully owned in the US, of these there are well over 10,000,000 semi-automatic rifles (“assault” weapons). There were 1567 killings using knives, 660 deaths using hands & feet and over 3500 drownings. It is always difficult when someone dies but when you consider that 2,500,000 people die every year in America – 6849 per day, To advocate that we ban assault weapons because 248 people died is insane. Just to put this into more perspective 440,000 people died because of errors made by doctors, hospitals and drug companies. Over a decade that comes out to over 4,000,000 people. Cars kill over 30,000 people ever year – are we going to outlaw cars because 248 people died. If the government were to buy back these weapons it would cost over a billion dollars and the losses to the gun industry would be in the $100’s of million per year. Canada had a “Long Gun” ban which they started 12 years ago, 2 years ago they removed it and stated that after 10 years and $1 billion that it had made no difference.

      • The Democratic Communist Party in America has only one purpose in mind in accordance with their “Communist Rule for Revolution” playbook under Section (14) (C) “Cause the registration of all firearms on some pretext with the view of confiscation of them and leaving the population helpless.”

        Adolph Hitler used the same document to disarm the people of Austria without firing a shot leaving the Austrian people helpless and unable to defend their country from Hitler’s invasion.

        It doesn’t take much to figure out that the Democrats’ desire is to establish a one party system with them as absolute rulers over the America people; and for that to happen, they must disarm the American people and destroy our Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.

        Another obsticle the Democrats haven’t learned is that American patriots will never surrender our firearms or sit still for their tyranny.

    • Jerry, it seems like if the government took away all of our guns the criminals will police liberal laws the way they seem fit.

  3. When will the people(sheep) realize that the Government is the “Wolf in sheep’s clothing”? Anything the government touch’s is screwed up beyond repair, examples can be seen everywhere. The VA medical system, the tax system, the current national medical program, the immigration system, etc… Must we keep repeating this same scenario over and over before the American people people pull their heads out of their rectal orifice? Australia is no better than any other Government, just slower to learn history’s lessons. Socialism is running rampant and unchecked in the free world countries today, and the people(sheep) are flocking to it without a care in the world. Does the free world really want countries like Russia, China, North Korea to be the global leaders we follow? The people in these countries are disarmed and slaves to a bully government that has no will to change. Not in my America! I will die fighting to keep my 2nd Amendment rights as long as I have breath in my lungs!

    • Amen & pass the ammo!!!
      The 2A is what keeps the others relevant
      & we still have the remnants of our Freedom.
      After elections things will be much better.

  4. Truth be told but gun grabbers never listen to or tell the truth. They are all pathological liars. I have a cousin that lives in Australia and she can attest that the restrictive gun laws did nothing but create more victims of gun violence than it prevented. Murders by gun has gone up and gun violence in general also has increased. These are the facts that gun grabbers will not accept and even try to hide.

  5. The first time I had a firearm was in 1942. In basic training in New Jersey. I was taught by a sarge who had opted out of the marines in 1938. When Pearl Harbor was attacked by the Japanese, he rejoined the army. My first rifle was a 22 at an indoor range. He mentioned one thing which was the most important. He said’ “if you are second fastest you are dead”. I am 94 now and have a rifle but will not give it up to anyone. I have never been in trouble nor needed the use except for hunting. I used the proper firearm for whatever hunting I have done.
    I would dare the people who are trying to remove firearms from the abiding citizenry and have them walk up to a criminal and take their firearm away. They better have their body bag with them because they will need it. There is no guts in these people. Criminals will always have this handful of bravery because they are gutless otherwise.

  6. The government is not concerned about criminals with guns. Armed criminals are not a threat to a totalitarian government.
    Armed law abiding citizens in great numbers are a deterrent to tyranny.
    Progressive socialist democrats do NOT want a citizenry that has the capability to be a deterrent to their tyranny.
    THAT IS THE REASON THEY ARE WORKING TO OUTLAW THE FIREARMS THAT ENABLE THAT CAPABILITY!
    AR15 TYPE RIFLES! STANDARD FULL CAPACITY MAGAZINES!
    Shotguns and handguns are under ranged pop-guns in the fight against tyranny.
    THIS IS ALL ABOUT “TAKING THE CAPABILITY”!

  7. Hellary has mention in a lot of her speeches that the Australian gun grab of 1996 worked, well she’s lying again. I have a letter from one of Australia’s senator’s and he states America don’t let your government take your guns we did it here and we are sorry we did. The criminals still have their guns and we the law abiding citizens have none and crime has gone up 60% and that is a conservative estimate. He also said that they are working to get the gun band over turned.

  8. ” We in America do not have government by the majority — we have government by the majority who participate …… All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent . ” —- Thomas Jefferson…. > ” I am committed against every thing which , in my judgment , may weaken , endanger , or destroy { the Constitution } ….. and especially against all extension of Executive power ; and I am committed against any attempt to rule the free people of this country by the power and the patronage of the Government itself . “………Daniel Webster >>>>Sadly , with the passing of time , the Oath or Affirmation of office has become perfunctory . It has lost its meaning of our elected leaders …. It is hoped that this publication will awaken a desire within the inhabitants of this nation to restore to the Constitution the eminence given it by our Founders , that we may as a nation be blessed with continued freedom , security and happiness ……. Ronald M. Mann , Deputy Director Commission on the Bicentennial of the United States Constitution >>> Truer words were never spoken ,, Now we as Americans , all should honor them !!!!

  9. You think they would have tried going after the criminals first. I guess they were blinded by the brilliance in their thinking.

  10. So, ok, we know that gun confiscation is ignorant and stupid. This article talks about criminals with guns. What are the stats? 1 murder in 100,000 or 1 murder in 5,000? Robberies, assaults, and so forth. I think this article is blind leading the ignorant into gun bliss. I am a stanch second amendment supporter. I just can not by this article completely…………………….

  11. The U.S. Government isn’t stupid. I should say the current administration is anything but stupid! Believe it or not, they are able to look at Austrailia and see the results of having a disarmed society. I should say the disarmed good guys. The bad guys still have all the guns and do the bad guy things they do. Austrailia knew it, and the U.S. knows it. That’s not the point, and it is completely irrelevant to the progressives. They take away our guns and we (the good guys) get killed because we are unable to defend ourselves. Who Cares?!?!? The government does not care about that. There are hundreds of millions of us, and the loss of a few thousand or so every year is completely acceptable. Their agenda is to remove the good guy’s guns because we represent the only threat to them when they steal America from us. It could never do having tens of millions of us with guns totally able to resist or fight back. Get the guns away from us first! It is a top priority! Whatever they (our government) decide to do next will be ever so much easier! I really don’t need to say anymore. I hope you all understand.

  12. The Right to Bear arms is one of our most important rights…..as a former US Army Colonel I know this…every legislator should know this as well…….sadly though our media preaches seizing guns. Almost all who push this the heaviest are daily protected by trained professionals who carry auto weapons, and have at their disposal awesome resources, but MOST of us have only one fail safe……our own citizens, who care about us…….and will fight to keep us free. Disarm all of us except police, and military, and criminals……is the most dangerous scenario……proceed with great caution.
    Inviting immigrants into your country……is INVASION…….the easy, inexpensive way, think the new immigrants will accept your ways……WRONG……they will bring their own rules, and take your jobs and your resources, and leave you starving and surrounded. Hillary wants these immigrants to support her brand of sickness……we need a better Democratic candidate!

    • NONE OF THE ABOVE. This box is what is needed on the ballot. When None of the above gets
      more votes than the lairs running for office do, those lairs are removed from the ballot
      and a new set of lairs are put on. This country is in big trouble, on one hand we have the
      Clown, Bigot, Bully, Draft Dodger, and Lair. Whose EGO won’t even fit into the White House.
      On the other we have the friend of Wall Street, the BIG money crowd, a career politician
      (haven’t we had enough of these?), the Queen of scandals. After all politicians only tell the
      truth two times in their careers, “Elect me” “Reelect me” The rest of the time they don’t
      even know or care who we are. They are too busy trying to figure out a way to screw us and
      paying back the money from their Lords & Masters that bought their offices for them.

  13. I am a widow with two houses. I have had gun training since my husband died and keep my gun next to my beds. When the trainer said “Shoot to kill ” I said I could not kill anyone. His reply as to what would happen to me if I only wounded an invader made me understand a choice I must make for saving myself. Who are these gun grabbers and what are they thinking ? Especially politicians who want our guns taken away but have armed guards follow them where ever they go. God save us from politicians whose actions could harm many of us and God Bless America.

    • If it helps Beverly, just think of “shooting to stop the threat” because that’s all you are doing. You don’t want them to die or not die, you just want the threat to you to stop. And the best way to do that is to shoot them multiple times, accurately, in their vital zones.

  14. I agree with you. Destroying all the guns that you could find in the world will not stop
    the violence. Why? Criminals, and Terrorists DO NOT OBEY ANY LAWS, why do you think we
    call them criminals and terrorists?
    It would be impossible to find all the guns in the world. Hell!! I can make a working gun
    out the junk box in my workshop, all that you would be doing is disarming the the good guys.
    The Bad Guys will still be armed. The Human species is a group of warrior apes, we have
    been killing each other since we first picked up a rock.
    People seem to think that getting rid of the things that we use to kill one another will
    cure everything. In that case other things that we use are hammers, axes, knives, sticks,
    automobiles, even our hands. Using that logic we would be in a pretty sorry state of
    affairs, as Humans still can and will use anything to kill one another. Might as well
    start banning rocks.

  15. TO CONQUER A NATION “FIRST” DISARM IS CITIZENS, ADOLPH HITLER, 1933. GUN CONTROL WILL MAKE US SAFE, THE WORLD WILL FOLLOW OUR LEAD, ADOLPH HITLER, 1935. WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED AFTER THAT AMERICA. MY GRANDMA STELLA BORKOWSKI, WAS AN ESCAPE OUT OF POLAND WHEN HITLER CAME SMASHING TO THE FRONT DOOR. HER GREAT WORDS OF WISDOM: “DON’T EVER GIVE UP YOUR GUNS, YOU CAN’T FIGHT A MACHINE GUN WITH A PITCH FORK, THEY MADE US RESISTER ALL OUR GUNS THAN TOOK THEM AWAY AND OUR MEN COULDN’T FIGHT”. WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA!!!!! TRUMP IS AMERICA’S ONLY SALVATION!!! THAT CORRUPT, LYING, COMMIE P.O.S. IS GOING TO JAIL FOR LIFE.

  16. It always makes me laugh when a well written article concerning gun with facts is posted and you see not one comment from the anti gun crowd.They are nothing more then parrots repeating what their masters are saying.
    stupid assholes.

  17. The gun confiscation problem of Australia was duplicated in France, and Great Britain and some other countries. Violent crime involving guns here in the U.S. varies by locality, so I will just use the number as “X”. If our guns are confiscated or controlled, we can expect our violent gun crimes to increase two-fold to four-fold and in some localities , like Chicago, New York City and Boston, it could be a factor of ten. Logic, deductive reason and common sense dictates, where citizens have no guns, crime is rampant. Also, it has been proven, the world over, that criminals do not turn in their weapons. Those points are so clear that those people advocating gun control of the citizens, must be either extremely ignorant or they have ulterior motives—–and I believe it is predominantly the latter. We have several NWO groups, including the Muslims, that are strong proponents of gun control, and more than one group is “stirring the political pot”, to create dissension within the country, so that violence will occur and they can advocate still more gun control. Keep in mind, the original intent of the Second Amendment was to keep the citizens armed so they could resist tyranny—-that point is more important today than when the constitution was written. If our guns are confiscated, who in authority will take responsibility for the increased deaths that sure to occur?

  18. The headline should actually be not only INSANE but STUPID AND DANGEROUS and the report/message be faxed, e-mailed or make certain all members of congress, the senate and state and city governments read what not only Australia but European and other countries are experiencing.

    When I was growing up I had a different opinion of what everybody called Gringos. Unfortunately, that has markedly changed and continues to change when I hear that on top, now China and Russia are going to have a way to restrict freedom of speech via Internet.

    Another issue that both Democrats, Republicans and everybody in government have allowed and contribute to happen.

    Shame to all the uninformed voters who keep on applauding the same politicians and media people who continue to lie and now when there’s someone who has never been in government, their peons in the media are preventing to reverse the INSANITY which should again be also called STUPIDITY and IGNORANCE.

    They are so afraid that by their own comments (C. Roberts) demonstrate how they don’t really care about the people they supposedly defend and care about. Is for the safety of your children! Sure!

    Inundating the country with illegals for their vote in exchange for welfare is not only a shame but a vicious cycle that only perpetuates poverty, crime and dependency and definitely does not bring prosperity to any nation (taxes and prices will necessarily have to go up).

    Although it might already be too late, please, wake up AMERICA!

    I think I should know better being an ex-third world country citizen and coming from a place where the rulers are only those with the weapons (government, cartels and criminals but not law-abiding citizens).
