Gun law backfires!Submitted by David_2008 on Fri, 01/11/2013 - 17:13
The Australian governments mandatory buy back of citizen's weapons resulted in:
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.
