    This just got forwarded to me so I thought I'd post it here.

    ------------------------------

    ------------------------- --
    Germany established gun control in 1938 and from 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
    ------------------------------
    China established gun control in 1935. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.

    -----------------------------
    Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million..
    ------------------------------
    It has now been 12 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 results 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 (yes, 44 percent)!
    In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!

    It will never happen here? I bet the Aussies said that too!

    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 is 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 US 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 him of this history lesson.

    With Guns...........We Are "Citizens".
    Without Them........We Are "Subjects".

    During W.W.II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED !
    Note: Admiral Yamamoto who crafted the attack on Pearl Harbor had attended Harvard U 1919-1921 & was Naval Attaché to the U. S. 1925-28. Most of our Navy was destroyed at Pearl Harbor & our Army had been deprived of funding & was ill prepared to defend the country.
    It was reported that when asked why Japan did not follow up the Pearl Harbor attack with an invasion of the U. S. Mainland, his reply was that he had lived in the U. S.. & knew that almost all households had guns.

    If you value your freedom, Please spread this anti-gun control message to all your friends!

    "When the government fears the people, there is liberty.
    When the people fear the government, there is tyranny."

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor, a contingent of JapaneseI-Class submarines sailed from Yokosuka via the Marshall Islands to take up positions off Hawaii and the coast of North America. Five of these vessels carried midget two-man submarines and 11 carried aircraft. [/FONT] [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Early on the morning of September 9, 1942, the Japanese submarine I-25 surfaced off Brookings. The crew quickly assembled a specially designed seaplane, and within a few minutes pilot Nobuo Fujita, observer Shoji Okuda, and two 170 pound incendiary bombs were catapulted airborne. The plane flew toward Cape Blanco Light and crossed the coastline, following a course southeast for about 50 miles to drop its payload on Wheeler Ridge and become the first enemy aircraft to bomb the US mainland.[/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif] The Japanese intended to ignite the forests of the Pacific Northwest and cause panic. The attempt was frustrated by an unusually wet fire season and vigilant U.S. Forest Service lookouts atop Mt. Emily and at Bear Wallow. The fires were quickly extinguished and 50 pounds of bomb fragments were turned over to U.S. Military and FBI Investigators. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Twenty days later the I-25 surfaced 50 miles west of Cape Blanco. This time Fujita crossed the coastline near Port Orford. Forest Service lookouts spotted the plane, and so did ranchers along the Sixes River. Firefighters were dispatched, but not no fire or bomb debris was discovered. Fujita returned to Oregon in 1962, but this time his mission was peaceful. While attending Brookings' annual Azalea Festival, he surrendered his 400 year-old Samurai-type sword to the Mayor as "The finest possible way of closing the story. To pledge peace and friendship." Nobuo Fujita returned again in 1992, to plant a redwood seedling at the bombed site on the 50th anniversary of the attack.[/FONT]

    A jap sub shelled fort stevens with a deck mounted sub gun, but the post commander decided to not return fire as to not illuminate his battery and give the japs a clearer target

    Copy and paste the URL, for some reason the last character won't save right.
