Eugene Robinson is Clueless

The following was posted in the comments section of an article reporting the response of a Washington Post article by a clueless Eugene Robinson

cupera2 sez: In 1997, Australia made it almost impossible to own a firearm after the buy back/confication. Since then, accidental gun deaths are 300% higher than the pre-1997 ban rate. The assault rate has increased 800% since 1991, and increased 200% since the 1997 gun ban. Robbery and armed robbery have increase 20% from the pre-97 ban rate. From immediately after the ban was instituted in 1997 through 2002, the robbery and armed robbery rate was up 200% over the pre-ban rates. In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 171%. (Ed: This information has not been fact checked)

rm56 sez: What this imbecile Robinson will never tell you or admit to about Australia taking away firearms from its citizens is this little group of facts. Since Australia disarmed its people violent crimes went up by over 300%. Murders up, robberies up, assaults up, home invasions up, rapes up. Oh and my favorite, murders of senior citizens skyrocketed up because criminals now know they have no way to protect themselves. Seems that while knee jerk politicians all decided to "buy back guns" at pennies on the dollar so your thousand of dollars worth of weaponry is worth nothing and you get screwed over in more ways then one. Austrailian criminals did what criminals always do, they completely ignored the laws against owning weapons. So Eugene Robinson can go to Australia any time he wants to where it appears that the only people there now who own weapons...are all criminals! Disarming law obiding citizens does not work. All it does is make them easy prey for the criminals! (Ed: This information has not been fact checked)

cupera2 sez: A LITTLE GUN CONTROL HISTORY In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Germany established gun control in 1928 and 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. Guatemala established gun control in 1964. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Uganda established gun control in 1970. From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. Cambodia established gun control in 1956. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated. In 1995 - 6,000 Bosnian Muslims were massacred at Srebrenica after they were disarmed by the UN and put in an ironically named "UN safe area". We in America have seen what progressive and benevolent governments do when they disarm their citizens and we have no intension of repeating these for mentioned episodes of government gun control. Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens. For the parents or families that lose a loved one it is a tragedy, when is a million dead from gun control it is just a statistic. Paul Harvey
