Default Facts and Myths of Guns

I can't remember where I found this (It may have been here on FTF but I'm not sure) http://www.gunfacts.info/pdfs/gun-facts/6.0/Gun-Facts-v6.0-screen.pdf
This book is really interesting. It has undeniable proof that guns control does not work, and that the registering of guns ends badly. I think if we could get anti gun people to read this, they would change their minds (at least some what). Anyway, it's a great read. Enjoy.

P.S. Here is a little something from the back of the book that really shows what gun control can do.

Quote:
In 1911, Turkey established gun control. Subsequently, from 1915 to 1917, 1.5-million Armenians, deprived of the means to defend themselves, were rounded up and killed.

In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control. Then, from 1929 to 1953,
approximately 20-millon dissidents were rounded up and killed.

In 1938 Germany established gun control. From 1939 to 1945 over 13-million Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, mentally ill, union leaders, Catholics and others, unable to fire a shot in protest, were rounded up and killed.

In 1935, China established gun control. Subsequently, between 1948 and 1952, over 20-million dissidents were rounded up and killed.

In 1956, Cambodia enshrined gun control. In just two years (1975-1977) over one million "educated" people were rounded up and killed.

In 1964, Guatemala locked in gun control. From 1964 to 1981, over 100,000 Mayan Indians were rounded up and killed as a result of their inability to defend themselves.

In 1970, Uganda embraced gun control. Over the next nine years over 300,000 Christians were rounded up and killed.

Over 56-million people have died because of gun control in the last century...

Most of them are too stubborn to submit to reading factual things and some people will do anything to not be proven wrong.

IIRC, WWI and WWII had total overall killed

ranging in the neighborhood of 35 million for both

conflicts combined.

If you add the additional 15 million Chairman

Mao's Shining Path wiped out, to bring the China

figure closer to the real 35 million who died, that brings the

gun control death toll to 71 MILLION, over twice what

died in both world wars.



WHOA.

I'm afraid that your probably right. The good thing about this book is that he backs up all these facts with really good sources.
