17 Years After Gun Bans in Australia …Police Say Gun Crime is Out of Control

australia gun crime is out of control says police commissioner

In 1996 Australia unloaded some of the most severe gun bans and gun confiscation programs on record.  And for the guns that were not confiscated gun owners were forced to enter into license agreements and have their guns registered so the government knew what guns everyone had.

Well, they really only knew what guns the law abiding had, since none of the criminals actually followed the program.  Fancy that.

Breitbart just reported some interesting developments in Australia that prove all the anti-gun lawmakers wrong.  Gun control does NOT take guns out of the hands of criminals, it only disarms the law abiding, while making everyone less safe.

Because of the out of control crime, Australia law enforcement officials have been forced to carry out recent operations

The New South Wales police commissioner Andrew Scipione had this to say about the spike in gun crime,

“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.”

So it looks like the only ones left with all the guns are the criminals.  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.

Of course they will ignore the real facts behind the issue and overlook the fact that when guns are banned only the police and the criminals will have guns, leaving citizens to fend for themselves when lawlessness like we have seen in Australia starts to rise up.

In the last 12 months alone, over 3,300 people were charged with gun crimes, and over 9,000 guns have been confiscated.

The lesson?  Gun control only affects the law abiding gun owners.  Criminals are empowered by it.

    but how can this be true? if a criminal sees the victim is unarmed, he ( perp ) will put down his gun, that`s just human nature. isn`t that what one of our politicians said would happen? and our politicians would NEVER lie to us because they are honorable people. so are they ALL honorable people who only want to do what is best for us and the country.

    • Robert DeQuadros says

      Was not Brutus an honorable man who along with his gang of senators carried arms in to the Roman Forum illegally to off Caesar ?

      • David Thomas Bronzich says

        No, that’s a common misconception. It was the theater of Pompey the Great. Caesar was murdered at the feet of the statue of Pompey. But it was illegal to bear arms in the city of Rome. Only the Urban Cohort and the Vigiles (nightwatch or literally vigilant ones) were allowed to carry weapons. Needless to say, criminals were armed to the teeth.

        HAIL BRUTUS!!!! ~ Wannabe despots need to LEARN from past history before trying to be gods over the people they are supposed to be serving!!!!

    • Gabriel says

      Many people have no honor. It’s a cruel world, with many people that choose not to be human.

    • says

      We just have to send Piers Morgan to Australia and let him see for himself, maybe he will become a victim of crime himself, Oh I forgot, the Brits tossed him out as well, maybe the Aussies will do the same “calling for Crocodile Dundee”

    • Bre says

      Just because a criminal sees you unarmed does not mean that no harm will come to you. If they know for sure you have no weapons you pose no threat. AKA an easy target. There are several examples of people unloading a whole clip into unarmed or innocent people, even children. ‘Human nature’ isn’t something you can count on, or why would there be bad people in the first place?

    • JMC says

      … you actually think that a criminal would put down his gun after seeing an unarmed victim that would be oh-so-easy to rape, beat up, kidnap, rob, and/or kill… kid, you must be a special kind of stupid

    • JMC says

      Honor doesn’t exist at the moment when it comes to the government, don’t say that they’re doing honorable stuff. If something they do seems honorable, it is most likely either a cover up, or it’s for their public images

    • SMS says

      Are you e’ffn serious??? Keep drinking the Kool-Aid my friend and then start reading the “real” stats and STOP watching and listening to the main/lame stream media!!! Get educated, informed and updated on US Policy and it’s Lawmakers. Most of them are corrupt, starting w/ the POTUS on down. Forget Partisan…forget Republican or Democrat. Start with reading the U.S. Constitution and the Declaration of Independence! That is what our Founding Fathers wanted and foresaw for this country…that is why they created those two documents…They did not want an administration like the one we currently have…a soft Tyrannical regime…and if “We the People” don’t do something soon…we will become slaves to it. NOT me, I’m a Patriot and will go down fighting. From my cold dead hands! .

    I do NOT give a flying darn what happens or does not happen in other countries. I AM an American. My RIGHT to own a weapon…and I do. It does not leave my house. It has sat there all by itself all day long and NEVER killed so mush as a fly. I will secure my weapon and hide it if Gov insists in tampering with Constitution. because put simply….THEY ARE NOT GETTING MY GUN….no how, no way. I recognize how the Constitution was ORIGINALLY written….not idiotic changes they want to make to INCREASE government control, which is their TRUE objective. If you do not like my stance on this issue, well,……GET OVER IT as it is NONE of your business.

    • Billie says

      If your gun is registered the gov. will take it. They have already started visiting homes of law abiding citizens to confiscate all guns in their homes. If you do not turn yours over you will be arrested. Things are taking a turn for the worse in our country my friend.

  3. Kenneth says

    This is one those “DUH” articles. Man, politicians are so stupid and brain dead!!! Don’t they get that the best way to curb criminal activity is to arm the law-abiding non-criminals with weapons. Any criminal with a brain will not attempt to assault people who they know are armed. DUH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Will says

      Kenneth, Never in a million years are the politicians so stupid that they don’t know that criminals won’t obey gun ban laws. Crime has nothing to do with banning guns beyond getting the effeminate pumped up for taking all those loud, mean GUNS. The poli’s simply want us disarmed so we are no threat to them when they “help us to better fit” in the new society. In other words get complete control over the subjects.

  4. Don Pike says

    This matter of the intent of Gun Control has been proven over and over. Gun control is a Think Tank, Globalist run agenda to get control of populations, worldwide. There is absolutely no intent to make people safe. It is madness to believe to the contrary. And it is especially naive to believe that politicians don’t understand all of the forgoing. Politicians know that they are in place to do the bidding of their shadowy minders.This fact has been illustrated time and time again – and not necessarily just in connection with guns.

    Australia has NEVER had any problem with guns – but that did not stop the orders coming from above, to our PM, Federal & State police and an assortment of others to allow the organised killing of 35 people and the maiming of 20 more, to maintain their minder’s evil agenda, at The Port Arthur Historical Site in 1996.

  5. guy rippingale says

    Don pike. Are you seriously suggesting that the port arthur massacre was conceived by the australian government as a ruse to limit gun ownership amongst australian citizens? You conspiracy whackos are utter paranoid retards. Gun control in australia has been partly resonsible for a 17 year free period of no massacres in australia since port arthur and we view this as a resounding success. Guns arent banned in australia but types of guns are and regulations are in place to prevent nutjobs getting their hands on military style firearms. Guns for hunting and sports shooting are available for those who want them by following guidelines laws and obtaining licences after getting approval. I am not anti guns. I am pro control. Any sane person would be also.
