Australia's Gun Ban NOT Working So Well

Confiscation of firearms - the worst nightmare for Americans.  Happened in Australia...with disastrous results:

The statistics for the years following the ban are now in: 1. Accidental gun deaths are 300% higher than the pre-1997 ban rate 2. The assault rate has increased 800% since 1991, and increased 200% since the 1997 gun ban. 3. Robbery and armed robbery have increase 20% from the pre-97 ban rate. 4. 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.
