Many Democrats have no idea what they are talking about when they not only support stricter gun control, but push for banning private gun ownership. They often point to Australia, Japan and the United Kingdom of examples of how gun bans have been working. They point to how few mass shootings these countries have.

However, what they don’t realize is that mass shootings are not the only indicator as to the success or failure of a national gun ban. Mass shootings may be down while the total number of crimes, including homicides, involving guns may be higher. Is one worth the tradeoff of the other?

(Great American Politics) – Many of America’s anti-gun fanatics continue to point to nations like the United Kingdom as a good reason ban private ownership of firearms. They also point to Australia and Japan.

A clarification up front. The United Kingdom is not totally gunless, however, private ownership of firearms is highly restricted and often confined to use in hunting or sports like trap and skeet.

In Australia, private ownership of firearms was banned several decades ago, but there are still plenty of guns in the island nation. It seems that every year, there is at least one or two programs to get citizens to turn in their guns and each time, they report hundreds or thousands of guns turned in, but it seems there are still many thousands of guns still in the hands of people.

What the anti-fanatics don’t tell anyone is that when Australia enacted their gun ban, a number of crimes skyrocketed. Prior to the gun ban, many of Australia’s police departments did not have an official classification for a home invasion, but after the gun ban, they had to create such a designation, but home invasions increased dramatically and why not, since most law-abiding citizens turned in their guns, so they have no defense against the home invaders…

More police in the United Kingdom are asking to carry guns while on duty and more British citizens are beginning to demand the right to own a gun. As crime and terrorism increase, people are scared and want to be able to defend themselves, indicating that gun bans do not make a nation and people safer.
