    I would like to know who is telling the truth here.

    A LITTLE GUN 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 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.
    ------------------------------

    -----------------------------
    Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control: 56 million.
    -------------------------
    You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
    Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
    Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!
    The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
    With guns, we are 'citizens' Without them, we are 'subjects'.
    During WW II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
    If you value your freedom, please spread this anti gun-control message to all of your friends.
    The purpose of fighting is to win.
    There is no possible victory in defense.
    The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either.
    The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.
    SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN!
    SWITZERLAND 'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE. SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!
    IT'S A NO BRAINER!
    DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET. I'm a firm believer in the 2nd Amendment!

    Did y'all see that a mother in GA emptied a .38 revolver into a home intruder ... it was enough to take him down, but not enough to kill him. She was at home with her twin 8-yr-old boys, huddled in a closet with them, trying to hide from the intruder. When the intruder found the closet, he was facing a mom with her gun. She had called her husband at work, and he told her to hide, and he called 911. The police arrived shortly after the mom had downed the intruder ... who, it turned out, had a long rap sheet. The article did not mention whether the intruder was armed, with a gun or otherwise.

    It did say he had a crowbar... thats plenty enough for me... actually just the fact that he broke into the house is plenty for me. She did the right thing, except for letting him live.
