Ran across this little gem today:
For those of us fighting for our traditional rights, the US 2nd Amendment is a rare light in an ever darkening room. Governments will use the excuse of trying to protect the people from maniacs and crime, but are in reality, it is the bureaucrats protecting their power and position. In all cases where guns are banned, gun crime continues and often increases. As for maniacs, be it nuts with cars (NYC, Chapel Hill NC), swords (Japan), knives (China) or home made bombs (everywhere), insane people strike. They throw acid (Pakistan, UK), they throw fire bombs (France), they attack. What is worse, is, that the best way to stop a maniac is not psychology or jail or “talking to them”, it is a bullet in the head, that is why they are a maniac, because they are incapable of living in reality or stopping themselves.
Is the above from an NRA staffer? Or from some “right-wing gun nut”?
Hardly. The above is from a column published in Pravda. Yes, that Pravda – the one published in the former Soviet Union.
People in the former Soviet Union know a thing or two about how sanctioned government oppression works, and what allows it. We should listen to them.
The entire article is worth a read. It’s also worth sharing.
