    Russian gun advice for Americans

    Hi,
    Somebody posted something a day or so ago and I followed links on interesting things and came across this article. Some of you will probably know this info about Russia and how it use to be where they all had guns just like we do and what happened after they were slowly taken away. I had not heard of it. Wonderful article and well written.

    Thanks for the good read Sister. Here's a short video that tells a similar story but in Austria.

    Great stuff. The takeaway:

    "Do not be fooled by a belief that progressives, leftists hate guns. Oh, no, they do not. What they hate is guns in the hands of those who are not marching in lock step of their ideology. They hate guns in the hands of those who think for themselves and do not obey without question. They hate guns in those whom they have slated for a barrel to the back of the ear."
    "Yet this government never of itself furthered any enterprise, but by the alacrity with which it got out of the way... The character inherent in the American people has done all that has been accomplished; and it would have done somewhat more, if the government had not sometimes got in its way."

    That's great, thanks! Loved what she said in the end - "keep your guns and buy more guns"!

    One thing is clear, once citizens lose the right to own firearms there is nothing they can do to get them back.

    I read on another forum that in England there was some outcry for the return of their gun rights as a response to crime. Of course the politicians have little tolerance for such radicals.

    That is true. They had no tolerance of us nor we of them.

    The nation has more latent power than the politicians but has been collectively dumbed down by the politicians and won't use the power available to it.

    I think about this a lot, the power we have and the power the ones we put in have and the fact that nobody is doing anything....anything at all. I don't get it.

    Right now I'm waiting for the other shoe to drop in another thread that I worded veddy veddy carefully so as not to offend closeted liberals in this forum. Mustn't get too political

    That was a pretty depressing article, since that's clearly where we're heading with no sign of slowing down and no hope of changing things.


    They've been chipping away at the 2a since what, 1934? How long until we've got a de facto ban on all firearms? (Hint: Be very, very scared when you start hearing about a proposed "ammo tax").

    I'll keep my guns and take the punishment. If I'm not dead and I get out, I know where they are.
