Most lists of the top 10 most free countries do not include the US, although I think it should be #1. The top tens are usually populated by EU countries and some have the UK at #1, believe it or not. Personally, I think European countries started out as freedom-loving, but have been slowly taken over by the despotic regime that is the EU. It is essentially led by Germany, meaning Hitler is posthumously getting his way. The EU's approach is a lot more patient and subtle than Adolph's but no less effective.

In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

Put on a happy face, adjust your attitude!
A democratic wet dream, will not happen - sense ability, we have all the guns makes no difference what they say or do itís been too late cat has been out the bag for hundred of years and multiplied. No can do, not possible!
Besides, God is in control and He owns all the guns IMO and Heís pro gun.
Have a wonderful day 💕
What would happen if you put the same amount of trust in God that you do in the brakes on what your driving on the highways?
Think about it.
I'm not a Trump fan and felt his chances of winning a second term were not good. But, based on the positions being espoused by the current field of "Democrats" I think his chances are looking better and better every day.
The history of civilization has been subjection, willingly or unwillingly, to Kings, Lords, Barons or Despots (who invariably believe they are annointed by the heavens) the one common is they are all Tyrants who rule unquestioningly with an iron fist.
The U.S.A. is the one true shining contrary example, and it looks as if human nature is slowly over taking that grand experiment.
As for the OP, the story does lay it out there. It does imply removal of guns from the grasp of the common man, just dances around confiscation.
Funny how it credits the "Elites" for so many past changes and places expectations on them for future changes. Makes it seem the "common man" is just so much debris.
There are so many outright lies, misinformation (does Missouri have a gun license scheme such as Conneticut? or does Texa have "more mass shootings" than California?) and progressive skewed studies buried into such a lenghty articles that those pieces are glossed over.
Make no mistake though, they are serious, determined and relentless.

I posted the other day about the people who think it is cool to say that they don't trust Trump to protect their second amendment rights. I asked that in view of the push by Democrats for gun control who else but Trump would you suggest we vote for? Evidently what I said must have been considered too political because it was removed. My post was in defense of our 2nd amendment rights just as much as this article is. My post was " Be careful what you say." I didn't get any explanation why my post was just gone?
I recently wrote this on another forum, and I think that it is also appropriate here.
I apologize: It's political philosophy, I guess.
You know, back when there were real Progressives, back in the days of Teddy Roosevelt and William Howard Taft, their aim was to curtail the excesses of that time's "robber baron" industrialists, so that everybody else would also have a chance to prosper.
It wasn't a matter of making people conform to some narrow, rigid ideal of thought and behavior, but rather a desire to permit people to enjoy a larger, more varied menu from which to make their economic choices.
Contrast Roosevelt and Taft with the so-called (self-identified) Progressives of today.
Like the so-called AntiFa, who are more fascistic than any Fascist ever was, and the so-called Anarchists, who are merely out to destroy and to wreak havoc for their own enjoyment, today's Progressives haven't the slightest clue about what a Progressive really is.
I guess that it's a form of revisionist history, or something like that.
