Gosh. I wonder why?
In Response to Massive Influx of Refugees, Europeans Seek More Guns
by Warren Mass
As The New American has reported in multiple articles, European nations are frantically trying to accommodate the thousands of immigrants fleeing to Europe from the ongoing civil war in Syria. This massive influx, which has been described as an “invasion,” has prompted many Europeans to arm themselves, fearful that the migrants will cause a rise in violent crime, according to a report published by WorldNetDaily (WND) on October 26.
However, notes the report, citing Czech and Austrian sources, obtaining a firearm in Europe can be difficult to nearly impossible, depending on gun laws in each individual country. A Czech television reporter spoke mostly about the situation in neighboring Austria, which is in the main path of migrants traveling from Greece to their most popular destination — Germany.
I’m sorry, but I have to readily admit that my first thought was: oh boo-hoo. Europeans are rethinking gun control? A tad late perhaps?
“I’m disarmed. How do I keep me and my family safe, considering my ______ government appears to be disinterested in defending me from the invading Muslim hordes?”
And yes, they are invading Muslim hordes. They’re certainly not Buddhist hordes. You’re stewing, Europe, in the Leftist mess you created. You can’t get guns now that you actually need them to defend your families?
Live with it.
The Czech reporter stated that long guns such as shotguns and rifles have been selling out in Austria, and those who haven’t already purchased one may not have an opportunity to obtain one for some time. “If anyone wants to buy a long gun in Austria right now, too bad for them,” noted the Czech newscaster. “All of them are currently sold out.”
Funny thing is, guns are selling like hotcakes in the United States as well this year — the exact opposite intention of the Obama Administration. Even better, gun and ammunition purchases have “skyrocketed” in Fornicalia — particularly since Fornicalia Lt Governmor Gavin Newsom has said he’s going to put a measure on the ballot to enact even stricter gun regulations, also mandating background checks before you can purchase a single box of ammunition.
Great idea! Let’s make criminals out of citizens and leave the real criminals themselves entirely unaffected — by letting them out of jails and prisons, minimizing property crimes (by increasing the value of a stolen item before the crime constitutes a felony) and sending drug users and dealers to rehab instead of putting them in jail. AB 109, “realignment,” is already working like a charm (not), as is Proposition 47. Meaning: the criminals are doing very well in Fornicalia, and property crimes are likewise blossoming. Heroin users aren’t stupid, after all, just drugged. They know they can steal more items before they’re charged with a felony and actually have to enter the system.
(As an aside: the effect of AB109? In Los Angeles, because of the court and jail conditions associated with overcrowding, AB 109 inmates were serving anywhere from 20 percent of their sentence — after half-time was deducted. For the most serious and repeat offenders the percentage of time served peaked at around 40 percent of a sentence for the most serious offenses. The results of both AB 109 and Prop 47? The outcome “is criminals serving very short sentences and threatening public safety.”)
But wait until you read this:
I just returned from a gun rights meeting in Belgium, and I can attest that all over Europe people now want the means to defend themselves. Self-defense is no longer a dirty word. In countries like Austria, where it is still legal to own a firearm, gun sales are at record levels. I can tell you first-hand that people in Europe now wish they had a Second Amendment.
Yes, let’s repeat that last sentence for the brain-addled and ill-educated Leftists amongst us here (I know you’re there, I get your comments and emails):
“I can tell you first-hand that people in Europe now wish they had a Second Amendment.”
Socialists and Euro-Cheesers wishing for their own Second Amendment?
Even more astonishing:
Going back to the fears generated among Europeans by the large numbers of refugees from the Middle East, it appears that such fears are well grounded. The U.K.’s Daily Mail reported last May: “Islamic State terrorists who are hell-bent on committing atrocities in Britain are being smuggled into Europe by posing as refugees trying to cross the Mediterranean.”
Those “fears are well grounded.” Muslim terrorists posing as “refugees.” Oh no! Muslims wouldn’t stoop to something as bad as that, would they? Could they?
Listen up, American Leftists:
The Daily Mail cited as its source a Libyan security advisor, Abdul Basit Haroun, who used to live in Britain. Haroun said during a BBC Radio 5 Live Investigates program:
[Terrorists] use the boats for their people who they want to send to Europe as the European police don’t know who is from IS and who is a normal refugee. The boat owners have a list of who to take but some people come suddenly and they’re told, “Take them with you.”…
They are for IS — 100 per cent.
Which is why I say again and continue to say: keep Syrian and all other Muslim “refugees” out of the United States of America. ISIS has already infiltrated via our southern border. There are ISIS elements present in the US. My federal LE sources tell me so.
I say: let Europe, who so eschewed firearms and pointed their fingers at US “gun nuts,” stew in the juices of their own making and lack of foresight.
