Europe rethinks guns

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 AB109In 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.

A “mass stabbing” in Yolo County, Fornicalia, injured six persons seriously this past Saturday, the 17th.


6 birthday party guests hurt in Yolo County mass stabbing

by Maneeza Iqbal

MADISON, Calif. (KCRA) —Six people were stabbed during a girl’s birthday party Saturday night in Madison, a town 11 miles west of Woodland, the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office.

The band member said two of his band mates were stabbed. A woman who tried to stop the suspect was also hurt. Other witnesses said two of the six victims were airlifted to a hospital.

A machete attack in Stockton then occurred on Sunday the 18th, involving Mel and Big Block Loc, from the

Man attacked with machetes

STOCKTON — Two men armed with machetes confronted a man just south of downtown Sunday concerning the theft of a bicycle. They assaulted the man, leaving him with a large cut on his head, police reported.

The noon incident occurred in the first block of West Scotts Avenue near South Commerce Street. Police reported the 28-year-old victim was treated at an area hospital for a non-life-threatening wound on his head.

His assailants were both described as men in their 30s. One had dreadlocks and is known as “Mel.” The other suspect is known as “Big Block Loc,” according to police.

There was a second stabbing in Stockton, on Sunday the 18th.  From the

Man stabbed in neck

STOCKTON — During an early morning altercation Sunday in north Stockton, a 25-year-old man was stabbed in the neck and his attacker was arrested, police reported.

The incident occurred about 5:34 a.m. in the 4400 block of Cotton Court, a short street just north of the Calaveras River off East Bianchi Road east of North El Dorado Street.

The victim was transported to an area hospital for treatment of a non-life-threatening stab wound, according to police.

Officers arrested Gregorio Cisneros, 21, on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, according to a report.

A fourth deadly stabbing occurred in the city of Modesto, on Sunday morning the 18th.  Again, from

Suspect arrested in fatal Modesto car wash stabbing

by Maneeza Iqbal

MODESTO, Calif. (KCRA) —A man died after he was stabbed Sunday morning at a Modesto car wash, police said.

The 39-year-old man was stabbed multiple times around 11:45 a.m. at the business on Yosemite Boulevard, near Rosina Avenue. Police said the man was taken to a nearby hospital, where he later died. No other information about the victim was released.

These four separate incidents involving edged weapons in northern Fornicalia, all within a 60-mile radius of Sacramento — the Belly of the Bill Beast — occurred in the span of a single weekend; just two days.  That’s just one 60-mile-radius within roughly one county.  There are 58 counties in Fornicalia.  Multiply this edged weapon activity times 50 states.  Per day.  There are 365 days in a year.  You get the point.  (Sorry.  Couldn’t help that.)

People shouldn’t have to worry about knife attacks.  Clearly the persons using knives against others in violence are mental defectives or abject criminals.

One thing we do know, however, is that there won’t be a state or federal hue and cry to abolish knives or edged weapons, despite the statistics involved.

For example, according to crime statistics from the FBI, knives are consistently used to kill people far more often than rifles are used. Five times as many murders were committed with knives than were committed with rifles last year.  But again, people screaming for knives to be banned over rifles?  Anyone?  Bueller?

Murder rates before and after gun bans?  Guess what?  The rates don’t plummet.  Ask the residents of Baltimore, DC, Detroit, Chicago and even the UK.

Some other interesting statistics.

Recently, we’ve all heard that both Obama and Hillary Clinton point to Australia with regard to outright gun confiscation — something they think might be a great idea for the United States despite that pesky and confounding Second Amendment.  They both fail to learn from history.  I call that Historical Alzheimers.

In Australia, it turned out that 640,381 personal firearms were destroyed by the government, costing taxpayers $500 million dollars.

That first year, homicides went up 3.2%.  Armed robberies went up 44%.  In Victoria, homicides utilizing firearms went up 300%.

But here’s the rub, Leftists.  Guess who failed to turn in their guns?  Why yes, morons, the criminals.  That’s their job.  Check the job description.  Then check the definition of the word “criminal.”

I know I should be, but I’m not yet a member of the NRA.  Looks like I’ll be joining this week.  And here’s another odd rub: gun sales the past few months have been skyrocketing.  More weapons in the hands of — gulp! — people who actually qualified for the purchase of their weapons.  Just like the shooter in Roseburg.  Every purchase was lawful and conformed to all regulations.  There’s only one final regulation left.  You know which one.  The ultimate regulation.  I’m sure the Australians were thinking the same thing: “it can’t happen here.”

Marcus Luttreall — the SEAL who wrote the book Lone Survivor, nails my feelings precisely.  I surrender my firearms to no one, man or beast.  And as an Oathkeeper, I have sworn to uphold the US Constitution and our Bill of Rights against all enemies, foreign or domestic.  No one said my oath stopped when I retired after 41 years in law enforcement.

As of last year, there was a 73% opposition to a ban on handguns.  63% of persons said that a home was safer with a firearm present in the home.

This is another Leftist move — and make no mistake, the ultimate wet dream of Leftists is gun confiscation.

I am The Realist.  And make no mistake, the reality is that the phrase “molon labe” has real meaning for me.

Another reason that this government and the UN are in the process of attempting to remove out First Amendment rights — our very right to communicate.  Communication that provides opposition to the defeatist, unsound, illusory, unrealistic, naive and just plain stupid goals of Leftists and this current administration.


Knife Surrender It

One armed school that does it right

Second Amendment School SignAs I wrote here, it is time for this blog to take a different tack into the wind.

It is time, in my estimation, to become more strident.  More insistive.  More raucous, grating, shrill.

Because it’s far past time to support what’s right, what’s proper, what’s logical, what’s cogent, what’s proportional, and consider what I call the Logical Extension.

And that’s why you need to know about the Garden Valley School in Idaho.

Because if you’re an armed intruder and aim to harm their kids, they’ll cap your ass.

Demorats, Leftists, Progressives and Obama want “more gun control.”  Despite the fact that all of the weapons involved in the Roseburg school shooting were acquired legally in every way.  So what other kinds or types of gun control can be acquired?

Any and all gun control proposals yet submitted would not have prevented the Roseburg shooting.

Except for two.  Only two.

  1. Guns on campus — eliminating “gun free zones,” and
  2. Complete and utter gun confiscation

What happens when Option One is considered?

And that is where we now check in with the the Garden Valley School in Idaho.

[There isn’t a whit of Constitutionality in the bulk of things that are proposed by Obama and Leftists and Demorats and Progressives.]

Further, this is every Leftist’s nightmare and can easily cause either spontaneous combustion or a cardiac infarction.  That a school should actually embrace firearms for defensive purposes.

From the

by Nicole Hensley

A school isolated by Idaho’s vast landscape has armed members of its faculty with four rifles and 2,000 rounds of ammo fearing a gun attack.

It’s the best security precautions Garden Valley School officials say they can offer 200 of its students in the case of an armed attack since first responders could be at least a half hour away, according to a local report.

Signs will warn dangerous intruders that the tiny elementary, middle and high school “is armed” and they will be met with force while awaiting the nearest law enforcement agency, the Boise County Sheriff’s Office, which is a 50-mile drive from the school and based in Boise.

Clearly, cause for PSH amongst Leftists.  Continuing, from the

Guns installed at isolated Garden Valley School District in effort to deter would-be attackers

by Jennifer Swindell

The isolated Garden Valley School District says it has taken steps to protect its K-12 school by training staff to use the guns in response to an active shooter.

Citing safety reasons, Superintendent Marc Gee won’t say how many guns and safes were installed or where they are located. This summer, the district will post signs warning that the school building has firearms and educators are prepared to defend against violent intruders.

“I can say that we consulted with our certified trainer and legal counsel on the number of and appropriate model of firearms for our situation and we followed those recommendations,” he said.

Garden Valley, a rural district about 60 miles north of Boise, doesn’t have a resource officer on campus. The county’s 11 deputies cover the Garden Valley, Horseshoe Bend and Basin school districts and nearly 2,000 square miles. Boise County has about 7,000 residents.

“Garden Valley is in a unique circumstance,” Boise County Sheriff Ben Roeber said. “Where they are located geographically, we don’t have the staffing size to where we can guarantee safety. The school, knowing they were facing response times of up to 45 minutes, started seeking out different ideas and different options.”

This is called “doing the obvious.”  This is called protecting kids.  This is called making a decision, taking a stand, and not letting unicorns and pink ponies make decisions that adults should be making.

This is called not letting politics get in the way between the safety of kids and a mentally unbalanced criminal.

Unlike Demorats, Leftists, Progressives.  Who couldn’t care less how many children die for their cause, just to prove a point.



Coverage and emphasis UP, not gun crime

Guns Just In CaseThe thing I find particularly frustrating about the ongoing gun control and Second Amendment argument involves the clear lack of facts in the discussion.  With 41 years of law enforcement experience I have seen crime at its peak and at its zenith.  At this point, crime in America peaked in 1991 — oddly enough, when I was a Detective in the Robbery Bureau.  It was nothing for me to carry a monthly caseload of 40 to 50 reports, and there were five other detectives in the unit with a similar caseload.

Since then, the gun homicide rate has gone down 49%.

Despite national attention to the issue of firearm violence, most Americans are unaware that gun crime is lower today than it was two decades ago. According to a new Pew Research Center survey, today 56% of Americans believe gun crime is higher than 20 years ago and only 12% think it is lower.

With that in mind, a brave criminologist dares to speak the truth.  From, of all places,

James Alan Fox: Umpqua shooting – a tragedy, not a trend

Another mass shooting sears deep into our collective consciousness, but it is hype and hysteria on the rise, not violence.

by James Alan Fox

Another mass shooting sears deep into the collective consciousness of the American people. Another school — this time a community college in an otherwise peaceful town in rural Oregon — is devastated by a young man taking aim at students trapped in classrooms. Nine are murdered, and many others wounded, before the gunman is killed in a shootout with the police.

Within a few hours, President Obama appeared before the camera, reinforcing the notion that America is under siege. “Somehow this has become routine,” noted Obama with obvious emotion. “The reporting is routine.”

Mr Fox writes with insight and truth:

Although the sense of urgency may be overstated, Obama is certainly correct about the almost formulaic media response. The Oregon shooting had countless news outlets flooding the airwaves and the Internet with questionable statistics on the incidence of mass shootings along with sidebar listings of the deadliest shooting sprees in U.S. history. In the usual rush to offer up some breaking information, news reports were embellished with unconfirmed details about the massacre and the assailant that did little but fuel a contagion of fear.

It is this PSH (Pants-Shitting Hysteria) — ginned up by Leftists — which has a distinct purpose.

Further adding to the state of alarm and confusion, headlines featured scary yet conflicting statistics from various sources. By reducing the standard threshold in defining a mass shooting (four or more killed by gunfire, not including the perpetrator), the incidence can reach incredible proportions. For example, the “Mass Shooting Tracker” website redefines a mass shooting as an incident in which at least four people (including the assailant) are shot, but not necessarily killed. By this criterion, there have been nearly 300 thus far this year.

Mr Fox nails the truth in his final paragraph.

According to a careful analysis of data on mass shootings (using the widely accepted definition of at least four killed), the Congressional Research Service found that there are, on average, just over 20 incidents annually. More important, the increase in cases, if there was one at all, is negligible. Indeed, the only genuine increase is in hype and hysteria.

With all that, why the Leftist emphasis on gun control?  To what point or end?  There is only one conclusion to draw.

In fact, the New York Daily News demands that the US State Department categorize the NRA as a terrorist organization:

On October 3–two days after a gunman killed 10 at the gun free facilities on the Umpqua Community College campus–the New York Daily News called for the U.S. State Department to designate the National Rifle Association (NRA) a “terrorist organization.”

They based this request on their belief that national security faces a greater threat from armed citizens than from “foreign terrorists,” and they singled out the NRA as the bulwark preserving citizens’ right to keep and bear arms. They suggested, “The NRA should take its rightful place on the State Department list of terrorist organizations, because its influence is more of an immediate threat to the lives of our citizens than foreign terrorists.”

Does that mean that blacks, no matter where they are in the US, are also part of a “terrorist organization”?  That would only be fair.  Because this past weekend in Chicago:

CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) – At least eight people have been wounded in shootings across the city since Friday night.

Simultaneously, again in Chicago, as Texas Fred so cogently points out:

Nearly 75 people reportedly overdosed on dangerous narcotics, possibly heroin laced with painkiller fentanyl, in Chicago over a three-day span, according to city health and fire officials.

Just one city.  Just one weekend.  No mention of this by the American Media Maggots.  No mention of this by our Racist In Chief.  There is only one conclusion to draw.

Of course, this is insanity writ large for that Leftist Dogma media outlet to .  For one, the NRA would have to be “state sponsored” to qualify.

No mention is made that the children, teachers, and students shot in schools were shot in gun free zones by gunmen who knew their victims could not return fire. Moreover, no utterance given to the fact that the NRA was a leading voice in calling for a change in the gun free policies following the heinous attack on Sandy Hook–they wanted laws changed so teachers could quit begging for their lives and start keeping a gun close at hand with which to defend their lives and the lives of their students.

Why no consideration for the obvious immediate solution?  There is only one conclusion to draw.  If the school shootings stop, the best leverage Democrats and the American Media Maggots have to pass gun control vanishes.  Poof.

Second Amendment School SignTherefore, students and teachers cannot be allowed to defend themselves.  Let the bodies hit the floor.  Because the mental defectives are still out there.

Whites (except this past shooter who was of a mixed-race, white/black, from the UK — who CNN is portraying as white) involved in shootings need to be classified as terrorists.  Blacks involved in a continuing series of non-stop killings of blacks in large Demorat-controlled cities are not.  They’re not mentioned.  It’s as if the fact that Chicago is having its deadliest murder month in over a decade — well, that just doesn’t exist.  Yes.  59 murders of blacks by blacks in one month.

I do not see Mr Obama or any Leftist or Demorat pointing fingers at blacks for shooting blacks, children and infants.  I don’t see any mention of this at all.

Then there is the issue of mental defectives.

Unfortunately, Reagan brought the issue of shutting down the bulk of mental hospitals in California to the forefront; he began diverting funding. The trend continued because Leftists believed each “sanitarium” was a cesspool of horror. The bottom line is that when you remove these institutions, the mentally defective live on the streets, commit crimes, and stay with their parents or isolate themselves, often refusing to take medications or remaining entirely unprescribed.

And here’s the nasty fact no one wants to address: left to themselves, absent firearms, they would resort to vehicles to kill others, clubs, rocks, knives, machetes, crossbows, garrotes, acids and the like. Because they are mentally defective.

Many of these people are only treated in jails and prisons because they have already offended. As there was little available for them on the street. And trust me, mental treatment in jail is barely plugging a huge hole in the hull. The ship is still sinking.

Some of these people will never be “brought back.” Some of these people are not even remotely treatable. But because we, societally, have determined that we won’t warehouse those who really shouldn’t walk the streets, they walk the streets. They live with their parents, with family members who may be afraid of them themselves.

The firearm is just a TOOL. Remove that one TOOL from the toolbelt of the mentally unhinged and defective, they will find ANOTHER tool to replace it of equal or higher offense.

But the issue becomes the tool, not the organic human being.

There is only one conclusion to draw.

Leftists, Obama and Demorats wish to completely disarm the citizens of the United States of America.

So what’s the next step?

An Obama Executive Order.  Gun control by fiat.
