Efforts to disarm the American public have been under way for decades. Citing public safety concerns over gun violence, members of congress, the media and special interests have made some inroads curtailing the possession of firearms by ordinary citizens. Other developments, most notably the recent Supreme Court decision in Heller v. District of Columbia, have withstood the attack of liberal encroachment and have reinforced the right for law biding citizens to bear arms.
Look at the antique firearms in the picture above. They were state-of-the-art weapons when the most powerful army in the world was defeated by relatively few professional soldiers and tens of thousands of farmers only 230 years ago. Bear this in mind, artillery is the King of Battle but Infantry is still Queen. A determined man with a rifle can take and hold land with devastating effect.
Recent developments in England have revealed that a disarmed citizenry is not only helpless against government excesses, but is also at a great disadvantage from mass thuggery. In a headline from the UK Daily Mail
For a mob, the perceived threat of harm is just as effective as actually being harmed. And if you think that the British riots cannot happen here, you are sadly mistaken. There are mini-riots that take place in American cities that you rarely ever hear about. Philadelphia is experiencing flash mob riots as are other cities where the motive is pure theft. If American handouts to the "poor" cannot be maintained at a level that satisfies them, be prepared for violence on a scale that may exceed England's current misery.
Years of liberal dogma have spawned a generation of amoral, uneducated, welfare dependent, brutalised youngsters
A few weeks after the U.S. city of Detroit was ravaged by 1967 race riots in which 43 people died, I was shown around the wrecked areas by a black reporter named Joe Strickland.
He said: ‘Don’t you believe all that stuff people here are giving media folk about how sorry they are about what happened. When they talk to each other, they say: “It was a great fire, man!” ’
I am sure that is what many of the young rioters, black and white, who have burned and looted in England through the past few shocking nights think today.
It was fun. It made life interesting. It got people to notice them. As a girl looter told a BBC reporter, it showed ‘the rich’ and the police that ‘we can do what we like’.
And with that in mind, be prepared to defend yourself with the thoughtful provision of a firearm made possible by our Founding Fathers. The liberals will cry and moan about this but all they have good intentions and an empty promise from police officials that they will control the streets. Good luck with that.
