From Pravda. Yes, Pravda:
No it is about power and a total power over the people. There is a lot of desire to bad mouth the Tsar, particularly by the Communists, who claim he was a tyrant, and yet under him we were armed and under the progressives disarmed. 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.
“Back of the ear” means executed. They are 100% right on this. The gun controllers aren’t concerned with crime, not even defending students at schools. If they were interested in such things they would support arming teachers or, at least, having armed police stationed in the schools. Instead they push for more “gun-free” zones whre killers can be reasonable sure that they have unarmed victims.
The Russians (at least some of them) get how precious and vital the right to be armed is. They lost their right to be armed under the Communists, and brutal oppression followed. We would do well to learn from their history.
