Russia –-( These days, there are few few things to admire about the socialist, bankrupt and culturally degenerating USA, but at least so far, one thing remains: the right to bare arms and use deadly force to defend one’s self and possessions.

This will probably come as a total shock to most of my Western readers, but at one point, Russia was one of the most heavily armed societies on earth. This was, of course, when we were free under the Tsar. Weapons, from swords and spears to pistols, rifles and shotguns were everywhere, common items. People carried them concealed, they carried them holstered. Fighting knives were a prominent part of many traditional attires and those little tubes criss crossing on the costumes of Cossacks and various Caucasian peoples? Well those are bullet holders for rifles.

Various armies, such as the Poles, during the Смута (Times of Troubles), or Napoleon, or the Germans even as the Tsarist state collapsed under the weight of WW1 and Wall Street monies, found that holding Russian lands was much much harder than taking them and taking was no easy walk in the park but a blood bath all its own. In holding, one faced an extremely well armed and aggressive population Hell bent on exterminating or driving out the aggressor.

This well armed population was what allowed the various White factions to rise up, no matter how disorganized politically and militarily they were in 1918 and wage a savage civil war against the Reds. It should be noted that many of these armies were armed peasants, villagers, farmers and merchants, protecting their own. If it had not been for Washington’s clandestine support of and for the Reds, history would have gone quite differently.

Moscow fell, for example, not from a lack of weapons to defend it, but from the lieing guile of the Reds. Ten thousand Reds took Moscow and were opposed only by some few hundreds of officer cadets and their instructors. Even then the battle was fierce and losses high. However, in the city alone, at that time, lived over 30,000 military officers (both active and retired), all with their own issued weapons and ammunition, plus tens of thousands of other citizens who were armed. The Soviets promised to leave them all alone if they did not intervene.

They did not and for that were asked afterwards to come register themselves and their weapons: where they were promptly shot.

Of course being savages, murderers and liars does not mean being stupid and the Reds learned from their Civil War experience. One of the first things they did was to disarm the population. From that point, mass repression, mass arrests, mass deportations, mass murder, mass starvation were all a safe game for the powers that were. The worst they had to fear was a pitchfork in the guts or a knife in the back or the occasional hunting rifle. Not much for soldiers.

To this day, with the Soviet Union now dead 21 years, with a whole generation born and raised to adulthood without the SU, we are still denied our basic and traditional rights to self defense. Why? We are told that everyone would just start shooting each other and crime would be everywhere….but criminals are still armed and still murdering and to often, especially in the far regions, those criminals wear the uniforms of the police. The fact that everyone would start shooting is also laughable when statistics are examined.

While President Putin pushes through reforms, the local authorities, especially in our vast hinterland, do not feel they need to act like they work for the people. They do as they please, a tyrannical class who knows they have absolutely nothing to fear from a relatively unarmed population. This in turn breeds not respect but absolute contempt and often enough, criminal abuse.

For those of us fighting for our traditional rights, the USA’s “2nd Amendment” is a rare light in an ever darkening room. Governments will use the excuse of trying to protect the people from maniacs and crime, but are in reality, it is the bureaucrats protecting their power and position. In all cases where guns are banned, gun crime continues and often increases. As for maniacs, be it nuts with cars (NYC, Chapel Hill NC), swords (Japan), knives (China) or home made bombs (everywhere), insane people strike. They throw acid (Pakistan, UK), they throw fire bombs (France), they attack. What is worse, is, that the best way to stop a maniac is not psychology or jail or “talking to them”, it is a bullet in the head, that is why they are a maniac, because they are incapable of living in reality or stopping themselves.

The excuse that people will start shooting each other is also plain and silly. So it is our politicians saying that our society is full of incapable adolescents who can never be trusted? Then, please explain how we can trust them or the police, who themselves grew up and came from the same culture?

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.

So, Americans listen up, do not fall for the false promises and do not extinguish the light that is left to allow humanity a measure of self respect.

There is a thing that effects most people called 'normalcy bias',a survival mechanism our brains are equipped with that can place us in grave danger when we’re faced with something traumatic. Simply put, it causes our brains to insist that all is okay. Everything will return to normal. For most of us who have never faced true peril, Normalcy Bias tells us that nothing bad will ever happen. “This is America!,” most people insist, that can't happen here! We've already seen that this govt has no trouble sending thousands of "assault weapons" to Mexican drug cartels, knowing full well that… Read more »


Very good article.Would like to hear more.Would like to know more on storage of questionable weapons.


Mike if by storage you mean hiding them, just when is it you plan to make a stand if not at your door?

We Veterans did take an oath and swore to defend the Constitution and America and we did since 1776. Congressional members also have taken that oath an swore the same allegiances. Some how the left liberal anti-gun zealots in that bunch, Feinstein, Boxer, Reid, Baldwin and the other traitors, have forgotten and now totally ignore their sacred oath and honorable sworn testimony to protect the Constitution and America. They all are doing the opposite and have taken a traitoristic Anti-American, Anti-Freedom agenda and they are determined and out to destroy America and change it to a Dictatorship with Obama and… Read more »


Obama is a puppet to the nwo and not his own man….

Better Red Than Dead

Your congressmen are all set to betray you. obama is coming after all the guns no matter what. The communist agenda demands that you will be disarmed. The only way to save the nation will be armed revolution. Your congressmen know that. They also know that revolution will destroy the infrastructure and order of this country; the very thing things that keep them in power. They will not trade their positions for your freedom. You will see only token resistance form your elected officials, and obama will come for your guns. The only chance you have is to fight, and… Read more »


Everyone needs to email your congressmen and tell them how you feel. They don't read this and they don't read comments on gun crime articles on the internet. The people making these comments after these articles are at least 98% pro-gun. But it does no good if no one in government is reading it and they don't know that all their jobs are on the line if they support these gun grabbers. Of course if they can get all our guns before 2014 they don't have to worry. From what the politicians are hearing from the media, everyone is on… Read more »

It has never been more important. Purchase a copy of Innocents Betrayed from Jews for the Presevation of Firearms Ownership. Get a copy for everyone you know and anyone who can't understand the danger of gun control.

We know what time it is!

Spread the Word Make Loud Sensible Noise!

We Can and Will Stop This!

Preaching to the choir must be expanded to the masses.

Simple precise logic, pose questions we need to get the unaware thinking.

Planting the seeds of liberty is work worth doing.

Some will think you are crazy, to those look them straight in the eyes;

" May your chains rest lightly upon you! "


I have no Idea at this Point what is going to wake the American People up to the Reality that their Government IS NOT their Friend!! I guess when they see their Daughters and Wives Gang Raped and Murdered, and their Bodies dragged through the Streets, or their Husbands tortured and Murdered and THEIR Bodies Dragged through the Streets!! Maybe then they will wake up!! Don't live under the Illusion that just because you live in AMERICA, it can't Happen!! Because that is what all People think right before it begins!! That's what the Government has taught you to believe!!… Read more »


Once the goverment disarms it's citizens they systemamatically take All your Rights Away////?Then you are controled by your Goverment can Jail Kill Strave you are Enslaved and Owned by the Oppresive Goverment Suppose to Protect and Serve us!


I served in Somalia 1992-1993. In Vietnam 1968-1969. In El Salvador 1985-1987. In every one of those shit holes the only people who were raped, murdered, starved and abused were the people WITHOUT guns. Can't happen here? Bet yours and your families lives on that? Better wake up people.


Oh,, and where all all those service members who have sworn an oath to protect us and the country from threats foreign and domestic?


I know my history. If I give up my guns they are going to kill me during the next phase of their plan to remake the country.

Like I said, I know my history, and if I'm going down I'm going down fighting.

"This is one effort and other things we should do to try to put weapons under some kind of appropriate authority." -U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), on "FOX News Sunday With Chris Wallace" yesterday regarding her proposed legislation for a new "assault weapons" ban


Bob W. I think you are right. My brother and I were talking about this. He and I have concluded that if the "government" called for everyone to turn in their guns, 90 plus percent of legal gun owners would turn them in. Plus they already have agreements with NATO and even RUSSIA, to use foreign troops to quell any type of rebellion if called upon. US troops are iffy when it comes to disarming and killing US people. Foreign troops will have no problem killing us. Plus after the call goes out to turn them in, the 3 o… Read more »

Unfortunately, I think it is too late. Most Americans are too passive, even those with guns. I see too many editorials in the newspapers from some gun owners and hunters who are going along with all the hysteria by the left and are willing to give up their ARs and semi-automatic guns. The other issue is that the local police are already so heavily armed it would be hard to defeat them if the SHTF. And, it would not surprise me if the government brought in the Natl. Guard and the military if the people rose up in arms. Don't… Read more »
