Disarmament, the Embarrassing Truth!

Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- Since the fatal attack outside the British Parliament two weeks ago, visibly armed police are now posted at every entrance. An embarrassingly quiet “policy change” that came too late for Keith Palmer!

The real reason Officer Keith Palmer, unarmed at the time, was murdered by a knife-wielding Islamic terrorist?

A Parliament spokesman sheepishly admitted: “We thought guns would ruin tourist photos!”

I wish I were surprised!

In 1917, during the the Bolshevik Revolution, the entire Russian Royal Family was abducted, and ultimately murdered, by Communists. It was all done in secret, a Communist MO, but the truth eventually leaked out. In fact, Czar Nicolas had previously pleaded with the British king (the two royal families were inter-married) for safe passage for him and his family to, and refuge in, England. He was turned down, insuring his eventual murder, and a noted above, the murder of his entire family.

When these murders were confirmed and became widely known, it frightened the snot out of every royal family in Europe, including England, who had visions of the same thing happening to them!

That was the beginning of the “gun control” movement in Europe, and particularly in the UK.

When hoards of peons “stormed the castle with torches and pitchforks,” royalty wanted to be sure they were all confined to torches and pitchforks, while the “royal guard” had pistols, rifles, and machine guns!

Indeed, Czar Nicolas himself had surely demonstrated the effectiveness of that particular arms imbalance in St Petersburg in 1905!

Now, a century later, British politicians, after arrogantly bragging about their unarmed police for decades, are having to admit (in practice, if not in words) that they have been wrong all this time, and Officer Palmer, along with countless others, have paid the ultimate price for their smug vanity.

Yes, it appears now that tourists will be taking lots of photos of British police who are visibly armed!

I’m sure that upsets many snobbish, and comfortable, politicians. However, those same politicians will be receiving scant sympathy for Palmer’s family, and from families of so many other police and soldiers (not to mention civilians), who have been murdered while unarmed.

When self-proclaimed members of the “ruling class” demonstrably care so little about their own police, one can only wonder how much they care about us “peons!”

I feel most at ease when at the rifle or pistol range. The people have all been very polite and comforting, easy to meet and want to share ideas. Along with my fly fishing club (Trout Unlimited) these groups are wonderful. Life is good here on the Western Slope of Colorado. Now if we could just replace those Liberals on the East Slope….

OK, so a very small minority of their coppers can now be armed, some places and some times. But what about the REST of the folk? Are they merely second class entities whose lives are insignficant? We need a new motto: BLM. Yes, BRITISH Lives Matter. Remember back when the mozzie hordes were running loose like a bunch of hooligans, beating, destroying, stealing? The common folk could not be armed, per stupid laws, so they started buying bats by the thousands… Wat did their overlords DO? They prohibited the sale of bats, that’s what they did. And we find shortly… Read more »

Anyone remember the first thing said at the EU congress the next day? “We need more gun control”. Sound familiar? Stupid is as stupid does, and ya can’t fix stupid.,

He used a car and a knife, but the fools are still calling for more gun control.

Back in 1941 the Japanese High Command wanted to attack the continental US instead of Hawaii. Admiral Yamamoto convinced them not to attempt that as there was a “rifle behind every blade of grass” so they attacked the Pacific Fleet instead. He did this because he spent so many years here, being educated here and spending more time here as the Naval Attaché of Japan. Think about it for just a second. Maybe the reason ISSIS hasn’t attacked here in numbers as in Europe is because we just happen to have so many more weapons? Just a thought, y’all.

The Britts have thrown off the yoke of the European Union, and are much the better for it. It is now time for them to take a lesson from the good ol’ United States and discover that the ownership of firearms by the public makes the whole country safer…….but don’t expect too much. There are still a lot of liberals in this country that don’t understand the obvious.

They call us proles, not peons. There was an incident a fewa few years back when cabinet adviser in England was stopped by Police near a government facility and because the adviser was being inconvenienced he started throwing out the the prole word to bluff his way out of the situation.

One of the times when I felt safest was when my wife and I were at the Grand Hotel in Tunica, Ms back in the first few years of this century. The reason why? Most of the other 300 some IDPA Nationals competitors were also staying there. I would have pitied the fool who did something stupid with us around.
