Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- A Tale of Two Cities:
In Belgium, they’re at least starting to “get it.” In the UK, they apparently never will!
On Friday, a single, machete-wielding, “AA” ( allahu akbar) -shouting, Islamic terrorist was shot to death by armed soldiers in Brussels.
The terrorist attacked a group of soldiers on a Brussels street. The armed and trained soldiers did not hesitate with their lethal response!
Terrorist was DRT (dead right there). At least one soldier was slightly injured.
The following Saturday, yet another a sword-swinging, “AA” -shouting, Islamic terrorist, this one in London (right outside Buckingham Palace) was also confronted by uniformed police.
But, this is the UK, so even police guarding the royal residence (no one was home at the time) are unarmed!
The terrorist drove his car at the officers, then tried to exit with a four-foot sword. Officers responded, not with gunfire, but instead used “CS gas.”
Suspect was eventually subdued and arrested. Three officers were injured.
Since no one died (save a single terrorist), neither incident garnered much attention from the Western press.
Isn’t it downright amazing the way guns, in the hands of trained LE/Military personnel (trained non-LE citizens too), favorably resolve-with awesome finality- threats posed by “AA”- shouting Islamic nut-jobs. It’s now nearly a daily phenomenon!
And, not a single terrorist who has been shot to death by police, soldiers, or armed citizens, has ever committed another crime. Can you name another “rehabilitation system” with a success record like that?
Aren’t these the same guns that are self-righteously derided, despised, denigrated, and loathed by teeth-gnashing liberals worldwide?
Yet, aren’t these the identical guns carried by protective details who guard these same teeth-gnashing liberals (when they become politicians)?”
The scent of hypocrisy is in the air!
The point is:
Guns work! They work in situations when nothing less will do, not Tasers, not batons, not CS, not OC, not martial arts, not sharply-pressed uniforms, nor clever-sounding movie-lines.
Who “go armed” know this!
“There is a feeling of personal dignity and independence in grasping, literally, the power to back, with lethal force, your refusal to be a target of violent crime.
This is not a ‘sense of power.’ It is the experience of escaping from a sense of powerlessness.” ~ John Longenecker
