The Very Biggest "Gun Free Zone" Thus Far...
There are 158 dead as this is written. 158 dead in the City of Lights, Paris, France. Six different locations, including a theater, a cafe and a soccer stadium. An unknown number of murdering Islamic Fascist Jihadist killers attacked innocent theater goers, soccer fans and just plain folks out for a night on the town. They used AK-47's, grenades and suicide vests to kill as many as possible, as they shouted "Aluhu Akhbar," or "God is Great." The Religion of Peace has struck again.
Notice that this did not occur in Dallas, or Miami, or Oklahoma City, or Wichita, or Nashville. All of these cities in which there would have been a significant number of concealed carriers, guns at the ready, to smoke these damned bastards before they could have taken nearly as many as they did. Just as soon as these animals had started, their miserable lives would have been snuffed out by someone, anyone with a concealed weapon. And their numbers are now legion. One in twenty in Florida, for example, have a concealed carry permit. And, as my famous quote will attest, if only 5% of the ducks were armed, do you think anyone would go duck hunting?
But Europe has been disarmed. France, Germany, Spain, Luxembourg, England. All disarmed. They've had their figurative pockets picked of the means to protect themselves. In France, as an example, it is illegal for a private citizen to own a handgun or a military style weapon. Just as Barry and his Sycophants are trying to do to America, the good people of Europe have had their guns taken from them. And they've thus been relegated to a bunch of "sheeple." They are completely defenseless. And those who are attempting to do this to us should be ashamed. If they had any shame, that is.
What is there about our leaders that makes them want to take away our ability to defend ourselves, or the Lefties they lead acquiescent with being rendered completely defenseless?
I'm pissed, my friends! This is completely unacceptable! Paris, perhaps the most beautiful city on Earth, is nothing but a "target rich environment." Jihadist Muslims just took their time, slaughtering innocents, one at a time, reloading again and again, over a period of at least two hours. We don't know how many of them there were...or are. But we do know that our open societies are ripe pickings for them. They can strike anytime, and anywhere. And we are defenseless. And that sucks, my friends. But I can tell you this: Those states, and cities, where adults are in charge, won't permit this to happen. Those states and cities where they can read English, and thus understand the 27 little words in the 2nd Amendment, won't permit this to happen. Those states and cities, where they value human life and believe that people should have the means to protect themselves, won't permit this to happen. In other locations, good Americans will be nothing but targets. And that sucks, my friends.
Paris, France, was a war zone tonight. And Paris is on lock down for the first time since the end of World War Two. The Eiffel Tower is dark, for the first time since 1944. And we still don't know how many of them there were, or where they are, or if we got them all. But we do know this:
Paris is the very biggest "Gun Free Zone" thus far. But I fear it won't be the biggest for long. And I ask, what are we finally going to do about it? As a U. S. Congressman friend of mine recently opined, when asked how he would prepare for the coming conflagration, "Start stockpiling canned goods and ammunition," he said. "You'll soon need them both."
