How gun control is causing another European Holocaust

When Adolph Hitler got into power, he confiscated all the guns owned by Jewish people.  Then, once they were defenseless, he sent them all to concentration camps.  Now, in 2015, Jews are being slaughtered again because of their religion.  And because of strict gun control laws in Europe, they are once again defenseless.

Here in Denmark, handguns and semiautomatic rifles are all but banned. Hunting rifles are legally available only to those with squeaky-clean backgrounds who have passed a rigorous exam covering everything from gun safety to the mating habits of Denmark’s wildlife.

“There’s a book about 1,000 pages thick,” said Tonni Rigby, one of only two licensed firearms dealers in Copenhagen. “You have to know all of it.”

But if you want an illicit assault rifle, “You can find Kalashnikovs for sale near the train station in Brussels,” acknowledged a Brussels-based European Union official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on the record. “They’re available even to very average criminals.”

Beginning with attacks in the French city of Toulouse in 2012 that left seven people dead, guns have also become the weapon of choice for Islamist terrorists in Europe. In Paris and Copenhagen, the targets were the same: cartoonists, police officers and Jews.

Hussein, who first attacked a cafe and then struck at a synagogue, had a much wider selection to choose from. His primary weapon — an M95 assault rifle that can fire up to 900 rounds a minute — was stolen from the home of a member of the Danish Home Guard in 2013, police say. Hussein probably purchased it illegally, along with two semiautomatic handguns.

Even with the high-profile gun attacks of recent weeks, there’s been no major push in Denmark or elsewhere in Europe to loosen the gun laws. While American firearms advocates preach the necessity of self-defense, the argument holds little sway...

It is very much like the 1930s for Jews in Europe: Jewish businesses smashed, synagogues attacked, Jews killed for being Jewish.  The main difference is that instead of Nazi gangs doing the killing, it is radical Muslims.  Jews are no longer safe in Europe.

They should move to the U.S., Canada, Australia, or Israel.  But if they must stay, they should at least get weapons so they have a chance of defending themselves.

Why should this concern you?  Because if you're living in America, you're next.  President Obama has imported three hundred thousand Iraqi "refugees" and is in the process of importing thousands more Syrian ones.  Most of the refugees are Muslim, and if they are typical of the Muslims of the region, a substantial minority are followers of radical Islam.  As we get more and more of them, America will become less and less safe.

Why do you think Al Shabaab, the Somali radical Muslim terrorist group, made a threat specifically against the Mall of America?  Because Minneapolis, thanks to the policies of George W. Bush, settled thousands of Somali Muslims there, and, as with most groups of Muslims from backwards countries, there's a substantial minority who hate our freedoms and want to kill us.

Now consider how the government is trying to enact more and more gun control.  When you look at the two trends together – increased gun control and a larger and larger population of hostile Muslims – you can see why we're only a few years behind Europe.  That's why we always need to be vigilant and protect against the chipping away of our vital Second Amendment rights to be able to defend ourselves, and support pending legislation allowing guns on places like college campuses, to prevent massacres from happening here, too.
