Americans, never give up your guns

Americans, never give up your guns by Stanislav Mishin in Pravda
http://www.pravdareport.com/opinion/123 ... cans_guns/

Money quote:
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.
The left lies about everything. Truth is a liberal value, and truth is a conservative value, but it has never been a left-wing value. People on the left say whatever advances their immediate agenda. Power is their moral lodestar; therefore, truth is always subservient to it. - Dennis Prager

While this article is pretty recent, this truth ("pravda" means "truth" in Russian) has been around for decades. The commies came to power in mid 1900s, promising great future and disarming the public. What came next was no shocker.
Any oppressive regime that plans on subduing its "democratic voters" first disarms the public, it is utterly logical. If the history has taught us anything, it's that Nazis and Commies weren't much different, although coming from the opposite sides of the political spectrum.
And you know what they say: "history repeats itself". And as dumb as our humankind is, I don't expect an exactly bright future.

Too late you have been a list for a long time.
Gun control is like stopping drunk driving by making it harder for sober people to drive.

Gun Control is never about the guns and always about Control!
You cannot Subjugate an armed populace!
Government, like fire is a dangerous servant and a fearful master
If you ain't paranoid you ain't paying attention

Look at the original date on the article. 2012. :shock: I posted somewhere at that time that 'hades must have just frozen over, because I actually agree with something in Pravada'. :biggrinjester:
