This is why gun ownership remains a political controversy

All other concerns — hunting, sport, even self-defense — are secondary considerations to people who do not wish to be ruled…and to the fiends whose self-worth depends on ruling others.

    This is the kind of thing that horrifies statists.


  2. Sam Damewood says:

    The one item that 99% of RKBA folks won’t mention and that absolutely scares the crap out of government of any breed.

    The more they fear me, the happier I am.

  3. LarryArnold says:

    I’m finding the opposite reaction. For some reason the “for opposing tyrannical rule” argument is a lot more popular than it was a couple of months ago.

    where is the quote from?

    • Oleg Volk says:

      From me.

    • Lyle says:

      I try to answer questions as asked, in respect for the intelligence and awareness of the asker. He said “where”, not “who”, so the answer is “Planet Earth”. If you want to be more specific, maybe it’s Tennessee.

      • Grog says:

        You’re telling Oleg how to answer questions?

        I’m not replying for him, he doesn’t need my assistance with that, however, your response is rather arrogant considering the topic of the post.

    A good rifle and A WILLINGNESS TO USE IT confer sovereignty. Simple ownership will do nothing. ” If every Jew in Hitler’s Germany had a firearm AND THE WILLINGNESS TO USE IT. Hitler would be a footnote in a history book”. If you want to be free of tyrants great and small. You have to be willing to shoot them.

    • Oleg Volk says:

      Ultimately, yes. But mere gun ownership has an effect as well, as the would-be dominators have no idea who would be willing to shoot them, or when and where. So a thousand recreational gun owners are the school of fish in which a dozen Henry Bowmans may hide.

        12/1000 now, but as things become more obvious, 120/1000, with the 880 providing significant support to and beyond the level of pain. It takes 8 at home to field one combatant, even when the shooter lives within walking distance and is a part-time volunteer.

    Free People are armed.
    Armed People are free.
    The only weapon system that can take and hold ground is the Waffenmensch (I think this is easy to figure out.) Freiheit uber Alles!

    • DAN III says:


      “Armed people are free.”

      Really ?

      Don’t pay your property tax and/or .gov school taxes. Free men OWNED property. Today you only rent it from the scum I call “government”.

  7. Paul Franklin says:

    Willingness to use a weapon is not enough you must be proficient in that weapons use is important…..

    If elections are cancelled, I still get to vote with my rifle.

    “Individually, we do not bear arms because we are afraid. We bear arms
    as a declaration of capacity. An armed man can cope – either in the city
    or in the wilderness – and because he is armed, he is not afraid.

    “If every Jew in Hitler’s Germany had a firearm AND THE WILLINGNESS TO USE IT…”

    Researchers have indicated that there were over 150,000 Jews in the Wehrmacht, including the SS. I believe they had firearms, and I suspect, had a great “rifle” and a great “willingness” to use it. Now that’s a real dichotomy, huh?

    • Oleg Volk says:

      And I suspect such people were safer from their own government than the average disarmed civilian.

      • European American says:

        Your point is well taken, however, if one is a ‘Jewish’ Senior Officer In Hitler’s Army, e.g. Erhard Milch, Wilhelm Keitel, Walther von Brauchitsch, Erich Raeder, and Maximilian von Weichs, then you ARE the government…who would one fear then?
        Contrary to the “programming” we in America were indoctrinated with, Hitler was not the evil dictator that the Cartel would want us to believe. There were men from all nationalities, volunteering because they knew who the real enemy was…Moscow…Stalin…Bolsheviks.
        They didn’t volunteer to feel safer from the German Government, they volunteered to defeat the real danger at the time. The same danger that has infected the USSA over the last 20, 30, 40, 100 years, and has peaked during the Obama reign. Trump will turn things around, finally, if he survives.

          As another European American, I will treat the preceding note with the contempt it so obviously deserves.
