Down the Slippery Slope
less than three years, the entire Commonwealth, the “British
Empire,” went from the lowest crime rate in the
world to the highest.
was this heinous travesty accomplished? By the inept legal
defensive firearms owners themselves.
the 1980s, the Home Secretary noted that subjects were obtaining
legal defensive firearms for the sinister purpose of protection
instead of the more reassuring “sporting” purposes.
the British Shooting Sports Council and the British
Association for Shooting and Conservation came down on the
“government’s” side, just as, to a large
degree, the U. S. NRA has consistently done.
Libertarian Sean Gabb sums it up neatly: “you all failed
to put the real case for [legal defensive firearms] - that
their possession for defense is a moral right and
duty, as well as a positive social good.”
evil social fascist Democrat Senator Dodd translated the
National Socialist Weapons Laws, introducing them to America
as the unconstitutional “reasonable” 1968 “Gun Control”
(Extremist Victim Disarmament) Act, the term “sporting
purpose” first made its menacing way into
the “government’s” lexicon, to be abused at every opportunity,
such as the insidious, unconstitutional 1994 ban on “non-sporting”

and loathes [legal defensive] firearms,
why anyone would find fascination in [legal
defensive] weapons, my answer is, 'For
the same reason that makes you afraid
of such things.'"
of reassuring our tormenters with comfy-sounding appeasements,
we should instead heed the advice of L. Neil Smith: “stand
on their feet, grab their lapels, and yell up their nostrils.”
the admirable words of Sir Winston Churchill "An
appeaser is someone who throws his children to the crocodile,
in hopes the Crocodile will eat him last! Never give in
-never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small,
large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor
and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the
apparently overwhelming might of the enemy. Victory at all
costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long
and hard the road may be; for without victory there is no

we currently find ourselves in this appaling predicament.
