A Protected, Sane And Civilized Society Is An Armed One

As Obama insidiously continues to angle for more gun control it's worth bringing what the Secretary General of Interpol said:
"Ask yourself: If that was Denver, Col., if that was Texas, would those guys have been able to spend hours, days, shooting people randomly?" Noble said, referring to states with pro-gun traditions. "What I'm saying is it makes police around the world question their views on gun control. It makes citizens question their views on gun control. You have to ask yourself, 'Is an armed citizenry more necessary now than it was in the past with an evolving threat of terrorism?' This is something that has to be discussed."
"For me it's a profound question," he continued. "People are quick to say 'gun control, people shouldn't be armed,' etc., etc. I think they have to ask themselves: 'Where would you have wanted to be? In a city where there was gun control and no citizens armed if you're in a Westgate mall, or in a place like Denver or Texas?'"

Recall the Detroit police chief (and Minneapolis as noted in the article) suggested people be armed as well. 

Reality is going to get the better of the gun-control side sooner or later. As attacks become more sophisticated and unpredictable, law enforcement may indeed call for an armed citizenry. It will prove to be too costly for already stretched police forces to protect people.

And this alliance will be a good one.


About the Second Amendment. This nonsense about repealing it doesn't get settled once and for all.

The amendment was written precisely as intended - shall not be infringed. Had it not, I think the Founding Fathers would have written it differently. The argument it was a 'different time' and was for a 'militia' as if there was some sort of nuanced meaning to it is rubbish and has run its course. It's vapid cocktail conversation for progressives; naturals at misinterpreting history.

There's no need to over think what they meant. Notably, they understood a well-armed citizenry was necessary should the system they set up fail and the government turns to tyranny. They understood all too well the lessons of history.

Guess what? Sensible minds get it too and we're seeing more and more people in positions of power speak out.

And this is the cold, hard sober fact.
