Last week, I addressed Communist Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) and his lies and propaganda to advance his gun confiscation agenda following the Florida school shooting. In that piece, I listed several school shootings that occurred all over the world to demonstrate that he was lying through his teeth about school or mass shootings occurring only in the US.
Among those, the top seven shootings occurred outside the US. Included in those shootings was a shooting that occurred in 2004, in which 334 were killed and 783 were injured.
Where did this travesty take place? Beslan, North Ossetia-Alania in Russia.
Before we recount what happened there, let us consider the likes of the face of the children’s movement to attack the Second Amendment, gun owners, and the Constitution, David Hogg, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel and even President Donald Trump as they all seem to be joining hands and singing Kumbaya to implement more gun confiscation efforts.
They really don’t know what they are asking for because if they did, they would look to Russia, which don’t protect God-given rights like keeping and bearing arms.
In fact, according to GunPolicy.org, here are the various gun laws that apply there:
- The regulation of guns in Russia is categorised as restrictive
- In Russia, the right to private gun ownership is not guaranteed by law
- In Russia, civilians are not allowed to possess automatic firearms and handguns
- In Russia, only licensed gun owners may lawfully acquire, possess or transfer a firearm or ammunition
- Applicants for a gun owner’s licence in Russia are required to establish a genuine reason to possess a firearm, for example hunting, target shooting, collection, personal protection, security
- An applicant for a firearm licence in Russia must pass a background check which considers criminal, mental health, and medical records
- In Russia, an understanding of firearm safety and the law, tested in a theoretical and/or practical training course is required for a firearm licence
- In Russia, gun owners must re-apply and re-qualify for their firearm licence every five years
- In Russia, the law requires that a record of the acquisition, possession and transfer of each privately held firearm be retained in an official register
- Firearm regulations in Russia include written specifications for the lawful safe storage of private firearms and ammunition by licensed gun owners
- In Russia, carrying a firearm in plain view in a public place is prohibited, with some exceptions [hunters, security guards, sport shooters]
- In Russia, carrying a concealed firearm in a public place is prohibited, with some exceptions
And what was the result of all those restrictions on the freedoms of the Russian people and more specifically those killed and injured in the Beslan school siege?
“The Beslan school siege (also referred to as the Beslan school hostage crisis or Beslan massacre started on 1 September 2004, lasted three days, involved the illegal imprisonment of over 1,100 people as hostages (including 777 children), and ended with the deaths of at least 334 people. The crisis began when a group of armed Islamic militants, mostly Ingush and Chechen, occupied School Number One (SNO) in the town of Beslan, North Ossetia (an autonomous republic in the North Caucasus region of the Russian Federation) on 1 September 2004. The hostage-takers were the Riyadus-Salikhin Battalion, sent by the Chechen warlord Shamil Basayev, who demanded recognition of the independence of Chechnya, and Russian withdrawal from Chechnya. On the third day of the standoff, Russian security forces stormed the building with the use of tanks, incendiary rockets and other heavy weapons. As of December 2006, 334 people (excluding terrorists) were killed, including 186 children.”
You see, the more restrictions you put on law abiding citizens, the more you give the advantage to criminals. Why? Because criminals don’t care for the law.
None of these laws stopped Islamic jihadis, who account for the majority of mass shootings two out of the last three years in the US, from obtaining weapons. Those laws did prevent teachers, staff and others from being armed against them.
Stop, and think about that for just a moment. Don’t get emotional. Stay calm, and pass this on to Senator Murphy, David Hogg, President Trump and all the willing accomplices in the media and the children clamoring for more gun confiscation efforts.
