This one came over the transom from the mil email string from the Sergeant Major…
From a friend in the UK:
“Gunfire in London is no longer uncommon, even though guns are technically ‘illegal’ here!
Knife attacks are also a plague, and ever associated with deadly gang warfare. Most gangs here are composed of immigrants, almost all illegal, and they’re constantly engaged in lethal territorial disputes.
As a result, London’s rate of violent crime is soaring, now exceeding even NYC’s (where there are at least a few legal guns)!
Guns of all types (all illegal of course) are streaming into our country, by the boatload, on any navigable waterway, and believe it or not, right through the capital’s main waterway, the Thames!
Most are smuggled-in from the Mideast.
As in The States, illegal migrants also come unhindered across our porous (water) borders, which we will not protect as a matter of public policy.
When our cops ‘stop-and-search,’ they’re automatically accused of ‘racism,’ even when they unfailingly find these illegal immigrants laden with guns and other weapons.
In the interim, our frightened citizenry remains disarmed and defenseless.
London’s Islamic mayor now wants to ban even kitchen knives!
I live in a country populated with VBCs (Victims, by Choice) who (by law) have no means of protecting themselves and thus daily live in morbid fear of armed and violent criminals, about whom our government does virtually nothing.
We anxiously cower behind locked doors, afraid to go out.
We’ve been robbed of our personal well-being, our heritage, peace, but most of all, we’ve been robbed of dignity!
More correctly, we’ve traded our dignity for a pitiable handout and the myth of ‘safety,’ which as noted above, is a lie!
Who value their health are well-advised not to come here.
Defend your Second Amendment, or you’ll be like us!”
Comment: “Learned helplessness,” a critical axiom of leftist politics, invariably leads to the above-described nauseating personal and national degradation.
The spread of liberal/leftist philosophy relies completely on people being blind to history.
The individual possession and bearing of arms imparts to every citizen a sense of personal worth and dignity, an air of self-respect and responsibility, impossible to bring-about any other way.
It’s turning into a real cluster over there, as other friends have pointed out. And you know it is getting bad when the Bobbies are routinely carrying weapons!!!
