The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“One of the arguments that had been made against gun control was that an armed citizenry was the final bulwark against tyranny. My response had been that untrained, lightly-armed non-soldiers couldn’t prevail against a modern army. I had concluded that the qualitative difference in firepower was such that all of the previous rules of guerilla war no longer applied. Both Vietnam and Afghanistan demonstrated that wasn’t true. Repelling an armed invasion is not something that American citizens are likely to face, but the possibility of a despotic government coming to power is not wholly unthinkable. One of the sequellae of Vietnam was the rise of the Khmer Rouge and slaughter of perhaps a million Cambodian citizens. Those citizens, like the Jews in Germany or the Armenians in Turkey, were unarmed and thus utterly and completely defenseless against police and paramilitary. An armed minority was able to kill and terrorize unarmed victims with total impunity.” – Paul Hagar, “Why I Carry”

    America will be invaded. Fortunately for us it isn’t likely to happen anytime soon as most other militaries don’t focus on logistics. The Chinese have however begun.

    I have often said, imagine if every Jew in Germany in the 30’s had owned a gun.

    America and Europe have already been invaded by Islamic civilian armies! The “Trojan” horses are all around us and every facet of our society. Islam is at war with Christians everywhere!
