Steven Crowder: First Time Gun Buyer and Gun Laws
Half a million lives saved a year by defensive use of a firearm
The 2nd Amendment in the United States guarantees the right to bear arms. The founding fathers of the American Constitution realized as long as people have guns it reduces governments from persecuting their people and moving towards a dictatorship. The sad fact is that gradual dictatorship is taking over America however there is a growing awareness of this and citizens are now actively fighting to keep their rights and their guns.
It is recommended that every person, and especially Europeans, learn how to use and own guns preferably from a young age, and make sure that you purchase standard guns and plenty of ammunition in case changes are made quickly disallowing individuals from ownership. We recommend you consider joining a gun club and here is a list of ones we recommend.
NRA-ILA’s ability to fight successfully for the rights of America’s law-abiding gun owners directly reflects the support of NRA’s, nearly 5 million members—a number that has more than tripled since 1978. When restrictive “gun control” legislation is proposed at local, state or federal level, the NRA members and supporters are alerted and respond to individual letters, faxes, e-mails, and calls to their elected representatives to make their views known.
This organization is a gun rights organization in the United States which has approximated 300,000 members. It has often been in opposition to the NRA, (National Rifle Association), and accuses them of being a bit weak when fighting the anti-gun lobby. Gun Owners of America was founded in 1975 by the NRA board member and California state senator H.L. Richardson when legislation to ban all handguns was introduced in California. Richardson also founded Gun Owners of California, which deals specifically with gun ownership rights in California. GOA's executive director is Larry Pratt, who also hosts GOA's audio webcast, Live Fire.

Founded by Jews in 1989, JPFO initially aimed at educating the Jewish community about the historical evils that Jews have suffered when they have been disarmed.
Accepting no compromise on the issue of gun control, NAGR works tirelessly to hold politicians accountable for their anti-gun views, and have made great strides in protecting and preserving the Second Amendment.
The Second Amendment Foundation, (SAF), is dedicated to promoting a better understanding about our Constitutional heritage to privately own and possess firearms. To that end, we carry on many educational and legal action programs designed to better inform the public about the gun control debate.
The purposes and objectives of Firearms Policy Coalition are:
• To protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
• People’s rights, privileges, and immunities deeply rooted in this Nation’s history and tradition.
• The inalienable, fundamental, and individual right to keep and bear arms.
Disarmament of the People
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
A flagrant threat to the Second Amendment is detailed in a 1961 State Department Memorandum, which explains how the United Nations will oversee "complete disarmament" of the American people under the ruse of preventing war. You can find this online here under the specific law - Title 22 USC section 2551, which was signed by John F. Kennedy. What is frightening about it, is the lengths they are prepared to go to in order to achieve this complete disarmament.
Dogma created to turn people against having their own guns promote guns increase crime. However, dramatized movies depicting many gun battles do not really represent American history. The American people's history with guns is a good one, and in the past, many adults right down to young lads had guns, yet the majority did not go out and commit violent acts. It was, however, important for the people to have access to them in order to protect themselves from an outside threat, should the need arise. Even Sheriffs across the United States are rising up against disarmament.
In a very revealing video, JPFO's Rabbi, Dovid Bendory, who incidentally is himself Jewish, tells us what Americans are facing regarding their Second Amendment rights in the near future. It is very interesting to note that the biggest anti-gun organization is Handgun Control Inc., and their leadership is about 50% Jewish.
He gives some highly compelling arguments in his lecture presentation "The Ten Commandments of Self Defense", which uses the Jewish faith and ancient texts to answer some hard questions on the rights of self-defense. Below are some quotes from the Torah which he uses to argue for the defense of second amendment rights:
"The Torah says: If someone comes to kill you, preemptively strike him first."
"If the thief is found tunneling into the house and he is hit and killed, there is no blood guilt."
"One who breaks into a home, whether by day or night, if the homeowner kills him there is no crime."
Gun Control Today, Dictatorship Tomorrow
There are plenty of historical examples to show that government restriction and prevention of firearms can lead to dictatorship and in some extreme cases genocide of its citizens. We have cited a number of examples below and the JPFO have done up an easy with PDF, which you can download here.
1911: Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million non-combatant Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
1929: The Soviet Union established gun control. From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million non-combatant “dissidents,” unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
1935: China established gun control. From 1948 to 1952, 20 million non-combatant political “dissidents,” unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
1938: Germany established gun control. From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million non-combatant Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
1956: Cambodia established gun control. From 1975 to 1977, one million educated non-combatant people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
1964: Guatemala established gun control. From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
1970: Uganda established gun control. From 1971 to 1979 300,000 non-combatant Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Defenseless and non-combatant people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century: 56 million
Gun Laws By Nation
You can find a full list of gun laws and policies from around the world which we have included a link to. We have also included some interesting information on some of the nation's case studies, that are brought up as evidence, every time gun control is argued in the United States.
Guns in America
It is estimated that 47% of American adults currently report ownership of a gun. People who have automatic guns in the United States need to be concerned, because, the so-called Government wants to bring in laws to ban automatics. You can bury your guns, but make sure the guns are buried in a container that is sealed to ensure no water or moisture gets to them. Make inquiries into what substance to use for preserving the guns, and bury large amounts of ammunition. Last but not least, remember where you buried them! These measures are important because governments have a history of taking liberties away from their people and killing many of them. You may need your guns in the future. You are not breaking any laws providing you do it before the gun laws come into effect.
Guns in Australia
In 1996 the Australian so-called government passed gun-control laws to remove automatic guns and many Australians protested. This change in law happened in a record 12 days with all states agreeing to the proposal after the Port Arthur Massacre.
Although residents were told removing automatic guns would reduce the crime rate, it continues to rise. There was a video that has, unfortunately, been removed, explaining how to effectively bury your guns in Australia. Hopefully, some people in Australia saw this and buried their guns so they can one day retrieve them if necessary.
Guns in England
The English Bill of Rights in 1689 affirmed, among other things, the right of every Englishman to keep and bear arms. For more information: Bill of Rights 1689, from Wikipedia, says:
“It reestablished the liberty of Protestants to have arms for their defense within the rule of law.”
Since 1920, the UK has been gradually implementing strict regulation of the civilian ownership of firearms through 1920, 1937, 1968, 1988, (amendment), and 1997, (amendment), Firearms Acts. These enactments have to lead to the outright ban on the ownership of all automatic, and most self-loading, firearms in the UK. The ownership of breech-loading handguns is also very tightly controlled and effectively limited to those persons who may require such a handgun for the non-routine humane killing of injured or dangerous animals.
If you wish to obtain a gun in the UK, you need to have either a Shotgun Certificate, (SGC), or a Firearm Certificate, (FAC). Both of these are issued by local police after the applicant has met the required criteria. These criteria include having no criminal convictions, no medical conditions or disability, including alcohol and drug related conditions, no history of treatment for depression, or any other kind of mental or nervous disorder, or epilepsy. You need to also provide reasons as to why you require guns, and "self-defence" is not considered an acceptable "good reason" for firearm ownership.
Guns in Switzerland
Switzerland has some the world's most lax gun control, however, unlike the United States, it also has incredibly low gun related crime. The country had one mass shooting in 2001, but a resulting referendum to restrict gun ownership failed to pass.
Switzerland’s gun ownership is rooted in a sense of patriotic duty and national identity. Weapons are kept at home, because of the long-held belief that enemies could invade tiny Switzerland quickly, so every soldier had to be able to fight his way to his regiment’s assembly point. Historians believe that Switzerland was at risk of being invaded by Germany during World War II, but was spared. Germany knew that every Swiss man was armed and trained to shoot.
One of the reasons the crime rate in Switzerland is low is the culture of responsibility and safety that is passed from generation to generation within Swiss society. Kids learn to sharpshoot and become part of gun groups from the age of 12. "Social conditions are fundamental in deterring crime,” says Peter Squires, professor of criminology and public policy at the University of Brighton in Great Britain. He has studied gun violence in different countries and concluded, a “culture of support”, rather than focus on individualism, can deter mass killings.
