Americans never give up your guns
28.12.2012

By Stanislav Mishin


These days, there are few things to admire about the socialist, bankrupt and culturally degenerating USA, but at least so far, one thing remains: the right to bear arms and use deadly force to defend one's self and possessions.

This will probably come as a total shock to most of my Western readers, but at one point, Russia was one of the most heavily armed societies on earth. This was, of course, when we were free under the Tsar. Weapons, from swords and spears to pistols, rifles and shotguns were everywhere, common items. People carried them concealed, they carried them holstered. Fighting knives were a prominent part of many traditional attires and those little tubes criss crossing on the costumes of Cossacks and various Caucasian peoples? Well those are bullet holders for rifles.

Various armies, such as the Poles, during the Смута (Times of Troubles), or Napoleon, or the Germans even as the Tsarist state collapsed under the weight of WW1 and Wall Street monies, found that holding Russian lands was much much harder than taking them and taking was no easy walk in the park but a blood bath all its own. In holding, one faced an extremely well armed and aggressive population Hell bent on exterminating or driving out the aggressor.

This well armed population was what allowed the various White factions to rise up, no matter how disorganized politically and militarily they were in 1918 and wage a savage civil war against the Reds. It should be noted that many of these armies were armed peasants, villagers, farmers and merchants, protecting their own. If it had not been for Washington's clandestine support of and for the Reds, history would have gone quite differently.


Moscow fell, for example, not from a lack of weapons to defend it, but from the lying guile of the Reds. Ten thousand Reds took Moscow and were opposed only by some few hundreds of officer cadets and their instructors. Even then the battle was fierce and losses high. However, in the city alone, at that time, lived over 30,000 military officers (both active and retired), all with their own issued weapons and ammunition, plus tens of thousands of other citizens who were armed. The Soviets promised to leave them all alone if they did not intervene. They did not and for that were asked afterwards to come register themselves and their weapons: where they were promptly shot.

Of course being savages, murderers and liars does not mean being stupid and the Reds learned from their Civil War experience. One of the first things they did was to disarm the population. From that point, mass repression, mass arrests, mass deportations, mass murder, mass starvation were all a safe game for the powers that were. The worst they had to fear was a pitchfork in the guts or a knife in the back or the occasional hunting rifle. Not much for soldiers.

To this day, with the Soviet Union now dead 21 years, with a whole generation born and raised to adulthood without the SU, we are still denied our basic and traditional rights to self defense. Why? We are told that everyone would just start shooting each other and crime would be everywhere....but criminals are still armed and still murdering and too often, especially in the far regions, those criminals wear the uniforms of the police. The fact that everyone would start shooting is also laughable when statistics are examined.

While President Putin pushes through reforms, the local authorities, especially in our vast hinterland, do not feel they need to act like they work for the people. They do as they please, a tyrannical class who knows they have absolutely nothing to fear from a relatively unarmed population. This in turn breeds not respect but absolute contempt and often enough, criminal abuse.

For those of us fighting for our traditional rights, the US 2nd Amendment is a rare light in an ever darkening room. Governments will use the excuse of trying to protect the people from maniacs and crime, but are in reality, it is the bureaucrats protecting their power and position. In all cases where guns are banned, gun crime continues and often increases. As for maniacs, be it nuts with cars (NYC, Chapel Hill NC), swords (Japan), knives (China) or home made bombs (everywhere), insane people strike. They throw acid (Pakistan, UK), they throw fire bombs (France), they attack. What is worse, is, that the best way to stop a maniac is not psychology or jail or "talking to them", it is a bullet in the head, that is why they are a maniac, because they are incapable of living in reality or stopping themselves.

The excuse that people will start shooting each other is also plain and silly. So it is our politicians saying that our society is full of incapable adolescents who can never be trusted? Then, please explain how we can trust them or the police, who themselves grew up and came from the same culture?

No it is about power and a total power over the people. There is a lot of desire to bad mouth the Tsar, particularly by the Communists, who claim he was a tyrant, and yet under him we were armed and under the progressives disarmed. Do not be fooled by a belief that progressives, leftists hate guns. Oh, no, they do not. What they hate is guns in the hands of those who are not marching in lock step of their ideology. They hate guns in the hands of those who think for themselves and do not obey without question. They hate guns in those whom they have slated for a barrel to the back of the ear.

So, do not fall for the false promises and do not extinguish the light that is left to allow humanity a measure of self respect.

  1. What is this? Pro NRA BS if you ask me. So Russians were "free" under the Tsar? LOL wow really? Most were serfs! Look, it is next to impossible to even repeal the second ammendment. All this media propaganda about the government taking your guns away is for creating fear and division.

    If you read the comments from this article, most were crazy people blaming "leftists", socialists, communists, and democrats. Fear is raging in them and they are brainwashed into thinking that "the left" is taking their freedoms away. They are now gripped in fear and division. Yup, right into their hands.

    1. Hi) I'm Russian.. Yes, we were free under Tsar. Only 1/6 were "serfs" and there was no slavery since 1861 (you can read it in any school book). But history is written by the victors, right? And can be re-written by communists propaganda. Now no one in Russia denying that "the left" took all freedoms away from individuals.. even left guys agree that is was too much!

  2. Very surprised to see a pro-gun polemic on this site. I really hope this is not the start of a trend. Guns definitely have no place in an Ascended Earth.

    "Of course being savages, murderers and liars does not mean being stupid..."

    And while the author is capable of de-humanising people in such a perfunctory manner it is hard to take any of his points seriously.

    Corporate Person-hood challenge in California - HOV lane violation, the guy's argument is that he had paperwork for a corporation in the car with him, which California has declared is legally a person.

  5. Our line in the sand that 'they' dare not cross. Hopefully it will not come to a confrontation with the 'pathetic in power', but if so then a resolve to hold our ground, to hold our rights will be our only course of action. Remember that the Whole world is watching this unfold here in the U.S. This is the last bastion, the oppressed of the world are watching, let us not falter in our resolve to retain our Constitutional freedoms. 'Behind every blade of grass'.

  7. Awesome! Isn't the same thing happening in Australia right now? The crime rate has actually increased because good people turned in their weapons making them easy targets for the criminals who did not. Taking guns away changes only two things...for the worse: crime goes up; and the elite and governments gain more power over the commoners.

  9. Wow! So much for the "Golden Age". The want, need, or desire for guns just seems so counter productive to being on the path to enlightenment or raising one's consciousness.

    Lately, I've really been wondering why a person that wants self-defense options are given the choice of a gun as the best option. Like saying if you really want to protect yourself or your family.......you have to be willing to kill another person. That's a terrible choice to have to make. That's what it boils down to since guns/bullets are lethal.

    So, I'm supposed to believe that after all these hundreds of years there is still no better option for defense than a gun? No viable non-lethal alternative for protection, even with all we know? I just don't buy it.
