Sgt., It was another of those Russian Thompsons which have been cut up to "make the world safe," just like the British thought when they largely disarmed their populace between WWI and WWII.
So who came to the rescue (primarily) when the Nazis began grabbing real estate all over Europe? Why, the 'Arsenal of Democracy," the U.S.A., of course. My only question is: who will be our, 'Arsenal of Democracy,' when and if the U.S. is ever invaded? Remember, the number of men in uniform (under the American flag) is the smallest it has been in decades and they are spread very thinly around the world.
"Never happen,"you say.
Well, just ask the average contemporary Briton if they don't feel invaded by violent crimimals, since their politicians largely disarmed the British populace for the second time within a century (creating a skyrocketing violent crime increase, 28% in the last year alone), about three years ago. I found this information on the Reuters website. Check out some of the foreign news sites and wipe the cobwebs from your eyes. The liberal media want to keep us ignorant of how crime has greatly increased in many nations around the world where so-called 'gun control-gun registration- gun confiscation has taken place'. These nations include, but are not limited to: Great Britain, Australia, South Africa, and Mexico. It's far easier to disarm a blind man. That is why I call the liberal news media and politicians cowards!
Vote, all of you patriots out there (and let your politicians know how you feel)! If not now, when? If not you, who?
P.S. Maybe we can learn from the mistakes of others (including other nations). It is certainly a lot less painful than the, 'school of hard knocks'.
