The Newest Gun Craze: Europe

Austrians are arming themselves at record rates in an effort to defend their households against feared attacks from Muslim invaders.
Tens of thousands of Muslim “refugees” have poured into Austria from Hungary and Slovenia in recent months on their way to Germany and Sweden, two wealthy European countries that have laid out the welcome mat for migrants. More than a million will end up in Germany alone by the end of this year, according to estimates from the German government.
Obtaining a working firearm and ammunition in Germany, Britain, Denmark and the Netherlands is practically impossible for the average citizen. Germany, for instance, requires a psychological evaluation, the purchase of liability insurance and verifiable compliance with strict firearms storage and safety rules. And self-defense is not even a valid reason to purchase a gun in these countries.

The laws in Austria, while still strict, are a bit less overbearing.
A Czech TV report confirms that long guns – shotguns and rifles – have been flying off the shelves in Austria, and Austrians who haven’t already purchased a gun may not have a chance to get one for some time. They’re all sold out.
And those arming themselves are primarily women.

I am glad to see this. It means Europeans are realizing that their faith in the state is misplaced, and the immigrant crime rates in Germany, Sweden and France demonstrate the state's willingness to sacrifice the safety of their own citizens for their social engineering designs. It also destroys the Cabal's favorite lie: the false narrative that Europeans are safe without guns. I hope the pro-self defense consensus builds in Europe, both to keep the invaders at bay and to prevent the growth of extremist governments.

The Martian


I never read the book but I was pleasantly surprised by this effort by Ridley Sctt, especially after Prometheus (which was not as good as I had hoped). The characterization was a bit better than most hard SF stories, nothing terribly implausible (other than the depiction of a Martian windstorm and a few other things, but I will give artistic license its due) and most of all, a future where there the space program is actually dedicated to space exploration, rather than embracing political correctness.

Kepler Telescope discovers possible Dyson Swarm/Sphere




The search for an alien MEGASTRUCTURE: Radio telescope starts analysing 'bizarre' star that could be surrounded by a Dyson sphere built by extraterrestrials

  • KIC 8462852 is located 1480 light-years away from Earth
  • Has produced a series of bizarre light fluctuations team cannot explain
  • One theory is that a vast megastructure is obscuring the light from it  
Researchers have begun an in depth study of a 'bizarre' star they say could be surrounded by a huge alien megastructure known as a Dyson sphere.
KIC 8462852, located 1,480 light-years away, was monitored by the Kepler Space Telescope for more than four years, beginning in 2009.
Now researchers have secured time to point the Allen Telescope Array at the star.

(Female) Law Professor on Campus Carry: Women Can’t Use Guns Effectively



During October 20 testimony on the campus carry legislation currently under consideration by Florida lawmakers, Miami University law professor Mary Anne Franks contended that allowing women to be armed for self-defense will not accomplish much because they cannot use guns effectively.

According to the Herald-Tribune, Franks argued that guns are “highly effective” when they are being used for crimes, “but are rarely effective in preventing them.” And she suggested the idea that women will be able to stop a sexual assault with a gun is simply not realistic.
She claimed that armed women will not be successful because most victims of such assault know their attackers. She said the only way arming a woman will help is if the woman plans on “going out on a date with her hand on a gun.” The Tallahassee Democrat quoted Franks saying, “Studies done by many, many professional[s] have shown that it is really, really unlikely for anyone to use a gun effectively in self defense, especially in cases of sexual assault.”
It is interesting to note that Franks’ suggestion that arming women would not be effective against sexual assault goes against what armed women have been able to do while under attack by a sexual predator.

On the surface it is stupid enough. Women are one of the fastest growing demogrphics in gun sales and support for the right to own guns. 

Below the surface, this is a demonstration of the hypocrisy of political feminism. Here is a woman near the top of the ivory tower telling women to be damsels.
