A lesson soon learned the hard way by the intellectually lazy in this country.

"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."

"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."

Thanks for sharing the link. It is always interesting to hear how others view the U.S, from the "outside", if you will. Even if it is from the so-called "former" Soviet Union.

I wish the works of Alexander Solhenitsyn were available as audio books. If more people could be exposed to them it would be a great help in promoting the Second Amendment and freedom in general. People don't read like they used to but many will listen to an audio book and often someone who hears (or over hears) another person listening will become interested.

Guns go both ways. Didn't armed civilians use their weapons to put the reds in power in the first place?

Lenin used the forces of ignorance by inflaming them with the human failings of envy, jealousy, and revenge to divide and conquer the population by turning peasants against the industrialist and large landowners. Once they had been brought them down he turned against the small land owner and professionals, including educators. Lenin's actions from the 1890's until the mid 1920's are very similar to those of a certain political affiliation now. We can learn from history.
