    I just got back from the awesome Tulsa arms show where I had the pleasure of meeting NRA CEO, Wayne LaPierre. I found him personable and appreciative. His book "Inside the U.N. Plan to Destroy the Bill of Rights, The Global War on Your Guns" is certainly a must read for us all. It's hard enough battling those in our own country, let alone the whole world. I want to share with you his inscription: "To Jeff, thanks for all your support. It's for freedom!" It was a timely reminder to me, still on cloud 9 over my beloved home state of Kansas' rebuff of those who would restrict our basic guaranteed freedoms expressed by the Second Amendment. So remember, it's about Freedom.

    Actually, this is an international movement. The only countries which have had any gun ownership culture other than the US have had serious attacks on them of late.

    Australia, South Africa, Brazil. They've all had attacks on rkba of late. UNESCO has been behind a lot of this. LaPierre is very right to try to take this fight international. We need foreign allies, and an international gun culture.

    My strategic interpretation:

    The fight we are just wrapping up (victoriously) is the CCW fight in the US. Only a few more states to go on that. This victory legitimizes the concept of guns for self defense and creates a constituency of gun-packers who will be active and vocal about their rights.

    The next fight is international gun rights. The more solid RKBA is around the world, the more solid it is here. We need to help our friends and neighbors, near and far, to start getting shall-isue CCW in their countries, and then we need to work on some form of international reciprocity (far off, I know).

    Europe in particular needs to rediscover CCW. CCW used to be common all over Europe, and it still is in a couple of countries. At the same time, crime is going up in Europe. Maybe it's an opportunity to re-introduce them to their history of CCW.

    On that topic, talking about the UN taking away our gun rights might be less productive than figuring out how we can use the UN to promote gun rights.

    International indeed.

    You're absolutely correct. I think the true value of these boards is to remind others of issues they might have forgotten. This truly is an international problem; I didn't mean to sound so isolationist.
