Migrant influx has Europeans arming up

The urge to self-preservation may not be entirely dead among native Europeans.  According to European news sources, cited in this article at WND, Europeans who have the realistic option of purchasing firearms have started doing so, at a dramatically increased rate.

Although the citizens of several key countries (e.g., Germany, the Netherlands) are basically prohibited from buying guns — by the very high obstacles their governments set for such purchases — those who can are flocking to gun vendors.  Women are reportedly the customer base showing the biggest increase.

Austria is one of the nations where guns are selling fast.

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.

“If anyone wants to buy a long gun in Austria right now, too bad for them,” the Czech newscaster says. “All of them are currently sold out.”

He cites the Austrian news outlet Trioler Tageszeitung as the source of his report.

“We cannot complain about lack of demand,” Stephen Mayer, a gun merchant, told Trioler Tageszeitung.

He claims the stock has been sold out for the last three weeks and that demand is being fueled by fears generated by social changes.

Alan Gottlieb, familiar to many Americans as a Second Amendment activist, says he has seen a shift in European attitudes about gun rights — clearly a shift linked to the influx of migrants, some of whom have been issuing threats, attacking local women, and creating incidents of mass violence in the camps where they are housed.

  1. When the poor, innocent, Kosovar Muslims fled across the FYROM border in order to escape the ‘rapacious’ Serbs (back when you and me wuz both in theater — and younger), the first structure they set up in the refugee camp was — a brothel.

    Something tells me similar structures are going up, all along the hapless German vassal states bordering southern Germany.

    I pity the blameless, little, struggling, new and old democracies in Southeastern/Central Europe. The migrant crisis, for them, is an accident of geography. This is not truly a European problem, it’s a German, or more precisely a Teutonic/Germanic problem. No supposed ‘refugee’ wants to lodge in Greece or Sicily, It’s the Munich to Stockholm land of handouts, subsidized lodging. free lunches, and license to Islamisize that they’re after. It’s a continuation of the ongoing slow invasion that began with the gastarbeiter from Anatolia in the sixties They act with incredible impunity and are well organized/supported by our ‘friends’ from Riyadh to Ankara. The historical irony about the direction of the flow of the barbanians doesen’t escape me either. I can’t hide a slight, (although, I really shouldn’t) satisfaction that the loony Sunni are moving into the lands of the Germans, those same Germans that are continiously, the historical responsible reason for the ails of Europe since the fall of the Western Roman Empire. The Germans, subsidize their invaders, while at the same time, absoloutely insist on economically strangling Europe’s historical southeastern bulwark Greece — it’s absolutely insane. Only a German mind could implement this logic. Well, I could write pages on this, how Russia will captalize on the situtuation, the greater geopolitics, and so forth. But, not as well as you.

    As for (more than) some of us here in living in South Europe. Yes, we are armed, very well. And, just as importantly, almost all south of Vienna are innoculated against living in a muslim-ruled state, we know what that means. Our problem, like the West’s in general, is political leadership.

    There will be a backlash. And in true, traditional, European fashon, it will be ugly.
