“Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
“In 1939, Germany established gun control. From 1939 to 1945, six million Jews and seven million others unable to defend themselves were exterminated.” ~ Joe Wurzelbacher

This week on The Solari Report, Harry Blazer joins me to discuss gun ownership and efforts to enforce as well as compromise the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution:
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Increasingly, law-abiding citizens find themselves at a disadvantage in the balance of power relative to:
- Scores of well-armed government agencies with surveillance, arrest and seizure powers and significant corporate and mercenary contracting capacity;
- Criminal networks and their local gangs and snitches that enjoy the support of the politicians, black budget operatives, and banks they finance.
Gun ownership offers some protections, providing citizens with a defense in a significant number of criminal and violent confrontations.
Last week’s intervention by a former NRA gun instructor in a Texas church shooting is an important example of the role that gun owners play in protecting themselves and other people during the critical time period between the start of a crime and the arrival of law enforcement. These precious minutes often are the difference between life and death. This case also underscores why it is essential that law-abiding citizens own assault weapons.
Unfortunately, the majority of gun control proposals would strip or restrict the power of law abiding citizens, leaving them at the mercy of both criminals and a political class looking to abrogate retirement obligations and steal more assets.
As Harry Blazer says, “What is your plan?” Indeed, you need to have one. Assuming responsibility for your personal safety and the safety of family and neighbors has never been more important, particularly given the mind control technologies discussed in Control 101 and The War for Your Mind.

In Let’s Go to the Movies, I will review one of my favorite Westerns – The Outlaw Josey Wales – which explores the issues of law and enforcement in a world torn apart by multiple cultures and economic interests competing for land, natural resources and power. Sound familiar?
Talk to you Thursday!
