"Paleolithic Britain"

A rather interesting take on the absence of a right to arms in the UK.   :(

Paleolithic Britain
Posted on November 30, 2019 by Oleg Volk
The recent terrorist event in the zoo previously known as Great Britain illustrated the unfortunate decline of that people. On the one hand, brave residents went after the perpetrator of violence with all available tools. On the other, the sole available weapon was a narwhal tusk in its original shape, not even fashioned into a proper spear. That’s Paleolith-level tool, no better than those available to Neanderthals.

It’s symptomatic that the would-be mass murderer continued the rampage until the zoo-keepers known as “bobbies” showed up with German submachine guns and Austrian pistols to shoot him. Good for the British subjects for taking the fight to the foe. My sympathy to them for having to do that with completely inadequate tools, for having been stripped even of bronze age implements like knives and even of paleolithic tools like non-metallic blades.

Kipling’s book “The Light That Failed” set around 1880 shows even ten-year-old kids of very modest means able to buy and carry modern firearms. A hundred and forty years later, even the adult specimens of the British herd have no such right or ability.

As with other island species that evolved away from the ability to defend themselves, or even to recognize newly imported predators upon encounter, the residents of the British Isles are in trouble. The trouble doesn’t come as much from the imported terrorists, for their depredations are opportunistic and not statistically significant yet, as from the domestic zoo-keepers using the specter of the Islamic hobgoblins to keep the proles scared, clamoring for more surveillance, for more restrictions on tools and behavior, for tighter and more constricting bondage. People elsewhere should learn from their example and pick a more constructive path.

    The right to keep and bear arms was included in the Bill of Rights Act 1689. Before that it was considered a Common Law Right but was written down because James II tried to disarm protestants (that is why the Act specifically mentions protestants having the right to bear arms). Sadly we are now in the position where all three branches of our government have seen fit to ignore this entirely and we've had a century of ever more repressive gun control.
    Remember that the next time you hear someone calling for even the slightest tightening of gun control anywhere. That 'minor' and 'reasonable' law they want is only another step on the road to disarming you.
