Today, German Chancellor Angela Merkel demanded even tougher gun control measures relating to storage of firearms and ammunition in Germany. With an audacity that defies belief the former East German communist also called for unannounced raids on homes and offices of registered firearm owners. In an interview with the Deutschlandfunk Merkel said: “We must do everything to prevent children’s access to firearms.” As a further consequence of the recent mass shooting in Germany Merkel wants citizens to be more alert and pay particular attention to young people.“ However, Germans Secretary of State Wolfgan Schäuble in an interview with the German State TV station ARD warned against overregulation of already tight firearm laws in Germany.
If Merkel was so concerned about the children, why would she not call for a ban on prescription of antidepressants, such as Prozac or Xanax. All mass shootings, including the latest German tragedy, have been connected with pychotropic drugs. SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) are excessively prescribed to children and young people and cause violent and irrational behaviour in people. SSRIs are big business for big Pharma and for the politicians who are sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry. Who are you working for, Frau Merkel?
Germans have no constitutional right to bear arms. Politicians like Merkel are now pressing further their global agenda to making private gun ownership a social taboo worldwide. Politicians and media are pushing for gun control and victim disarmament with slogans such as “More guns — more ‘gun crime’” and out of Kingdom Britain: “Tough on Knife Crime”. However, such correlation does not exist and facts prove that firearms left in the hands of law abiding citizen prevent crime.
Here are some examples of factoids used by the ruling class to disarm the ruled, factoids that prove that gun ownership in reality increase everybody’s safety.
“More guns lead to more ‘gun crime’”
“Tougher restriction on firearm ownership lowers ‘gun crime’”
“Tougher gun control leads to reduction of gun ownership in the population”
(Prof. Lott, University of Illinois, More Guns, Less Crime 1998)
States with lower number of firearms have higher murder rates than Texas, where weapon density is highest. States with nearly the same number of private firearms (than in TX). E.g Vermont, have a 20 times lower murder rate.
The notion that tougher access to guns will lower gun related crimes is also easily disproved. Consider this: New York with its gun bans still has one of the highest crime and murder rates. Vermont, with its liberal gun laws, has low crime and murder rates. Vermont citizens own three times as many guns as those in New York State.
It is not only probable but very likely that the recent spurs of mass shootings are coordinated efforts by criminal elements within government to garner public tolerance for the introduction of unconstitutional search and seizure operations by the state and the legislation of draconian laws designed to restrict the freedom of its citizens. Germany has one of the toughest gun control laws in Europe, yet it is the law abiding citizen who is subject to further restrictions and control.
A different paradox is emerging out of Great Britain. After the “Handgun ban” the number of weapons in private possession did not sink as expected. Gun owners switched to those firearms, which were still legal in Britain. At the same time, custom records show an increase of illegal weapons import (pistols, revolvers) into Great Britain. At the same time, numbers of armed robberies in Britain are drastically on the rise. According to the Lott-Study (More Guns, Less Crime), the opposite correlation is correct. In the 40 states, in which carrying a concealed weapon is legal, violent crime is the lowest. Lott proves in his study that numbers of victims of violent crimes are greatly reduced in those states that allow carrying of concealed weapons.
Furthermore, the notion that stricter gun control legislation leads to lower numbers of private gun ownership can easily be disproved. Only law abiding citizens will surrender their weapons thus render themselves defenceless against criminals. For example, Germany with the toughest gun laws has the highest number of illegal gun ownership. Similarly in Britain: Despite the ban of handguns, the number of illegally owned guns is rising.
Of course, every country has a legitimate interest to guarantee its safety and that of its citizens. That is one more reason to recognize the importance of the verifiable connections of gun ownership and crime and investigate the effect of disarmament on the safety of the people. Restrictions for the sake of it are neither legal (Germany, Britain or elsewhere) nor in the best interest of the people.
Calling for Merkel’s Resignation and Arrest
The logical conclusion therefore is that Merkel’s calls for even tougher gun control and her criminal proposal of illegal raids on homes of German citizens is not introduced to protect Germans but to control them. If only the government is armed, any civil disobedience can easily be crushed by governments, as it is happening in Britain since 1997. Rogue politicians like Merkel are not working for the German people. She clearly is in the pockets of the global banker elite. Merkel, with her criminal comments, has lost her legitimate right to hold office. The people of Germany must call for Merkel’s immediate resignation, consequent investigation and her arrest for treason. If they don’t, and if Merkel gets her way, Germans will see history repeat itself in their own country, when SS style police SWAT teams in black uniforms with machine guns raid their homes and are, without judge and jury, guilty until proven innocent.
