Default Very sad news from Belgorod ,Russia

6 people got killed....

I really think that it would be best if people could legally carry in order to have a chance to survive.

makes me sad when I read about that kind of stuff.

If you believe the mainstream media this only happens in the US due to our lax gun laws. It looks like the shooter used a hunting rifle (bolt action?) that he stole from his father. Again none of the new legislation currently proposed would stop someone from doing the same thing here in the United States.

You should know that the Duma is supposedly going to debate pistol legalization again on account of this incident. If adopted, it will establish a permitting system so that average Russian citizens can own pistols - what's more, the permit is also a license to carry, so it qualifies you for both ownership of handguns as well as self-defense with them.

Alexei Navalny did a TV spot not too long ago about this. It's pretty awesome, even if you don't understand Russian:

I want this to happen, not just because it further advances the idea that self-defense (and guns) is a human right, but because it really puts forth a sharp juxtaposition. Some lunatic uses a gun for mass murder here and the political class seizes that as an opportunity to disarm the proletariat. In *Russia*, it may well go the opposite direction. As their society becomes more free, one hopes that it might wake people the *%$@ up in ours.

At least 2,000 police and special forces were engaged in the operation. Highway police were searching all vehicles on the road, and Belgorod residents had been told to stay in their homes if possible and to not disrupt the search operation.

Sounds vaguely familiar.....
There is no week nor day nor hour, when tyranny may not enter upon this country, if the people lose their supreme confidence in themselves -- and lose their roughness and spirit of defiance -- Tyranny may always enter -- there is no charm, no bar against it -- the only bar against it is a large resolute breed of men.
