European Police Chiefs Say Why Gun Control Is Not Working In Their Countries; We’re Outgunned

As most American know when guns are outlawed, only the outlaws will have guns. European countries with extremely restrictive gun laws are now living this reality. Gun control only stops honest citizens from being able to defend themselves and their families.
Breitbart reports:
Europol chief of staff Brian Donald says there were two “large seizures” of firearms–particularly “assault weapons”–over the last two weeks and more seizures are expected as investigations and tracking continues.

According to TIME magazine, this is indicative of the reality European police face. Regardless of the gun control laws passed/implemented, jihadists are able to arm themselves just as those who attacked the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo’s headquarters on January 7 were armed.
Cherif and Said Kouachi “were armed with Kalashnikov rifles and could easily outgun the police officers who tried to apprehend them with pistols,” not to mention the police officers who weren’t armed. The third attacker, Amedy Coulibaly, “had an even greater collection of military grade weapons.”
The terrorists also had grenade launchers and Scorpion machine guns. AFP reports that Coulibaly had purchased most of the weapons from an unnamed arms trafficker in Belgium.
On January 7 reported the that Charlie Hebdo attack exposed the black markets for firearms that now exist in Europe–particularly France–and undercut gun control.

In other words, gun control appears to have created a false sense of security for the European people and their police forces as well. The reality is that guns remain available in black markets, albeit especially for those who have criminal or terrorist intent.


  1. It works the same way in all places and all times. Here is what my great uncle Harry Kennedy had to say about his experience in 1889:

    "Well, I will tell you some of my experience as a
    policeman in Genesco, Illinois, a little town of about four thousand
    population. It was badly over run with crime of different kinds, till the
    city dads were very much perplexed with the problem. They were being
    committed in all parts of the town and against all different kinds of
    people. I told the mayor that I would like to try an experiment with his
    town. "Well, anything goes," he said, "if it will help." I proposed
    that every citizen get a gun and carry it, then when they saw a crime being
    committed they could act as policemen during the act, and could make a citizen's
    arrest. Even women got guns and would go target practicing with revolvers;
    they could carry the guns concealed among their clothing. The crime
    stopped almost at once, and for years the town was noted for its lack of crime,
    the criminals having left for other places where it was easier to ply their

  2. Have you ever heard of a government that banned it's own ARMED FORCES from "Keeping and Bearing" ARMS?
    Find one government in the history of humanity that felt a need to document a "RIGHT" for it's ARMED FORCES to possess ARMS.
    The claim that the Government wrote the 2nd Amendment to give Our ARMED FORCES a "right" to carry ARMS is S-T-U-P-I-D.
    The only reason for the Second Amendment is to clearly spell-out the GOD GIVEN RIGHT of INDIVIDUALS to keep & bear ARMS.
    The only reason for the BILL(list) of RIGHTS was to codify INDIVIDUALS' GOD GIVEN RIGHTS.
    Has there ever been a government that was not chock full of it's "rights" up to and including declaring itself to be the Lord God Almighty?!
    Does the 1st Amendment mean the GOVERNMENT is allowed to give speeches? Try shutting up any Government.
    Anyone who tells you the 2nd Amendment applies to the Army or State Militia, is telling you they think you are STUPID.
    There has NEVER been a government that felt it had to codify it's army's/soldier's "RIGHT" to "Keep and BEAR ARMS" because there has NEVER been a government that refused to allow It's own soldiers to KEEP and BEAR ARMS!
