European Union – A gun free dream land for Terrorists and criminals
The European Union members have some of the strictest Gun Laws in the world. All over the EU, for Law abiding citizens is it almost impossible to own a gun and even worst to carry one.
Most countries in the EU, like Germany and Austria for example, differentiate between “the right to own a gun” “Gun owners permit” and “the right to carry a gun”, “Hunting and Sports Guns”, and “license free (Category “C”) guns”.
Gun Owners Permit
Citizens have to obtain a so called “Weapon Pass”. After severe background checks, citizens have to make weapons uses and handling classes, take a test and IF the qualify they are allowed to purchase a gun.
BUT – they are now only allowed to “own” a gun. The gun must be stored safely (Police control at any given time without probable cause) and the storage rules at home are basically: The gun and ammo has to be both locked up and stored on separate places.
For example: Just in case you are the victim of a burglar, or rapist, you have to go first in one closet to get the gun out of a locked safe or case, and then go to another closest to get the ammo out of a locked case or safe, and if you are not raped or dead by now you are allowed to use it BUT MAKE NO MISTAKE – if you kill the criminal you might go to jail for “using excessive Force”.
Got to love uber-liberal leftist countries [if you are a Terrorist, criminal, murderer, or rapist]
Gun carry Permit
Is almost impossible to obtain, and extremely limited. Not even most Police officers, or Security guards, have a private gun carry permit. After duty they have to keep their guns in storage at work.
Sports and Hunting weapons and Rifles
Citizens need to have a hunting license and are only allowed to carry their weapon to and from Hunting or Sport shooting, and during the transport, again, weapon and ammo has to be separated. For sports guns in so called gun clubs, citizens either store their weapons at the gun club, or follow the same rules as mentioned in both categories above.
License free (Category “C”) Guns
Are Bibi-Guns, gas-airsoft pistols or any other form of bobby (Alarm) pistols. They are license free, purchasable after the age of 18, with registration by showing a valid driver’s license or passport or any other form of government ID.
And those “Category C” guns are now also the target of the European Union Commission as Kurier online, one of the largest Austrian Newspapers, reports this morning.
After “Charlie Hebdo attacks”, “the Friday 13th November 2015 Paris attacks” committed by Islamic terrorists and now the Cologne Sex attacks by Refugees and other criminals mostly with refugee status the European Union now decides to “Protects” its law-abiding citizens better by taking away their ability to protect themselves.
Their claim is that Bibi-guns, gas-airsoft-pistols can be manufactured into hot deadly weapons and they have to take away those weapons to avoid more terrorist attacks.
According to Kurier, the new regulations are tougher then tough and affect also Hunters, Sports shooters, and gun collectors.
The European Union claims that this is a reaction to the Paris attacks. A tighter gun law should embank terrorism. In reference to the 13th November IS-Terror-attack the European Union Commission calls this move a “command of the hour”. Tightening up the purchase, ownership, and import of civilian guns must take place.
In addition the European Union commission wants to ban Semi-Automatic weapons period. In addition they want a mandatory registration of Air-soft Gas guns, Alarm (Bobby) Guns, Toy guns and deactivated guns. (© by Wilhelm Theuretsbacher, Kurier online)
Here are a few facts The European Union is missing
Both Terrorist attacks, Charlie Hebdo as wells as the attack in Paris in November 2015, have NOT been committed with altered Bibi-Guns but with illegal smuggled fully automatic firearms. Those fire arms that are NOT available to purchase in Europe. Neither fully nor semi-automatic.
One CAN NOT purchase a semi-automatic AK-47, AR-15 or any other weapon like this. Those guns fall under the “War-Gun-Laws” and are highly illegal.
All Terrorists had those guns smuggled illegally to Europe. And no sensible terrorist would use an altered “Gas-Pistol”, or has anybody ever heard of a Terrorist using a Gas-Pistol?
And MOST CURTAINLY – TERRORSTS AND CRIMINALS DON’T BY THEIR GUNS IN STORES AND GET REGISTERED.
Gas-Pistols are only good as immediate Self-defense weapon. At best for short distance, if a woman is getting raped or robbed, only to incapacitate the attacker for a short period of time in order to get away. They are NOT DEADLY.
I am sure many women in Cologne, Hamburg, Salzburg, Vienna and many other European countries (latest news talk of over 300 reported incidents and still counting) would have loved to have one of those.
But now European Union, instead of giving women better access and training on those guns, and/or small caliber weapons, in order to defend themselves, the EU wants to make its law abiding citizens even more defenseless using Citizens protection as cover-up to justify their protection of criminals, Terrorists and other thugs.
Their [EU] solution to protect Citizens (NOT)
- Stay away in arm’s length of refugees and other Islamic immigrants (Henriette Reker, Mayor of Cologne).
- Oh and don’t forget you might also not wear any sexy or otherwise figure pleasing cloth you could offend the religious feelings of Islamists (Editors Interpretation of 1))
- The chief of Police of Salzburg actually thinks woman should only go out in company.
By the way – WHERE ARE THE LOUDMOUTHED LEFTIST FEMINISTS HERE?
Let’s face it Police is more busy to protect the Governmental “Open-Border-Political-Correctness-La-La-Policy” then law-abiding citizens. Cologne is the living proof of this.
Some news report that reports have been held back and orders are given to “avoid” cultural clashes (whatever that means).
Like I said – European Union, a dreamland for Terrorists and Criminals.
If you wonder where Obama and his leftist gun grabbers get their ideas from, well here is the answer.
The European gun laws and the new proposed regulations are basically what the United Nations demands since years. Unlike most Americans, Europeans worship the UN like a religion.
A naughty little beggar having evil thoughts here.
The resentment against the invasion of millions of undocumented immigrants and refugees grows rapidly in Europe. Despite the politicians hearing this they don’t care at all.
European policy of elected politicians states “We hear the problems of our constituent and are aware that we have to perform a better elucidation”. Or translated: “We hear you don’t like it but will indoctrinate or shut you up anyway”.
Europeans are highly fed up with their government that seems to care more about the political correctness and feelings of Muslims then the angst and fear of their citizens. In addition the governmental propaganda of “Welcome culture” does not work anymore.
Why this move on guns. It CAN NOT BE to lower the risk of Terrorism since even the dumbest politicians should know that terrorists and criminals don’t obey gun laws.
Or is it to disarm citizens to avoid a long overdue revolution? You be the judge of this.

Before I get started I want to point out that this Column is not about Austria as a Country or the Austrian People. Austria itself is a beautiful country. It has tremendous historical sites to see, and the Austrian Citizens are good, friendly, and amazing people.
What this column is all about is the hypocritical brainwashing European and Austrian Governments who, just like the Obama administration, does not give a darn about the wish and desires of their citizens, but stubbornly defend, promote and indoctrinate their socialist/Marxist/already dead multiculturalism/terrorist loving politics.
These are the facts of European Hypocrisy and their desperate attempt to downplay their own failure on the Arabian politics and their desperate attempt to cover their fawning-over of Dictators even against the wish and will of the United States.
When Listening to European News Networks over Satellite such as N-24, or Austrian ORF, it is unbelievable how desperately they live in denial of their own responsibilities.
Listening to those European politicians, these days they sure admit that they might have “misinterpreted” the one or the other situation “but not without pointing the finger at the United States on all their alleged failures” instead of accepting responsibility.
The finger pointing against the United States has already started in order to cover up that the United States did not have any economical businesses in those areas nor did we have strong diplomatic relations in that region.
The entire cover-up is of course properly transported through Government owned propaganda TV stations such as ORF as well as ultra liberal newspapers (real honest and independent Newspapers are anyway not to be found except the FAZ in Germany).
And now, especially the left wing radical Newspapers and magazines such as NEWS and Österreich under the left wing radical owner Wolfgang Fellner, don’t want to hear anything about that. Now that Media act puffed up how official Austria could have ever talked to those dictators.
This is hypocrisy all the way, knowing that Egypt was armed and equipped with American Military technology because they were the only Arab country holding a military alliance with the United States.
The rest of those radical Arab nations with ties to Terrorist Networks have been under a ban by the United States, which gave the irresponsible European Union an opportunity to sell their weapons to them. And now they try to cover that up by blaming the United States.
Let’s get a few facts straight:
1) Weapons in that area
The weapon ban against Libya was lifted by the United Nations in 2004 against the will of the United States by pressure from the European Union.
Latest news reports that European Union Companies sold alone in 2009 weapons and technology to Libya, Bahrain, Palestine, Lebanon, Tunisia, and other radical Islam countries in a net worth of at least $ 474 Million Dollars U.S. Spiegel online reports (1).
Helicopters from Italy, Fighter jets from France and Germany, Communications technology such as Internet and telephone kill switches from Germany, side arms, assault rifles and unmanned drones from Austria, Tanks from France and the UK, Crowd control weapons (used against demonstrations and to repress opposition) from the UK and Kalashnikovs from Russia just to name a few. Russia alone has an ongoing Arms deals with that region in an amount of 40 Billion Dollar, in Libya itself, 2 Billion Dollars AHN News.com (2) reports.
As a matter of fact the standard assault rifle of the Tunisian Military is the Steyr AUG 77, reported among the top ten Assault rifles, and also used by the Australian Army and many special Forces in the world made in Austria.
1) Social Acceptance of Gaddafi and his offspring
Less than a month ago they have cheered to Saiif al-Islam Gaddafi as a reformer, they have fawned over him whenever he was in Austria, his mother and sister have been well liked shopping customers in Vienna. Aisha Gaddafi was cheered in the Austrian left wing media as the “Claudia Schiffer of the middle east. Pointing out how beautiful and intelligent she was, showing strength against America when defending Saddam Hussein”.
Meanwhile, it was confirmed last week that while Gaddafi’s wife Saifya and his daughter Aisha were shopping in Vienna thousands of Libyan protesters were gunned down by Gaddafi.
Gaddafi’s son Saaif al-Islam Gaddafi studied in Vienna at the IMADEC University and in the UK, and was a well liked guest in Austrian Society, praised as a reformer. And though left wing liberals now mock against the diseased former leader of the freedom party Jörg Haider for his visits to Libya and his friendship to Saaif al-Islam Gaddafi, it was actually the former Chancellor of Austria Bruno Kreisky (3) that brought the known Terrorist back into the international community.
Saaif Gaddafi visited the Vienna Opera ball, an officiell Event hosted by the Austrian Federal Government, and holds extreme close ties to the SPOE and the Austrian Government as well as to the German Sister SPD.
Spiegel Magazine in Germany says in an article from 2004 on Gaddafi: “After a Libyan court sentenced 5 Bulgarian Nurses and a Palestinian Doctor to death in a case of contaminated Blood preservation’s Brussels pressures the from Terror pope to Lord of Peace transformed President to stop the execution of the Nurses” (From Spiegel Magazine (4): Nachdem ein libysches Gericht in einem Prozess um verseuchte Blutkonserven fünf bulgarische Krankenschwestern und einen palästinensischen Arzt zum Tode verurteilt hat, setzt Brüssel den zum Friedensfürsten gewendeten Terrorpaten unter Druck, eine Vollstreckung des Urteils zu verhindern.)
1) Political acceptance
It was Bruno Kreisky (1911 to 1990), chancellor of Austria from 1970 to 1983 that first made Muammar al-Gaddafi eligible in the international community and held close relations with him. Gaddafi himself calls him “My good friend Bruno”. The very same Bruno Kreisky that also made Yasser Arafat, leader of the Terror organization PLO, eligible and organized him to speak in front of the United Nations.
And let’s not forget Libya’s seat on the United Nations Humans rights council. Because of the acceptance of Terrorist Countries in that council, the United States boycotted them during the Bush administration, but rejoined them with Barrack Obama Fox News reports (5).
So why else do you think that Europe managed to give the slave to the UN and European Socialist/Marxist Puppet Obama the Nobel Peace Prize?
Libya got that seat, against the will of the United States, by a simple blackmail trade designed by the European Union… In order to get weapons and arms deals as well as oil and gas drilling rights for European Companies, especially Austria who was the one supporting Libya.
1) Business connections
It is also confirmed since 2011/03/01 that the Gaddafi Clan has 1.25 Billion U.S. dollars parked in cash in Austrian banks. It is also confirmed that the “Libyan Investment Authority” holds several shareholdings of Austrian Companies such as Wienerberger bricks and more.
The Libyan Central bank holds 5 % shares on the UNICREDIT Bank group, one of the largest banks in Europe with headquarters in Italy and banks throughout Europe, including the largest bank in Austria called “Bank Austria” (another socialist affiliated bank).
The largest Oil drilling company in Libya is OMV. OMV is a former government owned oil and Gas Company partially privatized in the late 90’s keeping the vast majority (25% + 1 share) in the hands of the Austrian Government. OMV is also known as being extremely affiliated with SPOE, the socialist Party of Austria. Two of the past three chancellors from the SPOE started their careers in the OMV.
Austria retains 25% of its Oil and Gas from Libya, and more than 50% of the remaining 75% is coming from Russia.
Austria was never shy to decry human’s rights violations when it came to protesting against the treatment of those “poor misunderstood” Terrorists at Gitmo. In Libya on the other hand Austria kept silent in order not to endanger its economical interests… The Gaddafi’s were well liked business partners.
So it is not a miracle that the current SPOE leadership around SPOE chancellor Faymann took their sweet time to freeze Gaddafi’s accounts and business connections calling on the European Union for guidance.
Or was it the hope of the European Union, as usual, that they would find a consensus on how to deal with Libya and still keep Austria’s business interests? Maybe the EU was hoping to reach some sort of agreement where Austria could “officially” avoid having to freeze the money and properties of the Gaddafi’s and then somehow return it to them when the dust settled.
No matter who will follow Gaddafi or any of the fallen dictators, it will be infiltrated by radical America hating Muslim groups. History has shown us that the naive hope things will turn to the better and democracy will be established is a misjudgment.
The countries are poor and the people are now expecting manna to fall from heaven and that the western world will flood them with money, but as soon as that does not happen radical Muslim Terror organizations like Al Qaeda and their pied-piper’s are going to have a feast.
We are talking about the European Union members here. Al Qaeda in Maghreb makes a living of kidnapping European Tourists and dragging them through the uncontrolled desert between Tunisia and Libya. From the ransom money they finance their Terror attacks on America.
The European Union knows about that and though, officially not negotiating with Terrorists, they had no shame in using Saaif al-Islam Gaddafi’s alleged charity foundation and Saaif himself to negotiate and pay the ransom. The fact is that the European Union finances Terrorism through the backdoor, which they apparently consider the lesser evil.
And the European Union has now the impertinence to put the blame of the northern Africa situation on us the United States. A situation they caused, it was the European opportunists who accepted and snuggled the past centuries with those Terrorists and now when it comes to taking responsibility for their idiotic politics they want to point the finger at us.
But that is normal for them: They want us THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA to solve their problems and once we solve them we should get the hell out of Dodge and leave those Europeans the field of business.
Sure, with Obama that might work, but not with the rest of America. And Obama with the help of God Almighty will soon be history and a one-term president.
Did Obama screw the situation: Definitely.
When I asked on Facebook: Is Obama 1) way over his head on that situation, or b) incompetent or c) too dumb to handle it, well he is none of that.
He knows what he is doing. He is playing that regions economy right into the hands of the European Union and the radical Muslim Terrorists (see my previous column) (7).
