New Anti-Gun laws passed in Poland

Legacy semi-autos from Red domination
An amended law on firearms and explosives has come into force in Poland...change introduced are more stringent requirements for obtaining a licence to carry firearms...a more precise definition of the so-called register of positive prerequisites, whereby law enforcement bodies cannot decide arbitrarily on factors for granting firearm permits. Now, the police is(sic)obliged to grant a licence if the applicant satisfies all mandatory requirements...Additionally, when filing for a permit the candidates must state the purpose of their application and the exact type and number of weapons they intend to use...

More cracking down on legal gun-owners in Europe, but the "good" news is, as in the USA, "may issue" has been converted into "shall issue" in most cases, which, ironically,  is better than what's in place in California, Illinois or New York for example, and the Polaques' don't even have the 2nd Amendment in effect, which tells you something about tyranny vs. liberty in the USA!..How this affects long guns/semi-autos there is not mentioned...(S9)

Rifles stolen from sheriff's vehicles in Marin County

Another story on how guns can end up on the black market...

Authorities are investigating the theft of two semi-automatic rifles and ammunition from Marin County Sheriff's Office vehicles in Fairfax..Sheriff's Lt. Barry Heying says one or more people broke into a locked garage at a ranger station where the vehicles were kept, smashed the vehicles' windows and disabled two locks that held the weapons...Each is valued at $2,000. Sheriff's officials have not identified a suspect.
----Information from: Marin Independent Journal,
Criminals also conduct surveillance...Secure your weapons! You may need to use your pistols to defend against your long guns being taken. Anything less than an armory is not sufficient (and the bandits of the 1920's raided armories and Police stations for weapons)...Only fools think criminals will not find a way to obtain weapons, which is why the good guys need to be armed and maintain the balance of power to protect the people...(S9)

Turks seize Rifles smuggled by Iran to Syrians

Turkish authorities have seized rifles on a Syria-bound Iranian plane...and questioned its seven-man crew, police and judicial sources said Tuesday.
The cargo plane, a civilian Ilyushin, was ordered to land in Diyarbakir, in Turkey's mainly Kurdish southeast, on .. suspicion that it had military or illicit cargo on board.
The plane had declared a cargo of spare car parts, but the inspection resulted also in the discovery of a box containing automatic rifles..The crew was taken to a police station for questioning and argued that the weapons were on board as part of routine security measures, declining to give additional information...authorities confiscated the weapons and were expected to allow the plane to take off en route to Syria...The Iranian embassy in Ankara declined to comment...

In the 1960'/70's it was fashionable and understood that "secret agents" fought a shadow war in defense of the country. In the wake of Vietnam (where US Democrats refused to fund help to South Vietnam, causing them to fall & sparking genocide there and in neighboring Cambodian "killing fields") laws were enacted by do-gooding fools, essentially neutering CIA operations. Well, other countries have not done the same, and the efficient structure of the Shah's SAVAK was taken over by the Islamic fanatic Mullah's in Iran, and have continued spy-craft worldwide, notably against US forces by supplying IED mines that have killed and maimed scores of US troops in the middle east but never mentioned by US news media despite the evidence. Iranian "James Bonds" continue to work, this rifle smuggling being a routine example, again ignored by western media for what it really is, too lazy or politically correct to connect the dots. Good men (the real "007's" & "Ruck Snuffies") continue to die due to "political correctness" (Die Kerryites!!) while our agents have to work with both hands tied behind their backs (and nobody cares except those "in the know")...(S9)

City board OKs bids for (AR-15) police patrol rifles

Another local Police agency gets AR-15 Pattern rifles for it's officers. What is interesting here is some of the comments attached to this story. Apparently, it is assumed the local PD are essentially KKK members in uniform, shades of the 1960's...One comment by local resident "Blueprint" stated: "This place is crazy... Our police department doesn't need rifles.. there has not been any situation @ all that would cause them to need AR-15's... they will only pull those guns to intimidate the black ppl in this town..the criminals in this town only get caught with handguns... Well when they kill some1, I hope that persons family bankrupts this good old boy (racist) town"...Seems like "Blueprint" has issues, but on the other hand, TN is the original home of the KKK and it would be unrealistic to assume there are not malicious racist scum as a percentage of the population there. Stupid politics aside, crime and criminals know no boundaries, and the Cops need all the edge they can get to protect the citizens from the "Rainbow Coalition of Criminal Activity", no matter in TN, Detroit, Washington DC, Los Angeles, New Orleans or NYC, etc. True Cops know there is no "racial profiling", only "criminal profiling" that really matters. If you can't hang with that concept, Officer of the Law, you need to turn in your badge...(S9)

Police are finalizing the steps to equip patrol officers with semi-automatic carbine rifles...Little Rock Chief of Police Stuart Thomas said that by April 4, department policies will allow officers to furnish the weapons that would ride along with them as they patrol their beats...the only Little Rock officers currently allowed to carry rifles are SWAT members, according to Little Rock police spokesman Lt. Terry Hastings ...

So another agency upgrades their Officers to use AR pattern rifles. There is no info as to if they are semi-automatics or full-automatic machine-guns (i.e. "M-16"s) being chosen for this role...(S9)

NRA Response To President Obama's Op-ed on Gun Laws

The Arizona Star published an op-ed from President Barack Obama that discussed his belief that we should seek “agreement on gun reforms.” Those “agreements” would almost certainly include new restrictions on the Second Amendment rights of the American people that are unneeded and unacceptable for law-abiding gun owners.
Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre and NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox responded to the President in a letter delivered to the White House on March 14...

130 M-16's, Machineguns, etc; Stolen from Army Arsenal/Spain Gun Raid

A large number of weapons including 130 M16 assault rifles have been missing from an army depot of Thanarat Camp at the army's Infantry Center in Pran Buri District of southern Prachuap Khiri Khan province. According to Pran Buri police, some 130 M16s, 10 rocket propelled grenade (RPG) launchers, 5 M79 grenade launchers, 10 m- 11 pistols, 4 M60 machineguns, 4 M249 mini-light machineguns and a 60-mm mortar were reported missing from the arsenal. First Infantry Battalion commander Lt-Col Manorot Suthisamdaeng found the weapons were missing after conducting a check on the arsenal...

Outrageous. Another example of how firearms end up diverted into questionable hands. My take on this is that someone was paid off to divert these weapons most likely to the Shan "Dope" Army, originally lost KMT  ('Quo Minh Tang" Anti-Communist) fighters, abandoned after WW2 (1945),  formed a drug Cartel/Militia notoriously known for using child soldiers, but that's just my own theory. Those M-16 versions of the AR-15 are Vietnam era stock the USA provided SEATO allies, of which the Thais are part. Let's call this movie "Indochina: The madness continues"...(S9)
Also, another example:
Rifles, handguns snatched in Spain armoury raid

Spain once had a thriving commercial arms business, but since long established firms like ASTRA went out of business, and the fascist/socialist elements have emerged in the wake of waning ETA terrorist attacks supplanted by cowardly responses to Islamic terrorist attacks; an anti-gun culture has been imposed upon law-abiding Spaniards, inhibiting them from self-defense. One can only speculate how this highly organized caper factors into the overall situation, but it is certain that when you close off all legal avenues, this is what you end up with...(S9)
