They didn’t go for the Communists first, and then the socialists and the trade unionists, then the Jews, and then him.

No, first they went for the guns or, rather, liberal social democratic Weimar went for the guns.
That made things easier for the Nazis, who then went after free speech, when it couldn’t be defended. Then they could go after the Jews and the rest with impunity. In closing, let us consider Goethe’s words: “Be the anvil or the hammer.” Friends, if and when it comes to it, be the hammer. If It's OK to Punch a Nazi, Can It Be Wrong to Hospitalize a Stalinist?

Your Say

It's not a crime to defend yourself against an assault. Learn the word, then learn how to use it to your advantage. Skip the emergency room, send em straight to the morgue.

"Every chair is a potential assault weapon."

You will fight like you train.

If you don't run a box of 50 rounds down range a week, you will be sorry when the time comes to need to run the important one down the tube.
Train like your life depends on it; it does.

Just trimmed some trees this morning to make a path through the woods for my new impromptu 50-100yd range. Was already mostly clear just had to clean it up a little. This afternoon I'll install 8' fence posts to support the 3/4" plywd backboard. Because I'll be shooting from the elevated south deck on the house the aim is slightly downhill. That might seem to be disadvantageous but it's the angle any attackers will be coming from.

Soon that deck will be littered with 5.56's, etc.
Suck em up with the shop vac and drag em to the recycle shop.
