On this day, only a few years ago (February 2, 2013), America lost a great warrior and hero. RIP Chris Kyle. You will never be forgotten!
“It was my duty to shoot the enemy, and I don’t regret it. My regrets are for the people I couldn’t save: Marines, soldiers, buddies. I’m not naive, and I don’t romanticize war. The worst moments of my life have come as a SEAL. But I can stand before God with a clear conscience about doing my job.”�
News text below from Firearms United… The cat is out of the bag now…
New attempt (16.11.2016!) by the EU commission to ban specifically:
Civilian firearms of “AR 15 family”, also derivates
Civilian firearms of “AK47 family”, also derivates
ALL detachable magazines above 10 rounds (also for handguns, repeating-firearms, rimfires etc.)
Strong regulation of magazines and semi-automatic firearms
Stricest evaluation of exemptions
Immediate decision on bans, since “EU citizens” demand more protection!
Sourced from EU commission document, 16. November 2016, published on Website of Austrian Parliament: Link

Following two trilogue meetings, the co-legislators were still unable to agree on the revision of the Firearms Directive. These negotiations must be unblocked to take military grade assault weapons off the streets including those converted to semi-automatic use. The Commission’s position is clear that semi-automatic assault weapons derived from the “AK 47 Kalashnikov family” and the “AR 15 family” should be banned for civilian use given that they were designed for military use. Magazine sizes for short and long firearms should be limitedto 10 rounds and should be subject to authorization and stringent checks and any derogation should be strictly limited and tightly controlled. EU citizens expect swift progress in this area to ensure their protection, so we must reach agreement before the end of 2016 on this key piece of legislation. In parallel, the Commission will launch a renewed push to clamp down on the illegal firearms trade including at the EU/Western Balkans Justice and Home Affairs Ministers’ Conference on 15-16 December.
It seems that the pressure is on now, and commission is getting bad publicity and crying about “delayed” firearms directive. However, in this the commission only has itself to blame, due to poorly drafted proposal, which they have not been able to this date, provide any justification for.
That should be any likening of just a little further thinking. To ban legal weapons because it is supposed to be terrorism, while millions of illegal weapons are in circulation and in the hands of citizens who have just not passed through various security checks, is not only stupid but robbing the people.
We hardly think that at a prohibited the legal owners are disarmed. The EU is now a worse krake than so many a company …
Our thanks to Fritz Friedrich Gepperth for the clear words against this madness
