TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia tend to be fatalistic about the fate of gun rights in California, New Jersey, New York, Hawaii and the like. Some consider these “slave states” lost causes and advise gun owners therein to GTFO ASAP. Others say that we must fight for their firearms freedom, lest the infringements spread, virus-like, to other states. As for European gun rights . . .
There’s not much debate. Or sympathy. Well, the continent is thousands of miles away. And it’s all about America First these days, apparently. But Europeans are people too. I’m sure some of you encounter Europeans who’ve taken a break from their native statism to visit or work her in The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.
What do you tell them when they ask about your guns? Are they hostile or wistful about your ability to keep and bear arms? Is there anything we can do to help Europeans regain their natural right to armed self-defense? Or should be bunker down and tend to our own ballistic garden?
