Norway has strict gun laws on the books and the Civilian Disarmament Industry likes to hold them up as an example, claiming that’s a place that gun control works.
In the town of Kongsberg, southwest of Oslo, Norway’s capital, someone decided to prove that gun control doesn’t stop people who want to kill others.
As the AP reports . . .
A man armed with a bow fired arrows at shoppers in a small Norwegian town Wednesday, killing five people before he was arrested, authorities said.
The police chief in the community of Kongsberg, near the capital of Oslo, said there was “a confrontation” between officers and the assailant, but he did not elaborate. Two other people were wounded and hospitalized in intensive care, including an officer who was off duty and inside the shop where the attack took place, police said.
“The man who carried out the act has been arrested by the police, and there is no active search for more people. Based on the information we have, there is one person behind this,” Police Chief Oeyving Aas said.
You know what would have stopped this? An armed citizenry legally carrying firearms. Time after time, it’s been proven that gun control laws only hurt the law-abiding. Criminals will break the law.
The government’s monopoly on the use of force does little to protect individuals. Law enforcement is virtually always reactionary and they can’t prevent attacks from happening. Disarming the public via gun control leaves individuals vulnerable to the evil and the insane.
In the end, bad people will continue to do bad things and good people will be left defenseless anywhere civilian disarmament is the law.
