Normally, conservatives would fight any gun ban tooth and nail to the death, but Austria has come up with one that we should all get behind, but liberals all around the world will be crying racism and bloody murder. The Austrians will become deplorables in their eyes and the liberals will insist that the UN step in and stop the new ban. You see, the new gun ban only affects refugees and other migrants. The Austrians recognize the danger that liberals pretend doesn’t exist, even after countless terror attacks by migrants,
The new law would also make it easier for cops to own guns. They will be able to buy any handgun up to a 9 mm without getting a special private license. The new law is a finger in the eye of the European Union that insists that no country within the EU can scrutinize those who enter their countries. Countries are expected to allow them in and to act any way they please. Germany, France and Sweden have paid heavy prices for that attitude.
All in all, Austria was doing exactly what many in the United States hoped future President Donald Trump would do: weakening gun-control laws for rightful citizens but strengthening them for those who were in the country either illegally or on a temporary basis.
The nation was also sending a clear message to the European Union, which has a history of trying to force member states to coddle migrants and asylum seekers. But by no means was this the first time that Austria had taken a strong position against the EU.
In October, the country’s interior minister “called for more and swifter deportations of failed asylum seekers,” as reported at the time by Russia’s Sputnik news agency, despite the EU having threatened to impose stiff financial penalties on nations refusing to accept refugees.
Apparently, not every member state planned to follow the EU’s draconian demands, the potential repercussions notwithstanding. Good.
