Self-Defense Tip 93 Terror and Chutzpah

They had only their bare hands against a terrorist’s assault rifle, a pistol, and a blade — because of France’s Hitlerian weapon-control laws

French president François Hollande with men who fought a terrorist on a train from Amsterdam to Paris
“You risked your lives to defend an idea, an idea of liberty, of freedom,” French president François Hollande told four of the six men who fought the terrorist, at a ceremony held at the Elysee Palace in Paris.

“Since Friday, the entire world admires your courage, your sangfroid, your spirit of solidarity,” he said. “This is what allowed you to, with bare hands — your bare hands — to subdue an armed man. This must be an example for all and a source of inspiration.”

Now, about the French president’s proclamation that they “risked [their] lives to defend an idea, an idea of liberty, of freedom”: They didn’t risk their lives to defend France’s phony idea of freedom* — they defended their lives even though the French state denied them free people’s means of doing so.

The chutzpah of that whole speech about defending “an idea of liberty, of freedom” with “bare hands”! They had only their bare hands against an assault rifle, a pistol, and a blade because the French government, like most European governments, made it illegal for civilians to carry weapons. European governments deny people their natural human right to means of self-defense — in Western Europe by keeping National Socialist (Hitlerian) weapon-control laws, and in Central and Eastern Europe by keeping Scientific Socialist (Soviet) laws restricting gun ownership.

While politicians speak terrorists learn. The next attack will be prepared better but the targets (you) will still be disarmed.

There is not even real freedom of speech in France. See
