Small Arms Sales Skyrocket In Germany In Reaction To Refugee Attacks

Tyler Durden's picture




 

As we’ve documented on a number of occasions over the past three or so months, Germans have a newfound love for pepper spray.

In November, we noted that frightened Germans fearing a “foreign invasion” from the Mid-East, were rushing to stock up on what amounts to migrant-be-gone aerosol just in case a refugee should get any designs on trying to get too close.

"There is fear" explains Kai Prase, managing director of DEF-TEC Defense Technology GmbH in Frankfurt, one of the major producers of repellents. "For the past six to seven weeks we have been practically sold out."

Yes, “there is fear”, and that fear only grew after New Year’s Eve when dozens of women reported being sexually assaulted by “gangs” of drunken "Arabs" in Cologne, among other cities.

The New Year’s incidents triggered even more interest in deterrent technology and before you knew it, Germans were Googling “pepper spray” like there was no tomorrow:

Of course, as we noted earlier this month, pepper spray isn’t much good against a Kalashnikov and besides, mace doesn’t sound like nearly as much fun as a “non-lethal gas pistol,” a replica firearm that shoots tear gas cartridges. 

"People no longer feel safe, otherwise they would not be buying so many products here," a seller in North-Rhine Westphalia told Deutsche Welle who adds that the seller, like many of his colleagues, has been moving "an average of three times as many alarm, gas, and signal guns as he was prior to the attacks that took place in Cologne on New Year's Eve." 

Although you can't go out and buy an AK-47 in Germany, you can obtain a so-called "small arms permit", which gives you the right to own all sorts of fun things like the aforementioned gas pistol. For those who aren't familiar with the weapon, here's a helpful video (note the 1:57 mark when we get a look at "a person running with a... a club at a person who draws and fires on them"): 

There you go. You can shoot someone in the face and not kill them as long as you "have a spotless record " when you apply for the permit.

"There has been an increase of at least 1,000 percent or more in Google search queries for gun permits since January," Felix Beilharz, a social media expert from Cologne told DW.

And that's not all.

Germans are also getting more interested in self defense courses. "Currently, those offering self-defense courses are also profiting from the concerns and fears of many German citizens. Many such courses are booked out for the next several weeks - that was not the case a year ago," DW says.

"Several social media entries tagged with #Koelnbhf (Cologne train station) were advertising “efficient martial arts training," RT adds.

Here's a tweet that pretty much sums up the mood in Germany:

So perhaps Anders Rasmussen - the prevention specialist at the Danish Crime Prevention Council who we mocked earlier today - was correct to say that a move to make non-lethal deterrents legal "may quickly develop into a sort of armed competition between civilians," as there does indeed appear to be a non-lethal arms race going on in Germany.

And just like that, Angela Merkel's move to take in 1.1 million asylum seekers has turned the streets of Germany into the Wild West, where every man, woman, and child is carrying some manner of weapon.

The fine for pepper spraying a would-be assailant in Denmark is 500 kroner. Given the preponderance of Danes who are sneaking away to Germany to buy non-lethal weapons, we wonder what the penalty is for shooting an attacker in the face with a tear gas cartridge at point blank range.

For the ladies: "sticky" hand grenades would work great. Arrange them on your belt so they hang down over those "attractive parts". Once somebody goes for the cheesecake, the grenade sticks to their hand, the pin stays behind. Remember to move away quickly when you hear that "ping" noise.

The German women better learn how to protect themselves since the majority of their  'men' are post modern, effeminate euro wimps.

Notice how the Russian men responded, after a 13 year old girl was raped by refugee creeps.  Approximately 120 russians visited the refugee centre and gave them all  lesson they will never forget.

I watched almost all of that video. Wow. I am often critical of the direction this country is going, and I plan to continue to be, but I cannot imagine that stupid tear gas gun being the best I can buy. At least here I can carry a real gun pretty much a anywhere without concern of being harassed by the Gestapo.

That dumb video also shot in zero wind. Try that shit on even a breast day and see where it gets you. He also suggested firing it from inside our car. Good luck driving. Same with firing it in a house. Firing against Te wind will have most of that hitting you, where my 9mm won't be affected by such things.

I've already written fairly extensively on self defense, weapons, etc. on ZH so I'm going to skip over that and get to an equally important topic.  As you may have heard before, your brain is your greatest weapon and first line of defense in any situation.

I've been trying to put myself in the mind of these Muslim "immigrants".  What motivates them?  Yeah sure, who gives a shit, right?  They're animals.  Well, even animals behave as they do for reasons.  If you don't understand them you can't defend effectively against them.  (Or hunt them effectively.)

Most animals, even ones that are very deadly to humans usually AVOID humans.  Why?  Because they are afraid of us.  They may not consciously know why but they know we are dangerous beyond our modest physical presence.  We're sneaky.  We sometimes hunt in groups.  We lay traps.  We employ tools that multiply our lethality even to very large, powerful creatures.

You feeling me on this yet?

OK, so do "Muslim immigrants" fear westerners who let them enter their countries?  Clearly not.  Do they appreciate the sanctuary they have been given?  No more than letting wild wolves or feral cats into your house and feeding them.  Far from being appreciative, they see this as a sign of weakness.  I believe they see it as a sign that western societies have surrendered and they are coming in as the first wave of conquerors.  They are basically raping and pillaging- classical "conquering" behavior in newly claimed lands for tribal-level humans over the ages.

The solution to this I won't post on ZH because I'm afraid it would shock and offend even those not generally prone to shock or offense, but suffice it to say some very stark and very public examples must be made to temper their apparently widespread belief that they are arriving as "conquerors" in this new land.  This has to register at an emotional and ego-deflating level.  It should not be pretty, politically correct, rational or humane.  It needs to be sufficient to change behavior at a level of shock sufficent to engage their cognitive ability to restrain further violent beavior out of a need for self-preservation.  

Down-vote if you must.

"I believe they see it as a sign that western societies have surrendered and they are coming in as the first wave of conquerors"

not quite: Their viewpoint seems similar to the inexplicable pride shown by newly-arrived Mexicans in SoCal.

It's human "pride" at work. "I didn't run away from a loser country! I am returning as a proud Aztec/Latino warrior to my ancestral homeland of Alta California!!" (mexico 'owned' California for all of 26 years but no matter)

Similarly, these sorry Muslim peasants talk about a new Muslim Caliphate covering Europe and their superior culture NOT about how they had to skedaddle from their failed 3rd world hell-holes.

But in both cases, these 'proud' 3rd world pissants had nothing to do it. They've been allowed in by Marxist Euro-quislings working toward a godless, genderless, borderless, traditionless, post-human world pictured in John Lennon's "Imagine" in theory; but working toward the creation of a Global Corporate Plantation State ruled by the same 1%ers calling the shots now in the Western 'democracies', in actuality....the New World Order

These Arab/N. African migrants didn't just suddenly discover they could walk in.   Europe has armies and border guards.   Suddenly, and for reasons unknown to me, a large group was ORGANIZED and given money to come in.  Someone in Europe or the USA did this

Once word got back to every M.E. and African shithole that Europe was opening its doors, the race was on.

So want to get violent?  FIRST get violent against those who organized this.

No. Communists paid for the border guards until 1990. Westerners have no border guards simply a few policemen. The Inner-German border was more secure than the external EU border. Merkel squeezed Greece and they cut their spending on border guards and Turkey set out to destabilise Greece by sluicing people through.

Europe was safer when the USSR had its troops in Berlin

For any animal to accept it's new, regulated surroundings it requires two basic things:

1.  A feeling that it is isolated.

2.  It is provided with clear feedback on behavior that wil be rewarded and behavior that will be punished.

In short, there is no "alternate" place it can go, no enclave to which it can retreat to seek an alternate set of rewards/punishments.

Good thoughts and good post, ND. You say: "The solution to this I won't post..."

I will: Genocide. The rather Final Solution.

"A Civilization is a dominant community that imposes its beliefs upon all other communities by violence, which must involve the use of genocide; so any community that recoils from inflicting genocide will suffer genocide."

       --Philip Atkinson  http://www.ourcivilisation.com/

And it's going to get called Fascism/Racism. I don't care anymore. Hell, I just agree and amplify. Chicks love Fash Game, so convert 'em.

Even Mises considered Fascism an emergency expedient. When you need a tourniquet on your leg--as uncomfortable and dangerous as those things can be--you'll damn well will die without one.

"It cannot be denied that Fascism and similar movements aimed at the establishment of dictatorships are full of the best intentions and that their intervention has for the moment saved European civilization. The merit that Fascism has thereby won for itself will live on eternally in history. But though its policy has brought salvation for the moment, it is not of the kind which could promise continued success. Fascism was an emergency makeshift."

     --Ludwig von Mises, Liberalism (1927)

I am trying to find the middle ground between pacifistic permissiveness and genocide, actually.  I am trying to explore a rational path to assimilation of a massive influx of culturally incompatible immigrants with minimal bloodshed and maximum effectiveness.  The thing that must be extinguished is their previous cultural identity.  And this must be done in a very public, very unambiguous way.  Will this require some of them die to achieve this?  Yes.  But all other alternatives require even higher body count.  

One culture must assert dominance.  And there is a cost to that.  But the cost is less than trying to maintain the fiction that they can coexist side-by-side.

rational path to assimilation

It's possible, with Irish or Italians. Not Saharan/Arabian Muslims.

 

Assimilation to the host nation’s way of life can work, but only under very strict preconditions:

  1.   the immigrants are not genetically and culturally distant from the native population into which they are assimilating.
  2.   the number of immigrants don’t exceed a threshold above which their natural born racial characteristics can’t be contained and redirected into expressions more compatible with the host nation’s culture.
  3.   the host nation culture has the self-confidence and pride of place to demand total acquiescence to its norms from the arriving immigrants.

Western nations are currently failing on all three assimilation preconditions: Post-1965 immigrants are...

Spot on. In a crowd, where the woman is surrounded by horny rapefugees pressed right up against her, IF she somehow manages to retain control of the pepper spray canister and spray it, she herself will be enveloped in the spray, and she'll be blinded just when she needs her full faculties to get the hell outta there.

Pepper spray/mace won't work because these rapists are running in packs.

 

If you ever watch real footage of real shootings into a crowd, it is very, very obvious: people jackrabbit outta there as soon as the first shot is fired. So much so that statistically, inner city gunfights (the majority of gun violence in the USA) involve no more than 3 shots (there is no-one left to shoot at after 3 shots, and even the attacker who fired the first shot is running away).

One gunshot would break up a crowd of 1000 rapefugees pretty quickly, even if none of them are actually struck.

?Blank gun or starter pistol?

 

Actually in the crowded by refuges scenario, you CAN hurt/kill someone with a blank gun (if they are close enough).

 

Ladies, put it into their crotch and fire.  Yeah, that will persuade them to leave you alone. the other thugs see their buddy get "shot" in the groin with the loud noise, flash, etc. & they' re gone.  Or at least they'll be too busy covering their own crotch with their hands that they are ineffective. Ladies, you want to get rid of a crowd of thugs? Call one in close, shoot him in the balls, NOBODY will come to help that guy.  Watch the male reaction when an athlete gets hit in the 'nads- its involuntary. We can't help but stop and fold up at least a little. I'll bet it works best on an out of control male crowd/ rapist/ crotch grabbers.  They are already thinking about their dicks.

 

Wow, think about it.  See a bad crowd? Put the blank gun in your hand (Hey, why not one in each hand?) and hold it low as if you're in your typical stride/ walk. Practice the art of placing and firing your shot without a break in stride or any reaction.  They won't be able to pin you on video if it is a crowded scene. "No officer, I was just walking by."

Tear gas...hmm.And pepper spray. Not really something to rely on. I have begun my preparations. I am European and never walk unarmed.

Soon getting my semiautomatic.

For mild and gentle behavioural correction  I will apply telescopic steel baton (the Totschläger of fame) and some other...means...at my disposal.

For more strict disciplination it´firearms. And you can get them if you know how to.

And yes I have training and am responsible. Two years military training. Infantry. Ranger style but with also heavy weapons.

Any way you model these scenarios you arrive at the same conclusion. Violence.

It will erupt when these hordes are forcibly relocated. Or it will erupt when their assets are seized and they are cut off the welfare system.

However - there´s no alternatives to these changes.

No country can have an increasing and violent Free Shit Army.
