USA: Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week October 22-26

A Student’s Guide to Hosting Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week

October 22-26, 2007

During the week of October 22-26, 2007, the nation will be rocked by the biggest conservative campus protest ever – Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week, a wake-up call for Americans on 200 university and college campuses.

The purpose of this protest is as simple as it is crucial: to confront the two Big Lies of the political left: that George Bush created the war on terror and that Global Warming is a greater danger to Americans than the terrorist threat. Nothing could be more politically incorrect than to point this out. But nothing could be more important for American students to hear. In the face of the greatest danger Americans have ever confronted, the academic left has mobilized to create sympathy for the enemy and to fight anyone who rallies Americans to defend themselves. According to the academic left, anyone who links Islamic radicalism to the war on terror is an “Islamophobe.” According to the academic left, the Islamo-fascists hate us not because we are tolerant and free, but because we are “oppressors.”

Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week is a national effort to oppose these lies and to rally American students to defend their country.

Last Day for Swedish Firearms Amnesty

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , — entry @ 15:17PM

Today, Thursday May 31st, is the last day of the Swedish Weapons Amnesty. During the three months that the amnesty has been going on, the police in the Västra Götalands region has gotten around 2000 weapons that have been handed in anonymously.

The weapon amnesty began in March. The thought behind the amnesty is that the number of illegal weapons in the country will decrease. Without the risk of being charged with illegal possession of firearms it has been possible to just go to the police and hand in weapons.

-With the help of the weapon amnesty we can gather up illegal weapons. A lot o these weapons have for example been stolen from homes where the person has passed away, says Ingemar Nilsson, police commissioner in Västra Götaland.

Sweden does have a large amount of weapons, many active hunters and a great deal of weapons passed down through generations. In the Västra Götalands region there are 86 000 holders of weapon licenses and 217 600 registered weapons. Every year 2200 weapons are being reported stolen or misplaced throughout the country.

The first time that Sweden had a weapon amnesty was in 1993 and then the police in the Västra Götaland collected2121 weapons and parts of weapons and 2 tons of ammunitions.

This year it has been a bit slower. The police estimate a lesser amount of weapons, but more ammunition.

Exactly how many weapons have been handed in is still unclear. On June 10th they will have completed the count. After that the results are to be reported to the government.

Among the weapons handed in to the police in Västra Götaland there is everything from historical weapons to modern automatic weapons. All weapons that have been handed in that no one makes a claim for (some of them have been stolen and will be given back to the rightful owner if possible) end up at the governments criminal technicians laboratory where they will be destroyed.
