’Gun free’ Sweden

Usually when shooting occurs in far away countries like Finland, Germany or the US, Swedish newspapers are filled with warnings about how dangerous it is to allow people to own guns. The very presence of weapons is, according to Swedish journalists, the same as murder.

Despite that you can hardly pick up a paper anymore without reading about someone in Sweden that has got shot. Often it is argued that it is an internal dispute by criminal organizations, and while that may be true to a large degree, it is not always the case.

Yesterday was no exception.

In southern Sweden in the City of Malmö shots was fired at the main police station. Police immediately cordoned off the building. The police suspect that the shot was fired with a low caliber weapon from a distance.

Probably a lone gunman with roots in some African or Muslim country, don’t you think? Because it is not normal for any Swede to hold a grudge against the police so it hast to be some immigrant… Probably mad too, psychotic really, ohoh and on pills, probably didn’t know what he was doing.

Around the same time a man, that since then has been arrested, threatening with a student massacre at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm. In making the threats on an internet forum, the anonymous person stated that they would take a gun to the institute on Monday and shoot as many as possible.

But those sorts of thing can never happen in Sweden were all is fine and no-one have guns. Right?

Well lots of hunters do own guns in Sweden and there are military installations everywhere pretty much open to pick whatever you want from. Not really big on security within the Swedish military. And smuggled in guns from the Baltic States and Russia are very common. Any decent criminal in Sweden owns several guns, which of course is to a large degree ignored by media as well as the powers that be.

The common man, however, is a walking around as an open for all buffet for anyone wanting to rape, murder, mug or bully around. The normal Swedish populace is helplessly unarmed and anyone dumb enough to defend himself will go to jail, most likely far longer than any rapist.

You see, self-defense is illegal in Sweden, guns too. But don’t you worry, there will never be any massacre or shooting in Sweden. Noooo, never gonna happen… So we don’t need armed citizens able to defend themselves because in Sweden we have magical unicorns floating around on pink fluffy clouds and pixies always show up to save the day.

New York Salty goodness goes bye-bye?

Do I even need to comment on this?

MYFOXNY.COM - Some New York City chefs and restaurant owners are taking aim at a bill introduced in the New York Legislature that, if passed, would ban the use of salt in restaurant cooking.

"No owner or operator of a restaurant in this state shall use salt in any form in the preparation of any food for consumption by customers of such restaurant, including food prepared to be consumed on the premises of such restaurant or off of such premises," the bill, A. 10129 , states in part.

The legislation, which Assemblyman Felix Ortiz , D-Brooklyn, introduced on March 5, would fine restaurants $1,000 for each violation.

Taking a turgid shaft up the pooper Spanish style

I’ve posted stuff like this before, but never about Spain. Watch these and then tell me how things are going…

If you don’t want to watch em all, take a look at the last part (3). Even if you take into account siestas and that some of these are holiday homes, it’s still very scary shit…
