Tonight I blundered upon some horrific Russian coverage of the terrorist attack on C-Span. (1)
It tore at one's heart to see those little children murdered by the "religion of peace" thugs.
The Russian reporter said something that was interesting. She said when the terrorists detonated the bombs and started firing upon the fleeing hostages, local residents immediatey returned fire. Then the Russian special forces were forced to finish the grisly work of taking out the terrorists because they had no choice once the scum perps started killing the hostages.
So it seems Russsian citizens do have the right to keep arms. The wife and I saw sporting rifles and even single barrel shotguns in the hands of men wearing working clothes.
Here is the email address of the Russian embassy if anyone should like to offer sympathy to the Russian people during this horrible time.
I already e-mailed the consulate. I didn't say anything about politics, i.e. now that you can empathize you can support what we're doing. I just told them I prayed for the families of the victims. I assume they understand the rest.
Thanks for the address.
