For those of us fighting for our traditional rights, the US 2nd Amendment is a rare light in an ever darkening room. Governments will use the excuse of trying to protect the people from maniacs and crime, but are in reality, it is the bureaucrats protecting their power and position. In all cases where guns are banned, gun crime continues and often increases. As for maniacs, be it nuts with cars (NYC, Chapel Hill NC), swords (Japan), knives (China) or home made bombs (everywhere), insane people strike. They throw acid (Pakistan, UK), they throw fire bombs (France), they attack. What is worse, is, that the best way to stop a maniac is not psychology or jail or "talking to them", it is a bullet in the head, that is why they are a maniac, because they are incapable of living in reality or stopping themselves. (emphasis added - SiG)Today, Russians are still under the thumb of a strongman. They've replaced a tyrannical communist government with a tyrannical oligarchy. Conditions are marginally better for people, but incredibly better for the well-connected. Pravda isn't officially unamerican, but practically, the stories on Pravda blame a lot on the US. The occasional honest reporting like this is worth keeping an eye on.

While Waiting for Piers Morgan to Self-Deport
While sitting around waiting for Piers Morgan to self-deport because we reject his fantasy-based gun control ideas, Around O-Town Orlando links to an article originally on Pravda. Not the New York Times, the real one: Pravda.Ru - Americans, Never Give Up Your Guns. Complete with charmingly bad translation in places.
