The modern U.S.A. state was founded upon the values of the Ancient Greek and Roman States. The founding fathers of this newborn state had strong feeling of philhellenism (love for the Greek culture). John Adam's words prove this. "Two republican forces, Athens and Rome, have done greater honor for our species more than all the rest combined. A new country can be created only by a similar government." According to the second amendment of the American Constitution, that was adopted in 1791, the following are written: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed."
The reason that led the government to such a decision was to protect the natural right of the people to defend themselves, to fend of invaders, to destroy tyrannical government and to ensure the existence of a peaceful society. The second amendment is the essence of the Athenian concept of the civilian-hoplite that is called to protect his people from foreign and internal threats. In all of the Greek world, with the exception of Sparta, the hoplites weren't exclusive professionals, but they were formed by the free citizens that fulfilled their duties to their Motherland. This is the right of the Americans that Barrack Obama does everything possible to take away, despite his promises before the elections. Now he has targeted rifles, or as he calls them to scare the people, "assault rifles". A protagonist in the "gun control movement" that promotes the disarmament of the civilians is the billionaire Jew mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg. Of course, he is free to walk around with his many armed bodyguards. The same thing was attempted by the British Empire, before the colonies declared independence.
Lets go to Greece now. Despite the already complicated and strict gun laws, we see that the government tries to make them even stricter. In 2011 we saw the National Guard getting disarmed in the sensitive area of Macedonia. We see the government "bullying" the hunters and those who shoot for sporting reasons. For example, the issuing of gun licenses is illegally and intentional delayed by officers of the Greek Police.
Some will react by saying: "Why do we need guns? They are dangerous, they kill and if someone crazy buys one we will be mourning dead" etc. If someone has decided to kill someone else, he will do it, whether with a gun, a knife, or his bare arms. But in Greece today we have 600.000 illegal AK-47s in circuit, without mentioning the handguns, the improvised guns, and all those that are freely in circuit. And I say freely, because anyone can walk around Omonia (degraded part of Athens) or a gypsy gun and acquire one. There is no way to identify them, and are often used for illegal activities. along with the millions of illegal guns, we have the gangs, the anarchists and the paramilitary of UCC to face. A People's government should legalize the natural right of the People to bear arms!
