Swedish Minister of Interior was fired yesterday – and You should be happy about it!

Swedish Minister of Interior Anders Ygeman [1] was fired yesterday – and You should be happy about it!

But why should you care?

Well, mr Ygeman has been rabid anti-gunner and has used his favourite phrase “We must consider public safety!” to hammer law abiding citizens with further restrictions on legal gun ownership and has alledgedly worked hard to hammer through further restrictions from EU level down to the member states.

Actually “We must consider public safety!” were the Anders Ygeman’s famous words as he allowed the civil servants Lars Hänninger and Peter Thorsell, two now well known individuals in the gun community, ignore the mandate given to them by the Swedish Parliament in the negotiations in GENVAL regarding the EU’s Firearms Directive and opted for even harder restrictions for law abiding citizens.

Luckily for us, these words took another meaning when the scandal regarding the Swedish Transport Agency was unveiled. Even though Minister of Interior Ygeman had knowledge about the potentially biggest security breech in Swedish history he failed to inform the Prime minister about it, triggering a major political crisis as the political opposition announced that they would file a vote of non-confidence.

This resulted the political downfall of Mr Ygeman as he was fired from his position as Minister of Interior by Prime minister Stefan Löfvén, much to the rejoicement of law abiding Swedish gun owners.

As we all know, according to statistics, the more firearms there are in circulation in the hands of the law abiding citizens, the more safe the society is and the less crime there is. However, this must have been the wrong kind of “public safety” for mr Ygeman.

Now, get a bottle of champagne (or your favourite beverage) and raise a toast to the downfall of Mr Ygeman.

Raise your class to the public safety!

PS – According to the news he will still receive 1,5 million Swedish crowns as a severance package, and a seat in the next cabinet, should his party win the election.

Czech minister wants to guarantee the right to keep and bear arms

A constitutional amendment would enable Czechs to acquire and possess a gun for security purposes. This is a partial response to the proposed EU Firearms Directive. EURACTIV Czech Republic reports.

Here some snippets which refer to Brussels’ Firearms Directive:

Almost all of the Czech MEPs have already expressed their negative position to the Firearms Directive.

They are also preparing new amendments to the proposal and convincing other MEPs to vote against at plenary session scheduled on 14 March. Czech ANO 2011 MEP Pavel Telička, vice-president of ALDE, has already announced that his faction will not support the Firearms Directive.

“There is a rare consensus among Czech MEPs on this matter with only one exception,” Czech Křesťanská a demokratická unie MEP Tomáš Zdechovský (EPP) said.

“There are still some provisions full of contradiction in the proposal such as restricting the rights of legal owners, groundless limits for magazines capacity and also some sanctions and obligations for sport-shooters,” EURACTIV.cz was told by Czech MEP Dita Charanzová (ALDE) who is the vice-president of IMCO.
