Our first and most important mission is to stop the European Union from implementing new regulations making the EU citizen’s access to firearms more diffcult.
Do YOU feel free and safe?
We don’t. FIREARMS UNITED has a goal. To unite all gun owners, hunters, sport shooters, gun collectors as well as other gun-friendly passionates, but also to provide you with the knowledge, tools and assistance needed to make changes. Not only do we have the strength and support within the organization, there is a fast-growing network of partners, including individual citizens and institutions which provide us with help in direct dialogue and action.
Help our cause, feel free, feel safe!
Do YOU feel Important?
You are! Because you are our hope to change things! Alone we cannot change anything, but together there is no mountain we can’t climb! Join the initiative and share it with others – take one small step, and together we will make it a step into a better future! In October 2013 we started as a European confederation, but now we have partners on every continent: Asia, Africa, Australia, North and South America. Lots of regulations are made on UN level, so Europe was to small for our union.
Can YOU help?
Yes, you can! And it’s probably easier than you imagine! All you have to do is join our team with faith in a better tommorow. That’s why we are here – to help you helping us to achieve our mutual goal!
OUR OFFICIAL POSITION
The law should regulate access to weapons, but not in order to ban the law-abiding citizens from carrying weapons, but rather to create an advantage for the law-abiding citizens over those that do not adhere to the law. At the same time, we propose defining law-abiding as posing no considerable threat to oneself or public order and safety.
It is impossible nowadays to define being “law abiding” as observing every provision of the law. A maze of regulations in conjunction the degree of criminalization of morally harmless human behaviour, mean it is highly likely that many non-violent/harmless and otherwise responsible people fall foul of a petty victimless offence.
Restrictions should not be so overly restrictive that it makes it impossible to realistically apply for and receive a permit, that would be an abuse of the system. Draconian restrictions against everyone is an assumption that everyone is lawless, mentally unstable and willing to create a threat to others. Such assumptions form the foundations of a totalitarian system.
In our opinion minimal criteria should be written into provisions of law, fulfilment of which would guarantee the right to own firearms, so that on the other hand it is clear, who – as defined by law – is a threat to others and thus barred from owning weapons.
Lawlessness should not be treated equally with lawful behaviour in our society. The preference for law-abiding people over the criminals needs to be written into the provisions of law. We should make access to weapons difficult for those, who consider violence towards others a normal behaviour, and we should facilitate the right for peaceful non-violent people to defend themselves.
