Since the WSJ has the story behind a pay-wall… Austria Stops Criticizing Hungary’s Border Fence, Builds Own Border Fence | Frontpage Mag
Austria has invoked its intention to beef up border security before but until now carefully avoided the word fence. That changed on Wednesday when Austrian Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner told public ORF radio “of course it’s about a fence, but not just that, it’s also about fortified structures in the border crossing areas.”
It wasn’t too long ago, that the EU, the UN, Mexico and everyone and their brother was condemning the US for plans to increase border security. Now they are building frontier security systems reminiscent of the Cold War. I wonder when the UN will get around to condemning them.
And Austrians are buying shotguns and other long-guns like there is no tomorrow.
Gun dealers report that it is women driving the sales rush. This year alone, police say 70,000 guns have been sold.
‘Virtually all shotguns are currently sold out, because you need no permit for them’, said Thomas Ortner, spokesman for an arms dealer in Upper Austria.
Rifles are also selling out, but you need a permit. And the classes to own handguns – one place that had been holding classes every 5 weeks are now holed thing weekly.
If this turns ugly, it has the potential to turn really ugly. As someone said…
The Euros have a proven zero-to-jackboots time lower than just about anybody on the planet. The migrant muzzies might want to think about what happens when they get Hans and Pierre feeling good and scared and backed into a corner.
The last time the Jerries had a populist demagogue with bad hair campaigning on a nationalist platform, he was no Donald Trump.
