As the news last week of the rapid deterioration of the Swedish police system demonstrates, the threat to Native Swedes from immigrant violence is getting more and more pronounced. As discussed, Swedish Police Inspector Lars Alvarsjö, writing in Dagbladet, stated that the Swedish legal system was “near collapse”, because of the overwhelming amount of immigrant violence and gang-activity now prevalent in Sweden. He explained that this was compounded by the massive and fluid nature of immigration to the country, as well as the extremely lax sentencing guidelines that fail to keep criminal immigrants off the streets. “Foreign criminal gangs have now effectively become immune to punishment,” he also stated.
Dagbladet also interviewed Magnus Ranstorp, a terrorism and radicalization researcher at the Swedish National Defense College. Ranstorp articulated that the “situation is a disaster.” He also stated: “Warnings are not enough. There has to be a total collapse of the police before anything will change. We are in a disastrous situation…”
The Swedish government is as hopelessly out of touch with reality as ever, as well as doggedly antagonistic towards the idea of protecting its citizens and cracking down on immigration, immigrant crime, and Islamism. This is causing the situation to become more tenuous by the day.
As a result, we at Europeancivilwar.com are taking this as an opportunity to use Sweden as the first in a series of posts related to legal gun ownership in Europe. Across Western Europe native citizens are being raped, beaten, and murdered by immigrants whom their governments are unwilling to hold to account. Without resorting to hyperbole, it could be said that many Western European governments are in active opposition to the will and the wellbeing of their native citizens.
Sweden arguably represents the most extreme example of this, and as a result, if this post can help even a few Swedes find the information, or the will, they need to arm themselves, it will serve a noble purpose. If it does not succeed in doing that, let it at least reflect the fact that fellow European and Nordic men across the West are focused on the situation in Sweden, and resolved to help in any way we can.
Note: Sweden does not allow gun ownership for self-defense purposes.
How To Buy A Gun In Sweden
To legally own hunting rifles:
1. One must be at least 18 years of age.
2. Have no criminal charges or other concerning items on your record for at least the previous five years.
3. One must pass a Jägarexamen (hunting test)
To legally own handguns and other non-hunting rifles:
1. Be at least 18 years of age
2. Have no criminal charges or other concerning items on your record for at least the previous five years
3. Join a “Shooting Club’
-Getting a membership in such a club can involve passing their training course. They are going to cost between 100-300$ USD on average.
4. Pass an introductory shooting test
5. Pass another, more difficult test at the 6 month mark, called the “Gold Series”. You will need to continue re-passing this test every year.
6. At this point you are allowed to legally own a gun, however, the only gun you are allowed to own at this time is a .22 caliber pistol.
7. To qualify to own any other kind of gun legally, you must participate in 4 competitions in that weapons class to demonstrate your proficiency.
8. At this point you can send your “Activity Card”, which documents the 4 competitions, to the board of your shooting club
9. The club will the give you a note reflecting all of this information, which you will take to the police station. You will give the police this note, along with a receipt for a “Safety Cabinet” (gun-safe) in which you will store your guns. At this point they are supposed to get back to you within 2-3 weeks and give you your “license” to own that gun.
You are permitted to own up to 11 guns at one time in Sweden. This can be all hunting rifles, all handguns or other weapons related to “sports”, or a combination of the two.
Once you have legally purchased a firearm and it is in your possession, it is important to remember that this right can be rescinded at any time. Furthermore, the Swedish police have the right to come to your residence and ask to see the guns and ensure they are properly secured any time they wish.
With the continuing government crackdowns on free speech we are seeing throughout Western Europe as things continue to destabilize, it will be interesting to see if gun rights are also affected. We know that gun sales have increased dramatically in Germany in the last year, and it is likely the same phenomena is occurring in Swede. This is highly relevant, for as gun ownership increases, it represents both a cause and an effect of the de-legitimization of the government, and a precursor to 4th Generation War.
