First to the OPs claim of the make up of the refugees are 75% unaccompanied males, this is false.


UNHCR’s data show that 50.5 percent of refugees are women. Females age 18 to 59 make up 23.9 percent of the refugees, while males in that age group make up 21.8 percent.
Even younger males — age 12 to 17 — represent 6.5 percent of refugees, while females that age are 6.1 percent. The majority of refugees — 51.1 percent — are under age 17, including 38.5 percent who are younger than 12 years old.

Second, a terror group like ISIS with money would not waste time sneaking with refugees they would just fake paper and fly in like every terrorist has done since the 1970s.

And third if terrorist really were coming, shot guns are not much use against car bombs or suicide bombers.


Looks like the stats have changed a bit in the last few weeks.... it is 65% men now, 14% Women, and 20% children. This is directly from the UNHCR.

You are quoting the UNHCR stats but not using their page but instead some BS fact-check web page with is clearly wrong?

data.unhcr.org...


The last post on this on ATS a few weeks ago (September 8th):

www.abovetopsecret.com...

72% of refugees fleeing war and oppression are men

The breakdown is
72% men
13% women
15% children

From what I read in the articles, I don't think the people who buy all those guns and other measures of self defense are afraid of terrorists but rather 'normal' criminals.

I would hazard a guess that these women are afraid of being raped in their own homes. And with good reason I think.

AN AR15 is not an automatic weapon either.
Then why don't you actually SPEAK of that which you know and get BACK to the thread we are currently discussing.
I can't explain America to you because you aren't one.I suggest we discuss WHAT IS happening and NOT your opinion about firerams or what you think we are afraid of.
LET'S just say 2 wars required that same attitude and the world is intact because of it.

AR15 is semi-auto and if I was a woman in central Europe I would be keen to get my hands on one with an open carry license...

I'm in the UK so we are yet to feel the full affects of this crisis but give it time. All these people screaming racism will be eating their words very soon.

Yea sure you lot saved the world! and you are right i really should stick to the subject, talking guns to a gunlover is like
arguing religion with a muslim impossible to move a inch in any direction, automatic/semi automatic the difference is huge i see that, and i really should not have a opinion on usa because having opinions on topics that you are far removed from are your previleg only. i guess thats why you are here commenting on a tread about what happens in austria.
using childish "at best" arguments like "a AR15 can handle that" good job cowboy.

I never stated WE EXCLUSIVELY saved anything ,without the US the Nazis would have OWNED Europe.
WE all worked together in both conflicts and we BOTH needed to do so.
WHO is the childish one resorting to blanket insults?
WHO is FAILING to address the real issue?
The thread states they are reacting to an influx of violent refugees and you get all whinny about the US and guns ,GET over yourself.

The Swedish police recently released a map of 55 areas where they publicly admit to having surrendered control to the criminal gangs. These areas have long had problems with mailmen, fire trucks and ambulances being attacked when trying to enter, which has led to them routinely requesting police escort. Now it’s the police being attacked outright. A new trend is also to map out police homes and families to intimidate and discourage policework, police say.

Here in Portugal we have had places like that for some decades, the common factor in all of those was that they made up with poor people, usually relocated from other places (in one case for the construction of a bridge) and with huge unemployment problems, no differences in religion involved.

Hey, you'll ruin their fearmongering. They intentionally leave out criminal gangs, the Camorra, and other organized crime organizations that terrorize European businesses & communities. It's much easier to blame Muslims for all of their perceived problems when they're too scared to speak on the actual threats in those neighborhoods.

And, something that has been left out of the news, there are probably organized groups trying to get people to specific countries for their own interests, in the same way there are people getting money to get them in Europe.

How is a gun rights meeting in Belgium any kind of inclination that European citizens are arming up for self defence?

“I just returned from a gun rights meeting in Belgium, and I can attest that all over Europe people now want the means to defend themselves,” Gottlieb told WND. “Self-defense is no longer a dirty word. In countries like Austria, where it is still legal to own a firearm, gun sales are at record levels. I can tell you first-hand that people in Europe now wish they had a Second Amendment.”


Surely the majority of people at that meet would have been gun owners/advocates and admirers?

I can tell you first-hand that anyone seeking a firearm for self-defence in Western Europe would be a very suspect person to the authorities. But, that being said... Anyone can spout BS.

Why are so many people against self defense?

I mean do you people really want to die that badly?

They don't need arms what they need is to force their governments to make laws to protect the citizens.

That is what they need to do.

That depends on what country you're talking about, situations are different from country to country.

Good on the ladies of Austria! They should be able to protect themselves and it seems they are using their right to do so.

I can only say that I find it dangerous to belittle people who live day in, day out with the truths.
The old argument that the media brainwashes people is true though.

Not into hating, but into accepting all the economic migrants. I mentioned it before but I think it should be highlighted again. If you try and search for ANYTHING negative on immigrants using the German speaking web, you will find...

...zilch!

I have the feeling it is illegal to criticize any aspect of the massive, unregulated influx of people who are as alien to our culture as you can get.
So how can Germans [or Austrians, who share a lot of media with Germany], be influenced by media in a negative way, when there is an absolute ban on criticism?


Austrians aren't imbecile, mindless robots [because that is implied by those that spout the notion that none of them may have had personal experiences they are acting upon, rather than being 'influenced by the media'].

Austria, just like every other European country used to be special. You used to feel safe there, there was civility. Sure they, like anywhere else had home-grown crime. But those crimes were predictable and far less.

Newcomers arrive and crime shoots up, that is extra crime and it is unpredictable. Who would expect someone you just helped to rape you?
Do not brush this under the carpet. Culture has to be taken into account. There are men out on the loose, from a culture in which white, unbeliever women are probably the last thing on the list they'd safe in a fire. They also believe that all white, unbeliever women are sluts who deserve no respect.

Most of those men [hopefully] are human enough to recognise that you don't just go round taking what you want. But there are far more men amongst the newcomers who are just feral compared to European standards. To deny this is to put women of Europe into danger.

Had I not have had a knife held to my throat by a Turkish muslim after he said something very disgusting to me [didn't understand but it was obvious what he meant, by tone of voice and hand gestures], or been talked to 'dirty' by Africans that suddenly appeared in the late 80s, took over a safe part of town and turned it into a drug dealers Disney land [I estimate about 20+ dealers hanging out, soliciting and suggesting sexual things to any woman, making a place I used to walk through alone at night into a complete NO- GO zone within weeks], I might be more lenient.

But I and many others have got information from the people themselves, rather than the media. And if the Austrian women feel the need to arm themselves, I can only surmise that the 'proper' info is not pretty.

What a shame that they have to go that far, but I would too if I lived in an area with too many migrants.
