Now, according to The Express Tribune, teachers can be armed and many will be. Provincial Information Minister Mushtaq Ghani said they chose to arm teachers because “the province was unable to provide police-guards for all of its government-run education institutions.”

Despite the Paris attacks, it seems the weapons are still flowing freely through Europe. Brian Donald, chief of staff for Europol, which coordinates cross-border actions among police forces in the E.U.’s 28 countries, says there have been two “large seizures” of assault weapons in Europe during the past two weeks, but would not give details about where they were, since the investigations were still ongoing. In all, he says police had seized “several vanloads of 30 or 40 weapons at a time,” during the last few weeks, including “AK-47s, Scorpions, handguns and semi-automatic rifles.”
» Davos Economist: Elite Are Afraid of Ferguson-Style Riots Alex Jones’ Infowars: There’s a war on for your mind!
Johnson’s view that the global elite are afraid of riots arising out of wealth inequality is shared by other economists such as Martin Armstrong,who last year predicted that widespread civil unrest would hit America by 2016 as a result of an economic downturn.
As many as 50 people were in and around the small home when shots were fired “by multiple shooters” around 2 a.m., Omaha Police Chief Todd Schmaderer said. No arrests have been made, and police said they were confident the shootings were gang-related.
Throughout the quieter parts of the French Quarter, residents and businesses have posted signs that read “Caution: Walk in Large Groups. We (heart) N.O.P.D. We Just Need More.”
It’s an unsettling message about violent crime in the Big Easy for the 1 million revelers about to descend for Carnival season, which this year ends on Feb. 17, Fat Tuesday.
But perhaps most importantly, before the excoriating impact of political correctness would begin to tarnish how we view World War II, which unless we really have reached what Robert Tracinski of the Federalist calls “Peak Leftism,” will likely only get worse in coming decades. Political correctness is a disease that advanced slowly before fully metastasizing; but its roots were already present among 1930s British leftwing elites, who vowed would “in no circumstances fight for king and country,” and feared Churchill more than they feared Hitler (plus ça change). And as the 15th-episode of the World at War, titled “Home Fires” notes, even as England was on the verge of defeating National Socialism in Germany, it was about to institute an ever-increasing peacetime amount of nationalization and socialism at home:
The profiles of the three attackers — Amedy Coulibaly and the brothers Chérif and Saïd Kouachi — are an indictment of the decades-long failure of France to address long-festering alienation and exclusion among too many Muslim immigrants and their French-born children.
And the commission believes it’s the guns – not the people – that are to blame.
The recent Charlie Hebdo attacks in France have led to some interesting reactions further demonstrating our position on private security as a means for defending home, business, church, school and community.
First, European Jews want to own weapons for the protection of their communities, as well as receiving the necessary training to protect their members from potential terror attacks. In a letter sent to interior ministries around Europe and obtained by Newsweek, Rabbi Menachem Margolin, director general of the Rabbinical Centre of Europe (RCE) and the European Jewish Association (EJA) – the largest federation of Jewish organizations and communities in Europe – writes:
We hereby ask that gun licensing laws are reviewed with immediate effect to allow designated people in the Jewish communities and institutions to own weapons for the essential protection of their communities, as well as receiving the necessary training to protect their members from potential terror attacks.
Second, Chuck Goudie, an investigative reporter for ABC News in Chicago did a report this week on “retail terrorism” in which he describes individuals, churches and businesses as the targets of “retail terrorists”:
The large and dramatic attack that authorities in Chicago and other big cities feared for years is being replaced by a new threat, the smaller, street-level terror strikes by a few local recruits… It’s known as “retail terrorism,” the opposite of what al Qaeda did on 9/11. No longer in vogue are the large scale attacks that take years to plan and millions of dollars to execute.
Illinois Senator Dick Durbin who was briefed on the shifting nature of the threat said:
We are in what he calls a “dangerous situation,” with individuals being recruited for attacks on places of worship and retail businesses. The big events that we used to guard against now are being brought down to street level and you are having threats made to people in businesses, in offices, just on the street,
Whether European Jew or resident of Chicago, law enforcement’s ability to defend you from these types of threats is increasingly questionable. As the distinguished Rabbi said:
[The police] are not doing enough, for sure. We just need more. The best solution is having at least two police officers at each Jewish institution, 24 hours a day. Until that happens we need to be able to feel secure in other way.
Chicago and the EU have highly-restrictive gun laws that essentially eliminate the ability of individuals to effectively defend their home, business, church, school and community. And both Chicago and the EU do not possess the manpower or budgets to provide blanket security. So what is the solution? Private security networks.

PATHETIC: Kerry Brings James Taylor to Serenade French With ‘You’ve Got a Friend’ | The Weekly Standard
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry visited Paris Friday in what was billed as a show of solidarity with the French people after terrorists attacked last week. The former Massachusetts senator brought fellow Bay Stater and singer-songwriter James Taylor to sing a slightly off-key rendition of “You’ve Got a Friend” to a Parisian audience.
That message has struck a chord in Germany. A survey conducted last month found that 30% of respondents had “full and total” sympathy for Pegida’s cause, the same level of support that Merkel’s political party got in the German elections to the European Parliament last year.
One of Europe’s most prominent Jewish organizations is petitioning the European Union to pass new legislation that would permit Jewish community members to carry guns “for the essential protection of their communities,” according to a letter obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
“’He started shooting – and I started shooting,’ said volunteer Linda Cruz. Time and time again, the armed civilian ‘dies’ – shot by a round that marks him or her with paint. In only two cases volunteers were able to take out one of two gunmen in the process.” That’s the result of tonight’s simulation of the attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo as reported by dfw.cbslocal.com (click image above to view their report). Nick conducted the scenario twelve times at Patriot Protection in Plano, Texas, apparently showing that given the circumstances – two terrorists armed with rifles – more than just one good guy with a gun would likely have been needed to save lives. But we’ll leave the final analysis to the analyst
These acts do less damage and kill fewer people than large-scale attacks, but they inspire significant fear and create high-profile propaganda that helps recruitment and fund-raising for affiliated extremist groups. Media-conscious militants now often wear GoPro cameras to create high-quality videos that can be shown online.

Some American newspapers, including The New York Times, did not reproduce the Charlie Hedbo cartoons that mocked Islam. The Times called the decision an editorial judgment that reflected its standards for content that is deemed offensive and gratuitous.
‘Young, Gifted & Black Coalition’ Issues Demands in Open Letter to Police Chief. They Got This Reply. | TheBlaze.com
The Young, Gifted and Black Coalition demanded in its letter that the Madison Police Department “cut in half the number of Black people and poor people arrested to address racial disparities” and “dramatically reduce the number of police contacts with Black people and poor people.”
Charlie Hebdo had faced repeated threats for depictions of the prophet, and its editor and his police bodyguard were the first to die.
Glenn Reynolds likes to talk about the “worst political class” in history, but I’d go one step farther: we have the worse political criminal class in our nation’s history, disguised as usual in the satanic cloaks of “compassion” and “fairness.”
Nationalist and populist movements are surging across the region, most notably in France, where the National Front — a party once linked to former Nazi collaborators — has become the nation’s third-largest political force. Yet now it appears that the far right sees an opening in the new atmosphere of angst that could help bolster its long-standing critiques of Islam and calls for tighter security and immigration caps.
