The following was written by Jost Turner, an American Viet Nam veteran, who founded a White folk community – NS Kindred in the Mountains of Northern California. Jost worked briefly in the open American White Nationalist “movement” but he became very disillusioned with the selfish, dysfunctional people in “The Movement”. Jost sought to discover and live authentic, Indo-European religions as practices by Indo-Europeans in India, Persia, Greek areas of modern Turkey and Europe during the last golden age. This article has been edited, recognizing the American negative bias associated with anything related to German National Socialism. I support Jost Turner’s very reasonable, practical gun views – Jack Ryan
Firearms: The Great Equalizer by Jost Turner
Clearly, violations of the laws regarding possession and use of firearms have been responsible for sending more White racialists to prison than anything else. There are probably thousands of different firearms laws in this country, all varying from state to state, county to county and city to city. Most of these laws are blatantly ill-written, but enforced with the fervor of an inquisition. Petty firearms violations were used as the government’s justification to attack both Randy Weaver and the Waco Davidians. Without a doubt, possession of firearms is the greatest danger to White racialists in general, and to Folk-communities in particular.
Nevertheless, we strongly encourage all (White Americans), especially our women and even our children, to be armed and highly skilled in the use of firearms. This is because the country is being invaded by hordes of criminals and gangs from Non-White countries notorious for violence and savagery. Neither the government nor the police are making any real effort to protect the public from these lowly evolved creatures, and so it is quite likely that we all will have to deal with them ourselves sooner or later.
Being armed is very effective against criminals and gangs. This was dramatically proven during the Los Angeles Rodney King riots. Invariably, the mere presence of a firearm was enough to send the rampaging gangs in the opposite direction – actually firing the weapon was unnecessary. This is because criminals ang gang members are by nature extremely selfish, indulgent and really quite cowardly. Hence, they prey only on the weak. However, they do not look on a man or woman with a firearm as “weak prey”. A firearm is really nothing more nor less than a very effective “equalizer”. It makes you equal to virtually any adversary, even a whole gang. Unless their courage is propped up with an enormous amount of dope or alcohol, you can be sure that even in mass these gangs are not likely to stick their necks out after looking down the barrel of a confidently held firearm. Looking towards our dismal future of lawlessness, violence and gang-land feudalism, we recommend that (White Americans) endure the real dangers in order to ensure the safety of their families with a firearm in the home.
The Most Effective Weapon: Your Skill
In general, a rifle is designed for attack and a pistol for defense. Although less wieldy, a shotgun is also a good defense weapon and requires less skill than a handgun to use effectively. Many people advocate the so called “assault rifles” (semi-automatic rifles with large magazine capacities) for defense. We discourage buying assault rifles. They are very expensive, not anywhere near as effective as one would believe, and, legally speaking, they are far more dangerous as virtually every day new laws are being passed restricting their possession. The same can be said of the large magazine capacity semi automatic pistols and “assault shot guns”. Frankly, any simple firearm, rifle, shotgun, or handgun – even a .22 plinker is perfectly adequate for defense. What is important is not your choice of weapon, but your ability to use the weapon effectively! I’ve witnessed it myself: a simple, single-shot weapon in the hands of a skilled marksman is far more deadly than a troop of mediocre riflemen armed with the latest “assault rifles”.
Necessities: Training & Information
To become a skilled marksman, you need to fire at least 20 rounds a week form the off-hand position. Handle your firearm often, so that using it is almost second nature. Learn something about human and animal anatomy. Learn where to place your shots to effectively stop and disable any adversary – including one out of his mind on dope. Be aware of all federal, state and local firearms laws. We recommend joining the National Riffle Association. They will keep you informed of all new laws and they are working hard fighting in the federal and state legislatures, as well as in the courts, to stop the flagrant disarming of the public. The liberal anti firearms hysteria is driving the NRA more and more in our direction. We are happy to report that the November issue of the American Rifleman, the NRA’s monthly magazine which circulates in the millions, carried an excellent feature story on the Randy Weaver tragedy, noting his “White separatist” religion with no derogatory connotation. They also endorsed Kirk Lyons multimillion dollar lawsuit of the Waco survivors against the government – and they know full well where Kirk stands! Firearms owners need all the support they can get. The NRA’s information legislative, and legal service are an important asset.
Defense Against Government Attack
While we feel that the growing lawlessness, violence, and gang-culture in this country warrants the possession of a firearm for defense, we do not advocate keeping firearms to defend against the police or the government. It doesn’t matter how well armed you are, you are not likely to win. You might get one or two of them (four in the case of the Davidians), but you won’t last long. The government had an inexhaustible supply of men, ammunition, and advanced technology (the best that tax-payer money can buy). Taking on the government would be like trying to fight a charging elephant with a .22. When an elephant attacks and you only have a .22, your best recourse is to run, hide and sneak away until you are out of danger. Shooting an elephant with a .22 will only make it mad. And if it’s mad, it will be much more difficult for you to get away. As both the Weaver and Davidian tragedies graphically illustrated, shooting it out with the government just isn’t practical.
Violence & Armed Revolution
Beware of those who advocate firearms for any sort of violence or guerrilla warfare against non-Whites, liberals, or the government. First of all, there is a good chance that these individuals work for the government and are interested in sending you to prison. Even if they do not work for the government, it should be apparent that they do not know what they are talking about! We have pointed out that anyone who knows anything at all about revolution or guerilla warfare would certainly be aware that there is absolutely no support for it in this country at this time. Without public support, all violence is counterproductive. This is not theory, it is a cold, hard fact!
Be aware that mediocre strategists always seem to do just what the enemy expects or wants them to do, and the followers of mediocre strategists are doomed to defeat. The government expects you to arm yourselves and be violent. The government wants you to do this. The government would love for lots of new “Order-type” organizations to spring up and lash out in armed violence. In fact, if none come about, the government will do everything it can to create some, as can be seen by the recent government entrapment of White racialist youths in Los Angeles! The government is ready and waiting for armed violence. Don’t fall in to their trap! The greatest of military victories have been won by a disciplined force doing exactly what the enemy never expected – or never thought possible. A brilliant example of this is how the British Colonel Lawrence easily took the Turkish stronghold of Aqaba with a ragged band of Arabs. That’s solution-oriented. A final note on armed revolution: In 1923 Germany was ripe for revolution. A. Hitler had 55,000 registered supporters, professional military officers (even Generals), the active support of hundreds of armed, trained, combat veterans, and public support, the like of which we could not even imagine! On November 8, 1923, he attempted an armed revolution and failed. Think about it. If he failed in such an opportune situation, then why should we consider armed revolution in a country not ripe for it – with no public support, no trained veterans, no leader, no military officers, and no organization with more than a hundred or so registered supporters? Even though in later years Hitler’s support grew and the threat of Marxist take-over increased, he never again considered armed revolution. Instead, like his Marxist adversaries, he carefully build a solid, Folk-based movement which ultimately could not be denied power! This is our task today.
It is our duty to defend our families from an onslaught of violence and lawlessness which the government is allowing and encouraging to proliferate. But as (White Americans), we must do so intelligently and responsibly, training ourselves in the skilled use of simple weapons, while keeping abreast of the changing laws which govern their use and possession. Just as in NS Germany, the next revolution will be a revolution in thought. – Jost
