International Firearms Directory

Worldwide resources promoting the right to keep and bear arms and the shooting sports.

This directory has the goal of helping people find pro-gun resources and organizations in their own country as well as facilitating the exchange of info, strategy, et cetera with their brothers (and sisters) in arms. We shooters have many challenges facing us - governments which seek to abrogate our rights, highly biased media and last but not least popular prejudices which make anti-gun legislation easier to impose. Please e-mail me with any comments or suggestions. Note, due to server problems, I haven't had access to this site for about one year. Crafty old me figured out how to get around the old login procedure to get to my homefiles and now just ftp the stuff. I am going to redesign the site so everything will fit on one page with a navigation bar that will yield the desired info.

International Firearms-Related Organizations & Websites

I've started this directory to help you find pro-gun resources and organizations in your own country as well as facilitating the exchange of info, strategy, et cetera related to the right to keep and bear arms. We shooters have many challenges facing us - goverments which seek to violate or severly restrict our rights, an unfair media and last but not least popular prejudices which make anti-gun legislation easier to impose. The U.N. is turning its attention from regulating land mines to controlling the private possession of small arms. With more countries striving to get in the European Community, there is a movement to harmonize gun laws across Europe. Let's keep an eye on this as well.

Thanks to you all for your encouragement!!! So far I've had visitors from all over drop in: Argentina, somebody on the old Arpanet, Antigua & Barbuda, Australia, Austria, Bahrain, Belgium, British Indian Ocean Territory (Diego Garcia?!?!?!?), Brazil, Brunei D., Canada, China, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, the Dominican Republic, Egypt, Estonia, Faroe Islands (cool!), Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Lebanon, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malaysia, Malta, the Massachusetts State Senate, Mauritius, Mexico, NASA, Netherlands, New Zealand & NZ government, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Peru, Phillipines, Poland, Portugal, Qatar, Romania, Russia, Singapore, the Slovak Republic, Slovenia, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Tanzania, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Uruguay, the U.S. Treasury Department and of course the United Kingdom due to my many contacts there and my involvement in opposing the handgun ban, Venezuela and Yugoslavia. And they wonder why I'm known as the International Man of Mystery!

I am constantly adding to the directory. I'm presently putting up addresses of various shooters' organizations that have no websites, as well as more material on international gun issues. I'd like to express deep thanks to those people who have helped me so far with contact information. Even Japan and India have a National Rifle Association! Let's face it, there are firearms enthusiasts in every country (although the Albanians might be taking it a bit too far!) regardless of whatever bad legislation they are saddled with. Some of the groups are involved purely with the sport of shooting, others are concerned with fighting restrictions on gun owners.

"There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible to live without breaking laws."
-Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

If you feel your website or organization should be included, in this directory, or if you would like to be added to the "International Firearms Roundtable" discussion list

e-mail me!

Go here for the RecGuns summary of some international firearms laws.

Be sure to visit Donna Ferolie's Firearms & Gun Control: A Global Perspective .

Check out Jerome Tucille's excellent site The Mining Co. for excellent articles and links on gun issues in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia and much more. Great info on the effort to resist gun confiscation from a longtime activist for freedom.

There's an old index with summaries of gun laws in a little over a dozen countries at the old CDN-Firearms site, which is still up.

Keep up with Global Gun Control. This site monitors global agencies, groups, and regional organizations that are involved in the effort to regulate and eventually ban firearms from civilian possession.

"Fellows in arms, and my most loving friends,
Bruis'd underneath the yoke of tyranny."

- Shakespeare, Richard III

Sorry, mates, your time's now up. You have my deepest sympathies, and I would have been with you on the front lines had I been there. I don't know what else to tell you, except be prepared to really fight the next round of attacks on your rights. Keep your eye on repeal! Please consult some of the below websites for further information, or have a look at the The Firearms Amendment Act 1997 itself on-line.

Gun Control in Britain A libertarian essay on British gun control by one of the few men with the courage to defy the gun grabbers in the UK. The bad guys? The media, the former "Conservative" government, and the well-intentioned but horribly misguided "Snowdrop" campaign! (more like SnowFLAKE) Meet Sean Gabb

Peek in on the Gun Control Network (UK). "Working Towards a Gun Free Environment." Working toward eradicating any semblances of a "gun culture" in the UK, which is a proud tradition rooted in the maintenance of a free society - an armed citizenry. A former infantry officer helped form the group - does this mean they have any more knowledge about firearms, crime or sociology? If I had any say in the matter, the guy should be retroactively stripped of his commission for undermining the defense of the realm!

Some relevant quotes:

"These [common law] rights consist, primarily, in the free enjoyment of personal security, of personal liberty and of private property... to vindicate these rights when actually violated or attacked, the subjects of England are entitled, in the first place, to the regular administration and free course of justice in the courts of law; next to the right of petitioning the king and parliament for redress of grievances and lastly, to the right of having and using arms for self preservation and defence."

"Commentaries on the Laws of England"
Lord Justice William Blackstone, 1770

"That rifle on the wall of the laborer's cottage or working class flat is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there!"

- George Orwell, 1940, in the democratic socialist weekly "Tribune," quoted in "Orwell: The Authorized Biography," by Michael Shelden
