Beginning his working life in the aviation industry and trained by the BBC, Tony Gosling is a British land rights activist, historian & investigative radio journalist. Over the last 20 years he has been exposing the secret power of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) and élite Bilderberg Conferences where the dark forces of corporations, media, banks and royalty conspire to accumulate wealth and power through extortion and war. Tony has spent much of his life too advocating solutions which heal the wealth divide, such as free housing for all and a press which reflects the concerns of ordinary people rather than attempting to lead opinion, sensationalise or dumb-down.

    If the US secret services were involved with the Las Vegas shooter , the purpose could be to make America more of a police state or whatever gives our increasingly oligarchy government, more power to lessen our bill of rights in the US. btw, I am a democratic socialist, but i defend the second amendment . It is US culture responsible for our high homicide and violence rate . Everyone in Switzerland has to own a gun or several because they have no military and dependent on a civilian militia . The homicide by firearm rate in Switzerland is one of the lowest in the world . One of America’s greatest playwrights Tennessee Williams said or wrote( circa, said or wrote the following during the early to mid 20th century) he was overwhelmed by the violence “that underlay the American Ethos “

      Nobody in Swizz is obliged to own a gun, they are allowed to have a firearm in their home but it certainly isn’t mandatory.
      Also they do have an army with about 150.000 active personnel, 38th in the world.
      I advise you do the same as I did some decades ago, don’t spread information that you haven’t verified personally, you’ll be amazed how much BS or inaccurate information is being forwarded by sources you though took care to be correct. For instance the source how told you the stuff about swizz.
      swizz army info source:
      And I’m aware that Wikipedia also is a crappy source when it is on controversial subjects, it’s ok for uncontested information.

  2. dahszil dahszil says:

    If you banned fire arms in the US the only people who would have them would be violent criminals and law enforcement and secret services . Psychologically there is little difference between violent criminals and American police officers and the secret service persons

  3. dahszil dahszil says:

    continued : i myself don’t have any fire arms, but i still defend citizens of the US the right to own firearms
