Gun Control Laws in the USSR

Illegal possession of weapons was severely punished. From March 1933, the manufacture, storage, purchase, sale of firearms (except hunting weapons) without proper authorization was punishable by imprisonment for up to five years. In 1935, a similar punishment was imposed for the storage of bladed weapons.

When Class Enemies ‘Meditate’

The bourgeoisie misrepresent Buddhism and represent the very class privilege that the Buddha thoroughly rejected and transcended. This is because the bourgeoisie are ‘attached’ to an image of being ‘Buddhist’ that has no bearing in reality. For a bourgeois to truly become a Buddhist, he or she must fully reject the very ignorance that has historically given them their privileged life-style at the expense of the working class.
