a rude awakening for the gun nuts
here’s a little reminder – 80% of the country during the American revolution didn’t give a shit.
Further, we’re not fighting a leader across an ocean, this government is in our backyards.
These guys put all their energy into the 2nd Amendment cause they didn’t want to hear the speech of others, they didn’t care if the FEDS were busting into the homes of #OWS or liberals – spying on their e-mails, patting them down at the airport:
don’t internets, don’t fly they yell!
and if he’s an American Citizen, but looks like a foreigner, or worse, a Muslim – screw his 4th Amendment – screw due process!
Let the war criminal go! – he’s in our party and just did what he thought was right, this is a republic after all, not a democracy.
Course democrats believed the people at Waco deserved what they got – only cause Clinton was in office, and now Obama is their guy so who cares about endless wars and crooked wealthy banks.
The government has proven over and over again they can’t be defeated – gun owners are short sighted, they are out moneyed, out gunned and out media
I want to know who these gun owners are that think the NRA is going to run to their side and join in the battle burnishing their guns to protect them?
The day any one of these guys steps on their front porch waving a gun the corporate media will be there with one of the following labels: mental illness, messed up vet, christian nut job, neo nazi, Aryan nation.
the FEDS don’t even have to end the 1st Amendment – they now own it.
My theory is that they will let us keep this 2nd Amendment because all we are doing is shooting each other. Now the moment some nut walks into a elite country club in the Hamptons and opens up. Then they will yank this right too.
Take away guns from law abiding citizens, then freedom of speech and assembly, etc., etc.
Already, look what happens when a concerned citizen questions ‘Common Core’ or ‘Skull and Bones’ at town meetings
Easy pickings at gun free zones:
Colorado theater, Newtown grammar school and Navy yard shooters all had about 30 minutes to stalk and kill, both ‘gun free zones’.
An armed citizen would have taken each of them out in the first SECONDS
PC liberal Progressive stupidity
Ignorance can be fixed with information, stupidity can’t be fixed.
Don’t take my word for it, here’s other peoples opinions:
“I’m all in favor of keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of fools. Let’s start with typewriters” -F. Wright
“In the wrong hands, [they] almost certainly would become perverted.” -Janet Tavakoli (on derivatives, also know as ‘weapons of mass destruction’).
“It is important to distinguish between tools and their users,” Blythe Masters speech regarding derivatives, October 2008.“Tools that transfer risk,” she added, “can also increase systemic risk if major counterparties fail to manage their own risk exposures properly.”
“Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.” – Mohandas Gandhi, an Autobiography, page 446.
“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government”
– Thomas Jefferson, 1 Thomas Jefferson Papers, 334
“The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.”
– Alexander Hamilton, The Federalist Papers at 184-188
The people of the various provinces are strictly forbidden to have in their possession any swords, short swords, bows, spears, firearms, or other types of arms. The possession of unnecessary implements makes difficult the collection of taxes and dues and tends to foment uprisings.
– Toyotomi Hideyoshi, Shogun, August 1588
“One of the ordinary modes, by which tyrants accomplish their purposes without resistance, is, by disarming the people, and making it an offense to keep arms.”
– Constitutional scholar Joseph Story, 1840
“To disarm the people… was the best and most effectual way to enslave them.”
– George Mason, speech of June 14, 1788
The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to permit the conquered Eastern peoples to have arms. History teaches that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by doing so.
– Hitler, April 11 1942
The right to buy weapons is the right to be free.
– A.E. Van Vogt, “The Weapon Shops Of Isher”, ASF December 1942
I do agree that Americans should be more ardent of their other rights, they have been too complacent, ill informed, intellectually lazy and pre occupied with entertainment.
If the Americans get taken down, the rest of the world will be a piece of cake for the Illuminati and will be left to be over run by the Muslim Brotherhood
This happens because gun nuts tend to be white males who are afraid of a world they can’t control, turning everyday browner, more economically insecure, etc… Instead of attacking the problem at its roots, they seclude themselves and believe to be safe cuz dem guns. Guns are the opium of the white male.
MLK didn’t need no guns, Ghandi didn’t need no guns, the Brazilians didn’t need no guns, the Egyptians didn’t need no guns!!!!
Most people look at the words and not the substance. Even if you own a gun and the government databases them all along with you, there is no substance behind ownership. If I understand what Max is saying, gun ownership has turned into a meaningless symbol of freedom rather than freedom itself.
Mlk jr owned several guns. Ghandi was by no means against guns. And do you really want to use Brazil and Egypt as examples?
You missed the point entirely.
