Good luck with that. I heard prohibition worked great with marijuana and booze. It’s about as inane as statements like “we need to get rid of envy, hate, and greed.”
Both sides know that if liberals can disarm us, they can do anything. If we won’t fight for the fundamental right of self-defense while we are armed, what right would we fight for after we have given up our arms? We would be slaves of the government, and of the leftist establishment media that serves as the government’s brain.
This touches on the same thing I mentioned on why the Left hates gun owners, especially armed white men. We’re standing in their way. We’re forcing them to take their time. They want their Brave New World today, and damn it us pesky racist bigoted prejudiced armed bastards are making it difficult.
No one likes to talk about it or admit it, but once you get rid of guns, there is no proposal too extreme, no idea too outrageous that can be presented to the public. The only thing left that maintains any kind of restraint on government is the fear that unless the masses are placated they will resort to armed rebellion.
Make no mistake: violence is golden. It is how our ancestors clawed their way to freedom and maintained it.
There’s that old saying that you can take my gun when you pry it from my cold dead fingers. I’m not a huge fan of that phrase, because it sends the wrong message.
I prefer something like this:
They won’t take my guns, because if they try they will be the ones with cold, dead fingers.
Gun control is a classic example of the fundamental difference between the civilized and the uncivilized, the sane and the insane. One understands the limitations reality and human nature places on ideas and crafts policies accordingly. The other runs roughshod over facts, stats, data, logic, reason, human nature, and the natural order of things in pursuit of the unattainable, and no matter how badly the efforts fail, no many how high the body count rises, and irrespective of the misery their disastrous plans yield, they press onward with even greater fervor in the sincere belief that something, anything other than their operating premise is to blame for their inability to achieve their goal.
