I find it hilarious how people are squirming now that "2nd Amendment" rights are threatened.
After 100+ years of a continually eroding, government funded social structure, ever increasing government intervention, the "Patriot Act," and the
list goes on and on here... Now that extreme gun control is threatened, people are coming out of the dark corners they have been hiding in to say,
"Oh, this is it...this means the end, this means war, revolution, blah, blah blah..." Meanwhile, the same people have largely ignored this continual
erosion, this quantitative easing we have been subject to like frogs in pot of warming water.
Their guns, this supreme symbol of freedom, to them, lay beneath their pillows, on their rifle racks, locked into safes and hidden in their
nightstands. In all the years, the 100+ years, these guns never came out from dark corners to be used in the name of the revolution they decry, they
so solemnly swear to inflict should push come to shove. "Pry my gun from my cold dead fingers!" NO, these weapons were used only for killing
unfaithful wives, over insured husbands, people wearing the wrong color in the wrong "hood'', simply because they are pissed the hell off, or in
short, for killing each other. As the water warmed, these guns never came out in the name of FREEDOM...yet somehow they are a symbol of that? None
have lifted a finger to stop the wrecking ball that continues to slam into the very foundation of this country itself, the Constitution, except for
the finger on the trigger to kill a brother, a stranger, a fellow, a friend.
The fear is that a government may take their guns so that they can be subdued, they claim, and while that occurs, no friction from the masses. That
the most powerful military might in the world, that is...won't have to worry about their pea-shooters while they fling us into FEMA Camps. It's
As the water begins to boil, people have decided that taking, or just plain controlling, weapons is the proverbial straw. But the heat is added so
slowly, none will notice. A few may croak "Look what they are doing!" as they do here in forums like these...but it's just noise. A hundred years of
noise, of shots ringing out from guns always pointed in the wrong direction. In the meantime, these "enlightened" freedom loving citizens, cling to
their guns behind the walls of the greatest camp in the world.
Prisoners always think the guards are out to get them, but usually, the prisoners just end up killing each other.
