During this recent flurry of Second Amendment discourse, I've been led to read more and learn more about it in the past month than all of my previous
years in existence, combined. Being a Liberty minded individual, I've always sort of taken it for granted. Gun ownership is a right endowed upon us
naturally. Nothing to debate in my mind. Still, I've been an absolute junky regarding the topic. I simply can't stop, and I can safely say that my
opinion has yet to be swayed.
Thing is....I'm worried. More worried than ever that this right is going to eventually by the wayside. Maybe not this year, maybe not in five years,
but it seems inevitable that they WILL come for our guns. At least, that's what my gut is telling me.
I think I might have a way to beat them, but it's a nebulous thought, a zygote, if you will. While pondering the topic iat work the other day, I
recognized something of a paradox. Why do so many of us willfully support the further funding of America's war machine, while at the same time warn
of the perils of a disarmed populace?
If guns are our safety net against a tyrannical government....we must think government is capable of tyranny in the first place. So why do we
continue to fund them?
I really don't have the answer as to how we'd go about defunding the war machine. That's what's making me nuts. Is it even possible?
Does anyone have an idea as to how we could somehow financially disarm our government?
I guess we could somehow do it politically....but when was the last time our representatives ever listened?
Tax revolt? How?
The list goes on and on.
I wish there was a way we could send a collective message "You take our guns, you have to buy your own from now on".
Like I said. This idea is a work in progress.
