The Only Thing We Have to Fear is Our Neighbors

Our guest columnist is batshit crazy.

Hurricanes. Tornadoes. Riots. Terrorists. Gangs. Lone criminals. These are perils we are sure to face — not just maybe. It’s not paranoia to buy a gun. It’s survival. It’s responsible behavior, and it’s time we encourage law-abiding Americans to do just that.

Since the election, millions of Americans have been lining up in front of gun stores, Cabela’s and Bass Pro Shops exercising their freedom while they still have it. They are demonstrating they have a mass determination to buy, own and use firearms. Millions of Americans are using market forces like never before to demonstrate their ardent support for our firearm freedoms. That’s one of the very best ways we can Stand And Fight.

Inevitably, the anti-gun media and the gun-ban lobbies are demonizing the purchase of firearms. They call us “extremists” because we wonder whether we will be able to buy a semi-auto in three years or, even in some states, later this year. That’s despite the fact that President Obama long ago made clear that he wants to ban them all!

The media try to make rank-and-file Americans feel guilty about buying a gun. The enemies of freedom demonize gun buyers and portray us as social lepers. But we know the truth. We know that responsible gun ownership exemplifies what is good and right about America.

Responsible Americans realize that the world as we know it has changed. We, the American people, clearly see the daunting forces we will undoubtedly face: terrorists, crime, drug gangs, the possibility of Euro-style debt riots, civil unrest or natural disaster.

Gun owners are not buying firearms because they anticipate a confrontation with the government. Rather, we anticipate confrontations where the government isn’t there — or simply doesn’t show up in time.

The government isn’t there because they’re busily drowning it in a bathtub.

On happier news threadjack: Cute pictures of President Dad in my burg of Decatur, Georgia with preschool kids here.

Wayne spends too much time in the echo chamber and has completely lost the ability to communicate to others outside of his base.

Fun fact: Feinstein’s staffers were drawing up the list of what to include in her assault weapons ban bill last year, according to the Washington Post.

@redmanlaw: There’s an argument to be made that assault weapons are getting a disproportionate share of attention, given the small percentage of their use in violent crimes.

There’s also an argument to be made — by Twentieth-Century Wayne, no less — that universal background checks are a reasonable measure without infringing on rights. (Setting aside the futility of arguing over what the Second Amendment actually means.)

A responsible NRA spokesman — instead of an industry lackey — could actually move the national conversation to some kind of provisional consensus: Let’s try this, see what happens, revisit the subject later. But as long as Wayne is spouting off like a madman (and blocking various statistical investigations), it ain’t gonna happen.

@nojo:

Indeed – what we get instead from LaPierre is dark hints about how universal registration / background checks lead directly to the UN confiscating guns, Agenda 21, sapping and impurifying our precious bodily fluids, etc.

My favorite was the brief pivot to “hey guize we should register all the crazy people”, as if that would do anything relevant given the private-sale loophole.

They have a “mass determination” to stockpile.

Why doesn’t Wayne argue for arming the queens in Ess Eff for the post-earthquake zombie apocalypse that will be unleashed in the Castro because it’s one of the few hoods built on serpentine versus fill/sand? We’re going to be overrun by the dot-com geeks fleeing their South of Market condos and the Marina chicks whose apartments collapsed.

@rptrcub: Thank you for making my day, sunshine.

@SanFranLefty and Cubbie: He has beautiful hands. I noticed that when I saw SOTU pictures. Those hands…

And no I’m not bitter that I’m spending yet another Valentine’s Day alone with high carb food. Saw my secret crush make off with a chick at lunchtime. Hopes dashed. Yeah, you don’t shit where you eat, but still. He has nice ears.

While walking to the grocery store tonight I saw a couple celebrating Valentine’s Day with some one-on-one basketball. Cutest damn thing I saw all day (Obama working a room of preschoolers is a close second).
