With all the anti-gun nonsense running around the MSM pretending to be factual news and educated opinion, there is something not getting nearly the attention it needs, and that is this:
Many (most?) in the Left DO NOT BELIEVE anything is worth fighting for. Because they DO NOT BELIEVE this, they BELIEVE others feel as they do; that all they need to do is pass a law and we’ll complain but obey. I don’t know if you ever sat through a dinner party with a bunch of anti-war folks during Vietnam who assumed everyone there was on the same anti-war page, only to say something pro-war and literally leave them all shocked and truly speechless. These people really do not fathom different viewpoints. Remember the woman in NY who was absolutely baffled that W could have been elected, saying,” I don’t know ANYONE who voted for him”?
Take that logic to a Left unable – not just unwilling, but UNABLE – to grasp that millions of us WILL fight for our rights, that we see confiscation, or anything that normally leads TO confiscation, as an infringement not just of the 2nd, but of the entire Constitution, something our parents, grandparents and many of us have fought for and sworn allegiance to, literally for centuries.
WE WILL fight against our guns being confiscated. WE WILL defend our Constitution and the Rule of Law with lethal force. WE WILL NOT submit to tyranny – period. We are AMERICANS; we don’t ACCEPT tyranny – we DESTROY it. It’s our entire heritage and history.
To use an historical example of this danger, in 1991 Ambassador April Gillespie was chatting with Saddam, who said he wanted Kuwait. She said we didn’t really care – it was not about us, but between Iraq and Kuwait. Not understanding there was a “line in the sand,” Saddam then attacked Kuwait. Ooops.
Because he did not understand there was a line in the sand, he made a huge mistake.
This is the danger with the anti-gun Left today – they really can’t comprehend there is ANYTHING worth fighting, killing and dying for. They refuse to accept – or cannot comprehend that – others do not agree.
It’s up to the Left to recognize there REALLY IS a ‘line in the sand’ on this and, unlike Saddam, must realize that if they cross it, THEY will be starting an armed revolt. Nor do they grasp that they cannot win – there are over 50M licensed hunters in the US, each with more than one rifle and handgun, and another 10M or so competitive shooters, a number far larger than the combined combat arms of all of American forces, and even that assumes the armed forced will violate THEIR oaths and attack Americans, probably NOT a valid assumption.
This is not just a national issue.
If the Left creates an armed revolt – and it WILL BE THE LEFT that is responsible, every nation with whom we have a military alliance will be at-risk as our forces will be brought home to deal with the revolt, leaving those nations undefended. Every aggressor nation out there will grasp the significance of this and act – immediately.
The Left is absolutely playing with a fire they truly DO NOT, arguably CAN NOT, understand.
They need to educate themselves and open their minds. They need to know that their actions WILL be met with force.
They need to realize we are NOT kidding.
