Please don’t say it too loudly, but as of this moment there are no serious efforts by our dear leaders in Washington DC to, shall we say, ‘modernize’ our liberty. There’s an election going on and, say what you will about the man, Donald Trump is providing enough red meat for the Democrats and Marxist news media (I know, redundant) to chew on so they’re leaving the rest of us the hell alone.
You know as well as I do that every time there is a mass shooting or some sort of gun related murder in this country, the tyrants crawl out of their caves to demand ‘real solutions’ like disarming law abiding citizens without regard to our rights or freedom, let alone common freaking sense. This will always be the solution no matter what happens, really, because these people are ideologues. If an asteroid is hurling towards earth and we have 30 days to figure out how to destroy the thing or face world annihilation, do you think Barrack Obama would call NASA and get a team of engineers and physicists together to go blow the thing out of the sky? You would think that, since they made a movie about it, but no. He’d wake up in the oval office, swap out his Che Guevara pajamas for a shirt and tie, and give a speech apologizing to the rest of the world on behalf of America for our owning so many AR-15’s that extra-terrestrials felt compelled to send their sweet meteor of death to exterminate the human race. We could do something about it, but we deserve it because guns, climate, and feminism, or something else clearly worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize.
Anyhow, after a mass shooting, demand for guns and ammo always skyrocket, leaving me wishing I’d bought some new toys yesterday when I could afford them without selling my car. So long as the operating motto of the Democrat party is ‘let no crisis go to waste’, I say the new liberty motto is ‘during times of non-crisis, buy a gun’. At this time of reduced hysteria, prices are as reasonable as they’re going to get. Plus, looking forward, America is likely to elect Hillary Clinton for President who promises to pack the Supreme Court with the most radical Marxist judges imaginable. You may recall that in the DC vs Heller case, the Supreme Court only agreed by a 5-4 decision that your second amendment right to own a firearm exists. They were that close. We could stomp our feet , groan and moan about the Supreme Court having too much unchecked power, that the second amendment protects our right and 5 unelected judges can’t take that away, but they’re going to do it anyway. I say, in the name of being pragmatic, we get ahead of the curve and stock up now. As for the out of control courts, visit ConventionOfStates.com.
Now I know there are those of a more liberal persuasion reading this that are apprehensive about owning a gun. I get it. They’re dangerous, icky, scary, and don’t belong in a home where someone could get hurt. I understand your concerns, and I’m going to help you. You see, I too was once unprepared to handle the responsibility of being under the same roof as a gun. But then, on my 5th birthday, my parents did something miraculous for me – they parented. They stopped relying on child safety locks and baby gates to keep me safe and started teaching me the realities of the world, one lesson at a time. Despite the house containing at least 400 things that could kill me – high voltage electrical sockets, household cleaning chemicals, power tools, knives, guns, etc – my parents taught me responsibility (pronounced ree-spons-a-bill-itty). I couldn’t spell the word, but I was able to absorb the idea that fire burns and I ought not to play with it. Thanks Mom and Dad! So please, spare us your righteous indignation and admit that if you were presented with a life threatening situation to you or your family, you would prefer to have the ability to defend yourself beyond hiding behind a door and calling the police. I don’t know why you would rather rely on the police anyways since leftists have decided they’re all racist pigs.
Now that you’re armed with the knowledge of a good buying opportunity, go out and arm yourself with a shiny new glock. Get some range time, learn how to use it, be safe, and God bless.
