Interesting Question

Paul Hsieh at PJ Media asks the question: Would New Gun Laws Spark Widespread Civil Disobedience?

Heh. My immediate and gut-felt reaction upon reading the title was “Do bears shit in the woods?” I suppose I could be wrong and those people that are busily engaged in buying up all the guns and ammo and high-capacity magazines may just be acquiring them in order to peacefully surrender them to the government without recompense upon demand, but that seems pretty damned unlikely to me.

The premise for these gun-grabbing tactics appears to be “public safety”. I note that there are no concerted efforts underway to disarm the drug gangs murdering each other as well as innocent bystanders in the cities. Interesting. They (Democrats) appear only interested in disarming law-abiding citizens (for the children, of course). I also note that, curiously, there are no steps being taken to increase the funding for mental health care and hospital beds for the seriously insane even though the people that committed mass shooting events could be the poster kids for batshit crazy.

Something smells REAL bad about this whole gun grab, folks. This is allegedly being done in the name of public safety, yet has nothing to do with public safety. Things like this and the Great DHS Ammunition Buy (of 1.6 billion bullets) make me think dark things about “our” government, although we are reassured by the Huffington Post that there is a perfectly logical explanation for this. Yessirree. The Federal government wants to save us all money, you see, and it is cheaper to buy ammo in bulk.

Put me down under civil disobedience, please.

    Y’know, except for the religion part…I AM one of the people this administration warns everyone else about. I will not surrender my firearms. I will probably go to jail, if it comes to that. In their own words, and with their actions, they demonstrate their belief that I am their enemy.

    They’re probably not wrong… ;)

    Okay, I will trade the semiautomatic .22 that has a jamming problem for a couple rolls of sturdy field fence wire, some strong metal fence posts (none o’ them cheapass fence posts or wire) and, to get the coyotes, a grenade launcher. With grenades.

    Gotta protect the sheep, you know. I think this is a perfectly reasonable trade.
