What the hell has happened to us ?
Lets look at the issue in both macro and micro . then we will take a stab at overall . Macro is the gun community . We have the “ prags “ on one side shown by Sebation ( http://www.snowflakesinhell.com/ ) and lionage (http://www.wallsofthecity.net/) and the other best done by Mike at http://sipseystreetirregulars.blogspot.com/ and david at http://waronguns.blogspot.com/.
Now you can go read , but suffice it to say there are two fundamental ideas on just what our rights , and specifically gun rights mean . such goes the micro .
Lets look at the macro … the tea parties , and the honest folk who worry about some folk not having some services .. Now i am going to try to keep this post neutral . I may well not succeed , but ill try . I remember when Regan was the dumbest sob on the block . I remember when Carter was going to save us from ourselves . Hell i remember Nixon … nuff said there ? . Nowadays we have Obama . Like him and his policies or no we do have him . When the sun comes up tomorrow he will be my president . which leads me to some of the discourse . I remember when our gun disagreements run to the gamers ( calib ) vs the “ shooters “ ( farnam , aayub, cooper .. ect ). but ill note that the “ shooters “ fed off the gamers for both techniques and technology .
Today the politics is not far off this . I just talked to a guy who is close to a friend who says the time for revolution is NOW . Now this is not a gun trader friend , this is a hs basketball friend . and he and i have some deap seated disagreements as to just where a “ revolution “ starts . He says it starts from shooting our elected folk … i say it starts by shooting the guy i know who is a cop . I d0nt think we are “ ready “ because “ ready “ will involve shoot your neighbor . I wont do that . You simply cant kill down enough to make a “ bullet vote “ work We threepers and prags have a window to work togeater and cast the ballet.
ill post more later on the disagreement and just what imho an armed insurrection might need .
