Such was my thought when I read this:
Bushmasters and similar weapons…hold no allure for me…Ban those guns. Neuter them. I’m fine with it. I can hunt with my shotguns and my deer gun (although I’ve grown tired of hunting), and I can protect myself from miscreants with my trusty .38.
So, in other words, “I got mine, fuck the rest of you people.” Protect yourself from miscreants with that trusty .38? Sure you will…unless you need more than five or six rounds, then you’ll be up Shit Creek, won’t you, Sparky? You’ll deserve it too, you craven sellout.
And then I thought of the words of now-inactive gun blogger Geek With a .45:
“If you own a duck gun or a deer rifle, and see nothing wrong with the ‘Assault Weapons Ban’, I remind you that the Second Amendment is of sober and serious purpose that is not about your trivial right to entertain yourself with sports shooting.
“When they come for your duck gun, my battle rifle and I won’t be there to help you, because at that point, I either won’t have a battle rifle, or it’s shards will have been buried with me.”
“And if that came to pass because you were sitting on your ass, you won’t deserve any help either.”
Even less so, of course, if you were actively campaigning for a gun ban…
