I’m sure he thinks he’s being funny…

…but as he often does, Chris Ladd shows himself to be astoundingly ignorant:

In more practical terms, if you actually believe that you’re going to defend yourself from Obama with your cache of AR-15′s and a cellar full of canned goods, there’s little to discuss here.

Really? Hell, all you really need is ONE gun, along with a little gumption, and you can cause the authorities to lock down an entire city, and perhaps even bring an entire state to its knees — as one person. (See: Chris Dorner and the Tsarnev brothers.) Imagine…well, Kurt Hofmann said it better:

If one or two men can so thoroughly shake the security apparatus of the United States, the idea that the Second Amendment’s protection against tyranny is outdated, because the U.S. is now a modern superpower, and therefore “resistance is futile,” is simply not going to hold up. Imagine, after all, what even a small militia group of perhaps a dozen members could do, if the battle were not between terrorists and a country whose people can still convince themselves that they’re relatively free; but between a determined and angry citizenry who will no longer submit to enduring a long train of abuses and usurpations, and the government perpetrating those abuses. Now imagine a couple dozen of those militia groups. Now imagine hundreds of them.

Really, nothing more needs to be said.

    And imagine large chunks of the military siding with the people rather than the government and bringing those weapons along. Or if nothing else, a militia group could beat a small military group. Do that a few times and you have a completely new story. The Second Amendment makes all the difference.

      Indeed it does. It seems to me that no one thinks about the military being on the people’s side, which seems awfully short-sighted.

    GOP Lifer, eh? Getting a head start on that next big loss in 2016, I take it?

    Honestly, shit like this (the big-tent philosophy and an unwillingness to throw out those who decry its core values) is the primary reason I believe the GOP can’t crater fast enough.

    Maybe when it goes it’ll take Karl Rove down with it.

    Yeah. The dude lives in Illinois — you know, the state that sent Mark Kirk to Congress.
