Yep, that makes total sense.

One Lt. Col. Robert Bateman, writing in Esquire:

We crossed the line some time ago, it has just taken me a while to get around to the topic. Sadly, that topic is now so brutally evident that I feel shame. Shame that I have not spoken out about before now — shame for my country, shame that we have come to this point. One story tripped me.

A woman charged with killing a fellow Alabama fan after the end of last weekend’s Iron Bowl football game was angry that the victim and others didn’t seem upset over the Crimson Tide’s loss to archrival Auburn, said the sister of the slain woman.People, it is time to talk about guns.

Because somebody shot somebody else over a college football game, we all need to have our guns taken away. Hokayyy, then…

Time to talk about guns? How many times has that been said? A LOT. How many times has the talk been had? A LOT. And every time, the conversation’s ended with, “We’re keeping our guns. If you try to take them bad things will happen. So you can just sit on it.”

The last bit was taken from the last sentence of Mr. Bateman’s screed: “As for the NRA, they can sit on it.” Surely I’m not the only one who finds this disturbing. A military officer basically telling millions of Americans to sit down and shut up just because they don’t agree with his proposed usurpation of natural rights and personal property. Because let’s face it, that’s what this boils down to. After all, what does Mr. Bateman think should happen if those guns aren’t turned in? I would guess he thinks that the local police should go around taking them at the point of their own guns. He’s just not man enough to come right out and say it.

And I’m sure some folks might say, “Since he’s a military officer, why didn’t you call him by his title?”

Well, he seems to have little to no respect for the Constitution he swore to protect and defend, so does he really deserve that, especially since he uses his authority as an Army officer to advocate things like this? I certainly don’t think so.

    Wasn’t the Fort Hood Murderer one of the military’s own? By his own logic; shouldn’t the military then give up their firearms?

    Actually, this guy is advocating civil war, though he doesn’t know it He is committing treason against the Constitution he swore to uphold

    Soldiers are not allowed to carry on base, unless they are getting training I’m not even sure they are allowed to have their own private arm there Suffice it to say, Mohammed the Mad was not authorized to have that firearm at that time or place (And yes, it was terrorism; I don’t give a damn what the Obomination says it is)

    We have had this “conversation” before, and they have not bothered to listen to us The only answer left to us is , “Hell, no!” And if you want to push us, go ahead! We will make Sandy Hook look like a Sunday picnic! Do you really want to go there
