Hey, Second Amendment Lunatics! Think About This:


Published On April 21, 2013 | By Veruca |




by Steve Marmel


The entire city of Boston was under martial law the last few days. You get that, right? MARTIAL LAW.In a cameras-everywhere society, we went from tragedy to identification to capture in less than five days. And to make that happen, the full-force of the government came in, shut down a major metropolitan area, instituted a no-fly zone, flooded the place with troops and technology and locked it down until it completed it’s mission.Think about that, screaming gun lunatic with more weapons than friends, the next time you think your 100 clip magazine and fourteen guns can protect you from a determined military. Your “Red Dawn” fantasy is laughable. Think about that the next time there’s a school shooting that could have been prevented by a ban or minimized by regulating clip-size but wasn’t because of you or the fearful twit in the Senate that represents you. Think about that when some mentally unstable person gets his weaponry from a gun show without the simplest of background checks, and tears apart dozens or hundreds of lives.My views on the issue haven’t changed in the last week. I want sensible gun reform and will continue to fight for it. I stand with 90% of Americans and against the senators who are in the pocket of the NRA. You, on the other hand, got a big lesson on just how sad and defenseless you would be if Obama – or ANY President – truly was the dictator you fear.

You wouldn’t last two days.

So if a dictatorial president got in & using the total of current armed forces which, including active reserves, totals 3 million & say 50% of the population rebels with the other 50% neutral, those 3 million will destroy the 150 million rebelling?

Just what would the civilised world think?

Will those 3 million destroy their own families should they be part of the rebellion?

Can't or won't happen?

Never ever say "never".

Rob I agree 100% as I said in my original post in gun facts Dictators and bad go'vs don't care about constitions and your example is correct it would be better not to have it and have assumed rights which can't be taken away than to have a write that will be only manipulated or cause great harm to the country . The Americans didn't need this write when they kicked the pom's out and they don't need it now

You want to check your "facts"...Martial law was never declared in Boston

Martial law is the imposition of military rule by military authorities over designated regions on an emergency basis.

Martial law is usually imposed on a temporary basis when the civilian government or civilian authorities fail to function effectively (e.g., maintain order and security, or provide essential services), when there are extensive riots and protests, or when the disobedience of the law becomes widespread.

Using facts in this forum is not considered to be in good taste even though I do agree with the Point Robert was making.

I didn't see the national guard on the streets of Boston.

I have seen the national guard on the streets of Los Angeles, and was damn glad I had second amendment rights then.

Two Incompetent Men Paralyzed A City. And You, Mr. Waite Are Deliriously Happy At The Incompetent Response To It. All This DEM/Lib and Law Enforcement Back-Slapping For A Job Well Done Masks The Total Failure Of The System. Your System.

Now Take Two Very Competent Fellows, 20, 200, 2000, 20,000 or 47%(hehehe) of The Population, In A Very Competent Insurgency Against This "Determined" Military.

With The Other 53%(Hustlin'HusseinWorld Lovers Like You) and All Their Cameras Not Being So Helpful.

You Won't Have A 24 Hr. Resolution, Sighs of Relief, Cheers, Clapping and Congratulatory Speeches and Back Slapping.

YOu will Have The Exact Opposite of what YOu so DEM/Libberly Happily Typed Out.

What The Response To The Two Terrorists Showed is HOw Much We In The US Cherish Our Weapons. And Like To Use Them.

For And Against.

Oh, and What War Predicted To Last A Few Days, has?

Bound For It.

If you start your "argument" with an insult followed by a lie/falsehood -
it isn't much of an arguement or a point - just hyperbole (at best)

Facts are such inconvenient things

But, but, I like my presure cooker,
It is all marine grade stainless steel (none magnetic)
is easy to load having the external rim lock,
has a heavy duty .50 base for full heat spread,
and a double safty catch so that the lid dont go off by accident,
Sheesh, i realy dont see why i should have to get a licence for it just coz some nut job donked hubby on the head with one.
Ok, i see it iz usefull as a short range lethal weapon,
But going hunting with one is going to be a bit difficult to take out a elk at 600 yds.

Agreed, the same as limiting memory to 640K, why would anyone need more than that?
