I've said this before and I'll say it again, despite all the bluster and chest thumping by the keyboard commandos, we won't ever see one as long as the thumpers have jobs, mortgages, payments on their new Dodge Ram 1500's and families to provide for..........
I tend to agree with you. It’s when a man is hungry, empty belly hungry or in fear for his family that you see him start to react in the mode of a rat backed into a corner. Fighting and spitting and kicking because there is nowhere else to run to.
Soldiers have to be taught to fight, to understand the consequences of fighting and that people die in combat or as sometimes is a worse fate survive but so badly damaged in mind and body that they might as well had died on the battlefield. Civilians can talk a good game but really how many are willing to go that extra step?
You know... the one that breaks the “Normalcy Bias” or as I call it, “Social Inertia”. A person will not know until it happens and when it does? You can’t ever go back to the person you once were.
Have you ever heard of Ann Barnhardt?
As the great gun rights activist, Janis Joplin, once said:
“Freedoms just another word for nothing left to lose.”
Or, You are never truly free until you have nothing to lose.
Kids are grown. Got a roof over my head. My “give a damn” is busted. So, I’m headed in the right direction!!

Yep. If the purpose of firearms is to defend Liberty from a tyranical government what difference does it make if you have your arms legally or not. As soon as the first shot is fired every person resisting will be proclaimed a criminal.
Had George Washington lost the American revolution the founding fathers would have been hung for treason.
JMHO but all the blather and chest thumping is just a more grownup version of playing “army”. Nobody wants their toys to be outlawed.
I’ve let a lot of things slide...more taxes, loss of personal freedoms and so on, but the minute Obama personally comes to my house and pokes me in the eye, well that’s my “Line in the sand”
Have a good weekend I’m going to put on some cammo and play computer games lol.
