The VERY FIRST line of the linked article. Please tell my why I should have a comment beyond that?
Also, when you try to back out of their damned site, they refresh you back to the same page. I HATE THAT!
Don’t you love that New Jersey state of mind, though?
It’s from New Jersey. Nothing good comes from New Jersey.
The guy repeatedly states that the call to fight tyranny is radically “insane”, yet in his closing statement he concludes that such a fight against tyranny in the U.S. would be futile because the government has tanks, drones, and a powerful military at its disposal against citizens.
See the irony here?
Also, notice he fails to quote the country’s founding fathers who warned us about tyranny and wrote about how to dispatch with it.
Bruno needs to read this:
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
Source is a letter to the editor post.
It is by Bruno Ripp.
Web search only shows one “Bruno Ripp” in the US.
He is in Warren Township in NJ.
Here is a link that is a petition to the US Conference of Mayors, his name is on it.
That petition pertains to Free Speech and the Occupy movement.
He is a ComDem Crazy!
why didn’t we win in Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Korea and Somalia?
Answer: the UN,
a supposedly nonpartisan organization
They gave dirty Harry money for his last election.
Thanks for saving me some time and a little spleen.
I didn’t figure he was a Republican officeholder and Tea Party stalwart in Mississippi.
I’d bet if one were to dig even deeper they’d likely find that Bruno is also part of Media Matters or Organizing America.
Bruno? New Jersey?
The guy is probably named after the guy that kidnapped the Lindbergh baby.
Great link. Thanks. I hadn’t seen that.
“...that such a fight against tyranny in the U.S. would be futile because the government has tanks, drones, and a powerful military at its disposal against citizens.”
Indeed the power of the military is great.
However, the vast, vast majority of the military is populated by men and woman possessing much more knowledge of the constitution than do congress-critters.
And they have sworn to protect the constitution, not the critters.
Were we to get to the state of revolution, I fully expect all honorable military to point their weapons at the critters...and do what they feel best.
Yeah...big laughs...why do we even bother to listen to anything from there, or buy their products?
First off, the NRA was never about the Second Amendment, that has been a recent development. The NRA coined the phrase 100+ years ago, “Sporting Purposes of Firearms”. The NRA gave us every last federal, and many State, gun control bills for the past 100 years, including the 1934 NFA and the 1968 GCA.
Until the NRA starts undoing the damage they did in those bills they will never have my support.
