I know I am a little late getting this out there but, I can’t get it out of my head and I have lectured my husband on it several times now and he is sick of agreeing with me.
All those people who are buying guns at a record pace would do better to put that money into a retainer on a lawyer. It is not the government kicking in your door that you have to worry about, because why in the name of all that is holy would the government kick in your door when every person over the age of 5 has a cell phone with a camera. It would end up on most major news outlets within the hour, maybe even Fox News (depending on who is in office).
It would be messy, nasty and a horrendous PR nightmare. Now don’t get me wrong, if you have committed some major crime, no problem, go get ‘em. But just sending armed men to kick in your door because you don’t think they way they do. Nope, not going to happen.
Not when they have the IRS.
I am telling you, the best defense against an intrusive government is a really good tax attorney.
Also, I think that if the founding fathers had written the Constitution in this day and age, they would have granted us the right to a computer and the Internet.
That is the best defense against a corrupt government.
The government is far more afraid of the hacker group Anonymous, than of any armed militia.
Bad press trumps everything.
I say all this from my computer in a town about 20 min outside of Dallas, TX. I understand the gun culture, and have been surrounded by it all my life. I don’t understand why some of my nearest and dearest family don’t get it.
I suppose holding a laptop doesn’t hold the same romance as holding a Smith & Wesson. Facing down your foe with evil youtube videos isn’t as satisfying to them.
They don’t understand that gunshot wounds heal and even death is final. Screwing with someone’s mind lasts much, much longer.
Especially if you publish evil pictures of them on the internet.
And if you mess with their credit, well…
I’m just sayin’.
