Come and gits sum!

So, this Saturday is “Gun Appreciation Day” (find your local listing in the notes section on the “Guns Across America” Facebook page). From a quick scan I did of a small sample of states, seems New York is second only to Texas for number of “likes”.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: There are lot more “me’s” out there in the state of New York than one might otherwise be inclined to believe. This weekend, we’ll see how true that is.

That said, what will a protest like this do when our ruling elites don’t give two sh*ts about what us little people have to say?

Answer: Absolutely nothing.

Then why do it?

In a term: just cause.

No participant in Saturday’s events should think he or she will have any impact on legislators. So let’s be clear: We’re not doing this to influence incorrigible “representatives”. What we are doing is simply dotting i’s and crossing t’s by exhausting every last legal recourse we have.

In other words, it’s mandatory every red-blooded patriot do what they can to attend; just realize it’s not for the ostensible purpose of affecting legislation through peaceful protest.

Consider it “Rattle the Sabers” day.

To quote from my new favorite book, Resistance to Tyranny:

The point here is that whenever a government attempts to disarm its citizens, a prima facie case exists that Just Cause is satisfied. …
There may not be a government action as drastic as an “out of the blue” gun ban. The government may impose its totalitarian rule gradually. Henry May wrote, regarding the Nazi “tightening of the screws” in Germany:
Each act, each occasion, is worse than the last, but only a little worse. You wait for the next and the next. You wait for the one great shocking occasion, thinking that others, when such a shock comes, will join with you in resisting somehow. … In between come all the hundreds of little steps, some of them imperceptible, each of them preparing you not to be shocked by the next. … And one day, too late, your principles, if you were ever sensible of them, all rush in upon you. The burden of self deception has grown too heavy. (quoted in Taylor)
Thus you may find that “drawing the line” becomes very difficult. The government’s most recent step is too small a step beyond the previous one to get excited about. This process must be recognized early on, as “Just Cause”.

Sic semper tyrannis.

  1. I already celebrated “gun appreciation day” by buying a Marlin 1895 SBL lever action 45/70 (in honor of the gun ban).
    This round can take down a grizzly or a gang banger with one shot.

  2. We will be participating by having the better half attend her CWP class and I will just have to go throw a few rounds downrange as well.

    Should be fun for the both of us! 😉

  3. Make sure you have plenty of signs that name INDIVIDUALs that are protected with guns but have consistantly attacked the People’s right of self-defense. Make the signs attack ONE individual only so that it will show up in the news media’s pictures.

    Years ago protestors attached large capacity magazines to broomsticks and marched with signs proclaiming THESE were assault weapons to the politicians.

  5. Well I missed the boat on getting one of those “Scary Rifles” and I ain’t paying 1,500 bucks for an AK that two months ago was 350. So I beleve I’ll be checking out a lever action, just cause I can.

  6. Damn straight Red! Don’t know about the folks in NYC land, but here in Central NY and the North Country you cant swing a dead cat by the tail without hittin someone who is hoppin mad about Andy’s little socialist PR stunt that aims at stripping us of our rights just so he looks good for his Presidential ambitions.

  7. Speaking of guns, and the right to bear them, here is a great piece from American Thinker.

    The historical reality of the Second Amendment’s protection of the right to keep and bear arms is not that it protects the right to shoot deer. It protects the right to shoot tyrants, and it protects the right to shoot at them effectively, thus, with the same instruments they would use upon us.

      Whether we are discussing salt, tobacco, gasoline, fountain drinks, greasy hamburgers, or guns, much wrong-headed policy today is being driven by the question, “How much does anyone need?” In Venezuela, Soviet Russia, or present-day England, it might be different, but here the correct answer is, “Whatever they want.”

      Remember caseless ammo?

  8. Heeeeeeeere’s Lard Ass!

    You want to know what reprehensible is? Having to listen to this gluttonous gasbag spew his drivel.

    ‘Hey! Lard Ass! Chow down, wide load!’
    ‘Neck so thick he could eat a brick if it’s made by Frito-Lay’

  9. Hey Red,

    Our Bass Pro Shop is having gun appreciation here in Kansas City on Saturday… you can bet I’ll be there just to show the number of Americans who support the 2nd amendment.

  10. Well said my friend. Its the republic’s peoples show of power.

    Now we have the Military dissing the right wing, very devious and dangerous.

    I Have also Heard that The Sport , and Sport Expo set for Harrisburg , Pa. is Not Allowing any “Assault Style” Weapons on The Grounds , and The Event is Sponsored by a “British” Sales Conglomerate , all , or some May be True , but I’m Not Going .

    Reminds Me of That Lime POS…………………………….. “Pirz Moron” , and His Kind !

  14. Rides A Pale Horse says:

    I prefer to call it “Second Amendment Appreciation Day”.

    In its honor and recognition, may I present Mr. Charleton Heston in his own words.

    “From My Cold, Dead Hands”

  15. Hey Red, you know what the lefties were doing today? National Service Day, guaranteed to be used politically to demonize all of us right wing kooks. Uncle Joe(Biden) and sister Steph(Cutter) say the campaign machine that got Barry re-elected will be used in the Gun Control fight. I guess we should be scared!
