Shunning Gun Owners

First, this horrific post from Stately McDaniel Manor blog, Connecticut: The Coming Storm, is all over the it should be:
Starting awake from a sound sleep by the explosion of your door being smashed open and the heavy stomping of booted feet, you stumble down the stairs and into the hallway. As you turn toward the sounds, you’re blinded by multiple bright lights and hear many people screaming at you, but their words are unintelligible. You raise your hands to shield your eyes, but you have your cell phone in your right hand. As soon as it comes into view, you’re overwhelmed by a tidal wave of explosive sounds and feel the first bullets rip into your body. There are stars, so many stars, winking and suddenly, everything goes silent and black and your last conscious thought is a feeling of falling. 
The SWAT team, surprised when you suddenly appeared only five feet from them, screamed conflicting commands at you. When you raised your hands and one of them saw something dark in your right hand, he jerked back the trigger of his MP5 submachine gun and didn’t let go until the weapon was empty. Seeing him fire, four more did the same. Of the 137 rounds five of the team initially fired, only 18 actually hit you, but it was enough. The rest shredded your home from floor to ceiling and wall to wall. Six nearby homes were hit, as were four cars. As you lay dying, your heart beating ever more slowly and weakly, you were spared the horror of your wife’s death.
Read it, then read it again and pass it on to all your friends. It should probably be stapled to the forehead of every fool in the CT legislature who voted for this unConstitutional abortion of a law with the this notation added, "Is this what you want for American citizens?"

Anyway, listen to today's podcast on the impending crisis.

I was looking at my FaceBook page this AM, and it reminded me to post this particularly incisive peice from NRO's Charles Cooke on "The Push to Ostracize Gun Fans on FaceBook:"
And herein lies the problem: What Moms Demand Action and their authoritarian friends are really trying to do is drive gun culture underground: away from polite society; away from lightly regulated and difficult-to-control social media; away from the mainstream and the traditional. They would herd it into a faraway place where it can be more easily denigrated and where its adherents can be more efficiently marginalized. Which is to say that the pressure Watts and company are exerting on Facebook isn’t about “safety” or “common sense” or “helping the children” so much as it is about ostracism. Watts knows full well that Americans are less responsive to her propaganda than they are to the vital philosophy that lies behind the Second Amendment. She know that many Americans have taken note of the reams of literature documenting that crime rates have fallen at the same time gun laws have loosened. She knows that the Internet is not her friend. She knows that, on the question of gun control at least, the little platoons have beaten the centralizers for years now.
Definitely read the whole thing! Then check out the Gun Free Zone's take on the issue:
I do believe in the power of political idiocy and I know Zuckenberg is an avowed liberal, but is he ready to alienate a good several million Gun Owners and Gun Rights enthusiasts because Shannon Watts [Mom's Demand Action, a whole owned subsidiary of Michael Bloomberg] has her $150 La Perla undies in a bunch?

It's like they just woke up and realized that gun owners were mainstream. That scares the hell out of them

Well, as long as they get home safe at the end of shift, that's what really matters, right?

Had you not been blinded and deaf from the flashbangs they threw in, you might have known who was coming in the door and what they were yelling. Since you can't, I guess that's just tough shit.
This isn't going to end well for either side.

Everyone here in CT is waiting for the other shoe to drop. The bad laws are in place, the stupid rhetoric has been tossed around by the state police. I have no idea where this is headed. My respect for CT Gov is gone and I know a lot of gun owners feel likewise.

And where exactly is CT going to put 100,000 new felons? How many prisons are they planning on building??

Michael, awesome radio show this week. Also, great acting with the bum replaced hip on "The Best Defense".

Valid question about where to put all the new felons in CT. The goal is to do a few select high profile arrests, ruin a few lives and try to terrorize gun owners in CT into complying with these new unconstitutional laws. The best way to undermine any immoral law is to refuse to go along with it.

Just Remember everyone, there was a Judge who signs off on the no knock raids.

He is just as culpable as the officer that pulls the trigger and murderers the innocent.

I listened to Wed.'s podcast on this,and I truly don't believe Ct. understands the dynamite they are playing with. Mike Vanderbough's Sipsey Street Irregulars blog has been trying to warn them, of how bad it could get if they unleash the "thugs",but they seem secure in their ignorance. None seem to grasp that there are folks who will fight with arms an unjust, unconstitutional law that makes felons out of people who were perfectly legal 3 months ago. They forget the lessons ofLexington and Concord, a "local" event that lit the fire of Revolution in all the Colonies. nothing will be uglier than a modern Civil War…..It's starting to feel awful 'Red Dawn'ish in the "slave states" like Md…..

JURY NULLIFICATION by the citizenry will mean no new prisons will be needed. Cemeteries and crematoriums, however, may be another story.

Criminals are increasing at astounding rate. Sooner or later there will be no place to keep them. It is better to focus on removing the crimes from its root rather than preparing for more negative situation.

Crime rate is increasing day by day and we don’t know when any incident can happen with us. We are enduring these violence and that violate the safety of our children and our family members. It is important that some serious steps should be taken by the government for Preventing Gun brutality.
