Lift a Rock and What Runs Out?

So it turns out that, yes, they really are coming for our guns, and no, they don't think we any any right to bear arms.

Four American heroes are dead because the government forbade them a not just an American right defined the Bill of Rights, but the most basic human right of self-defense, the right to defend your own life.

It's probably not the best week for NEWSWEEK to come out with their "grand bargain," e.g., we give up whatever causes author Kurt Eichenwald and his smarmy pack of pimps and whores to go all gooey inside and they'll let us keep…something.

Here's his big closer line:
It is up to the rational middle—the vast majority of Americans—to tell the fanatics that the grown-ups are taking over.
No Kurt…the "grown-ups" are dead on the ground in Chattanooga. 

You and the other arrested development adolescents and blood dancers like Bloomberg, Watts, Giffords, Kelly and the rest of the cockroaches that come out when you lift the rock are directly responsible for that blood.

The "rational middle" says we are at war; arm the military. Now. The "rational middle" knows we're on our own, and we demand the right to protect ourselves and our families. The "rational middle" know that gun-free zones kill. They are the legacy of fools like yourself, Mr. Eichenwald. You think that little sticker on the door protects you? You think your progressive buddies will do anything except stand and watch (well, maybe video if it's not too much trouble) when you're beaten to death on a subway car or shot down by a "lone gunman," "workplace violence," "man-caused disaster," the Confederate flag, Islamic terrorists?

The "rational middle" has listened to all your arguments, Mr. Eichenwald, and upon reflection, I'd like to quote former CNN anchor Lynne Russell:
"If you don’t want to carry please don’t. Then, shut the f--k up about it. Make your own decisions."
Bios of the America heroes lost in Chattanooga:

• Lance Cpl. Squire "Skip" Wells

• Gunnery Sgt. Thomas Sullivan, 2 Purples Hearts, 2 tours in Iraq

• Sgt. Carson Holmquist, 2 tours, Afghanistan

• Staff Sgt. David Wyatt, 3 deployments, 2 in Iraq

Lance Cpl. Wells was texting his girlfriend when the attack happen. His last post was, "ACTIVE SHOOTER." God bless them.

I know, Jerry…I'm not sure what else I can do. I probably have one of the biggest platform in the business, across multiple platforms, but compared to "real media" it's not enough. We do what we can, it seems like…

If only the brave Marine's last text was "active shooter. We all shot him. He is dead. See you after work Honey".

And now we need to add a fifth causality, Navy Petty Officer Randal Smith. We as Individuals are the only ones who can protect us rom the whack jobs out there that will find some way to kill.
