So Gawker published a two-year-old list of the names of gun owners in New York because Gawker likes to cause controversy and attention. But I think the main lesson we should learn from this and what the Journal News did is that gun owners must resist any sort of registration or other government held record of their guns with all their might. For one, fascist pricks will abuse such a list. Second, as long as the government has no records of what guns we have, any idea of confiscation is completely unfeasible.
And really, why should the government have lists about us? The government works for us and reports to us; we don’t report to it. I mean, this whole idea that the government gets to know out income is insane and just another thing leading us down the path of believing we serve our government. But no, the government shouldn’t know my income or how many guns I have or how many ferrets I breed or anything else I don’t feel like sharing. The federal government just needs to keep Canada from invading and let me worry about my business.
Oh, and doesn’t all these attacks on gun owners disprove the idea that law-biding gun owners are anyone to fear? Because apparently people don’t worry about publishing lists of us while calling us a**holes, so how scary can we be?
