Biden mentioned how “executive action” could be taken on guns. A lot of people freaked out about this (Drudge had up pictures of Hitler and Stalin with the story), but I figured that was just Biden talking big because he’s kind of, you know, a moron.
I mean, really, how well would that go over? Would you think gun owners would be really tolerant of a run around the Constitution to take their rights? And that’s the thing: Politicians are still really afraid of gun owners — and it’s not the violence they’re afraid of. It’s that we demonstrated for a long time we will consistently vote on this issue.
Now, sure, there are dimwits out there musing about confiscation, but that’s like me talking about how I don’t want the federal government to be anything more than a military — there’s just not the political will for it (yet — but vote Frank J. 2016 and we’ll start the revolution!). We won the gun issue — there’s just a decent amount of noisy people who haven’t quite figured that out yet.
So stock up on guns and ammo if you want, but you’ll still have plenty of time in the future to do that, too. What we do need to continue to do is teaching our children to respect firearms and liberty. As long as that’s in the culture, any talk of taking away our rights is just dummies like Biden running their mouths off.
