I see that the anti-gun fascists are out in force again in the aftermath of the Orlando terrorist attack. The lack of any serious response from the gun owning community is also common, and mirrors the lack of response by the GOP whenever the Democrats do something outrageous.
Once again, we have allowed a “Gun Free Zone” to disarm innocent citizens so they could be slaughtered like sheep. Where is our outrage? I think it is high time for us gun owners to respond vigorously for once. Let’s start a major, serious campaign to ban all “No Guns Allowed” signs in any places that don’t provide metal detectors and armed guards (and in the light of Orlando, I’m not sure how much good the latter are). Let’s get pro-active and start openly, and vigorously (and not just in response to anti-gun propaganda pieces), advocating, protesting, rallying, etc., for the removal of such signage and the state laws and policies that underlie them. Since it’s obviously impossible to stop bad guys from getting weapons, and since you can’t arrest folks until they actually commit a crime (not just talk about it), then we “Armed Americans” are, and must inevitably be, the primary backbone of the national defense against the kind of terrorism we just saw in Orlando. And, as it turns out, we are also likely to be just as effective against other kinds of “nut-job” public attacks, whatever may motivate them. WE, the ordinary armed American public, are America’s first, and best, defense against terrorism, just as we always have been, whether that terrorism came from British red-coats, hostile Indian groups, Mexican bandits, or simple American outlaws.
Don’t fall for the “private property” trap. Any business that offers services to the public is required to follow many rules, private property or not…
