Beto O’Rourke has tight pants. Not because his breeches are too small for him but because he’s too big for them. He says “Hell yes, we’re going to take your ar-15, your AK-47”, like everyone who has one is just going to put it in a box and take it to wherever they are told to turn it in. Anyone who thinks that’s going to happen is clearly delusional. Responsible gun owners believe that the second amendment is a safeguard against tyranny and Beto is exactly the kind of tyrant they’re talking about.¬† If you think this is a good strategy for reducing violence in America, in the plainest terms, you are dead wrong. There will be blood in the streets and plenty of it. Of course whoever declines to comply will be tagged with some threadbare old tag that makes them¬† out to be a murderer but the fact is they are MADE to be criminals. Before that, they were, for the most part, peace loving, law abiding citizens. This is not, however, to say they hold still for being threatened. You underestimate the resolve of these people at your peril.

If you have read any of my comments you may have noticed that I have a large collection of rusty old saws that still cut. Here’s another one: When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. The violence won’t even slow down.
