I was looking to see what the reaction of the gun prohibitionists was to BATFE’s decision to postpone any immediate decision on M855 and their proposed framework. After checking the Brady Campaign’s website and finding nothing, I came to the conclusion that I’d have to start slumming it. Yes, I went to the Facebook page of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (sic).
I knew I’d find off the wall comments there and I wasn’t disappointed. However, these comments came from CSGV and not one of their followers who project their own violent tendencies upon us.
When asked why we “prize” green tip bullets, the answer was not because they are cheap or because they are accurate. The official answer was, not unexpectedly, “because of insurrectionism.” And in response to another person who asks why citizens need “armor piercing” bullets, the official answer is to kill law enforcement officers and military service members when we sense “tyranny”.
When I read these answers to the Complementary Spouse, she just looked at me like I was insane and then said, “Are they really that stupid?”
I’m not sure if Ladd is that stupid but I’m sure he would have made a good commissar if he had grown up in Stalin’s USSR. He certainly is good at spouting the party line no matter how ridiculous it sounds.
