From Claire Wolfe This is for you, elitist scribblers. Here’s an invitation. Shut the hell up and come and take them. You can start at my house. I’m getting kind of old now — well, oldish — and I don’t have the fire I used to. I just want to live a peaceful life in a peaceful place. I don’t care to get roused over every new crisis. I don’t like to fight. So I should be an easy target. Come to my house. Come and take my guns. See how it goes. I had good training in handling firearms, but I don’t practice as much as I should and I’m really not very ready for this. Again, this makes my house an easy place to start your confiscation campaign. Come and take them. I’m not some big muscle guy. I’m a skinny woman. Again. Easy. Come and take them. I’m not a member of the big, bad NRA — you know, the monsters that are single handedly responsible for making “gun violence” possible. Surely I’ll surrender easily, then. Come and take them. Though politically radical by your standards, I’m not a wild-eyed fanatic hiding out in a bunker in one of those infamous “compounds.” I’m just a regular woman who shares cookies and soup with the neighbors and chats with the clerks down at the post office about their bad backs and the latest town news. Absolutely nobody who knows me imagines I’m any sort of danger to them or anybody else. But I own guns. So come and take them. I have dogs, but they’re both old and friendly. So they shouldn’t get in your way. Anyhow, it’s just become routine these days for enforcers to shoot the family pets. So no, the dogs should be no obstacle to confiscating my firearms. Come and take them. Although it’s not really possible to be a law-abiding citizen in this age when each of us routinely commits three felonies a day without knowing it, I do try. I try to be a good neighbor, a good person, and a good citizen. So really, what do you have to fear from me? I’m your perfect test case. Come and take them. I’d like to live another 20 years — 30 would be better — but I’ve lived a full life and to die now, whether at the hand of a freelance criminal or a tyrant, wouldn’t be any great tragedy. So come and take them. Really. See how it goes with one weak, skinny, peaceable woman who wishes no harm to anyone. Come and take them. I invite you. See how that goes. Then times that by 100,000,000." http://www.backwoodshome.com/blogs/ClaireWolfe/2015/10/09/come-and-take-them-start-here/ I suppose this is an open invitation to Ginny and Phloyd as well.
