All of this talk recently has got me thinking... When rights are stolen by force from the people of other states, and now here, what happens? Do people stand up, take physical action and remove those who perpetrated these acts, or do they just hide their guns, go into their basement and post on the internet saying "muh freedoms" and "molon labe?" Resistance isn't hiding. Resistance is action. Resistance isn't waiting for the next election thinking that something will change when it was those elections that got us into this mess in the first place. What we need is a mass show of force that gradually increases until we are given back what is rightfully ours, and if they refuse, well, then I guess it isn't stealing if you take something back that was stolen from you. Another form of resistance is simply leaving, taking your skills, your money, your taxes, and all that you offer to somewhere else. This would do two things, it would put a dent in the coffers of a specific state's ability to fund its various programs and would also help solidify the political climate of the state you move to. Sure, it's more long-term and less direct, but it's better than voting. Sure, no one wants violence or to have to participate in some kind of revolution, but even the nastiest things have their place and become necessary once in awhile. Could that be today, tomorrow, months or years from now? Who knows? It could be or maybe not. We live in the present, like all past empires and civilizations did at one point as well. Let us not think that "we're 'Murica, we're perfect, we'll last forever and nothing will get as bad as in the past." Famous. Last. Words. That's the insidious thing about the comfort, luxury, and side effect of civilization, it eventually breeds a complacent, sheepish populace that is incapable of recognizing the threats to their liberty and unwilling to take the necessary steps to defeat those threats. I don't meant to sound like some tough guy, but I want you all to reflect on what resistance really means. Look at Connecticut, we all say "oh well their registration scheme only had __% compliance, so it didn't work." I would say that it most certainly did work. There's now thousands of people in CT that can be hit with charges for possession for many different reasons, but more importantly it forced the gun culture underground, to live like rum-runners during prohibition. If you can make your enemy have to live like outlaws, I'd say that you have succeeded. As for CT, I don't see them demanding the return of their rights, demonstrating daily en masse, or rioting. The leftist-communist scum are playing the long game. They will continue to marginalize us and force us underground. Sure, maybe they'll come for us, or maybe they'll just wait and brainwash our children, grandchildren, etc. so that they'll have no understanding of what we once had. What good is a 60 year old AK and crate of ammo in the basement that no one has used in years when an undeniable time of action comes? Not a whole lot. We cannot continue to allow ourselves to be marginalized further and collectively forced into the societal closet for taboo beliefs and lifestyles. Make yourselves known, be outspoken, and be bold. By all means keep the specifics of your personal inventory private, but it is most of all your mentality that must be shared. What is seen and experienced rarely is what is feared most, and what is commonplace is what is accepted. Whatever you each choose to do, just make sure it counts. So when the election comes, remember, vote harder next time and get tread on some more!
