I'd want to send him some cash for writing things like this:
Of course the congressman is now saying that using nuclear weapons on
American gun owners was an exaggeration, he just wanted to rhetorically
demonstrate that the all-powerful government could crush us peasants
like bugs, they hold our pathetic lives in their iron hand, and he’d
never ever advocate for the use of nuclear weapons on American soil
(that would be bad for the environment!), and instead he merely wants to
send a SWAT team to your house to shoot you in the face if you don’t
See? That’s way better.
But this post isn’t about that particular line from one foolish
congressman. It’s about all of the silly left wing memes that have
popped up since, trying to justify the congressman’s basic premise that
the 2nd Amendment is obsolete for resisting tyranny, and the government would obliterate anyone who failed to comply.
But basically it boils down to one side making the argument: The idea of the 2nd
Amendment resisting a tyrannical government is obsolete, because the
federal government is too overwhelmingly powerful, and has too many
So today I’m writing this for my left leaning friends and readers, in
the hopes that I can break down the flaws in this argument. I’m going
to try not to be too insulting. Accent on try… But I’ll probably fail because this is a really stupid argument.
