I will break my 'probably no blogging' for this, because even if Larry hadn't written MHI

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 comply.

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left wing memes that have popped up since, trying to justify the congressman’s basic premise that the 2nd Amendment is obsolete for resisting tyranny, and the government would obliterate anyone who failed to comply.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it boils down to one side making the argument: The idea of the 2nd Amendment resisting a tyrannical government is obsolete, because the federal government is too overwhelmingly powerful, and has too many advanced technologies.    

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.

You would think that idiots like Swallwell, ( a giant among mental midgets), elected in CA would remember what Christopher Dorner did to California.
One guy scared the hell out of CA so bad the cops shot up a truck with 2 women in it because apparently they thought the Toyota corporation had only built *one* blue truck.

Multiply that across the country and it isn't too hard to see what an obvious mistake it would be to start going 'door to door' raping the Constitution.

KM, that's a good point.

Throw in the inevitable wrong-address raids, and someone deciding to settle scores by anonymous 'He's got a machine gun!' calls... oh yeah, that'd help matters.

What is going on has little to do with guns or gun control. This is about kicking off a civil war. Your Government WANT's you to fight. They WANT a civil war. They WANT to be able to say that "white redneck Jesus loving baby killers got a Russian nuke and set it off" Why? Because 22 TRILLION dollars in national debt. A debt so vast it can NEVER be cleared. The only way to clear that is the same way "they" made the two trillion dollars that vanished from the pentagon go away. 9/11/2001. After all it worked on a small scale. So they Nuke New York City. Declare it to be an act by "white terrorist acting with Russian allies". A Russian city gets "nuked" in Retaliation. We get martial law --forever, and the global 200 trillion dollar debt go's away--Ray

If the govt is so powerful, why does an armed citizenry frighten them so. It cant be about safety otherwise the carnage in our cities would be addressed with some plan different than disarming us old fat guys in the suburbs and country
