There's talk out there of revolution, of pending civil war and insurrection if Obama and his leftist posse try to grab our guns. That talk comes from a lot of people, and some of it is heartfelt and serious indeed.
That notwithstanding, Obama and his gun-hating supporters, the ones who backed him in the first election, got nothing from him, backed him again and then patiently waited for something like the Connecticut murders to happen so they could attack the rest of us, these people are not being deterred. They and their sycophants can hear the drumbeat as clearly as I can or anyone else who is listening, so the obvious conclusion is that they've decided to ignore it; they either believe that no one will stand in opposition to their abrogating our Second Amendment rights or else they think that they'll win the coming fight easily, either by imprisoning or killing those Americans who believe that the rights recognized by our nation's founders and enshrined in our Constitution and Bill of Rights still belong to us today.
The storm clouds do appear to be gathering on the horizon. Whether they'll materialize here and erupt into a storm or not I cannot say. However, when a neighbor asked me just a short time ago if I was buying more ammunition for that possibility, I told him that no, I was not.
Ammo I have. What I'm spending my money on now is a new treadmill and some free weights, and I've renewed my gym membership. Any sloppy sad sack can pull a trigger, but the battle, if it comes, is going to go to the side with the most shooters who can fire and maneuver, engage and fall back, and keep going until they are well past being exhausted.
I'm not in bad shape for my age, but I've been in better shape. Now I'm serious about getting back to that peak again. You might want to assess your capabilities too if you take your rights seriously. I can't predict right now but it very well could come down to that. If it does, are you willing to accept defeat just because victory or even a brokered peace was too hard to reach for? What kind of physical shape are you in today, and if it's not the best shape you've ever been in, what are you doing about it?
Just some food for thought. For academic discussion only, of course.
