Just got an email appeal from the Dems to chip in a donation to try and legislate some kind of gun control measures. The email came in response to the NRA‘s expected “NO WAY!” reaction to the proposed ban on assault rifles, huge ammo clips and any form of sensible registration policy to try and keep these weapons out of the hands of extremist nut cases in America in order to prevent another mass murder rampage.
While I’m in favor of some type of gun control for the above reasons, I didn’t throw any money in the jar because…
A. I have no confidence whatsoever that it would actually be channeled for this designated use;
B. I’m an anti-authority Libertarian
C. The consistent hypocrisy of our government who says they want to keep dangerous weapons out of the hands of American extremists, while shipping billions of $ of weapons overseas, paid for by our tax dollars, in order to arm extremists around the world, including Islamic extremists we are supposed to be at war with (i.e. Libya), or “allies” like Pakistan who channel them to extremists to kill our soldiers…
D. While not an actively participating survivalist/prepper, I am a boy scout at heart and “Be prepared” remains my motto, even if it means asking my wife if she also brought her keys when we go out on date night “just in case” and…
E. I do believe that there is at least a 50/50 chance of some dystopian future awaiting all of us within the next 20 years, whether it’s the Terminator scenario after the Singularity (my personal pick), or nuclear war, or environmental upheaval, or zombie apocalypse, or ____________(insert your favorite doomsday scenario her for WTSHTF and TEOTWAWKI).
Clan Kelly – want the bunker,and a bit of the zombie ammo would be nice
Clan Kelly – oh yes and of course true blood
Richard Long True Blood…meh. I’m so sick of whiny Suzie Stackhouse, semi-hunchback/aggressive-forward-leaner Eric, and the whole fairy schtick.
Clan Kelly – missing fringe already…sigh…
Richard Long Let’s root for the Gov’ner minus one very long shard of glass!
Clan Kelly – True, true. I’d say 90/10 chance. Michonne went easy on him compared to the comics. That was probably the most uncomfortable three pages Ive ever read.
The Dead End Coat Girl – Yeah, I’m having trouble with sending weapons to just anybody to buy friendship.
Clan Kelly Cheerleader – I am trying to learn useful shit about plants and I have a goal of learning survivalism.
