Perhaps they are correct. I dunno. I don’t think so though.
They say the Soap Box has failed. Yes, it has.
They say the Ballot Box failed. Nope, the People of Virginia failed to bother. They got what they got because they failed to choose. They let 40% (yes FORTY PERCENT) of the voters choose. The other 60% stood by and did nothing….Didn’t bother to give their vote…and got shit on because they didn’t bother to vote.
Time for the Ammo Box? Perhaps. But that’s a step one should take only after careful consideration.
“Make haste Slowly”….Kinda hard to step back once that Box is opened.
The claims that the folks at Lobby Day in Richmond should have broken the barricades and stormed the building? Yeah, like that would have helped. Like the press would’t have spun that against the folks wanting their Second Amendment rights. Like that wouldn’t have given the Governor the excuse he needed to bring in police and arrest a bunch of folks…..
And I’ve noticed that all these folks who think that the Lobby Day and other such groupings ion solidarity should have turned out differently are always somewhere else. Yes, I too believe that it was a waste of time. I didn’t go, and I think that being there was ineffective. I don’t think that they should have started a civil war either. Once you go there it’s hard to unfuck the goat.
So all those folks that use terms like “Guncucks” and think that there should have been more “Civil Disobedience” and such are always Keyboard Commandos…..They are never willing to be on the front lines, They refer to “Ghandi” and his protests….forgetting that tens of thousands of folks got beaten, crippled and some killed. And that those were PEACEFUL protests (on the part of the Indians, anyway). I don’t see these folks stepping up for their Hickory Shampoo. I don’t see them willing to be teargassed nor possibly shot. They expect someone else to do it.
Well boys, why don’t you stand up and act? I don’t really think you’ll accomplish much, and you certainly won’t do my side any good in the press nor the minds of legislators…But at least you will be identified as a troublemaker and you can get the “Boogaloo” you want. So step on up and make it happen, boys.
Or shut up .
Get off my side.
