Bullets, buttons, and the pillars of our country.
When I'm sitting in my yard, smoking my pipe, I sometimes think about what's going on in the world and how it affects me. Now, I try not to read or listen to news so much – a great deal, probably even a larger part of it is trash and poison. But I know that there are some things that tell me things are afoot – Russia is making moves in Europe, the Chinese are sending their ships into Japanese waters, etc. Similarly at home – I talk to my neighbors and people I interact with in everyday life to find out how they're doing. Their pride and joy of family or a hobby that they're keen on, whether they feel safe in their neighborhood, if crime's going up, or what. Take that together with some statistics provided by reputable and independent institutions, and you can get a pretty good picture of what's going on in the world.
And I can tell that the times are bubbling over – this is when history gets thick, you know? I want to be sure that me and mine are in safety, and I think it's downright stupid of our government – not unconstitutional, just plain stupid! - to try to take away from us the means by which we safeguard our freedoms, our lives, and our democratic country! I came across AR Mag Magnet, who sell tactical supplies and AR-15 accessories (like the much-maligned “bullet button”), and I thought – these guys get it. We're not going to shoot ourselves to death and rip apart America, but we have to make sure that outside aggressors don't try to undermine our way of life. The Russians, the Chinese with their cheap slave labor and police states will try to work us from all angles – including the domestic.
If we don't keep up our guard, they just might succeed, too. The Japanese said that if they tried to invade America, there would be a rifle behind every blade of grass. This is one of the pillars of our sovereign nation – that there are armed “minutemen” who are ready to defend their home, family, and neighbors at a minute's notice from threats “both foreign and domestic”. If we don't have that, it won't just be a strategic defeat – it'll be a blow to the very pillars of civic consciousness of citizens and patriots of the United States of America! Which is why these control freaks who want to regulate, restrict, and nanny us get on my nerves so much. They're not threats – they're just misguided, persistent idealists. That's what I think, at least.But I can't be the only one, right?
