To damn lazy

I'm a solid firearms enthusiast. I can't afford to be a proper gun nut, but I can hope.

The news is filled with a solid effort to ban rifles and other such for the good of the country. I don't hate them or even look down at them for one reason. They have good cause to. I'm not saying their solution is right, but they have more backing their views than the anti-vax nuttery out there.

So let us say they get the AR platform banned. "No good reason to have an assault rifle" and such. Maybe even get a new Assault Weapon ban passed through the government into law.

What do you do?

Well when the last AWB went into effect they made it more palatable for the masses by putting a time limit on it. Let us just say the efforts this time get it passed without that is successful.

The online anger at the current push borders on lunacy for one reason. Most people are verbally enraged, but lazier then fuck. Serious. The desk commandos simply are to lazy or to foolish to do anything. They also are their own worst enemies. The images of the Bundy standoff was material for gun grabbers wet dreams. The images of the quasi-militias at recent rallies about statues is the latest examples of how to look bad, cut your chances of getting wide support, and pretty much helping the ones pushing for harsher limits on guns.

Note I have not said Left wing, intifada, liberal, conservative, alt-right or Tea Party. Why? Because labels have this habit of helping define an issue, but hurting the chance of fixing the issue.

...but back to the idea of a new AWB

What do you see happening? I see a few individuals getting busted in Federal stings, I see a few mental cases going off the reservation and hurting good people on both sides, and I see after that first fire...apathy.

People are scared of losing their middle class house, their job that pays good money and allows them to have that bass boat, and the basic idea that every one out their could be a fed and the support from a friend could as easily be the case being built against you. Don't drop the soap skippy.

That fear, the apathy of the 'common man' and the "the AWB isn't really that bad" view will make the "rise up against Soros and the international gun grabbers" mouths of today become the "I have too much to lose" of tomorrow.

Gun laws are passed because of apathy.
