Down WithTyranny

Down With Tyranny wrote a wonderful post drawing on several recent sources. The title says it all: "Is it time yet for sane gun advocates to separate from the total crazies?"

As regular readers know, I'm not a big fan of Mayor Bloomberg, but when he's right, he's right.

The dark reality that the gun loons don't like to talk about is what a big business guns are. What we're getting here is, of course, the brilliant if sub-imbecilic crock of doody concocted by the NRA to turn the U.S. into its private Murder Inc.: Guns don't kill; people kill.

What's your opinion? Could the impassioned resistance be attributed to the fact that guns are "big business?" Does it start from the gun manufacturers themselves and trickle down? By the time it gets to the grass roots gun owners it's all about freedom and rights, but at its origins it's just market share and numbers?

Do you find it significant that critics of Mayor Bloomberg, such as the author of Down with Tyranny, find his gun control position to be right? Do you think that could apply to gun owners as well? Could it be that the vocal passionate ones represent only a small percentage of the whole? That would make their claiming such vast numbers misleading, as if every gun owner was in agreement with their positions?

What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.

  1. Mike Bloomberg is not totally anti-gun. He is anti gun for everyone except for himself. Under his world, the silly little peasants like you and I will be disarmed but he and his children will continue to enjoy the best armed security that money can buy.

    Bloomberg is a hypocrite and a liar.
