Closed Hand - An Open Letter to the ATF's Jim Cavanaugh

Mike Vanderboegh at Western Rifle Shooters - Mr. Vanderboegh warns Mr. Cavanaugh that America's gun owners have learned the lessons of history. There is no longer any justice to be found in Amerika's courts. So they're on their own to defend themselves. We're living under "Waco Rules" now. Thing is, they're prepared to do defend themselves a lot better than the Cheyenne and Lakota were at Little Big Horn. Mr. Cavanaugh shouldn't expect another attack like the one on 28 February, 1993 to end with any of his men still alive. Compassion for predators didn't work then, so we won't give it now.

I mention this just in case somebody in your department feels as froggy as you did on 27 February 1993. We have absorbed the lessons of history, including recent history, and I don't think you'll get a second chance at backing away with your hands in the air.

After all, Christian mercy didn't do the Davidians a lick of good in the end, did it?

And if the justice system works like it did for poor Olofson, then it really is Waco Rules, right?

The Law of Unintended Consequences sure does bite.

Be safe.

And remember Little Big Horn.
