Three from Vanderboegh

Mike Vanderboegh wrote some good ones yesterday. Worth the time to read. Sure wish he'd get Absolved out the door.

"No matter how insane she thinks we are she cannot wish us away. We are here. We exist and we are armed. Deal with it." - a response to Pia Lopez of the Sacramento Bee, who wants to "Simply ban the possession, manufacture, use or importation of weapons and ammunition clips that can hold more than 10 rounds."

Stacking up hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of bodies in a new American civil war over the forcible disarmament of the citizenry seems a curious way to, in her words, "prevent large-scale death and injury."

Perhaps she should rethink her proposal in the interest of preventing really "large-scale death and injury."

Paul Krugman gets it half right. (Unusual for him, I know.) - Krugman sees that the fight in the US is between the collectivists, those who think that everybody's property belongs to everybody, and the individualists, we who know that our property is ours alone. But Krugman bemoans threats of defensive violence from the individualists while ignoring actual offensive violence from the collectivists' lapdog police.

Secondly, when he says that the country needs to "declare that both violence and any language hinting at the acceptability of violence are out of bounds," he is only objecting to the threat of counter-violence to defend ourselves against the Federal Leviathan. Excuse me, Paul, but Nancy Pelosi and her ilk (cheered on by you and your kind) first plunked the threat of violence down on the table when the "health care" bill mandated our participation.

"Progressive" historical amnesiac sez: "You want a gun so you can kill police or soldiers. Are you out of your minds?" - Yes, as a matter of fact, we do, Mr. Collectivists. And history has shown that ours is NOT a hopeless fight, not by a long shot. Have you read news out of Iraq or Afghanistan lately?
