Quote of the day—Cody Wilson

What excites me is giving this world to the politicians. Our strategy is to literalize and reify their nightmare, to give them the world they’re talking about.

[The options available to the politicians are to blatantly infringe upon numerous other rights or have it clearly demonstrated that they have no practical way to infringe upon the Second Amendment.

That works for me.—Joe]

  1. They could do like the Soviets and start mass arrests (or some form of mass oppression) of anyone with engineering, chemistry or shop skills. That would be round one. Mass arrest round two would include anyone who’s worked in any of the physical sciences, or anyone who’s done any sort of factory assembly work, then the ultimate round; anyone who can read or has lived closely with someone who could read.

    Solzhenitsyn posited that there is, I don’t recall his exact wording, a historical truism, or standard progression, and that it trends very similarly regardless of the original culture, rhetoric, rationalizations, or location, etc., of the authoritarian movement. The above paragraph is merely a set of stages in the progression.

    One could say that we’ve already entered the mass, targeted oppression phase, with the combination of gun laws, IRS tax status assignment, progressive income tax, labor laws, targeting of conservative groups, and special targeting with law suits and false criminal charges of key conservatives or conservative groups. I.e. we’re seeing the weaponization of the various government entities, codes, et al. It’s not just government, but anyone infected with the leftist bug– It’s “Us’ against “Them” and anything goes if you can get away with it. Facebook recently carved out a special exemption for transsexuals or some such, from their strict, real-name-use requirement. As Obama put it, probably not realizing that his words were part of the Standard Progression of the left over which he has no personal control; “We’re going to reward our friends and punish our (political) enemies”.

  2. Interesting stuff. Idaho has a law on the books saying that any firearm, regardless of action tipe or firing mode, up to one inch in bore, that is made in Idaho and stays in Idaho is not subject to any (or most) NFA or GCA restrictions. They however do not seem to have a provision specifically for protecting citizens against federal assaults regarding the same, so it’s purely symbolic, but there it is.
