Quote of the day—Defiant Colonial Rebel

Just argue that your AR is an undocumented gay wedding cake. They won’t be able to touch it.

They have a point.

It has also been suggested we would be more successful if we argued the NRA is our church and guns are a required part of our religion.—Joe]

    • The Sikhs at the Milwaukee shooting carried blunted knives as a compromise with the authorities. I’m waiting for a politician to propose we can CCW only with replica firearms.

  1. Libs don’t care too much about religion. But since they claim that we fetishize guns, maybe agree with them and claim that we ARE all sexually dysfunctional without our phallus substitutes? Can’t discriminate for reasons of gender/sexual confusion, so fetish objects should be protected.

    • The ADA! I love when someone reads their brand shiny new law closely and finds a way around it, then the SJW’s (Social Justice Whiners) complain about loopholes, never mind they spend a lot of money to lawyers to ensure the harsh laws they pass don’t apply to them.

  2. I don’t think the religious angle will work with this bunch either.
    We may need to add Magpul crystals and EOtech incense burners to our ARs.
    Now we do have our mantras, See the sight, press the trigger, see the sight, press the trigger!.
    Feel the breeze, compensate.

    • Now that anyone with a tame doctor in California or Colorado can get a prescription for the stinkin’ weed, we’ll have to see how that plays out in the 21st century.
      The law Christians have been using to protect their practices from Leftists was put into place to protect the Native American religions that use Peyote and other similar plants. That the same law can protect the Leftists’ Number One Enemy is especially galling to them.

  3. This religion comment presents a sort of low-hanging fruit for someone like me who’s just begun trying to understand the Bible in relation to world history up to current events.

    Of course Jesus said to the apostles, He that hath not a sword, let him sell his garment and buy one…

    Of course it doesn’t end with that, because he goes on to say, For it is written, He shall be reckoned among the transgressors. It was to fulfill a prophesy.

    I take a personal, and also historical, meaning from that. Are we, the armed law-abiding, not reckoned among the transgressors? Yes, absolutely. Bigly. Falsely and unjustly. And if we look to understand his meaning, then we might also look to understand when he says, Blessed are those who are persecuted in my name, and other similar words to that effect, a concept which is repeated several times throughout the Old and New Testaments.

    This is a world at total war, and in fact that sidearm of yours is a token, or symbol, or metaphor, of the greatest weapon of power in this war, which is the truth. The evil sense it, and hate it, and it drives them, even the most clever and subtle ones, to expose themselves.

    It can also get us into personal trouble (aside from the honor of being falsely accused by the servants of evil), so understand what we’re dealing with, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

    So a) you’re exactly on message, and b) seriously, and c) it’s right there in the Bible whether you like it or not; we will be, we MUST BE, indeed, reckoned among the transgressors (but not actually be transgressors ourselves) and so it’s a tough assignment, isn’t it? I mean, should we choose to accept it.

    • Lyle, I think you might enjoy Rolf Nelson’s novel “Heretics of St. Possenti”. (Actually, I’d recommend it to everyone.)
