Gun-nutz "fearing the government"

Yet at the same time cheering on the beat down of the Occupy Movement.

2. Big Time. Cons love authority, are real "lock 'em all up" "law & order" types, the lot of them

Right until they get a municipal fine or traffic ticket. Then it's screeching about tyranny and freedom and shit.

I've called them on it too when my friends pull that shit. They sheepishly chuckle.

6. Hmmm. I've been called a "gun nut" here...

And I was part of the Occupy movement here in Portland. Think my fear of the government is irrational?

7. No.

But any idea you may have that your gun can do anything about the government most certainly is.

8. Oh, I have no such illusions.

Any insurrection that faced an intact government/military would be, well...fucked. There are certainly plausible scenarios in which the government would no longer control parts of the military - many recent civil wars in other nations have played out like that - and in such situations, I suppose civilian arms might be important. But I don't consider either of those scenarios to be particularly likely here. I do think our nation as currently constituted is probably not going to last all that much longer (as in not beyond my lifetime and I'm in my thirties), but I expect a much less violent dissolution. I certainly hope that's the case...
