Far Right In Frenzy Over Possibility of Gun Legislation

One particular rant that has gained traction on white supremacist websites was posted on Dec. 28 by a blogger named Bob Owens and is entitled “What you’ll see in the rebellion.” In the piece, Owens speculates about what would happen if the “gun grabbers … confiscatory fantasy plays out.” It has already received more than 160 comments on Owens’ website, including this one: “Everyone talks of dying for their cause, because it’s glamorous. Killing for our cause is what it will take.’’

In Owens’ vision, the enactment of legislation being proposed in Congress would result in civil war and a targeted campaign of assassination that forces the president to stay in “his gilded cage except in carefully controlled circumstances.’’

“Even then he will be forced to move like a criminal. He will never be seen outdoors in public again. Not in this country.’’

Sobering. Especially when you consider that there are now more than 1,100 identified racist hate groups operating in this country stock-piling arms, preaching hate and itching for war against the federal government. The "United States" is positively a-swarm and seething with fascist organizations of every reactionary color and stripe: neo-Confederates and nazis, Klansmen, Aryan Nation spin-offs, white nationalists, skinheads, white power motorcycle clubs, far-right political organizations, home-grown militias, criminal gangs and other odd, one-off groupings of low-information losers, gun-fondling maniacs and fundamentalist, misogynistic misfits—with more springing into existence every day . . .

1. Today, I really question if I would pick the US as a place to live, far too many are going off

the deep end and the immaturity is overwhelming. No wonder DHS is engaged in so much surveillance.

8. at ease that BS

wishing for anything like that is unamerican. As much as I understand your sentiment.

I will be one of the soldiers putting down armed insurrection or unrest. The last thing I want is war in my backyard.

That being said, I will not hesitate to use lethal force on american citizens if they have become an enemy of this country.

5. The most important piece of legislation being considered is

BACKGROUND CHECKS for everyone with no exceptions. I thought all gun owners were law-abiding citizens.

7. I had to laugh at these fools (though it's not really a laughing matter.) It reminds me of the..

... Federal Government saying: "In order to save lives, we have to lower the national speed limit from 70 mph to 69 mph...
...we understand that this will be a tremendous loss to the car and truck owners freedoms but recent events have caused us to take this drastic action."

9. Is the Far Right ever NOT "in frenzy"?

I always thought frenzy was their organizing principle.

10. Why do we pay any attention to these lunatics?

They are emotionally dwarfed morons who live in their mothers' basements. If they try anything collectively they will be crushed like the bugs that they are.

11. I think Mr. Owens is gunning (pardon the pun) for a

visit from the Secret Service. Sounds like a threat to me.
