So, anybody deciding its time to arm themselves?

I was raised in a family that hunts. Not passionate about killing anything that moves. But it is a reason to hang out with my relatives and longtime family friends.
Tell stories we have all heard in the past. Swap jokes,take each others money in poker, drink too much. Bring the younger ones along to introduce them to the culture.

Believe me. Animals are rarely in danger with this crowd.

But recent events over the last few years have finally pushed me to purchase handguns. Never liked the idea but my wife convinced me that the RW is plainly overboard nuts.

We have all seen how crazy these people are with the talk of civil war. No one on the left talks like this that I have ever heard.

What i find deeply disturbing is there is NO ammunition to be had. The shelves are cleared out. These people are getting ready.

In talking with people in the gun culture they assume I'm one of them. I guess I look the part with the covid buzz cut. But the stuff that they spout off about so freely is really revealing. Scary, reaffirmation that perhaps I made the right decision.

Is anyone else rethinking their stance on firearms?


Post script
I'd like to thank everyone for the thought provoking responses.

Some folks understood the point i was raising, some just reacted without much thought. Was expecting to get flamed, wasn't as bad as i expected.

Stay safe


Macintosh 1983

Cleaning out a household and found a mac. Dot matrix printer, cpu no keyboard. Manual dated 1983.

Is there a market for this? Hate to toss it. Not into old electronics.

Wonder what Hunter S Thompson would have to say?

Became aware reading HST in rolling stone during the 72 campaign. Always had an astute opinion on the political scene. Could cut through the bullshit like a knife.

While the most important thing is to vote Drump out

We really need to focus on keeping the house and taking the Senate. Remove his enablers and hamstring his administration should he god forbid get reelected.
Starting with Moscow Mitch.

Please donate to the campaign of your choice.

Republicans are afraid

They are afraid of standing against the president. They are afraid of his base.
They are more than willing to follow Brutus with their knives if its a secret ballot to remove him from office.

If any senator admits to vote one way or another ahead of time,

Could they be disqualified from sitting in judgment?

Aside from McConnell and Graham who have already gone on record are there any others.

I would think this cuts both ways in favor of removal or not.

25th amendment?

Who decides whether to invoke it. The cabinet, judiciary or legislative?

Where can I find a link to the transcripts?

Usually get works of fiction from my local library, but this is a special White House edition.

Signs for July 2 protest

Need ideas for signs for the kids in cages protest.

I have a couple of ideas for one side which really aren't forceful enough. Would like to hear any suggestions from others.

I got this one off off DU.

TRUMP

2020*

* second 20 will have a slash through it.



Dog owning politicans

Having just read the recent Vanity Fair article about Beto, I was struck by the fact the family black lab was always lurking in the background in the photos.

Anyone else currently running a dog owner?
