Guys as many of you know I do not comment on political anymore. But allow me to enlighten some of you a bit. I am a firearms rights guy as many of you know. You can debate the topic as deep as you like, but there is something very basic here. There is a point with firearms ownership where ~I~ will not give anymore. If the US government wants to take anymore past this point they are going to have to fight me in a very literal sense of the word. There are tens of thousands of people who believe just like me. Just look up total membership of the NRA.
So now we are talking about having reached a point of open rebellion. The rebels, that would be folks like me if we got that far god forbid, would loose. But well it would still be a very, very, ugly matter. There are certain points where people like me will back up no further. Let us all hope and pray it never comes to that.
But well if it does to quote the movie Tombstone "say when." Argue all you want about what kind of right something is, but I have a very deep held beliefs about when enough is enough and am willing to put my money where my mouth is.
To be honest, I don't quite follow your logic here.
The reason individuals are talking about more restrictive gun laws and more gun control is because of the belief gun-related violence and murder has been on the rise.
Your response to this is to say "rebellion," which would....presumably entail gun violence. This does not play into a narrative of "responsible gun owner willing to reasonably work on current issues." This plays into the narrative of "gun owner willing to hurt others." You may not mean it at such, but it doesn't look good at all.
I'm not sure that route would convince the opposing side that your position is a reasonable one worth listening to. It's only going to cause fear.
Personally, I think it would be better be more politically active, vote and voice your views, and try to show ways that maintaining the right to bear arms as is is more beneficial than harmful.
Just my two cents. :/
