Jeff Goldstein: “A sad announcement”

Protein Wisdom:

I know I probably shouldn’t have done it — especially because yesterday was a snowy day with the temperature here in Colorado dipping well below freezing — but on a whim I took all my guns and ammunition out in a small skiff on one of the nearby lakes and, sad to say, the boat capsized when I stupidly tried to prove to myself that I could do it Gangnam style, even in an inherently unbalanced situation, while also tending to a fishing pole.

All my firearms and my ammo stockpile is now, as a consequence, sleeping with the fishes.

Just so you know. All you who are reading here. And no, I have no plans to replace them at this point. Because children.”

    Funny thing. I recently fell victim to the same sort of unfortunate events.

    Seems to be some sort of epidemic.
    Just sayin’

    I was overcome with grief and sold all of mine to that one guy.

    It must have been That Guy who crept in and stole all of mine while I was at the Barbra Streistan movie

    Really? Hell.. I forgot to reseal the ziplock bag on mine and forgot to put them back in the fridge overnight. They developed a nasty mold and flies by the next morning.. I scraped off the worst of it.. chopped them up and fed them to the chickens…

    I really don’t see a threat here. The dens are just ruffling their feathers. This country is already so divided, it wouldn’t take much to take this to the next level. Just think, suppose they try to pass something more than Clinton did which turned out to be absolutely nothing. How would Texas react? Do you really think Texas would allow its citizens to be disarmed or allow to be disarmed? Once Texas took its stand, how many red States would follow. By my count there are a hell of a lot more red States than blue.

      I haven’t wanted to minimize the threat but I think you are exactly right. Obama appointed an archetypal blue ribbon commission to look at this. Why would he do that? He is kicking the can down the road. Waiting for the emotions to cool. By appointing blue ribbon commission, nobody can say he isn’t doing anything and none of the other rabid gun grabbing Democrats in the Congress will want to get out in front of the commission. It is a delay tactic.

      Why would Obama want to delay? Because he knows this situation is a powder keg. You start talking confiscation in much of the country and things turn politically ugly quickly. Obama doesn’t want that right now. He is still hoping to regain the House in 2014 and fighting this battle might ensure that is impossible.

      I doubt much will come of this. A few cosmetic regs here and there but nothing too serious.

    I had mine bronzed so they would last forever. Now they sit on the fireplace mantel next to my bronzed baby shoe’s for all to admire.

    There is some bad karma here.
    My wife got on my case and said that I was bragging when I posted that I had bought an AR 15 and some ammo. Wouldn’t you know it ? She was right.
    That same guy who got Ray Davies stuff was also a computer hacker and safe cracker and he found out who I was and where I lived, disarmed my alarm system, put a trank in a steak that put my dog to sleep, cracked my gun vault, raided my fridge and ate all of my wife’s leftover meatloaf (not too upset about that because I hate how she makes it) and took my stuff too. I won’t get new guns either. I will let my wife’s next meatloaf leftovers harden up and use that as my home defense weapon.
