"Yes, master! Yes, master!"
he was gratuitously praising someone else's advocacy of the We Will Not Comply movement without ever having risked anything himself to support it. Indeed, he never met even an Open Carry armed civil disobedience that he liked. Internet prags who sit behind keyboards and do nothing else are prone to that, of course. Like intellectual chameleons, they shift colors lest someone notice them and require them to actually do something. They lack all convictions and so have to pretend to absorb by long-distance osmosis the principles of others -- principles that they themselves refuse to act upon, continually finding reasons why such actions are unworthy of prudent "right thinking" firearm owners.
Now Owens has found the convenient straw man of the huckster and money-whore Dudley Brown to condemn by implication those, like David Codrea, who have raised very real concerns over the Cornyn bill. To wit, "Fringe Pushes Back Against Cornyn’s NICS Background Check Fix."
Now I realize that the bill is endorsed by the NRA (and only in Owens' lickspittle world would that require uncritical examination given that organization's long record of preemptive compromises since the National Firearms Act of 1934), so Bob is merely once again doing his Igor impression -- "Yes, master! Yes, master!"
That doesn't mean that the rest of us ought to be suckered in by the straw-man arguments of an apparent moral and physical coward who consistently pretends to be one thing while being something entirely different.
LATER NOTE: Gee, I guess I'm getting pretty tetchy in my old age. But unfair? Before I emailed Bob a copy of the above, I re-read it to make sure I was not slandering or libeling the man. Nope, I concluded. It pretty much describes his positions over the years. So I sent it.
