Casus belli: a Latin expression meaning "An act or event that provokes or justifies going to war."
"Son, you don't poke a wolverine with a sharp stick unless you want your balls ripped off." -- Grandpa Vanderboegh.
A Brady Buncher writes: "The late senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan once said that in the United States there was a 200-year supply of guns but a four-year supply of ammunition. So what if we stopped worrying about the guns and instead focused on the bullets?"
This is a socialist siren song warbeled by the elites, including FOX News contributor Greta Van Susteren, who proposed on the George Stephanopolous talking head show the other day: "The guns are there. If you really want to regulate you’ve got to be a little bit smarter, maybe regulate ammunition so that people can’t use their guns. That’s the smart thing."
"Smart thing"?!?!? First of all, as my Grandpa Vanderboegh used to say, "With 'friends' like these, who needs enemas?" Secondly, any effort to restrict ammunition as proposed is a faster way than firearms bans to arrive at the hellgate of civil war. As I have observed before, "Guns are easy. Logistics is hard." This is well understood by every shooter and liberty activist who has taken the time to think things through.
Most long-time readers recall when I told another collectivist puke:
I was once asked by an advocate of citizen disarmament what I thought of "gun control," and then, as I framed my answer, he added, "Give me the short answer.""Okay," I answered, "if you try to take our firearms we will kill you."I used to argue history, facts and common sense with such as you, but gave it up as a bad job.It boils down to that: "If you try to take our firearms (liberty, property, insert any other God-given, inalienable right), we will kill you."
The same goes for ammunition, Greta. I shouldn't have to explain that, but unprincipled prohibitionists such as you are nothing if not terminally stupid.
