"Yet the poor fellows think they are safe! They think that the war is over! Only the dead have seen the end of war." -- Santayana's "Soliloquies in England," Soliloquy #25, "Tipperary" (Scribners, 1924, p. 102)
These innocents no longer have to worry about anything. They have inherited "a future free from gun violence."
David Codrea links to this piece of CSGV bilge: “I know I for one will never touch a firearm again.” Readers will recall that CSGV is the premier open advocacy group for a government monopoly of violence in this country. When I went to the link I was struck once more by the banner sentiment at the top of their site: "Imagine a Future Free from Gun Violence." Of course the sick truth behind this lie is that the only thing CSGV objects to is the people having the means and the right to resist their "government monopoly of violence." Santayana was right. Only the dead have seen the end of war -- or of tyranny, for that matter. So, until the Second Coming, you'd better be prepared to meet these practitioners of a "government monopoly of violence" with the only thing they understand and will respond to -- countervailing force. Got militia?
