A comment on a repost of my open letter to NJ & RI pols contains this:
Well this is the second time he has said they need to see what the Supreme Court decides before pushing their law both in the first letter and now.So what happens if the Supreme Court says it is legal then what does he do, does he shuffle his feet on the ground like a 6 year old and say gash darn sorry boys turn in your guns.Please do not get me wrong I agree with him very much but I have seen the Supreme Court make many wrong decisions through history and this could be one of them. They sometimes add to much feeling in their decisions and not base their decision on the constitution and why and how it was formed.
First, my proposal to put off enforcement until the Supremes rule on these various intolerable acts is more likely to be acted upon (either openly or covertly) by the forces of state violence than a demand to repeal the law. It also positions us as more reasonable in the court of public opinion and uses their own supposed "legal" forms against them, exposing their hypocrisy. And that is a modest win. We look moderate and compromising, they look, well, like the grasping totalitarians that they are. Do I have faith in the current roster of Supremes? Of course not. Not before or after Heller. But that is not the most important point, which is:
Second, like the pursuit of the truth in Fast and Furious I am trying to buy time for our side to get ready. Time to organize, politically and militarily. Time for training. Time for logistics. Time for planning in 4GW in your own AO. Time. Time for more firearms to be purchased. Time for more ammunition to be laid back. Time. Time that we will desperately need if the Supremes eventually do uphold these intolerable acts, when of course, we will have to fight. Time.
