"You tit! I soiled my armor I was so scared!" -- Sir Robin, Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
"Molon Labian" -- Pejorative term coined by David Codrea to describe people who chant "Molon Labe" on-line while simultaneously making excuses about actually doing something. Hence, "labian" refers to female anatomy. A more vulgar synonym would be "gun pussies." (Personally, I feel this is a slander on the female sex of our movement, most of whom are braver and more principled than the rest of us.)
The open carry demonstration is creating a public backlash, perhaps best exemplified by a comment posted by a Seattle Times reader identified as “Tri Juid.” After remarking that the demonstrators were all white, he made this observation: “The truth is these people are extremists and they're pushing the boundary in the wrong direction. And look what happened, they and their guns got kicked out. This extremism is back-firing on them. We don't need this in our lives.”
On the other side of the argument, supporters of the open carriers repeatedly insist they did nothing wrong. That may or may not be accurate, depending upon one’s viewpoint. “Wrong” in this case may not equate “illegal,” but in the political sense, many in the firearms community are wondering whether the House display and Senate decision a day later didn’t just derail every legislative effort to fix alleged problems with Initiative 594, passed by voters in November.
How is it, exactly, that you can "fix alleged problems" of 594? It is an unconstitutional infringement. AGAIN, YOU DON'T COMPROMISE ON ESSENTIAL LIBERTY -- YOU DEFEAT THOSE WHO TRY TO TAKE IT. Tell that to Gottlieb, Mr. Workman. There is no deal that he can make that we can't wreck with armed civil disobedience. Get that? NONE! And in the end, if he doesn't embrace the defeat of 594 instead of the "tweaking" of it, his appeasement will bite him and his bottom line of donations in the ass worse than his folding on background checks at the time of Sandy Hook.
