"Sir, that's not enemy fire. The battle hasn't begun yet. That's our own pyrotechnics going off." Gottlieb: "It's never too soon to surrender, private."
Gottlieb's Igor is paving the way for his master to preemptively surrender. "If it comes down to Jeb v. Hillary, who do gun owners vote for?"
How about "None of the above?" How about we spend our election day cleaning our rifles and polishing our armed civil disobedience plans? Besides, what makes these guys think we're going to actually HAVE a 2016 election? Habit? Inability to sense when the paradigm has shifted? Because we're Americans and we can't have another civil war?
You will note that Workman blames the loss of I-594 on firearm owners who sat out the election, NOT on his boss's and the NRA's childish games that alienated everybody. Of course, it's ALWAYS someone else's fault in Gottlieb's universe. And if you don't like it, you can always send him more money to achieve the same losing result.
And I'll make another prediction. Gottlieb, Workman and the whole SAF crowd will be nowhere to be seen at the Yakima Arms Expo this weekend. If we all get killed, they will write us off as collateral damage of our own making and fundraise on the incident before our dead bodies are safely in the ground.
