If you do, I hope you do not jump to an erroneous conclusion with respect to the political origin of these shocking laws, enacted by the Congress, signed by the President, or the then-president, and, at least so far, largely approved by the judiciary.
When one cannot rationally articulate his opposition to another's argument, he can be expected to fall back on reductio ad absurdum. I do pray that what might happen, due to ignorance and intemperance, does not happen to those who know not what they do but insist on doing it anyway. My above lengthy post was intended as honest and appropriate advice. Please understand that if unwise decisions are made, and positions announced, by the overwhelming majority of the members of a group, the laws I have mentioned may endanger the group and its members at large, particularly if the group's leaders do not step in -- arguably giving their approval through their silence. I really think that the latter is an imaginary horrible, but who knows for sure? Worse things have happened.
Your post does not surprise me in the least as it fits with all of your other posts on this board.
I am already on the infected pustule's lists. My actions on issues that have nothing to do at all with firearms or the second amendment are the reason I am on these lists.
I really don't care if my words put me on another list.
When we are afraid that our words guaranteed by the 1st Amendment will place us in danger of incarceration because they now place us in the category of domestic terrorist simply because the government (tyrants) have redefined terrorist then the time for diplomacy is long past.
Stay silent if you wish. Your decision. Your decision, in my opinion, shows that you agree with their position.
