The “gun rights advocates” have been screaming at us that they need their arsenals to defend our freedoms, that tyranny from our own government is just around the corner if we don’t man the ramparts.
Well, there they sit, armed to the teeth while their wide screen TV just got stolen, along with their cars and major household appliances. Their wives and children have been kidnapped and sold into white slavery and their sons have been turned gay. And they just sit there in their living rooms on ammo boxes fondling their guns.
On their watch many of our most cherished civil liberties have disappeared!
Any one of us can be arrested and keep indefinitely behind bars without trial or even a hearing. So much for habeas corpus; sure it was in the Constitution but we don’t need it now. We can also be whisked overseas (via rendition programs) to be interrogated, enhanced or just ordinary. We can be killed when overseas by presidential fiat with no court order. All of our communications are being monitored and can be used against us clandestinely or through the court system without probably cause, without court order, or any kind of judicial review. (Listen up Bubba; this is what the big computer center in Colorado is really for. Yes, it is real, but they aren’t planning to confiscate your cars or your guns; they plan on keeping records of all your emails, phone conversations, internet searches, text messages, etc. you have . . . forever.)
While you sit around and tell stupid stories about how “Obama’s comin’ for our guns,” stories that were first floated by the gun industry itself because they are oh, so good for sales of guns and ammunition, most of your freedoms have been stolen under the freaking “Patriot Act,” which, of course, you were for because it contains the word “patriot.” Its real name is the “We Are Stealing All of Your Freedoms and Any Sense of Privacy You Once Had, Ha, Ha, Act.”
Lots of good you and your impotent guns have proven. Where were you when we needed to defend our freedoms? You said not a peep. And now when a marketing campaign posing as a defense of the Second Amendment crops you, you are marching in the streets! You are so dumb that in Obama’s first term you set records for gun and ammunition purchases because, what did Obama do? Oh, yeah, he signed a bill allowing you to pack heat in our national parks. That’s it. You are such idiots.
You aren’t defenders of our freedoms. You didn’t even blink when the Constitution was repealed by the fracking Congress. You are shams and cowards hiding behind guns you will never use because the real evil doers (the corporations) know they can distract you from what is really going on by a phony threat to your beloved guns and you will miss all of the real thefts going on.
But don’t worry, just look at the shiny lights and everything will be okay. Aren’t the lights reflecting off a freshly oiled rifle barrel pretty? Pretty lights, pretty lights . . . where’d your TV go?
