Journal Roblimo's Journal: It's Time for Democrats, Liberals, and Other non-Republicans to Buy Guns 25

So there you are, liberaling away, maybe doing a little protest over Wisconsin's Koch-sponsored Governor's attempt to impoverish state employees. And then an assistant attorney general in Indianapolis advocates using live rounds on people like you. Folks, it's time to buy guns -- and to get good at using them, too.

It's Time for Democrats, Liberals, and Other non-Republicans to Buy Guns

  • Especially coming from a man who's UID is 357!
  • But, in general, I've felt that they always should've.

  • I'm not sure what the point you're trying to make here is. Are you saying that if the protesters were armed that the police chief would have instructed deputies to use non-lethal force on them instead? The only thing that armed protesters would accomplish in this situation would be to justify the use of deadly force against them, in the case that things got out of hand.

    Your title carries the invalid assumption that there is a difference between a republican and a democrat. While in some local jurisdictions that may be true, we all know thanks to President Lawnchair that at the federal government the two-party system is (at best) a ruse. Everyone working as a politician in DC today is a conservative - every last stinking one of them. If there was a single non-conservative left we would have never seen the giant health insurance bailout passed into law, and we might have been smart enough to not have invaded Iraq based on powerpoint presentations loaded with conjecture and outright lies.

    You are way out of line. How can you sleep at night? I am shocked. Shocked and disappointed in you.

    The shotgun is the best Republican defense weapon on the market. Assuming you are using heavy bird shot (and go with birdshot B at least), the penetration through drywall is no where near as forceful as a slug. [] If angry Republicans make it into your house, it is tough to beat a 12 gauge for self-defense.

    Furthermore, the .22 is no caliber for anything other than practice. Yes, it is affordable. But its rimfire design makes it inherently unreliable in comparison to a centerfire round. Worse, the .22 is simply not capable of creating the necessary hydrostatic shock for dealing with today's GOP terrorist menace.

    If purchasing a rifle for Republican security, just buy a rifle. Don't mess around with a crazy pistol carbine. The new model Ruger Mini-14 are much more accurate than the old model with the thin barrel. They are more reliable than the foolishly designed AR models and the M-4 upgrades. The US Armed forced are even going back to the old garand action by reintroducing the M-14 rifle. And yes, the typical patriot would be better off with a 7.62 NATO than the 5.56 NATO.

    In short, when dealing with Republicans, bigger tends to be better. The pistol caliber (and get a .357 revolver with a 6" barrel or a .40 S&W automatic or bigger) is useful only to get you to your longarm, be it the trusty shotgun or the patriot's rifle.

    • Stopping power matters, but you're right that it's harder to shoot and costs more; I personally love the .22, but I also love the .45.
    • Richies, as a class of voters, do not exist. They just don't. And while some rich voters want to save some money on taxes, for the VAST majority of voters who swung right, it's all about government power and control. This union crap isn't about killing unions, it's about the fact that make it harder for us to manage our government, instead of our government managing us. S
    • Can you say all that shit with a big, deep, booming radio announcer voice? You know, since you're already reciting their scripts, I figured, what the hell, see if somebody will pay you, like they do with that guy.. what's his name? See, for me, it's kinda like football, it's just not so exciting unless I got some money in it. Pickin' up what I'm putin' down my brotha?

        No. I mean, I understand that you're just spouting gibberish for the hell of it, if that's what you mean.

        • Ah.. but you are just spouting somebody else's gibberish, which just happen to be untrue, as per your usual form.. Now either you should be paying royalties to FOX, or getting paid for your performance.. but do try to polish it up a bit. You're not quite ready for prime time yet.

  • People should be buying mass quantities of potatoes and bananas.

    Look man, I ain't fallin' for no banana in my tailpipe!

One good reason why computers can do more work than people is that they never have to stop and answer the phone.
