Guys, I have an idea on resolving this dispute with the liberals over guns.

Times have changed. So shouldn't we ask "do we REALLY need guns in our lives?" Yeah, an evil question, I know. So here's my train of thought-

We get rid of the NRA, GOA and JPFO. And they get rid of the ADL, SPLC and ACLU. Seems like a fair trade, doesn't it?

Whatcha think? Just might work! (snicker snicker)

...as long as folks give money to these organizations...with tax dollars towards the ACLU...not gunna happen...better to vote them irrelevant...in the case of the ACLU, vote in conservatives and their money tree will wither away...

Did y’all know that there was once an ACLU Chapter that defended and argued for the Second Amendment? The Chapter was disestablished and subsumed by the state level organization that may have been established for that novel purpose. All lost in the mists of years...

When I was a young lad I too had utopian ideas; if only, fill in the blank. But reality set in when I realized that we all have biases. Evil exists and it will NEVER be defeated. "The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance;"

The phrase "us against them" is a misnomer when dealing with the government. It is "YOU against them." Or another way to look at it is, limited resources against deep pockets, you are not a member of the club.

As an acquaintance once told me regarding taxes, "The Government can win any fight it chooses to fight." Not always true in other areas, but without finances, it's a high, steep climb.
