Nazis Are Taking Over. Itís Time For Liberals To Start Buying Guns (Here we go)
Modern Liberals ^ | March 19, 2017 | Manny Schewitz

Guns have been a problem for the left for many years. Our country has a long history with firearms, and much of it has been troubling. We have had many mass shootings, and the NRA has pushed guns down our throats for years. They wanted you to believe that President Clinton and President Obama were going to take your weapons away as part of some vast conspiracy to round people up and put them in communist Muslim reeducation camps.

Things have changed. We now have a president who is friendly with the authoritarian regime in Russia, and who winks at white nationalists. Attacks and threats against Muslims and Jews have exploded in the last year. Indian workers have been shot at bars, a Sikh man was shot in his driveway, and Nazis feel safe to walk the streets again.

I know how some liberals feel about guns. This is a subject that has been dominated by the far-right for years, but it is time that we start taking it back for ourselves, because there are people out there who have gone beyond fantasizing about killing folks, and actually doing it.

I own a number of weapons. I grew up using guns and I can empty a full magazine of .40 caliber hollow point rounds from my concealed carry pistol into a target with pretty decent accuracy. At the same time, I have been a supporter of gun control laws – but we’re not going to see any progress made as long as Republicans control our government.

The far-right believes that liberals don’t carry guns, that we’re afraid of guns, and we want to ban them all. There are certainly some people on the left who do feel that way, but that’s a stereotype the conservative media loves to perpetuate to rile up their followers.

The difference between right-wing nut jobs with guns and liberals with guns, is that we liberals who pack heat don’t fantasize about overthrowing the government or holding off a SWAT team with an AR-15. We own weapons for self-defense and sport, not because we’re paranoid fanatics with penis compensation issues.

If you do decide to purchase a weapon and you haven’t used one before, take some training classes first. Be sure to know the laws in your local area, and understand the legal ramifications of using deadly force if you’re ever put into that situation.

Next, it’s time to decide what kind of firearm you need. For home defense, the best option is probably a pump shotgun loaded with buckshot. Unlike a high-velocity round from an assault rifle, buckshot isn’t likely to punch through multiple walls. If you plan on going the concealed carry route, the handgun you choose should be based on the size of your frame. The point of carrying concealed is that nobody should know that you have a gun, until you have to use it. Open carry is a very bad idea, even though it is legal in many states.

The far-right has been emboldened by a Trump presidency, and liberals buying guns will make them think twice. If you’re concerned about putting money in the gun industry’s pockets, there is always the option of buying a used weapon, just make sure you purchase it from a legitimate dealer.

The more firearms owners the better.

Any firearm owner who says they own guns but still supports gun control is very conflicted.

Anti’s lie all the time about owning
firearms.

Almost all of the guns I have purchased have been used.
My preference is for steel.

Two liberal families up the road from my folks are rabid gun nuts. One has an arsenal to be proud of. He doesn’t count his ammunition, he weighs it. I usually go to the range with them.

More commonly known as public schools and public or private universities.

If it ever comes to a war we can hunt them in the dark by just aiming in the direction of all the whining.

If I collect Derringers do I have a reverse-compensation issue...?

Nope. Not even going to think about it once. Does this guy with his pistol really think we're going to stop laughing at him because he can empty a mag into a target. LOL

Do you remember when all the Nazis used to walk the streets? Boy, I sure missed them when they went away. I'm glad they feel safe to be out again.
