I hear it all the time, especially from my conservative friends.
The tough-guy edicts.
“They’ll never take my guns!” they declare. “Not unless they pry them out of my cold dead hands.”
But I think Jim Karger got it right in a July 31 column published over at Lew Rockwell.
“And, when I hear this crazy talk, I agree with them openly. ‘You are right. They will pry your gun from your cold dead hands,’ which I often follow with the question, ‘And where will that leave you except face down in a pool of your own blood in the middle of the street, just another dead fool resisting the State?’”
Let’s be brutally honest. If a SWAT team comes rolling down your street demanding your guns, you will either meekly give them up, or you will end up a bloody corpse. Even the well-armed civilian will not win a gun battle with police armed with military style weapons, top-grade body armor and riding in virtual tanks.Details
