The Power of Persuasion


I understand they used a similar argument to persuade Saddam Hussein to step down.

  1. If there was ever a time when you need your firearms the most, it's in times of civil disarray. Since when do the halfwit law enforcement pukes get to unilaterally repeal the second amendment? Fuck that. Cold. Dead. Hands.

  2. BTW, per the Washington Post, the 4th circuit ruled US citizens could be detained indefinitely without being charged or convicted at the President's order.

    We got no fucking rights at all-- just privileges to be revoked at the whim of government.

  3. This will be a fun political litmus test. Will the liberals all of a sudden find new respect for the second amendment while the conservatives praise law enforcement for finally taking control of the situation.

    Meanwhile the libertarians will discuss what model of gun is in the picture.

    Have at it.

  4. I just want to mention that I really dug the Suicide Girls ad that bOING-bOING had on display, and that, if Reason could replace the "Master-Your-Own-Bodyweight-Through-Vigorous-Floor-Humping" banner with something from, I'd subscribe to your mag faster than you can say "scrotal rug-burn."

    That is all.

  5. H. Dan: has interesting ads too. I happened to see one on yesterday, and now is currently one of my favorite sites. Even though I don't follow sports. (Although I'm sure its one-note charm will fade with time.)

  6. Tell them to get out, then block a route out.

    Jesse Walker,

    This definitely corraborates (sp?) most of the story you checked out yesterday.

  7. Are those sons of bitches at least going to compensate their victims for the legal guns they confiscate? I think not. And I'm willing to bet that in addition to actual, workable weapons, they'll also take things like the valuable antique silver-handled gun that great-grreat-great grandpa used in the Civil War.

  8. Flyover-

    Kinda like here?

  9. It's almost beginning to look like not only that Amendment 1 is gone and Amendment 2 is in danger, but Amendment 3 looks like it may be in potential trouble with these pictures.

    AMEND. 3: "No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law."

  10. mediageek,

    That's it. I still think that story is exaggerated for effect, but largely accurate.

  11. FC-

    No disagreement. The website obviously caters to lefty causes, but it's still worth reading.

    Matthew, the 2nd Amendment has been the redheaded stepchild of the bill of rights since at least the 1930's. The way I see it, they're just now getting around to infringing on all of the others to the same extent.

  12. Handsome Dan-
    C'mon, that'd be (ahem) suicide. Who's going to read my latest Social Security thumbsucker when they're a click away from ogling Quinne?
