A Quote of the Day goes to Mike W.
I think the sole reason we don’t often see pro-gun folks being violently attacked by virtulently anti-gun bigots is because their would-be victims are armed. You don’t hear of PinkPistols members being gay-bashed either. I believe many of them would commit violence against us (or have someone else do so) if the opportunity presented itself and we didn’t have the means to fight back.
There are a million jokes about people having sex with sheep and pigs. And there was this little “Brothel” in Washington.
But you don’t hear much about people having sexual congress with Lions, Bears, or Tigers. Hell Zappa Chronicled a story of sexual congress with a Mud Shark but you won’t hear such things with a Bull Shark, or a Tiger Shark, or a Great White.
Why? Because such things won’t stand for abuse and has the power to say “No” in their own universal language.
But they don’t act on their fantasies, while other hate groups do. Why not? Because we have the power to universally say “No” by returning force to those who wish harm upon us.
“One bleeding-heart type asked me in a recent interview if I did not agree that ‘violence begets violence.’ I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure—and in some cases I have—that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy.” -Col Jeff Cooper
