The people have spoken! I don’t know about anyone else in the GunsAmerica sphere of influence, but I for one am totally motivated about the kick-in-the-teeth the electorate just gave the ruling class! I feel as though a great weight has been lifted, and our Republic will live to see another day thanks to the election of Donald J. Trump.
I have no qualms about saying in this very public forum, with my real name attached, that if Clinton had been elected president, there would have been an all-out civil war within six months time. No matter your politics, Clinton is a criminal. When the rule of law is gone, and citizens have no legitimate means to hold lawbreakers accountable, there is only one possible outcome: chaos.
No one wanted to see that less than our veterans, and I feel like I can speak for us as a collective on that. I like air conditioning and having my garbage picked up at the curb once a week. Those simple luxuries don’t exist in many parts of this world. We have seen firsthand how ugly humanity can get over the last 15 years across our various conflicts in the Middle East, and none of us wanted that here.
But another four years of unconstitutional executive orders and a corrupt Department of Justice wouldn’t have left us much choice. Like many of you, I was so relieved when I woke up Wednesday morning, I almost didn’t know what to do with myself. But as the week went on, I started musing about our post-election situation. Below are some of my thoughts and observations:
Big Boys Don’t Cry
Watching liberal grown-ass men cry is so much fun it should be illegal. My god how I’ve reveled in this ongoing bitch fest. It has been like watching the school bully get spin kicked in the throat, but it goes on for hours and hours! For eight long years we have heard about the common good, sacrificing our convenience for Mother Earth, global warming, the benefits of open borders — and all the other hippie-dippie dogma. And as a people, we just pulled the rug out from under these collectivist fucks.
Watching the riots unfold has been something to see. Funny how there were no riots after Obama won in 2008 or 2012. So now, after years of dog piling on the police at every opportunity, all of a sudden the liberal cities need some cops to save them. I kind of wish the riot squads would just call in sick. I get an especially big chuckle out of some of the “anarchist” in the North West calling for a revolt. How, exactly, do the people that have been so opposed to gun rights plan on fighting that revolution? Bricks and bottles do okay in a place the cops are on a leash. But I double dare you to try that bullshit against people willing to shoot you. And try not to rip your skinny jeans throwing that Molotov cocktail nancy boy! Oh, sweet baby Jesus! Not a mob of effeminate, scrawny, spoiled children that cried for days after their candidate got shellacked. What a dark day for my people, we would have to draw straws for the privilege of who gets to kick your ass first.
I hate to tell all the constitutional scholars over in Oregon this, but we already fought a war about whether you have the right to secede. Turns out you don’t, not that we would miss you. But count on this- if Oregon should somehow manage to break away from the Union, I will be the first guy lined up for cross border ops to burn all your stuff. Just like back in the good old days! Ask AQ how they liked them apples! Thanks, Oregon, for making this a game we could all participate in! I thought I was going to have to drive all the way back East if things got dicey, but you brought the party to me. That was very courteous.
Back to the riots, I just can’t let that one go. I remember when “Occupy Wall Street” was in full effect, the thing I wanted most was for the government to just declare that a legitimate anarchy zone. I would have left my gun at home, and just waded through those weaklings with a battle ax. It’s less efficient, but I think it would have sent the message better. The only thing that keeps the weak from being slaves to the strong is civilized society. Without the protection of law and order, these people would be worm food or serfs. Protest about inequality, then get back in your Prius and drive back to the college daddy pays for. These kids are so stupid it’s scary. I hope they can all manage to overdose on Molly (MDMA for the uninitiated) before the next election.
I am guessing the gun industry will be changing. We are safe for four years, maybe a bit longer depending on Supreme Court appointees. I am betting a fair number of AR-15 only companies go out of business, now that the fear buying is over. The concealed carry industry will continue to grow, and I am betting we have a big fight coming as the feds attempt to restore the rule of law. The criminals that have been operating in the open the last eight years aren’t going to go quietly, and the corrupt sections of local government are not going to like the new sheriff. On another note, tactical merchandise will likely undergo a downturn because people aren’t afraid anymore, and that usually puts a damper on tactical sales. Just like militia membership, you can watch it ebb and flow depending on which party is in power (When Dems have control, tactical and militia memberships rise and vice versa when GOP has control). But hunting and sports shooting will probably grow thanks to a drop in ammo prices (Bye, bye Barack!). I myself plan to focus on PRS, and a few NFA toys. 300 Norma, here we come!
Speaking of NFA, this is the chance to get it repealed. I hope we can keep up the political pressure to get this unconstitutional tripe finished once and for all. The nonsense that goes into SBR, AOW, SBS, etc is insane. It so easy to accidentally break the law it’s scary. I was going to put an AR foregrip on the Desert Eagle .50 last week as a joke until it was pointed out that makes it an Any Other Weapon, and a felony. It doesn’t make the gun work any better or make it more concealable, it just makes it illegal. And does anyone really think that a criminal has ever stopped sawing off his shotgun because that makes it a different class of weapon? Not a chance.
I keep hearing a bunch of trash about how Trump needs to reach across the aisle to placate the people he just monkey-stomped at the polls. Heresy! Every soldier learns early on that the best time to kick someone is when they are down. This is our chance to turn the country back into something our forefathers would recognize. Burn the regulations, shrink the government, and cut my taxes! Bomb ISIS back to the Stone Age. Or further into the Stone Age, whatever analogy works for you. And tell the Europeans to stick their well-laid socialism in their well-laid ass.
The return of American military prestige. We have looked like a paper tiger for the last eight years, and that ends now. Like Superman getting his powers back, it is now imperative that we rip someone’s lungs out through their pee hole. With General Flynn at the helm, that is going to happen. I feel honestly a little bad for the banana republic that didn’t get the memo and tries to flex nuts like Obama is still running the show. There is always someone that wants a go. This part should be very entertaining.
Bye Bye Mainstream Media
This election cycle showed how outdated and out-of-touch our mainstream media is with Joe public. Only Breitbart News and a few other online sources predicted Trump would win — and win big. All the major networks were shocked to the core (probably because the candidate they were blindly cheering for lost). Having a $7 million-a-year talking head no longer matters. People want objective and accurate news. Online resources are faster, cheaper, have fewer ads, and have proven this year to be much more accurate.
Can We All Get Along?
Healing a racial divide. It is pretty insane how racial tensions have been exacerbated by the Obama administration in the last eight years to the point were you’d think we’re living in the 1960s. Only the left sees race, and they wield it like a weapon. Think back to the primary. The Democrats ran four white guys and the house of Clinton. We ran two Hispanics, an African-American, and a woman. Now, you tell me who the party of diversity is? The truth is we could care less about race. We only care about results. Same with the right wing’s embrace of Milo Yiannopoulos, who has become one of our champions. He is so out of the closet he ran the Dangerous Faggot tour this summer, and his popularity on Breitbart is off the chain. Like I said in the Army when surveyed about the end of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” I don’t care who you fuck so long as you do your goddamn job!
Welcome back to America boys and girls, and it’s not for the weak or faint of heart. Hang on to your hats, it’s going to be a bumpy ride!
