Larry Correia on Guns, Gun control, and Stopping Criminals

Here's one of the best and most comprehensive treatments of the issues of guns, gun control, and the use of firearms by civilians that I've yet seen, sent to me by a friend and former student.  Well worth reading.  There's much in it that is excellent, but here's the one bit I will emphasize:

You crazy gun nuts and your 2nd Amendment. We should just confiscate all the guns.
Many of you may truly believe that. You may think that the 2nd Amendment is archaic, outdated, and totally pointless. However, approximately half of the country disagrees with you, and of them, a pretty large portion is fully willing to shoot somebody in defense of it.

He goes on to estimate that there are very conservatively 800,000 law abiding Americans who would refuse to be disarmed and would be willing to fight to prevent it.  I think he's right, and it makes me wonder what the government officials pushing for gun control are thinking.  Do they not understand this?  Did they miscalculate?  Do they have something in mind?  Conspiracy theorists will no doubt have an explanation (many of them!), but I suggest we not underestimate the power of stupidity coupled with powerlust.

In the end, it doesn't so much matter.  What's worth noting is that everywhere -- including New York -- firearms and ammunition are nearly sold out, and the less politically correct an item the greater the demand. This tells us a lot about how Obama's asinine statements about "coming together" and the mainstream media's incessant campaign against guns and gun owners are working.
