My (Mike Vanderboegh)reply:
Apparently you have not heard of the ironclad Law of Unintended Consequences. Provoking a bloody civil war seems an odd way to prevent “gun violence,” for to get what you want will require the deaths of millions of your “bitter clinger” fellow citizens. How many of us are you willing to see dead in the pursuit of your “benevolent” proposal? Go ahead and revoke the Second Amendment and you’ll find out why the Founders insisted upon it (although you will not like the result, for it will upset your entire collectivist apple cart). Go ahead, do it and quit boring the rest of us with your idle tyrannical threats. I may not survive the opening blows, but at least my children will get to march in the victory parade down Pennsylvania Avenue. We might even finally get to the truth about Fast and Furious when our side takes over the bullet-pockmarked, paper strewn hallways of the Justice Department and delves into the files left behind by the would-be tyrants. The honesty of the war crimes trials that follow such a fratricide will at least be refreshing.
