Hey, y’all, Zelda here.
I got somethin’ to say about all the folks who are totin’ guns around as though they got a right to be as dangerous as they want.
Apparently, they now want to invade our Nation’s Capitol, Washington, D.C., over July 4th. I guess they want to see fireworks comin’ from the muzzle of a gun.
Sure, I say let’s send a few thousand people, includin’ young ‘uns, into the center of government, all with loaded guns. What could possibly go wrong with that plan?
Now, I am not a hippie freak who wants to do away with everone’s guns — me ‘n’ Nell own one, although we can’t tell you if it works because it went through the flood of ’04 and now it sits in the umbrella stand to discourage potential evil-doers. Since we ain’t had none of those since ’04, we ain’t shot the gun.
Anyway, these pro-gun folks are thinkin’ they’re sending a SUBTLE message to government by bringin’ 10,000 armed folks into Washington, which don’t issue any permits for this kind a thing.
If that’s subtle, I would surely hate to see a direct warnin’.
What the hell’s got into people lately? Do they really think their gun, no matter how big and powerful, is any match for a government tank? Or a rocket, or a bomb, or a entire military?
Apparently, according to some new poll, nearly three in ten Americans believes we’ll have to have an armed rebellion to overthrow the government in the next few years.
A rebellion over what? You got your vote, although they’d like to take that away from women, poor folks, old folks and people of color.
This is what they wrote on Facebook: “We will march with rifles loaded & slung across our backs to put the government on notice that we will not be intimidated & cower in submission to tyranny. This will be a non-violent event, unless the government chooses to make it violent.”
You know what they’re mad about? Stupid angry white men aren’t the only ones with power anymore. At least that’s what Mother Cray said while Nell and me was cleanin’ up the dishes last night.
She might be right. These fools don’t even realize that if the feds was comin’ for our guns, they’d be gone already.
