It's long, but worth the read:

<snip>A Handy Guide For Liberals Who Are Suddenly Interested In Gun Ownership
November 14, 2016 correia45 59
That title isn’t joking. This post is aimed at my liberal readers. I’m a libertarian leaning Republican and gun expert, who thinks you are wrong about a lot of stuff, but I’m not writing this to gloat about your loss. For the record, I disliked all the presidential candidates.



Judging by your social media over the last few days many liberals have been utterly terrified that your government might turn tyrannical or that evil people will now be emboldened to hurt you. I’m going to let you in on a little thing the other half of the country is familiar with to keep those unlikely, yet catastrophic, events from happening.



And that my lefty friends, is 2nd Amendment.
Having just gone through a war against a tyrannical government, the Founders understood that governments can go bad, so they made sure to note our God given right (or we’ll say naturally occurring right, since a bunch of you are atheists) to keep and bear arms in order to defend ourselves. The 2nd Amendment isn’t about hunting or “sporting purposes”, it’s about having weapons that you can fight with. As an added bonus, being able to protect yourself from a tyrannical government means that you’re a lot better equipped to deal with any common criminal who decides to hurt you.
Before I get into the details about how to enjoy your newly discovered 2nd Amendment rights, let me just say that I get you’re sad, angry, bitter, and fearful. But just like my people over the last few elections, you’ll get over it. The really hyperbolic freak outs about Literally Hitler make you sound just like the Alex Jones crowd worried that Obama was going to herd Christians into FEMA camps last time. So take a deep breath and relax. Your friends and neighbors are the same as they were last week. The vast majority weren’t voting because racism, they voted against the status quo and a really unlikable Democrat. And no, they aren’t going to round you up into cattle cars.



But in the off chance they do, let’s get you prepared</snip>

Lots of information to convey. I liked it. :bigsmile:

Wouldn't it be nice if the big media explaind things like this ? -

Many of you have been sharing every second hand account, rumor, and urban legend about some random doofus in Somnambulant, Wisconsin or Bumfight, Louisiana, shouting an ethnic slur or spray painting a swastika on a wall. Newsflash, in a country with a third of a billion people, some percentage of them are going to be assholes. I hate to break it to you, but the assholes were there before, and they will be there forever. Just right now the news has a self-serving incentive to report about these assholes in particular.

But Correia! You’re not a marginalized Mexican transsexual Muslim! What do you know!?

I know that anybody can be “marginalized” if they walk into the wrong neighborhood. Violence can happen to any of us, and it does, all the time. Whether your odds of being a victim are good or bad, it still sucks when you draw the short straw and somebody tries to hurt you. Whoever you are, you are correct to be concerned for your safety. Anybody can be attacked, and everybody should be prepared to deal with it.

I was expecting more of a pamphlet than a novella.

The cliff notes version of things is a large reason why we find our nation in the shape it is in. Not all knowledge comes in handy soundbites and flashy pamphlets.

"See, traditionally Democrats don’t like the 2nd Amendment and historically have done everything in their power to screw with it. "

Failed right there.

Yep, ignores plenty of recent Republican gun control efforts - from Reagan (both as President and as Governor of CA) to Nixon to George HW Bush. Not to mention local Republicans who pushed gun control to oppress Black folks.

This article is a great idea but shit execution.

I don't disagree, but if I'm trying to look through the lens of someone on the left, I'm going to stop after just a few paragraphs. The article doesn't seem to "grab" them long enough to take a few moments from the Facebook rants they probably have going on the other browser windows.

Any journalist is responsible to "hook" his/her reader to finish the article. From my perspective, the author failed.

Fair enough. I dont think know that not all liberals are as you describe above. I would hope that one who is actually interested in exploring the idea of gun ownership would not limit their research to the echo chamber of bookface or twatter or other sources of such brevity and dubious credibility.
