    It is sick for our military to have million dollar bombs and attack drones that don't even risk the pilot's life when it destroys huts on the other side of the planet.

    If progressives would never dare suggest that the Palestinians be disarmed while the Israelis kept all their weapons, or that the Syrian people be disarmed while Assad kept his weapons, why would they want themselves disarmed even while the government itself keeps weapons?

    •  Who's disarmed? There are more guns in the U.S. (4+ / 0-)

      than ever. The NRA has pushed the idea that Obama and/or the Dems "will take your guns away" (an old contractor partner of mine actually believed the shit the NRA was sending him; I tried to talk him out of it; he thought Obama was going to literally take guns out of houses).

      Please let's not peddle that "gun confiscation" meme here. It's pure paranoia. Or do I misunderstand?
