Excellent advice

Buy a gun.

Things are starting to look like they’re going to get dire, and you should probably get a firearm for self-defense.

The reason you should get one probably isn’t going to surprise a lot of my readers. In fact, this isn’t necessarily directed at you scrolling through this article (unless you don’t own a firearm, in which case, sell your cloak and buy one) but the people you might know who are either on the fence or don’t think something nasty isn’t coming their way.

Something is coming this country’s way, and if our recent history has taught us anything, it’s going to get bloody in the streets.

The thing coming is the 2024 election. While all elections have a “this is the most important election in our lifetime” feel hanging over it, this election is particularly tense. That tension is only going to grow from here, and you’re going to see it get worse by leaps and bounds after the Republicans nominate their candidate to run against President Joe Biden.

No matter who gets the nomination, you’re going to see the left flip out and begin ramping up riots, protests, and violence, likely because the media will stir the fears and anxieties of those who still believe them. If the pattern holds, then the media will focus on a cause of some sort that will foment hatred and division that puts Republicans at the center of the blame.

It’s not conservatives the nation needs to worry about getting violent. The violence will come from the left as sure as day turns to night, and you need to be ready when it does, especially if Trump gets close to or obtains the office of the Presidency. Should that happen, the reaction from the left will be fiery both figuratively and very literally.

Violence will be cheered on by Democrat politicians, a fearmongering media, and leftist advocacy organizations of every variety. In their self-induced fear and panic, they will begin destroying and assaulting, attempting takeovers of city blocks, and punishing anyone they believe to be guilty of paving the way for Trump’s return.

You need to be able to defend yourself if you happen to find yourself in an area where the backlash happens.

Forewarned is forearmed; an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure; better to have and not need than to need and not have, all that jazz. I omitted several paragraphs of speculation on Trump’s chances in next fall’s “election” entertainment production, and what might transpire should he win—win again, that is, since he already did so in 2020, then was removed from office via the J6 coup d’état so as to allow the Shadow State to install its choice of marionette, allowing the (shit)show to go on.

My opinion on Trump’s Quixotic quest for the presidency remains unchanged—which, rather than prattle on at length yet again about it, can be sententiously summed up with a reworking of Gen William R Sherman’s famous riposte: If nominated, he will not be allowed to run; if elected, he will not be allowed to govern. In any event, getting another gun is never a bad thing. It’s an easy-peasy, no-brainer move no 2A person is likely to regret making, each and every time.

  1. If you don’t own a firearm, you’re in trouble f things break badly. If your fearful of the process, no need to be. Find a local gun range and for just a few $$$ they will help you try out a few pistols, guide you in their use, and provide some training skills. It’s not difficult, you just have to get started.

    1. Pistols are good only for close-range combat under stress. Ideally, you shouldn’t let your opponent get that close. In a knife attack, for example, an attacker can close 20 feet in a second, and most are so pumped up with adrenaline that only if you hit them in an area which incapacitates them immediately – heart or head – will you be able to stop the threat. Even if you have a lot of training in firing under stress, this is difficult. A better weapon would be a 12-gauge pump shotgun loaded with 00 buckshot for close range, and a .30 calibre rifle – bolt action should be fine – for opponents farther away – and the farther away you can keep (and stop) your opponent, the better, because it buys you time, and time is precious.

      1. Agree, but shooting a shotgun at the local range is mostly impossible. I have two shotguns ready, but I keep the pistol handy.
        If you have nothing, it’s my advice to start with a pistol because it’s the easiest to get trained on. Otherwise I suggest a shotgun, semi auto not pump, and extended magazine for multiple rounds. My main 12g is a semi auto and holds 9 in the mag plus 1, and is 22″ length. It is truly like your own personal hand held cannon. The problem is none of the ranges around here allow shotguns unless you are a member*, and even then the ammo is restricted to slugs. It’s better to get a pistol with training than a shotgun without and no place to practice.

        *which is rather expensive unless you shoot weekly.

          1. The closest public skeet shooting is about 40 minutes away, but I have no problem. 20 minutes from me is my sons place of 50 acres and a nice shooting area. I have no issue shooting the shotgun at close defensive range or out to 100 yards for deer.

            It’s the new person that I’m thinking of. Many of the current non owners of a firearm are somewhat intimidated by them. Shooting skeet would be fine to learn the art of handling the shotty, loading, reloading, saftey, etc. But my personal opinion is that is not adequate for self defense purposes in the home. For that you need a range with targets in the 5-25 yard range, and an instructor to help you get started.
            If you start with a pistol it’s easy, a range is probably nearby with qualified instructors that are reasonable price wise. You can try out multiple pistols and then choose to purchase one that fits you well. Most people without a weapon are in the dark and need a bit of guidance.

            Last, it’s easy to go shoot at the local range and get in some practice, something sorely needed by any new person, and even for veteran shooters.

FREEDOM!!!

"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

“When I was young I was depressed all the time. But suicide no longer seemed a possibility in my life. At my age there was very little left to kill.”
Charles Bukowski

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.”
John Adams

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved."
Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid."
Dwight D. Eisenhower

"To put it simply, the Left is the stupid and the insane, led by the evil. You can’t persuade the stupid or the insane and you had damn well better fight the evil."
Skeptic

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork."
David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."
Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
NC Reed, from Parno's Peril

"I just want a government that fits in the box it originally came in."
Bill Whittle
