Dear Lefties: If You Don’t ‘Feel Safe,’ You Can Always Buy Some Guns
Self-defense is a human right, even for humans who are dumb enough to think Trump is Hitler. (Although one may be inclined to wonder why big-government supporters who engage in street violence when their preferred candidate loses an election object to Hitler. I mean, really, you guys seem kind of like his type).
Part of me worries a little bit–I think the fantasies of people shooting each other over parking spaces that are always trotted out (but never happen) are a matter of projection. Just like the predictions of riots if Trump lost turned out to be projection. Anti-gunners think “I’d probably shoot someone over a parking space, so probably other people would, too.” But I have long believed that the best way to encourage responsible behavior is to give people responsibility.
And, just generally, if Trump <i>does</i> turn out to be Hitler, I’d rather the hipsters and lefties were with me at the barricades rather than expecting me to save their sorry asses.
So buy guns, people!
