Hey Maura, this is another reason why you can stick your AR15 made up edict where the sun doesn't shine.

CUCUTA, Venezuela/Colombia border – As Venezuela continues to crumble under the socialist dictatorship of President Nicolas Maduro, some are expressing words of warning – and resentment – against a six-year-old gun control bill that stripped citizens of their weapons.

“Guns would have served as a vital pillar to remaining a free people, or at least able to put up a fight,” Javier Vanegas, 28, a Venezuelan teacher of English now exiled in Ecuador, told Fox News. “The government security forces, at the beginning of this debacle, knew they had no real opposition to their force. Once things were this bad, it was a clear declaration of war against an unarmed population.”

Venezuelans regret gun ban, 'a declaration of war against an unarmed population'

Gone to Carolina in my mind...
You mean an armed population has a chance to keep a potentially oppressive government in line?

[hmmm] my shocked face.

One person can't do it alone. It takes more than one person to decide it's "Go Time" at the same time. THEN it's Go Time.

Someone remind me who on NES holds the Go Time clock?

Some quotes from the article:

“Guns would have served as a vital pillar to remaining a free people, or at least able to put up a fight,” Javier Vanegas, 28, a Venezuelan teacher of English now exiled in Ecuador, told Fox News. “The government security forces, at the beginning of this debacle, knew they had no real opposition to their force. Once things were this bad, it was a clear declaration of war against an unarmed population.”

"Eduardo Espinel, 35, who serves as a representative for the rapidly growing Venezuelan population in the Colombian border town of Cucuta, said a gun bam [sic] law had actually proliferated the violence in Venezuela. (Fox News/Hollie McKay)"

“Venezuelans didn’t care enough about it. The idea of having the means to protect your home was seen as only needed out in the fields. People never would have believed they needed to defend themselves against the government,” Vanegas explained. “Venezuelans evolved to always hope that our government would be non-tyrannical, non-violator of human rights, and would always have a good enough control of criminality.”
He said it didn’t take long for such a wide-eyed public perception to fall apart. “If guns had been a stronger part of our culture, if there had been a sense of duty for one to protect their individual rights, and as a show of force against a government power – and had legal carry been a common thing – it would have made a huge difference,” he lamented."

“Without a doubt, if there had been a balance of armed defense we could have stood up and stopped the oppression at the beginning,” he contended. “But there is too much anarchy on the streets now. Making guns easier for anybody to buy now would start a civil war.”

No clock, clocks can be compromised. When you think it might be go time grab your gun and run outside, if no one else is outside with their guns doing the same go back inside and wait to try again.

If it saves even one life, everyone should be made defenseless.

You may not agree with that, but that just means you aren't a Democrat in MA.

This is exactly how it works. ^

I got that label years ago. A quote from my neighbor
"Only a crazy gun owner flies 2 American Flags"
As if she was revealing some deep secret.

Would she feel better if it was one American flag, and one Gadsden flag? That's what I used to do before my flag pole snapped and fell over.

I honestly don't give a shit what happens to social communists who voted in the government that disarmed them and is now starving them. They got what they wanted.

Make better decisions next time......if there is one.

There is no go time. Government has perfected the art of keeping the heat just below boil for long periods of time.
Go Time™ for you will be business as usual for your grand kids.
