I AM 1776% sure no one is taking my guns shirt. Talking about “nobody wants to take you guns” then going on about how we need to ban “assault weapons” in the next sentence. THOSE ARE MY GUNS. It’s consistently amazing that many liberals simultaneously call the cops and the president racist and authoritarian but then expect the people to surrender their means of defense to those same cops and that same president. Yes, nobody is coming to take my guns but Trump’s government is authoritarian and will do anything to suppress all opposition.

But nobody is coming to take our guns, that’s ludicrous. They just want to ban certain kinds of weapons and legally confiscate them via unfortunate, involuntary compulsion. Remember, it’s not unjust if the majority agrees with it! Funny I AM 1776% sure no one is taking my guns shirt. Laws are words on paper backed up with the threat or application of State violence. Whether it’s gun control or property taxes, people comply because otherwise they will be imprisoned or killed. And the applicators of that force are armed government employees.
Now grant it there’s laws out there we comply with because it’s generally human nature to do so. We don’t murder (usually) because there’s a law against murder, we don’t murder because it’s not really in our nature to kill our fellow man. I’m not arguing for zero laws, I’m just hoping people realize that when they ask for laws, they ask for more reasons for the State to get violent. Funny, I don’t remember the outcry when the President supported bumpstocks ban and other red flag laws but not we see how dangerous they all are.
