The paradox of being "A law abiding gun owner"

par·a·dox
/ˈperəˌdäks/Submit
noun
a seemingly absurd or self-contradictory statement or proposition that when investigated or explained may prove to be well founded or true.
"in a paradox, he has discovered that stepping back from his job has increased the rewards he gleans from it"

As law abiding gun owners who are seeing our right to bear arms stolen from us it brings up the "paradox" of trying to remain law abiding, while at the same time standing up for your rights in a meaningful way with a positive outcome. Unfortunately there really is no way to paint ourselves as "law abiding" in the eyes of gun grabbers who already believe that all gun owners are potential crazies who could start shooting people at any time. We aren't going to change their minds..they are hell bent on violating our rights to further their own agenda. So how do we defend our rights without looking like "the next mass shooter?" If we point to the 2nd amendment and proclaim the reason for it was to defend freedom from a tyrannical government, the left uses that against us by calling us radical and dangerous. They lie about everything from the so called "gun show loop hole" to how our firearms function. Even calling our black rifles "assault weapons " to stir the emotions of those who are ignorant of the facts.

So, how do we not only defend ourselves from the verbal, and sometimes physical attacks? In my opinion we ignore them..that's right..we continue to voice the truth, point out every incidents where firearms save lives and refuse to comply with illegal infringement. Let them pass all the laws they wish..dare them to enforce them . Be upfront with law enforcement. We have no desire to go to war with the government and certainly do not want bloodshed...that said, they must be warned with peace and love that if it comes down to no knock raids in the middle of the night, we will not hesitate to defend our rights, and we will take the fight to those who have the desire to strip us of our rights for their own nefarious agenda. We have been the victims of these attacks for decades, rarely if ever lifting a finger against those that want to take away our 2A rights. They need to be warned that if thier attacks continue, we will have no choice but to engage them in the manner that the 2nd amendment was written for.

Spoken like someone who has their head buried in the dirt hoping the gun grabbers will leave him alone and when they don't you will hand over your rights without a fight. The last person we need..go ahead and save yourself the trouble and turn them in now. The fight is coming whether you want it or not..at least we now know where you stand.

I'm confused too. Do I ignore everyone or wage insurrection?

Great post Muleskinner. I appreciate someone who isn’t afraid to speak their mind. We have quite a few on here who are Sunshine Patriots and those who want to make jokes while they live their lives in their personal little bubble. The funny thing is the joke will be on them when the bubble is finally burst and SHF.

The answer is to stop being afraid to speak out..stop letting the fear of being caled a "terrorist, a gun nut or a potential threat" keep you from being outspoken..up to and including telling the left wing asshats that they are risking civil war if they continue to infringe on our rights..they have a large portion of the 2A community shaking in their boots and they know it. It's time to start playing offense..they need to know in no uncertain terms what will happen if they continue. .

Nah, I certainly didn’t take it that way.
