Congressmen’s advice to women: “Don’t resist, just take it.”

Posted by Troy on 26th March 2018 in Current Events, Political

A congressman recently stated that the Second Amendment was outdated because small arms could not compete with jets and bombs.   So, I guess his advice to girls would be, “Look… he’s bigger and stronger than you.  Fighting will only make it worse.  Just lay back and take it…”

Now I will tear his argument apart:

1 – Congressmen that scoff at small arms in the hands of individual combatants should do the duties of our service members.  After all, Congressmen ask service members to sweep streets in Iraq/etc with small arms fire coming randomly out of windows, etc.  I am sure that, since small arm fire is no big deal, they would gladly switch places with our service members.

2 – It is asinine to think that a tyrannical government would bomb their populace.  The reason is that a tyrannical government views their populace, buildings, factories, etc as resources to be managed.  They have no problem with killing people (who would be considered more like cattle than individual human beings), but factories and buildings (etc) are expensive and have to be replaced and cut into their pockets.  How many tyrannical governments are there?  How often do you hear about them dropping bombs, wholesale, on an entire city?  Granted, there are times when a regime is in danger of dying (like in Syria), but by and large, this does not happen.  Granted, maybe this is because most populations are unarmed, so sending death squads into a city accomplishes the goal without having to destroy valuable real estate.

3 – The descent into tyranny does not go: “Okay we are now tyrannical… bomb the F_______ out of that city!”  If it did, I would hope that there would be a revolt in the ranks of the military and the military would depose the government.  A military coup is a bad thought, but I would like to think that an early attempt to move straight into bombing would be prevented by the military itself refusing to comply with the order.

4 – So you may ask: well, if you assume that the military wouldn’t bomb you, why do you think they would shoot you?  Dunno.  Ask blacks in Chicago about that.  Ask Native Americans about that.  Look, the military is made up of Americans.  If they were given an order to put down a insurrection, they would follow the order.  If the people are armed with rocks and the occasional illicit firearm, they would still do so.  Any deaths would be regrettable, but they would think that the random armed resister brought it on themselves.  There is a huge difference between this scenario and having to march through Atlanta where every single window becomes a potential sniper’s roost.  Where every corner and alleyway becomes a chance for ambushes or guerrilla warfare.  It would not take long under those circumstances for the military to turn against the oppressive government.

The Second Amendment is not outdated.

Long Live the Constitution!
