Blue Texan has the story.

Did you see anything on this guy during your evening TV news? Me neither. But the newsies did do yet another piece of breathless bigoted bullshit on a rec center some Muslim guy wants to build in New York City.

    And my city just voted to overturn the ban on concealed weapons at an upcoming festival. The gun nuts showed up at the City Commission meeting, packing heat, and the commission caved. It wasn’t about armed intimidation, oh no, it was about the gun nuts’ rights.

    Would I be risking my life to exercise my First Amendment rights by wearing a t-shirt to the festival that’s printed with: “Any guy who has to carry a gun everywhere must have a really small penis”?

    Paradoxically, I’m not as worried about “armed intimidation” as I would have been this time last year.

    For the unhappy reason that the manifest incompetence and treachery towards their own base of Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress has handed the Republican Party its best opportunity for an electoral slate-wiping since 1994.

    If they can overturn the Democratic majorities in Congress and neuter the Presidency, they don’t need the risky resort to armed insurgency.

    Of course, if that happens, this country’s slide towards governmental as well as fiscal collapse will continue with only a brief hiccup.

    And then, I’m afraid, a concealed carry permit will no longer be just something insecure white folks use as a security blanket. It’ll become a practical necessity in some places, where rule of law breaks down to the point where street gangs trump governments.

    *sigh*

    Well, at least I know the drill.

    Spent 10 years learning, when I lived in a significantly more dangerous place than where I do now. I was hoping I could just forget about it, and let that skill decay to zero while pursuing skills better suited to civilization. But it looks like “civilization” isn’t where we’re headed anymore.
