I just saw this on philly.com (a website that provides Philadelphia and the surrounding area with "news").

The Bushmaster .233, the weapon used to gun down school children in Newtown. Conn. It's currently legal.


Here's his twitter account too. .....nothing too surprising.

We are not going to be able to counter all this dialog. I'm falling down the rabbit hole here.

How do we reset this insanity?
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

Actually, a 1776 musket rifle WAS the high-end, military-grade weapon of the day.

So, yeah....

In 1776 there were private citizens who also owned their own private cannons (way more damage--can destroy buildings).

Small bit of Texas history (required course in public schools down there):

In the Texas Archive War, then president Sam Houston wanted to relocate the archives of the capitol from Austin (then the capital of the Texas Republic) over to Houston, his town. They selected the Land Office records because this contained all the property deeds to all citizens of the Republic, the only legal documents that were valid that defined who owned what property in the entire country. The protestors in Austin were called 'seditious'.

A woman by the name of Angelina Eberly who owned a boarding house next door to the archives discovered what was going on and commandeered a Howitzer gun and pointed it at the men and wagons who were trying to steal the documents from the building, then she turned the gun to point to the Land Office building and fired, damaging the building.

The kerfuffle gave enough time to alert cavalry to the theft, and the men who had carted off the archives were stopped and apprehended, ending the conflict.

At the time, stealing the government records and relocating them effectively was the same as moving the capital or the county seat. Numerous Texas counties had switched their county seats through archive theft. The county I spent most of my time growing up in had its capital relocated several times. The original town that had the county seat is now a ghost town--only fragments of some building foundations from the 1830s can be found but most of the rest is gone and has been swallowed up by brush when the town I grew up in took hold of the records. My hometown has a railroad and was more prosperous than another neighboring town (where the county seat is now located today). The instant the railroad was constructed it created controversy because the writing was on the wall: all the commerce in the county plus all of the wealth will relocate to be as close to the railroad station as possible. And that's true today in Texas--almost all county seats are located close to railroad points. The counties which have railroads but the county seat doesn't lie next to the railroad is usually because the county seat was "stolen" and relocated.

The only reason why the neighboring town from where I grew up got the county seat was because the archives were stolen and moved there, forcing everyone who had official business to commute by horse to where the records were.

If a certain lady did not have access to a fairly powerful weapon---the capital of Texas right now would be Houston. Not Austin.

How do you eat a whale? One bite at a time.

And please remember, and utilize, the 5 boxes.

"There are five boxes to use in the defense of Liberty:

The Soap Box,
the Mail Box,
the Ballot Box,
the Jury Box,
and the Ammunition Box.

Please use them in that order."


I fear too many people are ignoring the first 2.

Actually the Kentucky Long Rifle, not an official military weapon, was the peak of small arms tech at the time. The British were armed with smoothbore muskets. The American sharpshooters were armed with more accurate rifles.

First it's semi auto long rifles that look too much like it would be in Terminator II.

Then it's semi auto long rifles of any kind, including semi ranch rifles. Going wood buttstock on a mini-14 won't be enough to confuse the idiots.

Then it's pump-action shotguns with pistol grips, then it's any pump action shotgun.

Then it's bolt action shotguns.

Next, it's double barrel shotguns.

Then it's all shotguns.

Then it's pistol magazines that hold more than 8 rounds. Then 6. Then 5.

Then it's semi-auto pistols completely.

Then it's double action revolvers.

Then it's all the guns.

When you use the Soap box people accuse you of being paranoid and wearing tinfoil hats.

When you use the Mailbox your letter is most probably read by a staffer then you receive a form letter, effectively being ignored.

The ballot box is at best widely ignored or abused, at worst corrupted by one side or the other.

I am not 100% confident in the jury box either.

Use the ammo box and you effectively open Pandora's Box. The repercussions are literally impossible to predict. Sometimes though it is the best choice.

Right now though I think the best bet is to stick to the first four and hope that we can reclaim them through persistence.
