After months (years, really) of listening to every hyperbolic conservative conspiracy theory imaginable, Obama has finally single-handedly outlawed the private ownership of any and all firearms by law-abiding private citizens. Of course that statement is not true, but people will attempt to sell Obama's actions that way (as somehow being the first step in the supposedly inevitable process of disarming all Americans, thereby leaving them helpless in the face of Obama's alleged 'tyranny'). After all these months (like I said, years) of listening to all this rhetoric about Obama being a Marxist, blah, blah, blah, who's out to destroy America, AND capitalism, AND the US Constitution, blah, blah, blah, now conservatives finally have the rallying cry of the fear of disarmament to bind them together. What's next, then? Revolution? Frankly, when the rhetoric is already at a fever pitch with Representatives like Steve Stockman already amped up like a mouse on meth, it's difficult (but NOT impossible) to see how it can't get worse. The question is whether or not people will understand that this is all meant to be rhetorical flourish as opposed to a genuine (and literal) call to arms. So, what's next? An insurgency ala Red Dawn? And if attacks against our gov't (otherwise known as terrorism, by the way) begin partly as a result of all this rhetoric, will conservatives in positions of responsibility both in and out of gov't do the responsible thing and try to diffuse the fuse that they help to light? Or will they disavow any responsibility? Or duty?
