Comment from open letter.
Going to make some folks very uncomfortable.
while he makes some good points, IMHO he sounds like a crackpot and is opening himself up to further scrutiny and targeting. even mentioning the Oklahoma City bombing under the context of "that isn't us" does little except show him in a similar light
his written tactics (calling people 'blithering idiots' for example) seems unprofessional and makes him look like potential trouble, and an anarchist. I would have nothing to do with his group personally. if they ever DO come for our firearms, he will undoubtedly be among the first casualties!
I respectfully disagree.
his eloquent and despite the subject even a bit humorous style is perfect.
yes but he is not writing an op ed to the paper, this is a letter directed at law enforcement. humor and satire are not the way you want to go if you wish to be taken seriously. and like I said, he sounds like potential trouble and I believe the letter is a bit provocative to boot. trust me this will not accomplish what he wishes to accomplish
There is no reason to cower in front of gov't like a serf.
His attitude is perfect and he describes the forces at work with a lot of eloquence.
We need more men like him.
well I am sure other folks might like to weigh in, and don't need to get in a debate with you over this, we obviously disagree. but if you want to persuade somebody of something, you need not 'cower' as you say....most people can make their points without name-calling, commenting on testicle size etc....in other words, act grown-up and professional vs. provocative.
it was not him who commented on testicle size but those who applauded him in the comments section.
Speaking truth to power is the kind of activism we need.
That was my bad, but I do concur.
He is equally bold as the socialists are about stripping us of our "Freedom" with their language and actions on the public airwaves and in the "Peoples Houses", not on some obscure blog.
When do we decide it is time to come out of the shadows?
All the while crime rates are down, murder rates are down and the militarization of the police is in hyper drive along with clamor to end the 2A, are these hand in hand maneuvers?
As already pointed out, that was NOT the author of the letter that made those comments.
yeah I saw that....and yet you pointed it out again lol
Wasn't sure you got the message as you did not comment.
He is clearly seeking a confrontation with his state government. I expect it will be forth coming.
I agree 100%. If firearms are ever confiscated in the US everyone knows there is a possibility of violence. No one has to say a word about violence or any organization, if it even exists. All such a letter does is brand one as a crackpot.
In 1934 all machine guns, sawed off shotguns and rifles were confiscated or turned in. This was accomplished through the threat of punitive taxes. The government of course out lived the gun owners. We have "Blue" states that are currently restricting the sales of specific weapons. The next step is to register and tax existing firearms that do not meet this criteria. Gun Control that works is always incremental. It follows the old axiom of how do you boil a frog? Very slowly of course.
It ain't Vanderboegh's state government. He lives in Alabama.
Yep, Mike Vanderboegh would love to see cops killed in CT while he sits on his butt, safe in his native Alabama. i'm saddened when people threaten to kill cops because they dare enforce laws passed by duly elected politicians. Very few people on this board live in CT.
Like it or not, the duly elected legislature and duly elected governor of CT passed some anti-gun laws. However, the majority of CT voters supported the passage of those laws and still support those laws today.
Yep, i think those anti-gun laws in CT are very unreasonable. But i have no skin in the fight except to wish pro-gunners in CT well. Folks would do well to remember the obsession with the "Obama is going to take your guns now" thing. Several states passed serious gun control while pro-gunners and gun rights organizations were distractedby misinformation, lies and BS.
How strange the passage of stringent gun control laws in CO and NY do not draw the same kind of reaction from Vanderboegh and his lackeys.
Veiled threats to kill cops is a total turn-off to most folks, including this one.
Very interesting post. He is against Established Political Party affiliations in America. He is professing armed revolt to reestablish what he sees as Constitutional Rights. What next start executing voters who created this system? It seems I have read this theory just recently.
Nowhere in his letter did he advocate or wish for any such thing!
If you are going to comment on him and his letter, stick to the facts and leave the lies and false accusation to the Main Stream Media, the Hollywood Left and the Democrats.
Maybe you can explain what he was saying? It did sound like a threat warning the police of an Armageddon if they tried to enforce laws regarding firearms.
Yep, guys like yourself get all your information from "patriots" like Mike Vanderboegh and Alex Jones.
Yep, Vanderboegh whines and urinates about the US government while getting a disability check from the taxpayer's every month. What a hypocritical fruitcake.
