Edited from earlier version.
The Left has a formula for it's total takeover of American politics, and it's not a very good formula, because it depends on the Left's use of the "smoke and mirrors" game to achieve victory. Smoke and Mirrors, of course, can always be defeated by not letting the Left move the mirror, and by letting the wind blow the smoke away.
Smoke and Mirrors can win for the left, though. All that has to happen for that to become reality is for us to relax.
I sense that those who would defend the 2A are relaxing about now. We told ourselves that the Feds would never take away our precious AR-15s, and it is turning out correct. The Feinstein Bill is going nowhere fast at this point, primarily because it's single-purpose: stop militia-capable weapons. It's not the only point of anti-2A attack, though. They're going after Concealed Weapons License reciprocity, they're going after ammo supply, and they're trying to get National Registration.
Let's stick to the Militia aspect though, because all the other fights are the "give ground" type of fight, prolong the inevitable, etc. We'll leave that kind of fighting to the NRA, they're good at giving ground gradually.
Yes, here's that NASTY word you don't want to hear, Elmer, "Militia". Well, all you Tactical Tommies and all you Elmer Fudds, here's a flash: Discussion of the main aspect of the 2A, Militia, is the only thing that will save your AR-15s AND your hunting rifles. We must have re-inforcement, in the American mind (what's left of it), that the 2A is ALL about the right to be able to form Militias, armed with appropriate Militia weaponry (ARs, AKs, FALs, etc and pistols with full-size magazine capacity. Other things are secondary, the 2A is about Militia.
Without the Militia aspect of the 2A, what are we down to? We're down to the Personal Defense aspect, and it's a weak argument to defend the 2A on, because it immediately presents questions of police handling that task, of limited necessity for long-range weapons because self-defense encounters are measured in a few feet, not a few hundred meters/yards, of little requirement for more than 5 or 6 shots, etc, ad nauseam. Statistically, the Government could permit us to have a 2-shot .38 Derringer, and they'd have covered the vast majority of self-defense cases.
Yes, each one of those pettifogging arguments can be denied and defeated in detail, but when you offer those denials, when you lay out your defensive argument, the Left sticks it's fingers in it's ears and hollers "Can't hear you. Can't Hear you. Can't hear you".
Yes, the quality and temperament of our Lefty legislators is that low, about on a par with the Third Grade level of maturity.
How do you defeat this? Reasoned 'suasion doesn't work, can't work, in this Short Attention Span Theater, so you have to use a blunt-force weapon, applied between the eyes.
You simply say,
"Hear THIS. The 2A says I may be armed for Militia service, and I say Militias can have (insert your weapon of choice here). End of Story, buddy. No, that's REALLY the End of Story. It ends there. Should you attempt to disarm my potential Militia, I will call it up and let you SEE it. The 2A allows THAT, also. You do NOT want me to take the FINAL step that the 2A envisions."
This is what we have to do with these morons. It is the only thing that is going to save the 2A, letting them SEE some Militia. The Left is in full campaign mode now, campaigning to kill off the 2A while they have the "momentum" to do it. The Left is holding it's breath right now, hoping that a different crisis doesn't eclipse their voters' vision of the current Brass Ring, killing off the 2A. All my and your arguments about "what Civil Right do you want to give up next?" and all that have been wasted, because these Obama voters really ARE that dumb and incapable of seeing either nuance or the world beyond the ends of their noses. They also can't READ their own Constitutions, as evidenced by the fact that they let their Glorious Leader get away with not reading it so many times.
Nope. We have to man up, call up a militia or two hundred, do it right (it's not a beer party), show the Left what our numbers are, then quietly go home and put the videos of that militia muster all over the Internet. We have to drag our Lefty friends and relatives to the seat in front of the computer screen and see that they watch those videos.
How DO we call up Militia?
Stay tuned, watch this blog. I'm going to teach you how to do it. You are not going to learn infantry tactics here, you won't become a better rifleman, but when I'm through, you WILL know how to put together a Militia of your neighbors, and you WILL know how to link up with other such Militias, all as the Founders envisioned and the Second Amendment allows and advises.
