During this Christmas season it is customary, as always, for adults to shower their young with toys and other goodies associated with the tradition of St. Nicholas. The joy of watching the reaction of children to these gifts is one of the highlights of the year.
In keeping with that tradition, gun rights activists initiated a program of goodwill aimed at politicians and other public figures called "Toys for Totalitarians."
Given that these particular politicians and public figures have apparently entered into second childhood as evidenced by their numerous displays of tantrums, threatening verbiage, promises to restrict the rights of fellow citizens simply because they, the totalitarians, consider themselves the center of the universe, it is only fitting that they be treated like two year olds.
These haughty, arrogant, infantile, and self-centered autocrats have pitched one too many hissy fits over the right of citizens to exercise self-defense with firearms that the only toy suitable enough for them is the very thing they would deprive the citizens from having.
Citizen journalist and gun rights activist Mike Vanderboegh thus conceived the concept of sending to the infantile tin pot despots standard capacity gun magazines that will hold more rounds of ammunition than the arrogant ones will allow in places such as Connecticut, New York, California, and Colorado.
Vanderboegh kicked his campaign into high gear today in order to insure that the recipients receive their magazines before the end of the year.
Today, Vanderboegh sent the toys to Connecticut RINO John McKinney, NBC News reporter David Gregory, and Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy. Previous recipients were Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, and Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley.
Patriots from around the country have stated repeatedly for at least a year that if certain anti-gun states succeed in passing laws that infringe on the Constitutional right to keep and bear arms, a systematic program of smuggling would ensue as an act of disobedience and defiance. Citizens will see to it that fellow citizens who live in the oppressive states will continue to have access to "forbidden" guns and magazines.
True to their word, this is precisely what Vanderboegh has done in launching his Toys for Totalitarians program. In many ways this initiative is but a symbolic gesture indicating what thousands if not millions of freedom-loving citizens will do in the event of more restrictive gun laws.
Remember that more alcohol flowed during Prohibition than when it was legal, eventually forcing the progressives in government to back off and repeal the oppressive law.
If the country continues down its present path, there is no doubt whatsoever that citizens will insure that even more guns, ammunition, and magazines will be flowing into the hands of Americans who want them.
Let this be a word to the wise, to those who are still rational adults in spite of the fact that many of their elected leaders have reverted back into childhood and live in a fantasy world. Most Americans still don't want government telling them what to do. Cross the line they have drawn in the sand, and you will discover how serious they are about that basic premise.
