Quote of the day (it’s my blog and I can have two if I want)

Why do you need an AR-15?

I don’t “need” my AR any more than Rosa Parks “needed” to sit in the front of that bus

    You mean like the “Well-Regulated Militias” of Lexington and Concord didn’t “Need” their Firearms?

  2. Kristophr Says:

    I need an AR-15 because of Fuck You, hippie.

    Who needs a convertible or a Prius, or organic veggies, or an iPhone or horse or a latte, or well anything where there is a functional alternative of adequate but lesser capability.

    Of course, an AR-15 is much more arguable from the apocalypse standpoint, in that when the zombie’s come, the military has large stores of ammunition useable in the weapon so forming up militias under military orders would be simplified. Sure, we live in a world where we don’t have to consider citizens don’t have to worry about using private weapons in support of military operations but if history is a guide, if the regular forces get knocked on their heels, private arms will be critical to preserving the Constitution.

    BTW, Daniel Foster over at NRO has a good article on the topic. Very, calm and informative.

    The schoolyard bully always wants to know why you “need” your lunch money. Problem is, he’s now a Democratic Party legislator, and he wants to know why you “need” your AR-15. He really never cared why you needed your lunch money or your AR, he has just only ever wanted to bully you out of them. A swift kick in the balls was proper response on the schoolyard, but what to do aout him now?

    Answer: It’s a bill of rights not a bill of shit obama thinks I need.

    I don’t need an AR-15, since I’ve chosen an AK-47 instead. It would be needed should I need to either persuade or neutralize a group of univited home invaders…a possible,although unlikely event. But, should I need it, I need it now!

    And when you have those who want and are working to deprive you of an AR-15 or other similar weapons, then you do now NEED it because ONLY YOUR ENEMY WANTS YOU DISARMED.

    i would like a tshirt featuring rosa parks with a vietnam-era M16, standing over the smoking ruins of a few buses.

    Nobody needs to be a bed-wetting douchbag either but we sure have plenty of them.

    You should see the looks on their faces when I answer “to shoot people”. Yeah, I mean, target practice and all that, but seriously, why else would I have it? I’d use something else for anything bigger than a yote, hunting-wise; I have it for penetrating kevlar. May I never have to do so. That or “fuck you, that’s why”.

    “i would like a tshirt featuring rosa parks with a vietnam-era M16, standing over the smoking ruins of a few buses.”

    Have some smoking Klan hoods poking out from inside/beneath the buses and I think you have a winner! I’d buy one.

    Love it!

    I would prefer to see this written in the non-passive voice:

    I “need” my AR for the same reason Rosa Parks “needed” to sit in the front of that bus.

    I “need” my AR for the same reason Michael Bloomberg “needs” his security detail.

  13. Dannytheman Says:

    I think this a great public answer.


  14. Sigivald Says:

    Rob: Hell, we already have an equivalent (more or less) in the famous picture of Malcolm X with an M1 carbine…

    “By any means necessary”.

  15. Andrew Says:

    This is excellent. Thanks.

    Why do you need an AK47? Because fuck you.
    Yeah, I thought that was a cool response, even used it a time or two.
    But lately I have been asked that question by very old friends. And I realized that answer hurts our cause. We are in the middle of a war right now. Not a shooting war, but a war of ideas. A meme war, if you will. Its been going on for years, and so far we have been winning, at least the RTKABA part.
    Every time we say ‘fuck you hippie’ we give aid and comfort to the other side, by re-enforcing their misguided ideas. We throw away the chance to make an ally and weaken our opponents.
    Our cause is just, and the ammunition we need to win is out there. The day we lose the war of ideas, the shooting starts. And while we will win that war, it may well be a pyrrhic victory.

    For the same reason the Korean shopkeepers needed theirs in L.A.

  18. Kristophr Says:

    fitz: These people are not possible allies.

    Fuck them, and the horse they rode in on.

    And fuck any supposed friend who wants to make us hide in the closet.

    Stop being nice to bigots.

After several weeks of taking Viagra, I got used to it and took the drug only on the weekends. Noticing the changes, my girlfriend started to ask me why I'm so active on weekends. I had to honestly confess everything. She was not upset but supported me. So thanks to Viagra, I made sure that I'm loved just like the way I am.
