I can't respond to that because of the rules here (as you mention), but it's not because I want to engage in name-calling, making threats of violence or death, but rather it's because I don't have a problem with what they (the liberals commenting in the link) are saying, even with them wanting to harm/kill gun owners/conservatives and remove them from the scene entirely. At least THEY get the "problem" and understand the solution to it. Conversely, most conservatives/gun-owners don't have a clue, or are in denial. While conservatives (and we gun-owners/carriers here) play by the rules (and many think they are taking the superior/high ground), the liberals are doing just the opposite, and pulling the rug out from under "the high grounders" as said liberals go on winning the Culture War.
Kind of counter-productive if you ask me -- be "superior" but end up the loser in a street-fight -- but that's how it is...
I DO agree with you that we should "know the enemy" and have been saying so for YEARS now. But that should be a given as it's just good military strategy. Always has been. Even applied to a so-called Culture War (which is cold now, but could become hot later).
So that's about all I can say: Explaining myself further in more detail isn't possible since one can't speak freely not only here on this forum, but on any forum. Due to the "play nice" rule. Okay, play nice and lose, if that's the goal, but it doesn't allow any REAL dialog. Besides, one should not have to tip-toe or convolute wording just to speak truly & plainly in order to avoid getting warned/banned for doing so. And that "creative writing" isn't really successful anyway, is it.
But again, those be the rules so I'll leave it at that.
Still, I repeat: I've no problem at all with liberals making threats of bodily harm or death (as seen in that link where they want to "do unpleasant things" to Mr. Wayne La Pierre -- and to US by logical extension). It doesn't upset or anger me in the least. Nor do I have any issue with liberals actually attempting to DO harm (ACT vs. TALKING) to conservatives and/or gun-owners (except most gun owners are liberals, so they're only hurting each other -- which is FINE with me). At least liberals are being real in seeing violence as a viable (if not the only) solution. After all, "working within the system" up to now isn't getting anything solved for good (for once & for all), and THEY see that, so what's left? So they're only stating how these things ("differences") SHOULD be resolved: One side wins, the other side loses and is gone. No quarter given, no prisoners taken. Otherwise, this "debate" will ALL happen over and over again in the future. IMO, coexisting with liberals is not an option, and it's what has brought this about presently. And America's decline as well.
THEY act, WE react. They are on the Offense -- and often successfully -- while WE are stuck in Defense. Can't win always playing Defense.
We MIGHT have one last chance to get "gun stuff" done in Washington since lots of Republicans have been elected recently (2014 Mid-Term Elections), so possibly we can still "work within the system" to restore gun rights (right-to-carry) to EVERY American citizen -- regardless of what STATE he/she lives in (which is definitely NOT the case presently) -- but that remains to be seen. If the Republicans do NOT get anything done on that, IMO it's pretty much over. I mean if they can't do it when they HAVE the power, then WHEN? [a rhetorical question]
But I digress...
So for my part, as a "serious" conservative, *I* don't want to coexist with liberals, and would like to see THEM all be gone from the American scene. So I get where they're coming from wanting likewise for conservatives. That's how it should be.
If anyone here hasn't already, he/she should choose a side in this so-called Culture War. Stop being a fence-sitter (AKA: Moderate, AKA: Compromiser) -- as being lukewarm "in the middle" on ANYTHING is meaningless, it's merely being a zero/placeholder droid if you will. And there should be NO compromising when it comes to RIGHTS -- in "our" case I mean the 2nd Amendment/RKBA. NONE! Be "passionate" about the issues vs. being a calm, robotic and blasé mealy-mouth Ted Koppel type of talking head (or a silent lurker in the dimly lit background) so you don't offend anyone, or make waves. While you are being sensitive and considerate of "dissenting views" -- even respect them -- they aren't being the same towards you. And they'll win. A fight is a fight, and one wins any way he/she can. There ARE no rules. Just win.
REAL and substantial change isn't brought about by passive fence-sitting Moderates.
It never has been.
