We can destroy anyone in the gun industry who collaborates with the forcible citizen disarmament lobby and their pet government officials. And we must.

Another alternate universe heard from. There are ugly little anonymous trolls that don't live under bridges.
Just received this comment to "Gee, I go away for a little while and all hell breaks loose."
"What happens when the Supreme Court rules and tells you and every citizen that this law is Constitutional. What will you do then Militia man? You know what you'll do? Nothing. Go watch football, drink beer and eat steak. Lazy Americans, you get what you deserve."
Actually, what the Supreme Court says is irrelevant one way or the other. The maintenance of our natural, God-given and inalienable rights doesn't depend upon the Supreme Court, but on ourselves. Thus has it always been for free men and women. My suggestion to the wannabe tyrants of Connecticut to hold the enforcement of their law until the Supremes rule in a couple years was designed to give us more time to get ready and, only incidentally, as a favor to keep them alive. We always retain the the right of self-defense of liberty, property and life. As for the phrase "lazy Americans," it suggests that the poster is some foreign troll, no doubt from some self-emasculated borg-hive like England. In any case, he risks nothing, says nothing and is nothing. In fact, using the illustration of a troll above is probably an insult to honest trolls everywhere. Next I'll be hearing from the Troll Anti-Defamation League of Middle Earth.
Yesterday was quite a wringer. Two doctor's visits and a CT scan later, it has been decided to do a remedial procedure on the stenosis on the 17th. Anyway, between the various stuff going on health-wise, it's tougher to deal with the work. My email inbox is jammed with new correspondents' inquiries so I will try to deal with that later today and hope to finish my Walter Duranty piece on the CT media and another to the governor of CT tentatively titled, "The Tyrant's Conundrum, or, Nullification by Deer Rifle." More later I hope, but for now, I've just got to get some more sleep. Keep me in your prayers.
As contemptible as the people are who push laws restricting who can own a firearm, what kind of firearm it is, where it can be taken, how much ammunition it can hold, etc., those who would ban purely defensive measures like body armor, who would demand that we the people are perforated by every bullet that comes our way, occupy a level of loathsomeness all their own.

"Calls for insurrection and lethal opposition when police come to the door, such as that made by Mike Vanderboegh, are not being acted upon." When have I called for insurrection, asshole? Quote me.
This reminds me of the 90s, when the JBS wet their pants about the rise of the constitutional militia movement.
Voters chose to allow authorities to seize firearms at domestic investigations (Yes: 5,579 / No: 2,066), ban firearms from establishments that serve liquor (Yes: 5,194 / No: 2,517), and require firearms in the home to be locked up (Yes: 4,351 / No: 2,971) in an election that marks the latest battle in a long campaign being waged between “progressive” Burlington Council members working with Gun Sense Vermont, and the Vermont Federation of Sportmen’s Clubs.
Look, for all the "Sandy Hook Conspiracy Theory" excrement clogging up my email inbox and the comments here, I can't get anything done. Enough. Sell it to Alex Jones, he's the disinformation artist. I will not use Sipsey Street to propagate self-discrediting crap when real issues are pressing. All emails regarding the subject, and all comments, have been and will be deleted. You can continue to shriek in all caps and call me names to your heart's content, but you're not hijacking this blog, or my limited time on this rock. Okay? That settles that.
That outburst taken care of, I am going for a couple of doctor visits and a new, state-of-the-art CT scan today. Keep me in your prayers. I'll try to have more later.
On the proper response to Connecticut tyranny going operational. "Put your trust in God, my boys, and keep your powder dry!"
The night is gathering gloomily, the day is closing fast --The tempest flaps his raven wing in loud and angry blast;The thunder clouds are driving athwart the lurid sky --But "put your trust in God, my boys, and keep your powder dry."-- "Oliver's Advice," a poem by William Blacker, 1834.
I was taken to task by several readers for my violation of Godwin's Law in my letter to Darth Vance yesterday. My reply? "You know, if you don't ACT like a Nazi, you won't be mistaken for one." The Connecticut situation, and especially Vance's "un-American" and "I am the master" comments, have raised people's hackles like nothing I've seen in a while. Everyone is trying to figure out how they can help.
I have been overwhelmed by emails offering military help for Connecticut should it come to guns. These emails also ask for any contacts I have in that state so they can coordinate with them ahead of time. Aside from the OPSEC considerations this raises for those Three Percenters behind enemy lines, I am unconvinced that this is the proper course for folks living outside that state.
My thoughts on the subject are contained in the email response below to one such patriot petitioner.
-----Original Message-----From: firstname.lastname@example.orgTo: REDACTEDSent: Wed, Mar 5, 2014 4:31 amSubject: Re: The Connecticut situationJ.,While the dedication is admirable, I disagree with the OPLAN. I will be writing of this later today, but as my friend Bob Wright once told an FBI SAC in Albuquerque NM when he asked Bob if he would take his men out of state to the site of another potential Waco: "Why would I want to do that? There's plenty of you federal sonsabitches around here."It is my belief that once initiated anywhere, including -- especially -- CT, the state trying to disarm its population would find itself in deep excrement instantly and would call for federal assistance. This would turn a nominally local beef (which actually it never was except in the same way that Lexington and Concord was a "local beef" in that it started in a locality first and immediately spread to other states) into a national one.With the intervention of the feds in CT, the civil war becomes national and you -- and the citizens of CT -- are much better served by operating in your own AOs which you know and tying down federal resources there. Hypothetically, since the tyrants have taken the first shots they have relieved you of the moral responsibility for their deaths in legitimate self-defense, using 4th Generation Warfare tactics according to Three Percent rules -- targeting warmakers and decision takers only, no OKCs, no terroristic "collateral damage" of anyone other than legitimate targets. A successful appeal by CT state authorities to the Feds would actually DECREASE the federal resources available to them by starting trouble in all the states -- a national civil war. That is what is on the line in CT.Bob's statement to the FBI was wise. Actually, traveling to the scene of conflict in another state would expose those who wish to help to defeat in detail by means of the tried-and-true LEO tactic of the traffic stop, one car or caravan at a time.Stay strong, in your own AO, and get ready for the fight. If it comes to CT, it will come to you. Trust me. Be careful playing with hypotheticals and OPLANS that can be used against you by the inevitable informers and agents provocateurs, and simply increase your readiness to respond locally to a national fight for liberty initiated by the tyrants."Trust in the Lord, and keep your powder dry."MikeIII
In addition to this, there has been much breast-beating on the discussion boards and blogs, similar to this comment (never accepted) on a post of mine regarding New York's tyranny.
"4GW means that not only the "only ones", but their families are at risk if cold should turn to hot."
No. No. NO. NO! How many times do I have to say it? From the 4GW link cited above:
However, a 4GW civil war waged by men and women who are loyal to the Founders’ concepts would not fight an unrestrained Al Qaeda campaign but one specifically targeted to spare civilians and to target the war decision makers. The next American civil war will either successfully break new ground in 4GW tactics and techniques or it will descend into a welter of blood and massacre. Governments have a tendency to do that when they’re losing. The 4GW warriors who claim to represent the Founders’ Republic will have to require of themselves far more discipline and intelligence -- no Fort Sumters and no Oklahoma City bombings.
Moral legitimacy is everything -- from refusal to fire the first shots to thoughtful rules of engagement tailored to American circumstances. If all you do is become the monster you claim to fight, you've lost before you've begun.
Be smart. Be prepared. Train harder. See to your logistics -- and to your own AO. Put your trust in God, my boys (and girls), and keep your powder dry. Keep your wits, and your restraint about you. It will pay off in the end, should this tyrannical power grab come to guns, Lord forbid.
Campaigns like this one are hardly new. Gun ban zealots' have been spewing the noise pollution of hysterical demands to shut down the "internet loophole" for years. Since then, we have seen similar shrieking about gun sales facilitated by Instagram (now owned by Facebook), and the social media giant Reddit. If one goes back far enough, it turns out that there was once an effort to close--get this--the "newspaper loophole," because guns sold through classified ads are apparently so much more dangerous than other guns.

"Smith & Wesson (SWHC) said Tuesday its net income for the third quarter surged 42.6%, as the gun maker benefited from heftier margins and stronger demand for firearms. The company reported a profit of $20.8 million, or 36 cents a share, compared to $14.6 million, or 22 cents a share, in the same period a year earlier."
How about prefacing each and every firearm confiscation question with the following: If you knew that it would lead to a new American civil war, would you support . . . (registration, confiscation, etc.)? Let's see what the numbers are then.
Mr. Resto had earlier rejected a plea arrangement, which must have caused Governor Dannel Malloy’s prison czar, Michael Lawlor, a moment of worry. Trials are unpredictable public presentations. One never knows what skeleton from what closet might pop out at you in the public arena. . .
Mr. Lawlor consistently has refused to supply to members of the General Assembly he left behind after he was elevated by Mr. Malloy to his present position raw data in his possession concerning the recidivism rates of those prisoners he has released early. At the same time, he has accepted credit for a drop in crime rates in Connecticut that parallels almost exactly a national drop in crime rates. Republican state legislators have implored Mr. Lawlor to restrict the parceling out of get-out-of-jail- early benefices only to non-violent incarcerated criminals – to no avail. He hands his credits out impartially to rapists and child molesters. His poorly designed program is as dangerous to the public as the San Andreas Fault. For these and other reasons, he should be fired.
PS: And I used some of the packing to fill out the "politician grade" package going with the hard copy of the letter to Lt. Darth "I am the master" Vance. ;-)
