It didn’t take long for Bloomberg’s goons at the NYPD to jump out and let us all know that the most recent whack job with the hots for castor beans was an evil gun nut. With this latest white powder copycat apparently an IGOTD, some self-reflection may be in order for the Armed Intelligentsia. We all dreaded this moment, hoping it wouldn’t come. We looked forward to it about as much as a Rosie O’Donnell fan club hot tub group date. But we all probably knew, somewhere deep down, that it was only a matter of time before some closet case figured that doing something stupid like mailing a few envelopes of poison was a good way to effect some change. Maybe we’ll be lucky and this copycat will have copycatted a botched setup much like the last copycat mailer, but I’m not holding my breath . . .
The question now is, how do we respond? How, in the world in which we live, with the anti-gun media we have, do we limit the damage this may cause to the pro-choice gun movement? Can we stop the SWAT mobiles of civilian disarmament — also known as the main stream media — that are always ready to roll, surely building a battle plan and beginning to lurch forward even as I type this?
