Underneath the recent Quote of the Day by P.J. O’Rourke, TTAG commentator dwb wrote “If you read amicus briefs on the 1st amendment in a gun blog . . . you might be member of the armed intelligentsia.” Or something like that. Dee Dubs was riffing on Jeff Foxworthy’s “you might be a redneck” routine. How about “If you read the owner’s manual for your new gun before you take it to the range . . . you might be member of the armed intelligentsia.” Or “If you can’t mention the Second Amendment without calling it your “natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms” . . . you might be member of the armed intelligentsia.” Or a hopeless pedant. “If you know that the word ‘pedant’ doesn’t indicate a criminal offense . . . you might be member of the armed intelligentsia.” Your turn. The best one wins a free Armed Intelligentsia “Stand Strong Connecticut” T-shirt. Click here to purchase one (half of profits go to Connecticut Carry) regardless.
Home Gun Control You Might Be A Member of the Armed Intelligentsia…
If through knowledge, history, and education of firearms and their history you turned from a flag-burning liberal to a goddamned proud red blooded American…You might be a member of the Armed Inteligemtia.
*True story of myself.
I second this story.
i eight it
Red-blooded? You mean COMMIE-BLOODED!
Kidding aside, I agree with that one.
There is nothing wrong with burning the flag as a sign of protest. There is nothing wrong with buring the flag out of respect to dispose of it properly. While I have done the second I have never been so mad at my government that I was willing to do the first.
Perhaps we should just remove a number of stars to symbolize the slave states that have abandoned the Constitution and burn those. The flag stands as the proud symbol of freedom, as intended, less the offending states.
Welcome. It takes intelligence to check the facts and integrity to challenge one’s own long-held beliefs from time to time. Not everyone has the personal courage to get out of their own safety zone to do so.
I suspect there are many like you, on that journey, and I applaud those reading at TTAG for their first glimpses of the truth about guns and the wider culture sea-change underway.
Awesome! I join you on this one!
If your definition of gun control is hitting your target…
Or, if gun safety means don’t point your gun at something you don’t intend to destroy.
If the world seems upside down you might have half a brain.
If you see nothing wrong with constitutional carry, then …
a.k.a. if you think the simple act of carrying a self-defense tool is not by itself legitimate grounds for being deemed a criminal …
You might be a member of the AI if…
You had an opinion during the Israeli Supermodel Debate (ISD) of ’13.
Dark times my friend, dark times. 🙂
I remember that day sad to see the models go 🙁
You had to remind me,
I went through 5 years theraphy because of that.
Though one day they will return, not only Israeli supermodels, but from the entire world!
We’ve moved on to Kirsten now
No disrespect to Kirsten but one beautiful woman isn’t the same as a bunch of beautiful women.
Why have quality alone when you can have quality AND quantity?
If you realize that guns are inanimate objects and very useful tools, then …
If you have 6,000 rounds on hand for guns you don’t own….yet.
If you study ballistics tables for both utility and entertainment…
Why? You just wing it. See where the dirt jumps with the first shot and then holdover(holdsider too) to hit the target.
Might be a tad expensive with .338 Lapua.
Because a second shot can betray your position. 😛
sure will…..never take a shot longer then what you can hit first shot
Then you ain’t sniping properly.
Pop (sighter), pop (lethal), pop (lethal 2) then run to a new position. Rinse and repeat til you are out of breath or opponents.
RIfles like the Dragunov SVD or M14 are particularily suited to this (lightweight while handling abuse like hitting the dirt).
Guilty as charged. I used to study ballistics tables every time I took a #2.
And I emailed Cabela’s because they didn’t list the velocity of their Herter’s / S&B .338 Lapua with the 250 grain Sierra Matchking. Its 2878 FPS from a 26″ barrel, by the way.
If you study ballistics tables solely for entertainment… 😀
If you look to Thucydides for guidance on where to carry…
If you correct people by telling them “clips” are for hair magazines are for reloading
… And then get annoyed when some passerby brings up M1 Garrand en-block clips that live in the magazine, just to confuse new shooters…
Clips feed magazines, mags feed guns.
I thought magazines were for reading??? 😀
If through some stroke of fate you have had children and friends involved in more than one mass shooting, and still realize that armed civilians are part of the answer . . .
My son was in Arapahoe High school, had friends in Columbine and another in the Aurora theater. I am lucky enough to still have them all.
Oddly enough, I don’t live in CO anymore. Not as a direct result of those experiences. After all, it can and does happen anywhere.
Just give this man the t-shirt.
Thank you for the sentiment, but the contest is for the best clever response. Everybody should get a fair shake at the shirt based on the merits of their creativity. Besides, I already have the best gifts/prizes of all based on my experiences. My friends and family have all come out of it needing nothing more than therapy and a hug. Well, lots of hugs.
Shirts for the whole family then. Sounds like your circle of friends and family have been truly blessed.
Ok. You win. He gets the prize. There is no contest here.
Is anything more clever than the truth? You get my vote.
Give him that damned Walther P-22 as well!
Thank you again for your generous suggestion but I have already entered for that contest once. As much as another addition to the safe would be enjoyed I would rather win it on a level playing field from that contests own merits. Should I be fortunate enough to win the shirt I will submit a write up of how these events have touched my family over the last nearly two decades. If not I will continue to sprinkle bits of it in various future posts.
I begin to see a pattern here, Ian. Anybody that’s close to you gets shot at. May we never meet.(Yellow smiley face)
If your response to gun control legislation is citing three or more Supreme Court cases off the top of your head, you might be a member of the armed intelligentsia.
Literally just did that yesterday lol.
Guilty as charged.
Yep, done that myself.
If a small part of you dies inside every time you see someone rack the slide of a pistol before getting ready to shootemup in a movie, then…
…Or you cringe whenever you hear the sound of a safety clicking off whenever someone draws a Glock in a tv show or movie…
Or they cock the hammer back on a glock….
Or when they rack the slide on the same weapon at least 3 times in the movie without ever firing it.
If you know your firearms manual says “product not intended for use by criminals”…..
If you know what a preferatory clause is…
I had to look that up, so today, I learned something.
If your favorite night of television is Wednesdays on the Outdoor Channel… and your Youtube subscriptions include NRA NEWS, Mr. Colion Noir, and Hickock45. You might be member of the armed intelligentsia.
Don’t forget Rated RR and Mattv2099.
Don’t forget Military Arms Channel and Iraqveteran8888.
If you can ID the make and model of an obscure gun used in a movie WITHOUT going to IMFDB…
How obscure? I can’t ID some prototype Nam’ era ARs but can ID some rare guns from WW2 (and WW1 to some extent).
Damnit! Now there’s another web site I’ll find myself addicted to.
My evil plan is slowly coming to fruition. Mwahahaha…
How didn’t you know about IMFDB? Where do you go to find out what weapon was used in that movie or to confirm that it was indeed a AKM and not AK-47 in that other movie?
If you can’t watch a movie without IMFDB pulled up on your phone….
I’m starting to do that these days. Between guns and cars, I annoy my wife a good bit between identifying things then explaining.
If your most often used acronyms are DGU, RKBA, OFWG, FUD, MAIG, FOAD and STFU…
Since you brought it up – I know what a FUDD is, by I am a little lost by FUD. Define, please, so I can fully join the A.I.
Fear Uncertainty and Doubt.
I do believe his name is JEFF Foxworthy.
Perhaps he was mixing him up with Bill Engvall.
If you discuss Boyle’s law and hoop stress and how they directly correlate with one another in the development and use of firearms and suppressors….
…you might be a mechanical engineer.
I might be, too.
If movie gun fights have begun to annoy more than entertain…
You might be a member of the AI.
(O/U shotguns magically making pumping sounds, revolvers dispensing brass, thousand round magazines)
If you wan’t to see a realistic shootout I recommend watching “Heat”.
I second both the annoyance and watching Heat. Also recommend Collateral, also by Michael Mann. I don’t normally like Tom Cruise but he was excellent. There’s a scene with a shootout at a night club that is just awesome.
My favorite shoot out scene. Might have to do with the fact I had just finished basic training when Heat hit the theaters. 🙂
Also the final battle in “Open Range.”
I am usually annoyed when friends blab during a movie, their revenge is to play any flick that involves heavy usage of firearms. Then I become that guy that will not shut up. Most recently I was watching Revolution with a friend, it was the first time someone had to pause Netflix and ask me to shut up or leave.
the sound of the hammer being cocked on a Glock.
You might be a member of the armed intelligentsia if you firmly believe the Second Amendment is the bulwark that defends the rest of the Bill of Rights, directly and indirectly.

If you get nostalgic over the smell of hoppes #9,you might be…
Just a dab behind each ear and some on my wrists.
If it wasn’t for Hoppe’s #9, you wouldn’t be here!

They are already made:
If you feel compelled to ID the make, model, and caliber of every gun on TV, OUT LOUD, even when nobody else is in the room- you might be a member of the AI.
My in-laws get a strange mix of annoyance and respect when I do that.
Annoyed that I do, respect that I can.
Give Gregolas the shirt.
Though I never get a good reaction when I do that. It is always “weirdo” this “psycho” that for me, so I keep it to myself.
That’s pretty typical for anything in Norway. :p
One does not simply turn off the gun part of their brain….
Guilty. I usually just say heavily armed weirdo instead of ‘armed intelligentsia’
If you stand strong with Connecticut…
If you comment under gun blog articles and, convinced that your point isn’t coming across, write a 4-part series of articles instead.
How about, ‘if you’re reading this site’….?
If you subscribe to The New York Times to “Know your Enemy”.
….. and listen to NPR radio. Always good to know what THEY are thinking.
If you accidently reach for the Hoppe’s No. 9, instead of creamer, when making your coffee. You might be a …
If you have literally screamed at your television when they get something firearm related horribly wrong.
See: click hello, Glock 7, .28 caliber chinese plastic gun, the 30+ shot revolver, bullet impacts causing badguy to fly back 10yds, unnecessary shotgun pumping, magic guns with no recoil, magic guns with way too much recoil, Glocks and revolvers with safeties, and my favorite, the bullets that spark on car doors that dont even damage the paint.
If you find yourself increasingly incapable of reducing your reasoned arguments against gun control to pithy one liners, instead relying on overwhelming bodies of reference materials, precedent court cases, and memorization of the last six years of the FBI uniform crime report to intellectually bulldoze your opponent………..
I’ve actually gone in the opposite direction, the antis who actually try to argue with me won’t be convinced if I said gun ownership would cure brain cancer. Pithy one liners keep me on the moral high ground with the fence sitters around me, and they generally think the anti is the douche at the end of the convo. Most importantly it keeps my blood pressure from spiking as it tends to do whenever I run into a prog of any type.
Yup. Let them make a douche out of themselves and you win.
Your 14yr old goes to see to see “Son of God” with his youth group and his take-a-away is the inaccurate depiction of the use of Roman Arms/Armor (and materials in the boat scene (steel)).

For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!

Ref: Violations of ‘Rights’ in Connecticut
Regardless of the intent expressed by the legislators, the evidence is now irrefutable that their actions have resulted in transposing many among the vast numbers of Morally-conscious, ‘Rights’-respecting, Law-abiding, Dutiful and Peaceable Citizens into ‘criminals under law’.
Given these and other facts, the only logical, rational and reasonable solution to the legal problems lawmakers have created for themselves, the Citizens and those now trapped in the tenuous position as law-enforcement officers — is to immediately rescind the laws as enacted.
Suggestion to de-escalate the legislatively-created conflict as follows:
While our initial intent was purely in the interest of making an effort to enact laws with a mind toward preventing gun violence and enhancing safety and security;
upon further review and given ancillary considerations;
We as representatives, find that;-
the laws as enacted were beyond the scope of Constitutionally-permitted authority and inconsistent with our Moral, Ethical and Legal Duties to ‘Secure Rights’ of all Citizens of the Great State of Connecticut.
Therefore, all laws under Public Act 13-3, Concerning Gun Violence Prevention and Children’s Safety are hereby rescinded.
[ Simple point of inquiry: What better reason can there possibly be for legislators to avoid enacting ‘Rights’-violating laws than simply adhering to laws already written into Constitutions as ‘Rights‘ they‘re Duty-bound to protect, secure and defend?
In the case at hand all that’s necessary is to simply rescind those erroneously written. ]
You are forget they also have on file at this time a register of over 50,000 residents who foolishly complied with their unconstitutional demands.
Part of any action rescinding this law must be a provision that this registration information be destroyed and that any government official found to be in possession of this information after a date certain is guilty of a Class D felony.
