Are we as supporters of freedom and specifically firearms freedoms our own worst enemies? Are we so loud, brazen, and in your face about our beliefs that we scare the other side into some serious defensive posturing? A wise man once said that we as humans are nothing more than animals. Animals built upon instinct and emotion. Just like everything else that walks this Earth. So is our posturing activities making the other side posture even more to counter-act what we do? . . .
The planned demonstrations of open-carry, the speeches on the steps of capitol buildings, and flashing face on mass media are all for lack of a better word “peacocking”. We’re here to be loud, proud, and flashy so the people of our country and world recognize who we are and what we are standing up here for. Think for a moment if perhaps everything the other side is doing is nothing more than knee jerk reactions to our activities?
Sure, we’ve had tragedies over the years that the mass media spins into its liberal cycle of tears turned to anger, but are we helping or hurting our own cause by what we do? How can this tug-o-war of beliefs ever end? Perhaps in the end we’ll end up destroying one another or the goodness of men will prevail. At the end of the day, it’s up to us.
