The political class has gone into full-assault mode against the Second Amendment…

…and the right to self-defense. As a result, things are getting strange. Rhetoric is getting strange.

Positions are hardening. People are hardening. This, for instance, from NaturalNews.com:

In the aftermath of the tragic Sandy Hook shooting, the gun grabbers across America unleashed a full court press to try to wholly disarm American citizens. With the help of the incessantly anti-gun mainstream media, people like Biden, Bloomberg, Cuomo, Feinstein and Obama managed to stir up a frenzy of fabricated fear that promised all our children would be violently gunned down if we didn’t immediately agree to turn in all our guns and ammo magazines.

The push for gun control, however, has spectacularly backfired. In reality, it has hardened the positions of gun rights advocates while massively increasing the number of AR-15s and other firearms sold across the country.

The backfire is far worse than the gun grabbers could have possibly imagined when they launched their efforts on the graves of the dead Sandy Hook children. Here’s my analysis of what has factually happened….

While the gun grabbers wanted sheriffs and cops to jump on board the gun disarmament bandwagon, what actually happened is that sheriffs began speaking out AGAINST gun control and encouraging their local constituents to arm themselves. Sheriffs across the country — in huge numbers — publicly proclaimed they would not allow federal agents to enforce gun restrictions in their counties.

While gun grabbers wanted states to fall in line and surrender to federal authority on the issue of gun control, what actually happened is that the Firearms Protection Act began to be introduced in state legislatures such as Wyoming and Texas. This act, which is now being considered in more than a dozen other states, would make it a felony crime for anyone to enforce new federal gun restrictions in their states.

While gun grabbers hoped the U.S. military would agree to fire upon American citizens who refused to turn in their guns, what really happened is that huge numbers of active duty soldiers announced they would never participate in military action against their own countrymen. In fact, inside the military there is rising talk of shooting commanding officers in the head if they order troops to fire on American citizens over gun rights issues.

    Furthermore, I think that America, with its unique all-volunteer armed forces, and relatively short terms of service, has a HUGE turnover which translates into vast numbers of 30 and 40-something combat-trained veterans who took an oath to defend our freedoms, and won’t take martial law lying down.

      I hope lots of ‘em live in New Hamsters, but I’m afraid most live in Texas, crAZy Land, and AK-49th.

        We have our share, but I bet more of them live in those hospitable climes you mentioned.
        You should have seen the number of ex-military at the 2nd amendment rallies.

          I just hoped the quivering pols above you, perched under the gilded dome like a bunch of clucking chickens, saw you guys. It helps temper the sausage mix if they’re nervous.
