Response to Agnosticsherbet (Reply #46)

66. I saw no implication of antisemitism in the OP in question.

Nor do I think it was satire. Nor do I agree with the argument presented. The reasoning behind the argument has merit but was incompletely articulated.

Gun owners are routinely accused of mental instability, criminal intent, sociopathy and cowardice on a regular basis using much more direct insinuations. And there are very few negative consequences for those insinuations. Gun owners are the "undesirables" here.

If you don't like what was posted, why don't you prove him wrong? Write an OP and start a discussion instead of fleeing to the safety of your sense of propriety? What do you have to lose?

I would suggest you invite rDigital here to expand on his thesis and see how it holds up. That thesis, as I read it, is primarily concerned with the possibility of an armed populace to resist despotic overthrow. While I don't think personally owned civillian arms would have stopped the Wehrmacht, and the example used was unnecessarily hyperbolic, the subject itself merits discussion.
