Bustling with Activity

We haven’t had much time to check things out yet due to our arrival delay, but the convention center already seems bustling considering how early it is.

We’ve already heard local press trading hunting stories. That’s just awesome.

Sebastian tweeted earlier today: “At the airport waiting to go to Houston. Lots of NRA looking types about.” Turns out they were just Texans. One of them started telling the other Texans around him that they should come down to the Annual Meeting and sign up for life membership. He said he could not make it, but he was actively encouraging other people to join.

I might be from Oklahoma and have it breed into me to hate this area known as “south of the Red River,” but even I had to smile at that great attitude.

    I am so envious, wish I could be there. I have a question for you and maybe the reps there. Many comments on the blogs concerning the second amendment are about fighting tyranny. Of course the troll response is no way an armed citizen band is going to beat the US military. As a veteran, I have doubts about the military obeying unlawful orders. However, our national police forces answerable only to the various national bureaucracies scare the heck out of me. Your thoughts and other smarter peoples than me?

      I believe you are correct about MOST of the military. However, while a lot of the national police forces would help the bureaucrats, I believe a lot of them would also be on our side. There are 90 million gun owners, and I believe they could at most gather up a few million against us (don’t forget about foreign troops, there are about 2 million training on US soil as we speak. Plus they would no doubt bring UN troops). It’s not the enemy infantry that scares me, it’s their technology. They have thousands of drones, equipped with infrared lenses and missiles. There’s not much we could do against those, and they can be operated remotely and face no personnel losses. Our only choice at that point would be to go on the offensive, only problem is we wouldn’t know where to go. Lots of scary things to think about, especially when you can’t actually plan for them.
