Arms and the Mideast Crisis

It seems to me that if our opponents made fun of us for suggesting arms in civilian hands might have been handy in Egypt, Libya is a better example of the notion. Peaceful protest only works against a regime that is reluctant to murder its own people wholesale.

    Iran is the big one. The Revolutionary Guard doesn’t hesistate to kill unarmed political protesters.

    We should be dropping cheap pistols and carbines over Iran like we did France during WWII.

    Good plan for Libya, Bram. At the moment, it’s likely but not 100% assured Kaddafi is going to be gone soon–his forces have actually been rallying this week despite obvious opposition from the majority of Libyans. The world’s collective fretting & hand-wringing without real action is predictable, but not acceptable.

    And you have to remember that a lot of anti gunners either openly or not; want the US government to slaughter American gun owners wholesale.
