Counterintuitive Man says: "You can have my gun when you take it from my cold dead finger," is a total myth!

Spineless American whiners at a huge gun show recently were busy stocking up on mountains of ammo, buckets of magazines and reloading supplies, "for when Obama takes over," according to the Uninvited Ombudsman, who watched and heard their whines in between signing books for fans. Buy now or forever forgo your piece, eh?

Like during Katrina, when obedient slavish Americans meekly turned over their guns, handle -- not bullets -- first, to cooperative authorities, gun show buyers were preparing by stockpiling. The assumption was that authorities were preparing to take the guns from their warm live fingers with either a smile (we're from the government and we're here to save you) or with a tough gritty face, at gunpoint.

Not one gun owner fired one shot during the Katrina confiscations, to avoid "news" broadcasts that would have said, "Crazed maniac shoots at peaceful peace officers maintaining neighborhood safety after disaster, and is shot dead in a hail of police gunfire along with his entire family and dog; neighbors thank police for their brave efforts and propose statues; dead gunman may have had mental problems, motive is still unknown, police found 300 rounds of live assault ammunition in his flooded compound bunker; more news at six."

The revolution will not be televised. It will not be brought to you in three parts by any sponsor, and it will not feature guns taken from cold dead fingers.
