“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Good Guys with Guns

"Hey Salazar, you f--king fascist, you want to outlaw magazines? Come and f--king take them. Are you will to kill the f--king outlaw magazines, because you will f--king die."

A Colorado state rep heard this on his voicemail this week while preparing a law to restrict the amount of bullets you can have, mandatory background checks etc.

Which proves a point I keep making about Wayne La Pierre and his shouting potato performance: "The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun."

A bad guy with a gun is precisely a guy with a gun who thinks he's a good guy with a gun.
