Many have seen the video of a Virginia congressional Democratic candidate creating herself a sweet sawed-off AR-15 [resulting in a visit from the ATF ] with nothing more than a Workmate, angle grinder, and her husband’s $1000 firearm.
Problem is, not everyone has the means to show their character (or lack
thereof), destroying a vital piece of safety equipment in a useless
gesture of virtue signaling. This isn’t the same as eating cheap, easy
to get Tide pods, these are expensive firearms that take a lot of effort
Leftists could destroy other crucial security items to show their
desire to be incapable of helping themselves. Instead of obliterating
safety items such as guns, they could wreck fire extinguishers or shred
first aid kits. But still, this might not be enough to demonstrate their
vicissitudes of virtuous victimhood. After all, doing anything to prove
their impotence would be contrary to the effort.
We on the Conservatarian, Pro-Liberty side can help the Leftists demonstrate their virtue in dependency.
This is where we on the Pro-Liberty side of the aisle can step in to help them out. We can offer the means for their ‘virtual’ salvation in showing their gun-free status, being unable to defend themselves.
There is no real reason that the virtuous Leftist need to go through
the cost or effort to buy a gun just to destroy it for demonstrating
they are helpless. Publicly announcing this fact will have a have the
same effect for very little cost – in terms of money for at least the
moment – medical bills or funeral expenses from being a crime victim
could be another story.
This is where we tell them: “Here’s your sign”
Rather than helping themselves, Leftists can publicly proclaim they cannot.
We can give them a sign announcing their gun free status as
defenseless, each will be sized to suit the circumstances in which it
will be displayed. For the domiciles of these potential crime victims a
two-faced sign of the 3 by 8-meter variety so every miscreant in the
area knows who to target. The back-end of a Prius would need to sport a
small but still prominent disarmed declaration – some carjackers may be
suffering from bad eyesight. No need to discriminate against those folks
after all. A Gun-free button would serve the same function on a
personal level. Of course, many a school, church or other
establishment have been already proudly displaying their status as a
‘Gun-free’ zone, so they are way ahead of us in this effort.
A win-win-win for everybody.
Leftists could show the illegal element who to victimize. We on the Conservatarian, Pro-Liberty side can be secure from these reprobates.
While the ‘job’ of the criminals would be that much easier knowing who
cannot defend themselves. This should be something everyone can support
especially the potential virtuous victims of the nation’s Socialist
