We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I have always disliked the gun controllers being dismissive of the idea of confiscation, as if it is ridiculous to even think it would happen. I will grant that it is unlikely there will be large armed cohorts going house-to-house, searching, destroying, confiscating. It will be like these examples today: one at a time, oh-I'm-sorry-but-that's-the-wrong-sort-of-gun, making the fees prohibitive, not allowing you simple permissions on the basis of misunderstanding firearms. They will be calm, polite tyrants.
