Gun Control Activists Support Libya

Historically, gun control is one of the first laws implemented by authoritarian gov't's to control the population.

Currently there is an armed rebellion against long-time Libyan Dictator Qaddafi. Libya (and Egypt) had a long term, internationally recognized, stable and functional federal Gov't which was determined by individuals (and later masses) that it was tyrannical. It is currently in the throes of a civil war supported by much of the world.

Yet here are some interesting quotes by Ladd Everitt of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV):
"I'm very familiar with what they said and did against armed individuals who perceived "tyranny" & used violence."

"Our Founding Fathers knew what it was when they crushed armed rebels who decided gov't was "tyrannical."

Traitors who preach armed political violence against our government certainly will not support CSGV. "

"Our position is that the use of political violence by individuals is illegitimate and extra-constitutional."

"Yeah, there's a big difference b/n disagreeing and calling for violence, civil war and secession."

What about the traitors who arm themselves against our government?

By these statements made by Ladd Everitt of the CSGV, their position is that these revolutions are illegitimate. That is unless they try to argue that our form of Gov't is superior (which it is). On that, one then has to ask why they support laws/positions in direct violation of the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th amendments to the founding document of our nation? Support of which would give the the gov't extra-constitutional and authoritarian powers. Powers specifically opposed by our Founding Fathers.

So they're either in support of statist thugs or they're hypocrites. But why choose? They're both.

Since the U.S. is supporting "insurrectionists," does that render the U.S. government a criminal enterprise? If so, would armed defiance against that government not be illegitimate "insurrection," but legitimate opposition to international criminality?

Oh, what a thorny conundrum for CSGV.

Given that Ladd considers white men shooting a black man to keep him from voting to be nothing more than "political corruption" that should be handled in a non-violent fashion, something tells me he has cute little pom-poms with Ghadaffi's favorite colors on them...
