Editor’s Note: Mark McCloskey is considering running for U.S. Senate in Missouri.
I’ve changed my mind.
I’m ready to give up my guns now.
After watching the corporate media incite all of those violent riots last summer and glorify Black Lives Matter and Antifa, I am also ready to agree with Ibram X. Kendi’s proposal to “Abolish the Police” and embrace mob rule. I was reassured by Joe Biden last night after he personally intervened in the Derek Chauvin trial and blamed it all on systematic racism. Clearly, we also need Merrick Garland invoking Reconstruction and that guy who posed in the ruins of Waco in charge of the ATF. The Second Amendment is one of those “Anglo-Saxon institutions” which has fallen out of fashion in our “new progressive era” like the Constitution which was written by “white supremacists.”
I’m obviously joking.
I’ve always been quite fond of the Bill of Rights.
I’m a White Christian Southerner who lives in the middle of nowhere in rural Alabama. I’m surrounded by gun owners and gun enthusiasts and like it that way. Virtually everyone in my family feels more strongly about the issue than I do although I share their views on the subject.
Alabama was recently ranked as one of the worst states in the country. Please, do not move here. Stay put in Portland or San Francisco. We’re not very progressive around here. In fact, we are so racist and backward and opposed to your agenda that you would probably be better off letting us secede.
