    These military weapons are no match for my Steampunk Laser Gun.

    The NRA is not keeping up with the times. Private individuals should have access to those surplus toys as well.

    Why do cops on the street, sailors in submarines, or for that matter general officers doing press conferences wear “cammo” fatigues??? There is a disjunct psychology being played here to make “civilians” recognize, and accept that militarization so desired by the military industrial complex, and yes those “conservative thinkers” accept the omnipotent power of “the state”. It is NOT a “liberal” view of independent thought, questioning of “authority” misplaced, or subjugation of our freedoms.


    Cammo has become the 21st century version of “brown shirts” and in Italy at that time, black shirts. Acceptance becomes submission- not good for a free and democratic society…

    Ross Douthat explained in the Sunday New York Times why, in a nation where terrorists and gangsters are attacking the good citizens in every city, town, and village, every police force desperately needs multiple BearCats.

    I like it. There is no dark side of human nature. It’s all dark.

    You’re the first one, I know of, to point that out! It IS very odd.

    Someone else, a few days back, pointed out that this is desert camoflage. In Missouri.

    I like the gun but does it actually do anything?

    For many years I’ve deplored the wearing of camo at all occasions. I just can’t figure out if this represents a [lame] attempt by the military to show that they are always ready or if shows just the military version of ‘casual Friday’ – every day of the week.

    “Move toward the light.”

    Every day! I run and I run to catch up with the Sun, but it’s sinking, and racing around to come up behind me again. As a result, I rise about 50 minutes later every day in my lunacy.

    Well said, dtroutma. From now on, I’ll use the term “camos” in place of brownshirts.

    There is a ton of evidence in Psychological literature that shows that people are far more capable of violence if their identities are concealed. So it’s not just the camo that makes them indistinguishable, you will note that they are also always masked with visors or balaclavas.

    @Hiram Bingham

    The identities of police persons and military personnel is never concealed. They are known to their superiors and accountable for their every action. Mobs, on the other hand, are wholly anonymous.

    ^ And HOW long did it take us to learn the name of Michael Brown’s killer?
