Delusions of Grandeur

"I'm out of it for a little while, everyone gets delusions of grandeur!" ` Han Solo (Return of the Jedi)

Facebook has been flooded with various opinions regarding gun restrictions, control, and banning. There are reasonable voices on both sides that I agree with... but I also had to state this last night during one conversation:

...and can we just say that there is a group of gun owners out there with delusions of grandeur. They saw Taps when they were younger and just get wet at the thought of government forces surrounding them in some building while they bravely hold out, screaming with Tom Crusie "It's Beautiful man! Beautiful!" as they fire on government forces...

Seriously, if you had a chance to listen to the Alex Jones interview, you know what I am talking about. Or the CEO of Tactical Response who declared, "I'm not letting anybody take my guns. If it goes one inch further, I'm going to start killing people."

Yep, folks like this are similar to those in religion who look forward to an apocalypse. Their lives are so small, they dream of something BIG happening that they can be part of.
