It's really quite-simple folks.
Yes, it's 20 minutes. Watch it. Distribute it. Then enforce it.
If companies want to back those who advocate for and declare they will commit millions of murders they need to be put out of business -- lawfully, through irrevocable boycotts. Those who support or work for any organization or firm that lend support to those advocating for millions of murders need to become unemployed -- and permanently unemployable. No exceptions, no ifs, no ands and no buts.
There are those who say that there's a "cold civil war" going on right now culturally. Well, maybe. But the people on the left are not arguing for a "cold" civil war -- they are advocating, supporting and declaring intent to commit mass-murder, in America, on the scale of Rwanda -- or even Nazi Germany.
If someone tells you repeatedly and to your face that they intend to murder you what is your response? Do you actually associate with and buy products from those who state they are willing and intend to commit millions of murders to achieve a political goal?
That's what all those who support banning or registering any sort of firearm in America are actually stating. It is a fact that some percentage of Americans believe the words of the 2nd Amendment mean what they say: shall not be infringed. We can have whatever debate you wish on what percentage of Americans believe this but I am absolutely certain of one thing: It's not zero. If that figure is even 0.1% of the American population then a demand to ban any gun is a declaration of intent to murder 300,000 Americans to get what you want. If it's 1% then that number is 3.3 million murders. And if it's 3%? Then there are 10 million people who everyone that supports such a ban is stating they intend to murder simply because those individuals believe that the Constitution is not a dead letter and means exactly what it says.
Not a single one of the people arguing for "gun bans" or "gun registration" wants to actually reduce gun violence. It is an outrageous fraud to claim you're "against gun violence" when the actual position you are taking is that you're willing to murder millions of Americans to obtain a political goal.
That this declaration has not resulting in an immediate shooting war -- a civil war on our own soil -- is simply because with the exception of the criminally insane a simple declaration of intent to murder millions doesn't contain enough credibility for people to take it seriously.
It is a grave error to believe that this will continue beyond the point that the first people are actually murdered in furtherance of that declaration of intent. It is a further grave error, and one that can easily lead to an actual civil war with millions of Americans lying dead on both sides of the debate, for you to fail to point this fact out every time you hear such a phrase as "common sense" gun restrictions and take corrective action to demand that those who have and do adopt such positions declare their true intent in public -- that is, to force them to publicly admit their intention to murder all who disagree while accepting the social, economic and political consequences of doing so.
