I think that duplicity stems from nothing but cowardice on the part of most gun owners. They justify the arrests of people for violations of unconstitutional laws because they're too lazy or scared to do anything about it. That's why our rights are dwindling -- because the government doesn't fear any reprisals from the sheep. Gun laws are designed to enslave, pure and simple. Who gives a crap about following such "laws"? They're for cowardly sheep. I'm not saying people should publicly flaunt NFA violations or such things. It's possible to have no respect for "authority" but still be mindful of the danger it can present. Few of us would have any respect for the "authority" of an armed street gang demanding protection money, but we'd still be foolish to deliberately confront one by ourselves. But if confrontation is inevitable, then the courageous choice needs to be made. This defendant, if he really did invite the enforcer thugs to "come and get him," should have taken a few with him. I know it's easier said than done, but it MUST be done. And I'll do it when my time comes.
