    He was in support of a pro-democracy, anti-fascist militia to defend from a Nazi invasion. He wasn’t suggesting to own guns for the sake of owning guns.

    This quote is being taken out of context to justify this gun culture which is enabling mass shootings.

    This quote comes from a story on a specific military unit, at the height of WWII. Regardless, he doesn't say "that Tommy gun" or "that machine gun." Last I saw, the kind of rifle a laborer would have in his home in 1942 has very little to do with semi-automatic weapons in America today.

    He's right, it's a symbol, but let's not kid ourselves that a symbol of freedom is what actually secures our freedom. It doesn't matter what we choose to be the symbol because it is the people behind the symbol that actually secures democracy.

    It's so weird to me, having grown up in the cold war, to reach a time when the GOP sucks the syphilitic cack of the Russian intelligence services and pro2A folks quote outspoken communist George Orwell for support of their right to bear arms. I love the second amendment and I love America, but Jesus fuck, what is happening in this country right now?

    Considering that American police have become militarized to the point that practically every police precinct has a SWAT team with automatic weapons and heavy assault vehicles, how exactly do you expect the workers Orwell prized above everything else, even political ideologies, to stand against a tyrannical state? With bolt action rifles or handguns? People should have access to the same, if not better, firepower as the state. Otherwise, self-defense would be impossible.

    It seems someone is doing a bad job because looks like rifles are everywhere but hanging on the walls.

    Reddit is such a group-think circle jerk now. Moderation is anything but, and the reflections of political tribalism in popular content and interactions is so evident. My last comment ever. Goodbye, good riddance

    Yeah, the assault rifle used in the picture is not the rifle that George Orwell was referencing.

    I see all this madness in the world and cant help but think. How does everyone not own a gun? When did personal accountability become a myth
