Chris Ladd has been arguing for a while now that the whole “guns vs. tyranny” thing is a deadly delusion that does nothing but reinforce white supremacy, and so on and so forth. But then he drops this whopper:
Ladd and I had an exchange on Twitter wherein he tries to tell me that he’s not making the case that it reads to me like he’s pretty clearly making.
Twitter’s threading model being what it is, it’s hard to follow the whole back-and-forth. But anyway, I certainly think it’s possible that he still would rather see guns disappear from American life, and that he hasn’t fully reckoned with the darker implications of his own arguments.
Or, there is also a lot of “to him who has an ear, let him hear” speech going on in this post, so it could be that an exchange on this topic that happened out of earshot would be different from the one we just had. I dunno.
Anyway, I wanted to put this out there to the group to chew on.
