Aesop in comments:
…Because most of the country, like most people who read and post here, have two settings:
2) Fuck it, kill every last one of them.
We move to #2 slowly, but it’s nigh irrevocable once it happens, and unstoppable until we run out of targets. Which will happen long before we run out of ammunition.
This will not be the Alamo x 1000.
It will be Little Big Horn.
And this time, we get to be the Indians…
