Putting the lid on the bottom

All American Blogger talks about Gun Free Zones and the Ketchup Bottle:
Let’s switch gears for a second and consider the ketchup bottle. For years, the ketchup bottle would sit on the shelf and gravity would draw all the ketchup to the bottom of the bottle. Then, when a person needed some of the condiment, they had to work to get it out of the bottle. Finally, someone said, “Why don’t we just flip it over and put the lid on the bottom?” Now, the ketchup is there when you need it. Why didn’t they think of this before? They were trained in a particular way of thinking, and they had to move themselves away from it.
Unfortunately, the most effective form of this paradigm shift is when some anti-self-defense nitwit gets mugged or assaulted. They usually change their minds about it, then. Still unfortunately, their propaganda creates converts to the Cult of Victimhood faster than reality can administer the individual cluebat.


  1. Very true. For example, do you remember the story about an Ohio anti-gun Democrat who voted against concealed carry not once, but twice, and was then mugged.

    He changed his tune.

  2. Reminds me of something my father use to say, which was,"Liberals are Conservatives who just haven't been mugged yet." It rings so true doesn't it.
