Really? Now, it's the gun owners?

"this whole gun debate is making libertarians and gun owners look like nut-jobs"

That is ridiculous. I don't have a gun, I don't have much invested in this debate other than I do not want to live in a police state where people I trust more than the police are not allowed to have guns. I don't know if "they" are coming for people's guns or not because if they come for mine I don't have anything to give them.

I am coming at this from a different angle. People here worry too much about libertarians looking crazy. Get over it and move on. People here are passionate. I am not an anarchist, but they have my heart because they are passionate, yet they are always accused of hurting the precious "movement". I am a conspiracy theorists and I guarantee you I am not hurting anyone, others would tell you different. The preppers are some of the smartest people you will meet, yet every now and then they get called crazy. There are so many factions in this crowd and they all get called crazy and accused of making other libertarians look crazy. Why are you worried about what people think about your label as a libertarian?

You are the only person that can make you look crazy.

Of course some things might be a distraction for "them" to do what "they" want, it doesn't mean people should not be concerned.
