Gun fanatics: Rod Serling and the people on Maple Street have a message for you . . .
I suggest that all the gun fanatics on this forum take half an hour and watch an episode of the Twilight Zone entitled:

The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street

It's a very enlightening episode, quite applicable to what you are all doing in regards to what you perceive as a near future and inevitable total disarmament of all American citizens.

I am quite sure the irony of this TZ episode will escape most of you . . . but for those who get it, perhaps it will make you understand that your hysterical rantings and frenetic panic are PRECISELY what TPTB WANT.

SETTLE THE HELL DOWN.

Don't be so paranoid.

They are NOT going to disarm every American.

You are ALL playing THEIR game.

STOP.

THINK.

THINK SOME MORE.

And then go on about your business as usual.

So I know this guy, and he is married to an Oriental, right.

And she refuses to let anyone (including him) wear shoes inside their house.

And he has boots, I mean big @ss black old fashioned military boots. Made of leather.

So I see him wearing these boots in a resturant (informal place, where this type of footwear would go unoticed).

And I notice the boots have a weird shine to them. Not so much of shine as a sheen.

So I ask him "what's on your boots? Shoe polish?"

and he replies, "No--Bear Grease".

With that, he walks away and goes outside.

How odd?

I didn't know bears were even the least bit greasy,

and where would one get the grease from a bear anyway.

It's not like they sell it at WalMart or SafeCo.

So, anyway, the guy is like a real high up military Marxman, sharpshooter guy--retired.

Re: Gun fanatics: Rod Serling and the people on Maple Street have a message for you . . .

"With an eye made quiet by the power of harmony and the deep power of joy, we see into the life of things." William Wordsworth

And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe—the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.

John F. Kennedy Inaugural Address

Lincoln's economic advisor Henry C. Carey explained the universal issue in his 1851 Harmony of Interests:

"Two systems are before the world.... One looks to pauperism, ignorance, depopulation, and barbarism; the other to increasing wealth, comfort, intelligence, combination of action, and civilization. One looks towards universal war; the other towards universal peace. One is the English system; the other ... the American system, for ... elevating while equalizing the condition of man throughout the world."

I thought it was rather childish, using as plot devices various tired hollywood stereotypes and situations.


The strangers as objects of suspicion

the pulling of the gun
the build up for mob action
the mob action ending in burning the house

And the absurd ending, even more absurd than the show itself

How anyone can confuse this for anything even remotely approaching reality in our present or any circumstances is sad.

Hollywood has done tremendous damage to the ability to think. Or it could be that lack of experience might cause some one to take this seriously.

Uh, there is only ONE way to interpret it.

The aliens in the original conducted an experiment to see how humans would react to a mere suggestion or implied situation - and the humans showed them.

Same in the remake, only gov.

It is EXACTLY what they are doing NOW with the gun debate.

They planted the seeds and you're all off and running like hysterical chicken littles - the sky is falling! the sky is falling! they're gonnna take our guns! . . . and TPTB are sitting back, taking notes.

aw shucks, I must be.

why won't you address the stolen weapon issue I raised.

Don runs up, shotgun in hand. Steve yanks it from Don's hands, then, later on, Charlie steals it from Steve before shooting Pete.

if Don had maintained control of his weapon, and not allowed it to be taken from him by Steve, the shooting may not have happened at all.

the message? don't allow anyone, including self-proclaimed authority figures, to take your weapon or it may fall into the wrong hands and be used for nefarious purposes.

So that is your answer? You want them to be passive.

You offer only speculation as to it being an experiment, and when you say they will never take the guns, you say it like you know it is a fact. Have you ever heard of the Normalcy Bias? Sometimes it helps to be aware and open to possibilities that you might think would never happen.
