    Before anybody could ever talk about any kind of armed struggle we need to greatly increase our numbers organized around a class conscious project. That means of course rejecting neoliberal capitalism and forwarding the needs of working class people which is to say the forces of democracy. Don't get me wrong I'm not discouraging any radical action. Just saying you need the people before you get the guns.

I think Atrimus may have been advising the Left to arm themselves in self-defense against an armed assault by the Right. But I could easily be misinterpreting, and if so, my apologies.

I've come to a political view which, in some ways, is on your wavelength, LGDB. But I don't (yet) subscribe to the idea that all issues boil down to the class struggle. For example, how does the class struggle inform the debate around concealed carry of a firearm? Guns are owned and carried by poor people, middle class people, and rich people. If anything, since the poor and middle class outnumber the rich, I would think a Marxist would favor expanding the ownership and carrying of firearms. Do you in fact favor that?
