Why the Citadel: It isn't New York
An interaction with a well-known customer this afternoon shed some direct insight to the situation in New York City.
My customer is part of the 1%. Her son is about 2 years out of college, and lives in lower Manhattan, working in the finance industry. He's a typical suburbanite kid (yes, I am now of an age that I call 20-somethings "Kids"), meaning he has zero understanding of how the steak gets onto the styrofoam tray at the meat counter.
On Monday night he realized he may have made a mistake by remaining in the city, and called his mother here in the DC area. She told him to go buy food. He bought a box of cereal, a dozen eggs, and a gallon of milk. He lives with his girlfriend, a room mate and a dog.
The cereal and milk were gone Tuesday. They found an open pizza joint, and never thought to buy a few to go. They ended up walking 40 blocks uptown to find an open store for food. They decided that was a one-time walk. There were Predators about.
Mommy drove to New York and put them all in her very expensive SUV and brought them all (Son, girlfriend, room mate and dog) back to the McMansion in DC.
I ask you to consider all of the ramifications of this single story.
Then consider what happens when DC is powerless as well, and Mommy can't drive to NYC.
For those people who do not have the common sense to buy more than a box of cereal and eggs (which most people would prefer to cook prior to eating, and requires power and fuel to do so), when there is no lifeline, they will begin to lose the veneer of civility very quickly. Most will die, either of hunger, disease or violence.
There will never, ever, be such circumstances in the Citadel.
The Citadel requires the support of Patriots if it is to become reality.
November 6th, vote for Liberty. Vote for Common Sense. Buy a weapon from III Patriots who joined forces and took a leap of faith, and began III Arms Company. Please tell your friends and family that the 6th is a day to show support for our Founding Ideals. Please ask them to consider buying their next 1911 or AR on Tuesday, from III Arms, at IIIArmsCompany.com.
III to III.
