Apparently, the survalist/prepper/threeper/SNBI/idiot section of the gunternet is losing their mind over the currently imaginary Amazon drones, because Big Brother/Illuminati or whatever. Then there are the people making jokes about how they’re going to shoot the drones down and take the packages, because apparently it’s funny to make jokes about destroying private property and stealing people’s stuff. Okay then.
We shall start this post by addressing the second group first: stop joking about shooting down Amazon drones, assholes. Seriously, think about what you’re saying for just half a second. What you’re saying is that you’d vandalize someone else’s property and steal someone else’s stuff because why, it’s fun? Way to play exactly into the negative stereotype of trigger happy white trash that the Brady Campaign wants to portray you as. Seriously, if you’re joking about shooting down Amazon drones and stealing their packages, you’re being an assclown and you should stop.
Now to address the group pictured above at their annual convention, the Threepers/SNBI guys. What exactly is so scary about Amazon using little flying robots to deliver packagages? How is that less scary than a stranger in a truck full of god knows what just showing up at your front door? Honestly, listen to yourselves. This is why no one takes you seriously.
Finally, I’d like to address Amazon. Most of us gun nuts like you guys just fine. I’m sorry that some people are jerks. I for one would totally love to have a little flying robot drop off packages of coffee or Safariland Speedloaders to my front door. That would be totally cool, and would be part of the whole “living in the future” thing that I’ve rather come to enjoy. Please make this happen. Also, if you could work on the flying cars and the hoverboards I was promised, that would be rad.
