Hat-tip William Quick of Daily Pundit:
Fred Reed of Fred on Everything is noticing our nation, government, and society coming apart at the seams:
“What is going to kill us is diversity. It isn’t working well. By diversity I mean here the intermixing of large groups of people holding utterly differing and opposed values. There is too damned much diversity in America. It isn’t getting better.”
“The current donnybrook over guns is not a political question, like whether to raise or lower taxes. It is a clash of civilizations, a confrontation between two groups who seriously don’t like each other and hold irreconcilably different views of life. The two would be happier in separate countries, an idea that has occurred to them. It is that bad.”
“The Constitution no longer being in effect, the gun-controllers may be able to outlaw guns, chiefly because the federal government also wants to do this, though for different reasons. The gun-controllers think that they are going to stop murder, whereas the feds just want a supine and helpless population. Should they succeed in banning firearms, the result will be a very large element of the population actually hating the rest, and hating the government. Diversity.”

Hating those people if they neuter the second amendment? Oh, trust us when we say it’s far, far far FAR beyond HATING if they are successful Mr. Reed.
We HATE plenty of people. For example – Jug-ears, his Hoggish wife, Hildabeast, Chucky Schmucky Schumer, and that blithering drunk idiot Pluggs. Those folks we HATE. But just because we HATE them does not mean we’re willing to shoot them.
Now… if the vomit-piles going after America’s weapons are successful… well… the “mood” of many people in this nation will cross the Rubicon – surpassing simple impotent “hatred.” The line separating “Hate with all of one’s being” and “Obligated to make someone dead” is maintained by valuing human life. To exceed hatred – to go from loathing to cold, mechanical “Kill-bot mode” requires something WORSE than hate.
It needs Apathy.
One must surrender their value of human life. As most reasoning adults know, the opposite of “love” is not “hatred” – it’s not caring at all.
Part of America seeks to trespass so egregiously on the natural rights of their fellows that the victims are pushed beyond disgust. When that journey is complete – when the value of the aggressor’s lives reach a number less than, or equal to zero – there will be nothing stopping the aggrieved from putting down their tormentors, and sleeping like lambs afterwards.
In closing Mr. Reed asks:
“How long can a nation of pickpockets, beggars, and con-men steal from each other before the whole shebang falls down? We are about to find out. Diversity is our strength. Yes indeed. ”

To answer your question:
A lot longer than you’d think, a hell of a lot longer than we deserve, but not nearly long enough for our tastes sir. Don’t get us wrong… we have our comeuppance coming at this point. We just ain’t all that excited about the shit that tends to happen after the Federal Government meets it’s well deserved end. Not a real swell place to watch your Grand-critters grow up.
Ask the Bosnians.
