In the final days of the 114th Congress, while most members were looking to end the last session of the Obama era, Congressman Thomas Massie, R-Ky. (A, 94%) was looking toward the 115th Congress, the Trump presidency, and the need for a knowledgeable voice on Second Amendment concerns. Rep. Massie revived the Second Amendment Caucus, which had been spearheaded by former Georgia Rep. Paul Broun but had atrophied in Broun’s absence the past two years. Massie sat down with Conservative Review to talk about the importance of the Second Amendment Caucus, what its legislative priorities are, and the importance of gun rights to the American identity. Below is a transcript of his interview with Conservative Review, edited for length and clarity.

    Free advice: if you know someone who was raped, it's kind of a jerk move to tell them "well you shouldn't have gotten involved with a future rapist...duh!" I can't fathom the disdain you hold for women who've been raped within marriage, to presume that there was no change in behavior, that the woman should have seen the signs but (through failing to interview him well enough first I guess) was too dumb to see those signs. I can assure you, however, that fear of that kind of disdain does affect reporting rates. It kills. Just as common sense and foolproof would be for rapists not to rape. It's just as realistic a request. Don't worry though. This is RPFs, so it is more popular to view the women into!ved as idiots, the guys as oppressed, and the claims as disingenuous. I could say "I pray this doesn't happen to you or yours," but your point of view is the false confidence that it can't. I don't think I'll be back for awhile.

    Then maybe your skepticism is more insulting than you intend on this one. It happens, which is what my point was about proposing avoiding premarital sex as part of a catch-all solution. In fact, it might be more of an issue since you're less likely to know what your new spouse likes in bed until you're locked in matrimony. Moreover, there's appetite and then there's APPETITE. I agree about the new book, and that goes both ways. The thing is, sometimes the book is swapped on you when you're unable to do anything about it. When you're left lying there trying to figure out how the hell it all happened, staunching up the blood, and rushing to get the laundry started, it's not that helpful to reflect that you might've been on a different page. Anyway, I'll leave the guys to discuss rape and how women love to cry wolf about it. I'm honestly tired of hearing about it for the past couple of decades for some reason.

    Actual, violent rape does happen within marriages. I'm not talking about the twisted nonsense being characterized as rape these days. I'm not talking about waking someone up with kisses and touches. I'm talking about a woman just having given birth and still healing from stitches being told she doesn't get to say no. I'm talking about someone who has simply had too long a day to deal with the elaborate fantasies her husband demands, begging off and saying no, and having that choice forcibly taken away. The standard of proof remains the same. There is no "pass" once there's a ring on the finger; the wife doesn't become your private sex doll and lose the right to consent. I wonder if you'd feel the same way if the wife in the scenario decided, since they're married, she could tie him up and use a strap-on on the husband against his will? Nope. Rape. And I hope she goes to jail for it.

    Personally, sometimes the official story has been true, and sometimes not. The truth seems to be somewhere in between. Claiming this was some kind of record was idiotic; there's no way to prove it. I do get the sense that viewership numbers are higher than reported (they are reporting numbers of people who watched on television, but almost everyone I know streamed it at work). There is also the matter of when the "empty white tarp" photos were taken. It should be an easy matter to review the images from the Washington Monument and find the point at which the most people are packed in there. The parade stands being empty looked awful, and it was largely due to people not showing, but also partly due to it getting dark and it having been cool and rainy all day. Do you want to sit in a wet chair once it's dark to watch some marching bands? Me neither. Especially with the prospect of 2-3 hours to get food and get to the hotel afterwards. That should have been planned for. The ceremonial signing of Executive Orders, with all the idiotic talk of pens, could have waited. The tea and luncheons and other bullshit could have been shorter. It was fixable. None of that, however, makes that press conference look any better. Record viewership? Can't be proven, and in the absence of proof, they are NOT going to get the benefit of the doubt.

    That can prevent a lot, but definitely not all. I still believe a significant amount of rape happens within marriage, but once you're there, there's a lot less you can do to get out of the situation easily, especially if there are kids involved. Some of those women will also tell you they are obeying God by keeping their marriage together. So while I agree that it's a definite good start, it would be dangerous to paint it as "a solution to all these problems."

    You'll want to refresh that repeatedly. We're good here, but to the south it's lit up like a Christmas tree. Even a few miles south (at work, etc.) things were nasty. Tornado warnings in effect for Orange, Seminole, Lake, and Volusia Counties. Looks like Marion is done. Basically things are sweeping along the eastern side of Central Florida. There is a nasty cell right near the Orlando area attractions. There are now a couple of tails to this swinging through the area, and a number of reports of damage (unconfirmed levels due to the darkness). Tampa looks like the first tail fell apart before much happened, but the second one is looking very red and compact on the radar.

    Yeah... I have no idea why I didn't want to elaborate earlier. Thank goodness that no one dug back and pulled a few anecdotes out of their rear ends in their hurry to... agree... with me. I'm assuming you're agreeing with me, since my entire point is that if there IS discrimination, the solution is NOT Government. Of course that would mean that you only felt like being a spiteful jackass. Ah, that part of RPFs which believes divorces are only sought or caused by women, that deaths on the job constitute gender bias (but yet that gender also consistently talks about the virtues of the good old days where men worked and women stayed at home), and that sexual assault is usually just a boogeyman made up by women to get out of being ashamed of things. It'll be the last part to die, sadly. The very last.

    Erm, all low-pressure systems do that up 'round these parts :p * * * Wind is insane (sustained @ 25 with higher gusts even away from the bad parts of the system), already some trees down. We expect much less of an impact than GA, AL, MS, and LA, but it's still going to be sporadically dangerous. The main line (from my perspective) will be here within the hour. It's that tail hanging down from the picture he posted. That means it won't be bad for too long (good thing) but it also contains some really nasty wind and rain and likely hail (bad thing). Then there's another part expected to build and hit around midnight. Your timelines may vary.

    In some of those cases, it's easily solved by being cleaner. I see people taking their damned phones into the bathroom all the time (and even talking on them while in there), and purses hang on the little hook in the stall. That stall is not far from the toilet, which turns everything in the bowl into a mist that settles on that door. The desk almost never gets wiped down, even though people eat at it, drink at it, and in at least one case I witnessed change a dirty diaper on it. You don't have to be obsessive about it, but wiping down the desk area, not eating or doing other gross things at your desk, and generally using a little common sense... well I guess I'm asking too much.
