The term “boogaloo” is shorthand. The longer version is “Civil War 2: Electric Boogaloo.” It’s an internet joke in the gun community, not because civil war is a joke, but because most everyone can sense it coming whether we want it or not. For some, they’re taking the stand that if it’s coming, they want to go ahead and get it over with. For others, they just pray they’re wrong and it never comes.
Regardless of what we want, though, we’re seeing some signals that have me more than a little worried.
For one thing, we’ve had months of “civil unrest,” which is a very polite way to say “rioting.” While much of that has been in Portland, thus away from the rest of the nation, not all of it has.
