Holler if you’ve had this argument:
YOU: So that’s what I think.
THEM: Well, some people think that’s wrong.
YOU: You’re using “some” nameless people as your credibility? Name them!
THEM: (Chasing shiny object)
Senator Diane Feinstein – who was for gun control back when it was cool, and still is – gave an “inadvertent” slip this past week during a debate on “bump stocks” that pretty well spells out what gun control (AKA “Gun Safety”, “Gun Violence Prevention”) is actually about.
Preventing crime? Preventing murders? Curbing spectacular spree crimes?
“No, he passed background checks registering for handguns and other weapons on multiple occasions,” Feinstein told CBS’s “Face the Nation.”…“Regulations aren’t going to do it,” Feinstein said on the need for a law over an ATF rule. “We need a law. It can’t be changed by another president.”
So – banning guns, accessories and types doesn’t affect crime, or save a single life.
So why have it?
“America is a gun-happy country. And I think there are many of us in growing numbers that don’t want a gun-happy country,” said DiFi.
So it’s about controlling all those other people.
Of course, this isn’t a mystery to anyone who’s followed this issue; the real enemy, to Senator Feinswine, isn’t the criminal (whose activities foster the dependence, bureaucracy and authoritarianism that keeps her in power).
It’s you – the law-abiding gun owner. You are the enemy.
