Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Joe Biden says the Constitution doesn’t guarantee the right of Every American to own a gun. He is correct. I agree with him. There you go: we have bi-partisan agreement that the Second Amendment does not guarantee every person the right to own a firearm.
Of course we agree – as far as it goes. Conservatives think only sane law-abiding adults should own guns. Liberals think only government agents should own guns. So we agree in principle that there are limitations. But as always, the devil is in the details. And that’s where Democrats continue to do their endless lying.
If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. True, if he agrees to work for a nickel a day. Oh, he won’t? Well, then I guess you’ll have to switch doctors. But that’s your doctor’s choice, we didn’t mandate the change, so it’s not our fault that you couldn’t keep your doctor.
A person who beats and abuses his wife shouldn’t own a gun. Well – “beats,” sure, physical violence, we agrfee. “Abuses,” what does that mean? “He cut up my credit cards because I spent us into bankruptcy, which left me unable to self-medicate my mental illness with shopping therapy, which made me feel bad, which is mental abuse.” So that person isn’t allowed to own? Which one, the abuser or the nutcase.
Democrats desire to be Procrustes, forcing equal outcomes for everyone, but they know the public doesn’t want to fit the bed. So Democrats resort to endless, endless lies. Just tiresome.
This isn’t news to anyone that’s been following the gun “debate” for the past couple decades.
Getting the entire rest of the population to figure it out is the hard part.
