Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
A frequent commentor asked: “What utility does a ghost gun have that a
serial numbered gun does not?”
It’s a question frequently asked by those in favor of “common sense” gun
To which I reply: “What utility does a Catholic have that an Anglican
does not? Why can’t we have common sense Catholic control?”
And, “What utility does conservative political speech have that liberal
political speech does not? Why can’t we have common sense speech control?”
To ask these questions is to reveal the fundamental disagreement between
my view of how government should operate and the questioner’s view,
between the Founders’ view and modern-day Democrats’ view.
How far we’ve strayed . . .
My other preferred answer: “I’m a citizen doing something I have a Constitutional and statutory right to do. The utility it has is giving people like you a big f*** you”.
