WHAT WITH ALL THE who-struck-John about the gun control conversation, with people seeking to restrict your liberty because — doncha know — you’re a child, with impulse control issues, and can’t be trusted with dangerous tools or sharp implements.
Has to be about that, because, as has been conclusively demonstrated long ago, there isn’t anything you can do with laws restricting supply or access that will lessen gun violence because, you see, criminals don’t obey laws. The only benefit to be derived from the attempt is to enhance the ability of the state to know who has guns for the purpose of rounding them up and shipping them off to the camps.
And, no, that’s NOT over-the-top. Not when we have an example in-hand within living memory. No.
