Saw thus very accurate meme in Facebook.
Only the dumbest among Gun Control fans is still talking about confiscation. The reality in the US is that with half a billion firearms and God knows how many billion rounds in the hands of civilians, confiscation is just a rapidly fading dream.
But laws against behavior are easy to pass and that goes double for jurisprudence affecting the legal battlefield: If they can’t get the gun, they will try to make its usage in self-defense a very costly proposition. If they make you think twice before committing to self defense, they win. If you die or get injured, well they told you before that guns are not a solution. If you happen to survive unscathed the attack of a “property re-distributor” and he does not, get ready to have your ass dragged through a legal field of broken glass.
And don’t take it personally: You are not being personally attacked, but used as example for the rest of the population that the State is the one with a Monopoly on Killing as they know better than you. And if crime skyrockets and you are afraid to walk outside your home, well, that was part of the plan: You cannot get political contrary if you are constantly afraid for your life. The government using common criminals as their surrogates for internal security forces is actually a very cost-effective way to keep the boot stamping your face.
It is working charmingly efficient in Venezuela.
