Or Refuse to get it. Chris Mathews:
The mood of the “Guns Over People” party is increasingly to vote for guns. Vote for war. Vote against people.
Why? I cannot figure. To paraphrase an old saying: “Guns don’t vote; people do.”
I have a feeling that there are more Americans with strong feelings about those first graders up in Connecticut than they do for the wild bunch out there worried about the “black helicopters” sweeping down on their front lawns.
We’ve seen the horror of crazed killers with semi-automatic weapons armed with big capacity clips. Still haven’t caught sight of those darn helicopters.
First up, guns are totally inanimate objects, but they’re important to people because people use guns to protect their lives and their liberty.
We haven’t seen the “Black Helicopters” yet because A) We still have our guns firmly in our hands, and B) Helicopters are impractical for door-to-door confiscation (duh). Its more like “Black SWAT APCs” is my concern.
Still EVERYBODY who’s talking about banning guns is talking about some form of confiscation. Grandfathering with zero transfer, So they’ll take your guns and magazines after you die, and nobody else will ever have them, or mandatory buy-backs, where they’ll give you some cash as they confiscate your guns, as if that has any meaning, or simply straight up confiscation.
Sorry, we haven’t seen the black SWAT APCs yet, but they’re gassing them up.
