And fast, before the glow of post-Newtown outrage fades.
I’m certainly not against all gun legislation. But I am against meaningless and stupid laws that make meaningless and stupid distinctions, and my strong guess is that any laws pushed by this president and this Congress will be in that category. If I turn out to be wrong, I will be very pleasantly surprised.
What’s more, when I read articles by politicians and pundits on the left, I see this sort of thing as getting the camel’s nose in the door. The goal of many on the left is to escalate and widen gun control and ultimately to repeal or at the very least weaken the 2nd Amendment. If you don’t believe me, just start reading.
