Besides the entertainment value of keeping a trained monkey like Dollar Bill on these pages and watching him perform tricks at the command of his masters, he also provides a clear view of those same masters’ game. When DB and the swarm insist that “no one is talking about confiscation of guns”, the proper response is, “why not?” The ideal world in DB Land is one without guns, so why would he stop with laws that merely harass gun owners rather than allow his blue helmet crowd to march into homes and seize them (a goal admitted by many lawmakers in their unguarded moments, like this one)? Because, just like another of the Democrat’s solutions for creating Eden in America, single payer medicine, they lack the political power to get it, for now.
As ObamaKare fails, look for them to insist that we “move on” to the next step. When gun laws affecting law abiding citizens fail to stop violence by criminals, do you have any doubt that “the next step” will be further restrictions? And still further, until there are no guns left in the hands of private citizens?
So when they deny that their newest batch of laws are intended to lead to the confiscation of your guns, ask why not? Why is the party of no restraint stopping short of what it wants?
By the way, hunting rifles? Democrats oppose hunting, too.
