My Great Good Friends,
As anyone with a knowledge small arms knows, the national gun debate is a joke. As you may have heard me explaining to Laura Ingraham; a magazine capacity limit can be thwarted by a roll of electrician tape, let alone a plastic Mag Pul coupler which reduces to less than a second the differential to expending a larger capacity clip. Similar logic holes may be illustrated for every element of the anti-gun proposals.
Assuming the political proponents of these panaceas are not stupid, it begs the question of their motivation: Confiscation conspiracy? I doubt it. Ignorance? Quite possibly, given their rant against scary black ‘assault rifles’ while ignoring the more benign looking hunting configurations with the exact same functional components. Political opportunism? Sounds about right.
A political opportunism which illuminates the most amazing hypocrisies.
Here is my favorite (so far); On April 27th 1995 Senator Dianne Feinstein testifying in an open session (i.e., televised on CSPAN) of the Senate Judiciary Committee explaining how, when she felt threatened by the New World Liberation Front, she applied for and received a concealed carry permit, completed a firearms training course and armed herself saying; ” I made the determination that if someone was going to try to take me out I was going to take them with me.”
For those of us who do not have the Capital Police protecting us at work, or State Troopers protecting us at home, I say Amen Senator.
