https://www.blacklistednews.com/article/76215/gun-seizures-could-lead-to-civil.html“We’re not taking anyone’s legal guns, we’re just changing the law so the guns are illegal
and then we will take them.”
But that doesn’t matter to politicians who are crusading against guns the way Temperance
activists crusaded for Prohibition a hundred years ago.
Assault-weapons laws resemble hate-speech laws.
Hate-speech laws usually begin by targeting a few words that almost no one approves of.
Once the system for controlling and punishing “hate speech” is put into place, there is little
or nothing to stop it from expanding to punish more and more types of everyday speech.
Similarly, once an assault-weapons law is on the books, there is little to prevent politicians
from vastly increasing the number of weapons banned under the law.
