I have seen articles from several magazines that represented the view of the elites in D.C and other liberal enclaves, this one from the New Republic,
Ban guns. All guns.
Get rid of guns in homes, and on the streets, and, as much as possible, on
police. Not just because of San Bernardino, or whichever mass shooting may pop
up next, but also not not because of
those. Don’t sort the population into those who might do something evil or
foolish or self-destructive with a gun and those who surely will not. As if
this could be known—as if it could be assessed without massively violating civil liberties and stigmatizing the mentally ill. Ban guns! Not just gun violence. Not just
certain guns. Not just already-technically-illegal guns. All of them.
We have Dear Leader pushing a "Universal Background Check" according to the A.P, he is wanting to go around Congress according to his adviser Valarie Jarrod.
We have other magazines that represent the worldview of the elitist and their enablers like the New Yorker Cover...
We have the Democratic Front runner also espousing a very aggressive gun control platform..
I keep wondering how these elitist is going to persuade the average American to give up their guns? They gonna have the PoPo go bust down doors to get the guns.....all you gonna get is a bunch of dead citizens and dead police...and the average police officer ain't keen on kicking in doors. Now the weenies from the federal side of the house might be game...but the local law enforcement ain't going to have a lot of excitement. The feds would try it because it isn't their community...and they want to keep their benefits and paychecks..but they would have to get the support of the local PoPo....
I am disturbed that the democrats really believe that they can force gun control on the populace. There are a lot of gun owners that will not hand them over...and I am not sure that the government knows exactly what they are in for..If memory serves...There are something like 300 million firearms here in the United States and most people ain't going to just hand them over.....it will be ugly fast. I find it ironic that the people that espouse gun control want somebody else to go physically take the guns away from the citizens. The people that are pushing this to support their nanny state big government agenda will not lead the stack into somebody's house in the middle of the night...they will be behind their keyboard and living in their guarded enclaves that insulate them from the results of their actions and we the people in "flyover country" will have to deal with the crime and other actions. The liberals especially the limousine variety like the idea of the unwashed masses being totally subservient to their "betters" whom thanks to the knowledge imparted by their professors in
their Ivory towers in their Ivy League colleges that havn't worked a real job in their life and have no idea how the world actually works, just what they believe would work if the right people are in charge.
There is a growing disconnect with the people who are in charge, there is an undercurrent of anger and frustration and I am afraid that it will boil over and it will get ugly fast, we have the people in D.C doubling down in stupid and actually pushing for a confrontation....they believe that the power of the state is superior to all and that a people need to do what they are told. This is Anathema to a free people and it will force a fight for the direction of the United State...If we will remain a free nation or continue the slide toward socialism and the chains of slavery where all we are is a resource to be used by the state and discarded when we have no value and the dream that was the United States will be in the dustbin of history.
