…We’ve seen this before. Activists stampeded the Gun Control Act of 1968 through Congress after a series of political assassinations. Advertised as their full and final demand, it was in fact a mere tactic in a string of Hegelian maneuvers. Similar stampedes got us the Patriot Act after 9/11 and the bailouts. Again, as in 1968, anti-gun partisans ask us to believe fear and outrage is a sufficient argument for whatever restrictions they care to imagine. And once more they’re throwing feces and calling their own tantrum a “tipping point” and a “watershed”. Whether the will of the people will be set aside again remains to be seen…. via ol remus and the woodpile report.
