LA Times Columnist Robin Abcarian is delighted that Marine Sergeant Andrew Tahmoressi was arrested and thrown into a Mexican prison after inadvertently turning into Mexico. After all, he owned guns, and that means he was probably planning a mass shooting, as everyone who owns a gun is prone to doing (as the progressives see it).
Ms Abcarian has inadvertently provided a bit of service by showing us what the left’s real gun agenda is.
What they say: “We only want common sense gun control to keep guns away from people who are potential mass shooters.”
What they don’t tell you: “We think anyone who owns a gun is a potential mass shooter.”
Toward that end, Second-Amendment-Hating Senator Dianne “Turn ‘Em In, Mr. and Mrs. America” Feinstein has proposed a bill that would allow the police to confiscate anyone’s guns if someone files a complaint alleging that they are in danger of harming themselves or others. The gun-owner would have to go to court and prove they aren’t a threat in order to get their guns back… a process that could take months or years or never as long as liberals are running the courts.
The proposed law is ripe for abuse. Any anti-gun organization could file nuisance complaints against any gun owner, have their guns taken away, and subject them to a lengthy and expensive legal process to get them back. We know from experience the law would be abused in precisely this way.
