Cops in North Carolina held a “Turn In Your Guns” event and netted 1 BB gun and 1 knife. Oh, they also got a thousand pledges not to be violent from people who were probably not inclined to be violent anyway.
At the other end of the country, the next Governor of California, the lecherous creep Gavin Newsom, said something that is awesome in its pure stupidness. In the event of a mass shooting or a terrorist attack, it’s better if the victims are disarmed, because someone might get hurt if they start shooting back at the terrorists. I am not making this up.
The Democrats are also distributing a phony talking point that the NRA wants to arm terrorists. This is patently stupid and false. What the Democrats are calling for is to premptively deny civil rights to people based on Government profiling. The NRA opposes this. Also, remember, a lot of Leftist Democrats would like to label the NRA a “Terrorist Organization.” You could make, I would bet, an interesting Venn diagram of Democrats who say the NRA is a terrorist organization and Democrats who wouldn’t give the same label to Hamas or Hezbollah, with Obama being in the middle of that intersection.
A big reason we don’t trust that the antigun left when they say “We only want a few reasonable gun restrictions” is because they lie about everything else, why would they not be lying about their true intent?
