Once again, the more the Left Threatens to Ban Guns and infringe the Right of Self-Defense, the more opposition they stoke.

This is an example of a Progressive Left initiative being blunted by strong and consistent messaging. The majority of the public knows that “assault weapon” is a misleading rhetorical term used to scare people with no logical basis, and that banning “assault weapons” would have only a negligible impact on the ability of criminals to get their hands on them.
Those who oppose Open Borders and Unrestrained Growth and Government could learn a lot from how the Pro-Second Amendment, Pro-Human Right of Self-Defense turned this around on the left.
On a related note, a Democrat Governor whose state finances are still a mess after massive tax increases is wagging the dog by proposing to deny his citizens Due Process and the Right of Self-Defense.
