The City of Highland Park, IL voted to ban “assault weapons”. We’ve been there before, and we’ll be there again. But what doesn’t get as much play, are the true intentions of the gun control cabal. It’s not about “gun safety”…..if it were, they would be proposing gun safety education. And it’s not their tired canard of allegedly supporting ‘hunters and sportsmen’.
It’s about complete civilian disarmament, and the right of a citizen to defend oneself, irrespective of the State.
Speaking in favor of the ban on scary looking rifles, former Councilwoman and local columnist Sally Higginson publicized their true intentions:
“The argument that owning an assault weapon leads to greater security is specious. In fact, owning a weapon in order to use it for self-protection is not self-defense. It is vigilante law enforcement. That makes for entertaining movies and a terrifying reality.”
