* As expected, even after asking the following question of me: “I’m extremely interested in the logical train of thought behind the positions of someone who supports the poll tax rhetoric.”….to which I obligingly answered, the proprietor of the misnomered anti-gun blog “commongunsense” has decided to not make my reply visible. So of course, I’ll just leave it here:
Intellectual cowardice. No surprise there. And they wonder why their submissive fealty to the State doesn’t get more legislative [not to mention advocacy group membership] traction.
I’ve been engaged in a [generally] respectful conversation with the opposing camp at “Commongunsense“, in which I’ve tried to have the gun control advocate explain not only their general support for “universal background checks”, but specifically…..how said law could/would be enforced. The opposing camp merely offered citation of the law and the penalties. And only that again, when pressed. He/she was utterly unable to explain how a transgression of a UBC law would be enforced.
My point in part: without the State knowing who owns which firearms, said State cannot truly enforce a law that requires private sellers to seek out and pay for a NICs check. So I’m left wondering why it is so important for some to support legislation that is nothing more than an honor system.
Most of you will understand where I was going with this. Since the gun control industry has publicly stated, on numerous occasions, that their strategy was incrementalism……we know full well, that a UBC among private transactions, is un-enforcable without a distinct component. Thus, when criminal shootings continue to occur…as criminals will always be able to obtain a firearm….the call will be for the only method to enforce a bad law….registration. The proprietor of “Commongunsense” likely knows this, and all but halted the conversation on this line. But we know better.
Since the gun control industry is composed largely of the left, I found it curious that the radical liberals of decades past, have thoroughly morphed into the very entity they were standing against…..totalitarian statism.
I began to start listing what the gun control industry appears to believe, based upon their statements and actions, to illustrate the obvious deficit of logic, but I’ve decided to make that it’s own post….as, quite obviously….said list would make this an enormous post.
