My reply to Sen. McCaskill’s reply to my comment:
Thank you for replying to my previous note.
1. The issue is not gun violence or gun safety. The issue is all violence and all safety. Nobody’s last thought when they are being strangled by an unarmed assailant is, “At least I wasn’t shot.” More people are killed by unarmed assault in the US than by guns. Yet the record of countries (Australia, UK) and cities (Chicago, Washington, DC) show that restricting gun rights increases overall violence, including ironically, gun violence. How many people were shot in Chicago today? Obviously banning guns isn’t the answer, which makes one suspect that gun violence is not the problem.
2. We do not need to find middle ground. If the middle ground is always between where we are and where the Confiscators want to take us, then the road will lead inexorably to the Confiscators’ victory. This is unacceptable. If current laws are inadequate, maybe it is because they are completely misguided and wrong to begin with. The issue is not the legal ownership of firearms. It is the presence of the twisted and deranged who desire to do evil to others. Try outlawing them.
3. The proof of the lie in Sen Feinstein’s gun bill is that it exempts the political class from its restrictions. If gun ownership is bad it is bad for all. Disarm the Capital Police and Secret Service and put “No Gun Zone” signs outside the Capital and White House. If politicians can protect themselves with machine guns and the citizenry cannot, then the issue is not about safety. It is about power.
Please reject Sen. Feinstein’s gun ban legislation. It is a dishonest attempt by the Confiscators to eliminate the 2nd Amendment one little step at a time.
