As I was listening to Presbo blather on about gun control and why we need an airtight national background check system for all gun sales and transfers, the thought occurred to me.
If someone is so dangerous that we don’t want them to have a gun, and we know his name, why the f*ck are we letting him roam the streets?
The background check is effective only in direct relationship to how the criminal justice system is Ineffective. Likewise for people who are insane. If we know they are insane and are dangerous, why are we letting them go shopping for handbags, let alone guns, knives, gardening tools and cars?
The rate of violent crimes in the country has been dropping dramatically for the past twenty years because we are locking criminals away and not letting them out until they are old men.
But who am I kidding? Gun control isn’t about reducing crime or saving lives. It is about what it has ALWAYS been about. It is about keeping the peasants in line. Only the Samurai can have weapons. Only the king and his vassals. Only the politburo and the People’s Army and police forces that do their bidding. Only the Stassi.
Fundamentally transform America, Indeed.
