OK, he didn’t say that. The co-author of the “expanded background checks” gun control bill that died on the Senate floor actually said “We’re still working. I’m still working. I’m talking to senators every day. I’m at 50/50 to where we can pick up five more members. I think we can.” With American gun owners up in arms about State-sponsored civilian disarmament, with the United Nation Small Arms Treaty heading down the proverbial pike for a presidential pen stroke, there’s only one way Uncle Sam’s going to pass a new federal gun control regulation: if someone somewhere commits an armed atrocity of a particular sort. Although the Santa Monica shooter “planned to kill hundreds,” he didn’t. So, not that. I hesitate to decribe what kind of slaughter would re-enable the federal jackboot. Suffice it to say, the gun grabbers are ready to pounce. As should The People of the Gun (in a non-violent sort of way). ‘Cause it ain’t over until the bloody shirt stops waving. And that’s never going to happen.
