In the video below, we learn that Boston hospitals are “pooling” $17k to fund a bit of security theater commonly called a “gun buyback.” I’m not saying that diverting money from patient care to buying broken-ass guns is the height of insanity, but it’s certainly stratospherically dumb. The thing that sticks in my craw: Massachusetts is the birthplace of the American Revolution. You know . . .
the war to overthrow British colonial rule, so that Americans could exercise their God-given/natural freedoms without government interference.
To see Bay State government officials calling for civilian disarmament — encouraging criminals to sell firearms that might have been traced to a crime, or steal firearms to pawn without fear — is to wonder how a people can go from proud patriots to pathetic pushovers.
As culture eats strategy for lunch, is there any hope that Massachusetts residents will ever recover their gun rights? And if not them, what are the chances for Californians, Hawaiians, Marylanders, New Yorkers and the rest of state residents denied their firearms freedom?
