Once upon a time, a left-leaning writer named Dan Baum convinced me to drop the term “gun grabbers” from my posts. Danny viewed “gun grabbers” an “assault noun” (my term, copyrighted). My self-imposed ban lasted about two weeks—until I realized that all the gun grabbers who claimed they weren’t gun grabbers were, indeed, gun grabbers. Regular readers will know that I’ve since deployed that sobriquet for TTAG commentator and gun blogger MikeB302000 who claims he’s nothing of the sort—-despite having written that he’d kinda prefer a ban on civilian firearms. Only that was a slip of the tongue. Now, finally, MikeB302000 has blogged his “official goal” for gun control . . .
Extremely strict gun control laws enforced nationally which would disqualify about half the present gun owners. Since that half, although legal under today’s rules, is responsible for much of the trouble including gun flow into the criminal world, the results would be tremendous.
I know, right? Let’s have a little look see at MikeB’s platform of strict gun control laws. And yes, James, he really should quantify the “tremendous” results that would follow the implementation of his gun control program.
As the Brits are wont to say, you’d be lucky mate. Or as my old nemesis Peter DeLorenzo might have said (who remembers?), look for that information at itaintgonnahappen.com. Still, we waited almost two years for this. Who knows what we may learn in another two years? I’d say the mind boggles, but it doesn’t, really.
