Can anyone else think of another example of an official announcing a harmful financial policy while simultaneously touting statistics that show that policy will be ineffective.
Well, Joe, I’m a gun owner. So I’m accustomed to decades of harmful financial, criminal, and social policies that by design are ineffective at their alleged purpose.
Maybe we could just force honest people to be photographed, fingerprinted, and investigated before we grudgingly allow them to exercise a constitutionally “protected” right. Of course, we can only do that to the honest people because the Haynes decision means criminals don’t have to jump through all of those hoops.
Oh, wait! Let’s get banks and credit card companies to deny service to firearm dealers and gun owners. Because everyone knows that crooks swapping weapons in the black market carefully document their financial paper trails.
So yeah. Been there, done that. Doing that, in fact. Long before the Chinese flu.
