Trying to nail down an anti-gunner on the question of confiscation is like trying to wrap your arms around a greased pig. They duck, dodge, weave and squirm so much you simply never get a straight answer out of them.
Most of us on this side of the question think that’s because the last thing they want is to divulge what they’re really after — total civilian disarmament. An Australian-style turn-in that will leave only criminals and victims of horrific boating accidents with the option of armed self defense. But saying that out loud, on camera, will make for useful electoral campaign fodder for the pro-2A side. Never mind that hearing the truth would scare the hell out of the voting public.
So the question is, what’s the point? As satisfying as it may be to watch a skilled interviewer like Tucker Carlson try to pin down someone like Richard Goodstein — even if he MOPS THE FLOOR with him — why bother? Besides filling up a segment on cable news, it ultimately gets us nowhere. Lots of sound and fury signifying nothing. Which is why don’t bother to watch interviews like this any more. You?
