Sorry to sound tinny, but I'm pretty convinced that this sudden, intense push for gun control is directly related to the fiscal issues facing this Nation. They don't want an armed citizenry when the SHTF. This may be government recognition that we have passed the event horizon. - MdmAnd to add to the tinfoil, it also helps explain the massive quantities of ammo purchased by various Federal departments recently. Go read the original piece and all the other comments to it. Some are really excellent.
But that wasn't the QotD. This is, from a comment at Rachel's:
Attestations by liberals and leftists of what it is they desire bear no resemblance to what they're after.
Obamacare has nothing to do with health; cap and trade has nothing to do with global warming; anti-gun laws have nothing to do with saving lives; free schooling has nothing to do with education; universal suffrage has nothing to do with governance.
What is it they're after? What all –isms are after – acceptance, compliance, concession, cooperation, and submission; Utopia.
Utopia: if it saves but one life it's worth the death of millions. -- George Pal
