Sure, we ain't stuck in WW-II, but that don't make this bullshit any easier to live with. Suggest something like, oh, say, universal background checks, bans on umpteen shot clips, or regulating some random (but not insignifcant) definition of "Assault Weapon", and the completely over the top response from the RKBA/NRA wannabe crowd is all too predictable. "You can't do that, you can't piecemael this shit because, unless you have a true solution, "The Magic Bullet", you ain't allowed to take even target practice at this problem." I mean, it's either all or nothing, right?
So then go with their lead, roll with their flow, but things, from their perspective, only go down hill from there if we do. Hey, RKBA, I got the solution right here. If it really has to be all or nothing, why don't we go for all? Why don't we get rid of all of your little "shoot-em-up" fantasies? Why don't we just kill your whole ability to play with any of your little gun toys? Why don't we just ban the whole mess, and get on with creating the next version of safe and sane civilization?
"You can't do that, because that would be, like, facisim, or nazism, or communism, or maybe even something more horrible than all three of them put together" (and argued with a completely straight face, even though all of the rest of civilization also does something along these lines).
So, then, NRA types, let me ask you. Which is it?
