Science and facts dont stand a chance against myth and ideology:
Justice Department researchers have concluded that an assault weapons ban is “unlikely to have an effect on gun violence,” but President Obama has not accepted their report as his administration’s official position.
It doesn’t fit the narrative. And, obliquely, it recognizes that the part of gun control that matters to the liberal fascist Obama administration is the control, not the guns.
There’s a reason for the desire for this ban. It’s a foot in the door. And, once they declare it’s not enough, the precedent is already set. As I mentioned on the podcast, the left is into incrementalism. They will incrementally sneak up on every freedom we have left.
Will sneak up? That’s what they have been doing (and, over time, quite effectively so) for the past hundred years.
And while the slowly-boiled frog squeaks in anger and pain every once in a while, most of that amphibian is cooked about medium well these days.
