"It’s an interesting – and revelatory – psychological disconnect. The elites – the Chuck Schumers, the BHOs, the Clintons, et al
– love to talk up what they dishonestly like to call gun control
(dishonestly, because they’re really talking about controlling people – and specifically, other people, not them). They’ll demand prior restraint of not just gun owners but would-be gun owners – on the theory that because some one of them might do something harmful with a gun, all of them must be restrained a priori:
Restricted by law from owning or possessing a gun, not because of
anything they have actually done with the gun – but because of something
they might – might! – do with a gun. And not even necessarily them.
It is sufficient that anyone – not you, just anyone – might do something."
