Yes, the leftists are all very much for banning firearms. There are far more law abiding firearm owners than all the gangsters and criminally insane combined.
Disarm the masses, and then ugly evil power will follow. The left is watering at the mouth for it.
1. Make sure it looks "legal".
2.Use another "crisis" to impose registration.
3.Next opportunity, confiscate the "scary looking guns" on a limited scale.
4.Without warning, sweep in and get the rest...just pull the bandaid off quick!
5.Calm the sheep by arming corrupt collaborators in every community to "protect the people".
I could go on and on...it has happened many times before, do you really beleive it can't happen here if we sit idle and allow it?
