We see and hear from the gun control proponents, constantly, that their latest idea for “not one more,” is the panacea for gun crime in the United States. Despite no real solutions for the societal problems where such firearm background checks exist. When one can even argue that such mandates are a precursor for even more draconian gun control laws. As the point of sale becomes a spring board for future add-on gun control legislation. Because apparently, the last mandate in question, was not restrictive enough to get the job done.
Regardless of what it is this time around, from micro-stamping technology that doesn’t exist, to a “roster of approved handguns” with its fictional safety. What we are constantly fed, for the most part, are lies based on emotion. A deception that gun control proponents hope you gloss over while you allow them to “do something.”
So it’s not really a surprise, when a gun prohibitionist’s public statements, are dissected and shown for what they are. As Charles C. W. Cooke, does to Mike Lupica of the New York Daily News, on his use of the term “automatic weapon.”
…anything that looks like a machine gun is assumed to be a machine gun – can only increase the chance of public support for restrictions on these weapons.

In Washington, I-594 promised increased safety from gun crime, and to “remove guns from the hands of domestic abusers.” It’s a good line but that’s mostly all it is. Proponents offered no discussion of the potential that it discourages or even prevents people from defending themselves. Should they be the intended victim of a violent crime and need a firearm.
Hunter education classes are likely impacted, because people don’t want to go to jail, for exercising their rights that were once legal. By the handling of firearms by students used for education.
The simple handing of guns between friends and family members trigger an illegal firearm transfer. A chargeable offence. And make no doubt, that the millions of dollars poured into the I-594 campaign, from billionaire donors such as Michael Bloomberg and Bill Gates, are what got it passed. I-594 was not a grass roots effort.
