How many times have soldiers said "we'll be home by Christmas"? You can count on this gun grabbing and overreaching by the left to be long and protracted to a breaking point. And what comes after will be long and protracted.
Before and during the Revolutionary War, the “Crown” had become terribly abusive to the colonists; seemingly not even deeming them to be human beings much less citizens. I guess it’s true we can’t know who’s capable of what sorts of excesses that strain the human being’s capacity to endure it. So, there’s no way to predict anything; am just hoping they’ll stay “bizzy” with “bizzy work” enough so that their time flies and they don’t become bored.
