What they are actually meant to accomplish. They will keep those like his law-abiding mother from getting, owning, and carrying guns... which means it will keep all of us from getting, owning, and carrying guns.
P.S. It is only criminals and tyrants who flourish in the gun-free zones...
And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward. ― Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn
We already have mandatory waiting periods, background checks and registration. While we can still purchase guns and ammunition for the time being, we are in severe danger of becoming Hungary in 1956. You see, as an iron curtain nation, Hungary was already under the control of the USSR. Their guns were fully registered in order to be legal.
But, post-war Hungary chafed under the rule of the Soviets and kept trying to circumvent their rules. So, one week in 1957, all of the guns were confiscated by government troops going house-to-house using gun registration information. The following week, Soviet tanks rolled across the border as the USSR clamped down on their iron curtain satellite.
These pieces are already in place here. All we lack are the government troops (remember Obama wanting to certify the military to conduct arrests of American citizens on American soil?) knocking at your door and confiscating your guns. With zero and his nanny-state sycophants demanding tighter gun control laws, there isn't much of the Second Amendment left for them to circumvent.
We have already reached the America Ayn Rand described at the end of Atlas Shrugged. There's no Galt's Gulch, but everything else is here. It isn't much of a stretch to envision zero deciding to strike down the Second Amendment with an EO. The Christmas recess is approaching and this plays perfectly into his hands. After all . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . he won!
