As if any of his cabinet could find the sum of 1+1 without paying for a clue.
(By the way, 1+1=4, for large values of 1 as 1 approaches 2.)
And 1*1 = 2, for very large values of 1, as well!
FWIW I can see the writing on the wall and I sold my AR-15 yesterday for about $150 more than what I had in it. I seriously doubt that there will be a “grandfather clause” in the new AWB. They will ban them all across the board and I figured that I might as well get my money out of it before it became “worthless.”
My bet? Within 1 year there will be major strikes across the country by the police for higher salaries and more cops on the street.
Obama will form an anti-crime task force who will recommend another layer of bueurocracy. This will turn into a National Police Force tasked with conviscating illegal weapons and weapons considered to be “assault rifles.” They will do this by requiring a national registry of gun owners and tapping into that.
First order of business will be to go after militias in this country. Followed by a direct political and media attack on the NRA and the Tea Party. This will be followed by additonal laws and executive orders requiring states to put in place buy back plans or lose federal funding.
You all laugh. If Republicans lose the house in 2014 and the senate goes to 60 Democrats, this is going to happen. Add to that a UN Mandate on handguns as well as the continued purge of our military leadership and this becomes a reality.
If I was a narcissistic, white hating, middle class hating Marxist with a race card and media to hide behind and very wealthy backers who are funding this, I would do this in a heartbeat.
