As pointed out by Say Uncle we have the media and a prosecutor demonizing an ordinary revolver as an “assault handgun”:
Maryland Assistant Attorney General Clarence E. Goetz had recommended Vaisman serve five years in the Maryland Division of Correction.
Seized from Vaisman’s residence were a broad range of weapons including assault handguns. Among the weapons were at least one Colt Cobra and at least one Colt Diamondback.
Don’t think for a single nanosecond that the bigots will stop with “Saturday Night Specials”, “Assault Weapons”, or “50 caliber Sniper rifles”. They didn’t stop with short barreled shotguns or machine guns. The didn’t stop when convicted felons were prohibited from firearms possession. They didn’t stop when they prohibited mail order of firearms. They didn’t stop with the Brady Act or the assault weapon ban.
They won’t stop until WE stop them. They must be politically exterminated. The way we do that is to have the proper state of mind when we advocate for gun owner rights. We have to make membership in organizations like the VPC, the Brady Bunch, and The Gun Guys look like membership in the KKK–because it is.
