Any excuse will serve a tyrant.
[It is also true that any excuse will serve those that enable tyrants. Here are some of the many I have come across:
- It’s for the children.
- No one needs one of those.
- It’s an ASSAULT weapon!
- It’s a collective, not an individual, right.
- The Brady Act works. It has blocked XX million gun sales. (Never mind that no measurable increase in safety has occurred. The mere fact that sales have been blocked is proof of success.)
- Road rage will become gun fights.
- Assault clips can hold 30, 50, or even 100 rounds!
- 32 rounds in just 16 seconds!
- States and cities should be allowed to make their own laws.
- The Federal government must do it because many states have lax laws.
It’s interesting how there are truths which appear to be universal yet people never learn.—Joe]
