Gun control advocates really do not understand the fire they are playing with, with much of what is being proposed. How many millions of Americans are you prepared to imprison? How many are you prepared to kill? What is the count of ruined lives, broken families, and ruin are you willing to inflict to try to achieve your rainbow farting unicorn utopia where every gun turns into a flower? Widespread disrespect for the law by millions of Americans is not going to bring that about, and in fact, may only serve to create larger unregulated markets, and far more willingness to engage in law breaking people would not be willing to engage in under normal circumstances.

Gun Control Requires Our Willing Compliance
[Another way to look at this is that people generally "play by the rules" as long as the rules are reasonable and the other side plays by the rules as well.
If the rules are unreasonable and/or the other side does not play by the rules people get angry and have a strong tendency to ignore the rules. They “play” rough and play to win by any means possible. The new New York State "rules" for gun owners are completely unreasonable. They were pushed through without input from those most affected and are a gross violation of the Second Amendment "rule".
The other side in this political contest shouldn't push us so far that we decide to play to win by any means possible. They wouldn't like us when we get angry.—Joe]
