The Unintended Consequence of California’s Gun-Control Laws
[As near as I can tell the anti-gun people are either blissfully ignorant this has been happening, clueless of what this means, and/or clueless of how big these numbers really are. Let me now give them some clues.
- People did not buy over 150 million guns with the expectation they would peacefully turn them in when they were banned.
- There were enough guns purchased during the Obama administration for there to be 2.4 guns for each of the Hillary Clinton voters.
- Hillary Clinton voters haven’t been buying the majority of the guns.
And, as I have said before, if they really don’t want people buying guns the quickest and easiest way to reduce gun sales is for anti-gun politicians to leave office.—Joe]
