Lots of examples here but the conclusion is:
If “gun control” extremists actually want to ban “weapons of war”… why are they not calling for actual weapons of war to be banned with their zombie “assault weapon ban”?
And if all they want to do with this rotting, shambling piece of legislation is only ban “weapons of war” – as they’ve been trying to proclaim for nearly a month now – then why is all that other stuff included in the blast radius?
Perhaps they have no idea what they are talking about.
And perhaps they are being… less than honest.
To answer the question, it is because lies and ignorance are the best they can muster.
