I just don't get why those in the government and so many on the Left want to move towards more gun control and even gun confiscation. What are they so worried about? Is it really that they want to reduce the amount of gun violence in the country? How about looking at the overall amount of violence in the country? Do they really believe that criminals are ever going to care about what laws the pass about anything? Are they really worried that good, law-abiding, reasonable people who own guns are going to suddenly go on a gun violence-filled crime spree? What is the real purpose behind this whole issue?
I cannot help but believe that the real purpose is to disarm the majority of the American people so that they are defenseless against the criminal population and that the people will then demand government do more to protect them, in the inexorable course of making the people more and more dependent on them. Beyond that, the people will also be defenseless in turn to that bigger government that will be dictating more and more aspects of their lives, and eventually people will object to that.
