Interesting, so your take is this could be a way to convict people (regardless of charge), so that they would not be able to own a gun anymore?
It is a bit of a stretch, but I definitely see where you are going with your line of thinking. Personally, I do not believe this Senator is half as
smart to hatch a plan such as that.. but who knows.
This initiative ( the 'criminalization' of the 'citizenry' ) has been seriously underway since Clinton.
Besides 'swearing,' another thing that 'everybody does' is have disagreements with their spouse. Consider the 'domestic violence' laws which
have been enacted at the state level in many, if not all states. Depending on the jurisdiction, charges can be brought if the 'victim' claims merely
that he/she 'felt threatened,' and their testimony need not be corroborated by a third party witness ... those convicted of 'domestic violence,'
even at the misdomeanor level are prohibited from owning firearms ...
What other things does 'everybody do?'
How about smoking weed ( more or less everybody, anyway, if you dont like that description, at least 60 million Americans do to some degree, and that
seems close enough ) ... How many 'illegal drug users' have been 'criminalized?'
Starting to catch my drift ?
Instead of going directly at removing civil rights through a 'constitutional convention,' some genius figured out they could do it much more simply
( and with a lot less publicity ) by 'criminalizing' the 'citizenry.'
To get an idea of the kinds of things ( basically 'normal' human behaviors ) which will next be 'criminalized' during the current Democratic
administration, try to think of things which 'everybody does' and which are 'politically incorrect.'
Scary, scary stuff ...
