They (progressives) can't bring forth an honest, common sense basis for gun control.
They just can't.
They have to rely on hyperbole, rhetoric, straw man arguments, fear, threats, bribes to get their draconian laws passed.
We know that Chicago, and California have now and have for awhile two of the strictest gun laws and they have not now or in the past worked, Chicago has more gun violence than any other state and California is pretty close. But other states such as Texas where gun laws are less strict there tends to be less gun violence.
Or would you much rather have him licenced as a fit and proper person to own such a weapon?..
