I am often amused by how the media sometimes, trying to make our arguments look ridiculous, actually ends up doing our jobs for us by getting the word out in a way that’s likely to scare the living hell out of our people. This is an example:
The latest ridiculous [NRA] scare tactic involves a federal requirement that gun shop owners in border states provide the ATF with the birth dates, addresses, race and gender, of individuals who purchase two or more semi-automatic rifles greater than .22 calibers in a five-day period.
Well, when you put it that way, surely the tinfoil hat crowd will wonder what all the fuss has been about. None of our people could, likewise, imagine buying a semi-auto rifle for a home and the cabin on the lake in a five day period. I think it’s also amazing that they think this is is all driven by NRA, rather than the other way around.
