Those are exactly the types of gun control reforms that are becoming the basis of the democratic platform for 2020 along with national registration and sweeping new bans on “assault weapons” and high capacity magaiznes with the intial target being to completely ban semi autos within a decade before we see the next sweeping round of infringements.
Until they think they have close to majority support for a repeal of the 2nd Amendment they plan to keep chipping away at it in the name of “Gun Safety Legislation” which of course has nothing to do with gun safety at all, and “sensible regulations on weapons of war”.
It reminds me of a film I watched back in the sixties about preserving our hunting heritage. They showed us a world where in a few decades you’d still be “allowed” to hunt, but you’d only have one day to do it, be required to sit or stand in a designated one yard area and a game warden would accompany each hunter and hand you only one round for your single shot rifle when the deer stepped out into one very specific location.
Sounded preposterous at the time to most but indeed that’s the direction they want to take us.
So far they haven’t gone back to promoting outright bans on hunting because they know it’s a loser position but don’t kid yourself about the eventual goals of the left.
It’s all about eventually disarming us and absolute control over people, not just control over our access to firearms. They can’t get to the second without first accomplishing the former.
