Oh, I agree with you. I should have been more clear: None of the anti-gun actions make any sense to anyone else.

Why gun prohibitionists have lost traction, relevance
One might think that after years of practice, the gun prohibition lobby would understand that worn out platitudes and broad brush wish lists packaged as a canned response to some new violent outrage no longer get any serious traction with the public.

I appreciate your preaching... to the choir.
Many of the folks that I come up against that are so anti.. simply do not have a clue... They don't know the difference between an assault rifle and a Glock... a semi automatic or a revolver... Some want to ban all "military" weapons... that would include shotguns and handguns too, I suppose...
They want to make it harder to get guns.. they want to make it harder to change ... ahem... clips... they want to limit rounds in a mag to 30 for rifles; and what, 10 for handguns..?
But one of the "funniest" (hmmm... not ha ha) things that one said to me... when I explained to her the myriad ways you cannot legislate inanimate objects, gun laws are useless, "Gun Free Zones" are ironic folly... she responded with "Laws don't mean anything, I mean, if murder were not illegal, there are lots of people that would be on my list..."
Well, there's one gal I don't want to have any guns... and probably at the root of why she's so anti... she probably doesn't trust herself...
Deep rooted animosity towards "evil guns" is bred of some other root cause.
Well, it's not "preaching to the choir" because I have a pretty broad readership. However (comma), I know a fair number of folks will utilize the arguments or information they glean from my screed to carry on their own preaching missions to the vast unscrubbed. :wink:

I think violence in the media is the problem. Music, TV and movies glamorize thug life. Plain and simple the kids growing up get the tattoos, drugs, join gangs, guns to look big time to friends and foes as it is in the media.....
