That’s sort of the point.

From CBS, via David Codrea:

Sen. Charles Schumer says retailers that sell assault weapons should stop offering them for purchase while Congress discusses gun regulation legislation….

Schumer says Congress is debating the issue, and if measures get passed that limit these type of weapons, it won’t help if more of them have recently been sold.

Won’t help, eh? I think that’s sort of the point. It’s being made obvious just as it was the months leading up to the passage of the Clinton gun ban in 1994 that, as Mike Vanderboegh put it a few years back, “we (are) not buying these rifles to turn them in.”

And let’s be honest with ourselves. That is the endgame here, even if Chuck the Schmuck, much like Eugene Robinson, is too chickenshit to come right out and say it. Why else would Schumer make such a comment? Apparently he thinks gun owners really are that stupid.
