“So this is how liberty dies…”

…or, What conversation?

“O’Rourke promises he will ‘bring everyone in America into the conversation— Republicans, Democrats, gun-owners, and non-gun-owners alike.’ But if a gun owner says he’d prefer to keep his property rather than surrender it to the federal government, that’s too bad.”

That’s about right. Bob has made it quite plain he doesn’t give a shit about the gun owners’ side of all this. Which in its own way is admirable, because neither do any of the other Democrats running. Bob was just the one to say it out loud.

Of course, not only does his bold declaration expose the “no one wants to take your guns” as the foul and malicious lie that it has always been, but it also goes a long way towards killing certain other measures, i.e., universal background checks for ALL firearms sales.

How is that, you ask?

Well, think about it. How is the government going to know whether the law is being obeyed, i.e., whether a given weapon was sold with or without a background check? Registration, that’s how. And what do we always say?

“Registration leads to confiscation.”

To which liberals have always said, “No one wants to take your guns, you paranoid wing nuts!”

And Bob has come out here and said, in effect, “uh, yeah we do.”

To thunderous applause, even.
