    It's all smoke and mirrors, hide the real agenda under reassurances "no one's coming to take your guns (right now)"

    The wife sends me articles from The Atlantic every now and again. I don't know anything about the publication but they seem to be able to write a decent report without pumping it full of invective and subjective opinion.

    This is a good example. They make a lot of smart points. I think the pro-2A community is well advised to be as vigilant as ever, if not more so. Wolves in sheep's clothing.

    Another lesson on how controlling the terms and the language leads to control of the debate, all the while obfuscating the true purpose because that never really changed.

    "Peace, peace, when there is no peace."—Jeremiah 6:14.

    As usual, Herr Glock, an excellent find of an article to expose the roots and true purpose of those attempting to control people and not just guns. The writer probably didn't have that in mind but a careful reading will do exactly that.

    So we use the hysteria caused by mentally deranged people as an excuse for gun control.

    "The Patriot Act" (seriously misnamed!) cancels out the freedom of speech.

    Drones cancel out the need for due process.

    3 Constitutionally promised rights gone. Next?

    This liberal just upped my NRA membership from annual to lifetime!
