Did anyone else hear the overly repeated sound bite from the Senate hearing today on gun control where the opposition said (I'm paraphrasing) that "talking about gun control and not including guns would be like talking about lung cancer and not including cigarettes."
Great analogy except that cigarettes are a not right specifically listed in the Constitution, do not require a background check, are not banned, or are not in the process of being banned. No one has tried to shorten (in comparison to magazine capacity) a cigarette, restrict where a business can sell cigarettes, or prohibit possession. All they have done is prohibit where you can smoke a cigarette...and I'm willing to bet all the geographic areas combined about where you can legally discharge a firearm is a mere fraction of where cigarette smoking is allowed.
Not to mention the fact that not all lung cancer is caused by cigarettes.
