Despite some people's claims to the contrary, 5 lbs. is actually different than 12 lbs.
It's never simple/easy.

I can assure you that the liberal, progressive democrats didn't learn anything from Venezuela or any other firearm banning country. I would venture to say that the democrats are doubling down on firearm confiscation. They are most likely taking direction from Bloomberg and/or Soros?

If the Lib/Left are for gun control, then they are not against guns, because the guns will be needed to disarm people. So it’s not that they are anti-gun. They’ll need the police’s guns to take away other people’s guns. So they’re very pro-gun; they just believe that only the Government (which is, of course, so reliable, honest, moral and virtuous…) should be allowed to have guns. There is no such thing as gun control. There is only centralizing gun ownership in the hands of a small political elite and their minions.

I have seen the term: "monopoly of force" used in various writings that endorse the possession of guns strictly by the powers that be, NOT the rest of us!

Gun control - a firm grip, a clear and steady aim at your target and a smooth operation of the trigger. Followed up by, uh, a follow-through.

All else is unnecessary frippery.

The lesson I teach:

Who has guns?

Government - People - Criminals.

If the government passes laws to confiscate guns, who will turn them in?

The government will not.

The criminals will not.

The intent is to disarm the people.

Who will now be preyed upon with impunity by the other two groups.

Questions?

Remember when Chavez built AK and other gun factories and handed about 500k of them to his people to prepare for the gringo invasion? Times have changed haven't they?
