Occasionally I'll run across people, whom I refer to as Conspironuts, who think there is a conspiracy (to them everything is a conspiracy) to do all kinds of awful things to the U.S. Like make firearms illegal.
They're the kind who think Obama will issue an Executive Order banning firearms, will refuse to leave office (which has been claimed about Presidents for over 200 years). And poof! firearms will be illegal and the Second Amendment null and void.
Now how is this going to happen? I'm not sure how many firearms there are in the U.S. I think somewhere in the neighborhood of 300 million. Are the police and military going to search everyone's house and confiscate all 300 hundred million of them? That'll never happen because it's impossible (it would take decades and, of course, people will resist). And how are they going to find buried caches?
It's possible to store on the top shelf of a closet all you need to manufacture a firearm. And with 3-D printing these days...
Others claim all these Third Worlders pouring into the U.S. will get laws passed outlawing firearms. What? The State is some sort of god? The government is not nearly as powerful as people think it is. And immigration into the U.S. is going to stop quite soon.
People who are against firearms aren't against firearms. They're for the government having them, to try to disarm people. And of course the government is so pure and innocent and trustsworthy...
The first time I met a foreigner who was against firearms was some 85-IQ Nigerian, when I was 20 years old. I remember thinking that he was so dumb it never occurred to him that it would be impossible to disarm Americans.
I used to live in Albuquerque. In New Mexico you can openly carry a pistol on your hip. No license is needed. Just carry it. I saw it more than once.
You think if the federal government tries to pass a law telling people in New Mexico they cannot carry firearms openly (first of all it will never pass) that the people there will pay any attention to it? Even the police there for for open-carry. I talked to more than one of them.
I'm originally from Illinois. They've just passed concealed-carry laws there. And I lived in Missouri for a long time. Concealed-carry was just passed there, too.
The idea the Second Amendment being repealed is just, well, stupid. It's not going to happen.
It's not the tool that's the problem. As always, it's the fool. Fool control is the answer.
