Why Should Anyone Be Surprised

That, in a country in which only last fall,a large proportion of its population was convinced that a coup was in progress and that they had directly elected a prime minister, is now seized with the idea that gun control for farmers should be scrapped? Given enough money, propaganda and appeals to tribal loyalty, I am convinced that large groups of people can be convinced of pretty much anything.

  1. Give them a few years, and they'll demand that gun control be scrapped altogether...

  2. Yup, that's where we are headed.The thinking will be laid out thusly: Law abiding long gun owners don't need to be registered, so is it fair that law abiding handgun owners are persecuted for wanting to own handguns? Repeat that 24/7 for several years, add in the idea that "law abiding" folks need guns to keep them safe from "street gangs" (do I need to draw you a picture, wink, wink) and presto, no more gun control.

  3. Well, this member of the NRA will cheer that effort on...
