Pass a law demanding that we turn in our standard-capacity magazines? Make us obey.
Pass a law insisting that we register whatever you consider the politically unpopular weapon of the moment? Come and find them.
Pass a law attempting to make the Second Amendment more conditional than it already is? We’ll laugh. Because we don’t get our freedom from any piece of paper and we won’t surrender any more of our freedom for some piece of paper, either.
Ban this or that type of ammo? More will slip through porous borders. More will be made in secret places. Ammo isn’t complicated.
Ban homemade guns or the increasingly marvellous tools to produce them? Oh my, you dream, you dream, you dream, you pathetic control freaks in legislatures and police departments everywhere. That genie is long out of its bottle.
Pass laws that punish us for the deeds of creeps like South Carolina’s church shooter or the nutcase of Aurora? The merely confirms what we already know: that you “controllers” consider us your enemy even when we are not — which ends up making us your enemy in fact.
