Another backdoor gun grab

04.07.15 09:01 PM

The proposal by Congressweasel Rosa DeLauro (Gun-grabber-Conn.) to provide two $1,000 tax credits to people who turn their “assault weapons” over to law enforcement was met with everything from indifference to guffaws by gun owners.

After all, DeLauro displayed typical gun-grabber “idiocy” and prevarication with the pronouncement on her website that: “Assault weapons are not about hunting, or even self-defense. There is no reason on Earth, other than to kill as many people as possible in as short a time as possible, that anyone needs a gun designed for a battlefield.*These weapons were used in Newtown, Aurora and countless other mass shootings across America.*And they have been disproportionately used to kill law enforcement officers in the line of duty.*They have no place on the streets or in our homes.”

Gun owners have even gone so far as to state in some forums that as long as the bill is voluntary, it is harmless. Reason’s J.D. Tuccille suggested that the law would/should lead to people purchasing a stripped-down sporting rifle for about $600 and turn it in for the “credit” and then turn around and use the $2,000 to buy a better rifle with accessories and some ammo.

But not to worry, he opined, such a bill “has about zero chance of getting through the current Congress.”

Such dismissal of DeLauro’s gun grab is dangerously shortsighted. With Michael Bloomberg’s money behind the effort and indifference to it from the gun lobby, such a bill could easily be slipped into and hidden in some other legislation and enough Republicans convinced to look the other way as it slid through the process. Most politicians would sell their mothers into slavery for campaign donations. And once gun legislation becomes part of the tax code, IRS bureaucrats can massage it to mean almost anything.

Gun grabbers are not “idiots” when it comes to stealing liberty. They are nefarious, determined, disingenuous and patient. They are masters at employing gradualism to achieve their ultimate goal of disarming law-abiding citizens.
