But 90% support gun control

A media/anti-gun trope has been that 90% of NRA members support whatever gun control law they want. Well, the NRA polled it’s members and, yeah, not so much:

92 percent oppose banning the sale of firearms between private citizens.
92 percent oppose background checks on the sale of firearms between private citizens.
89 percent oppose banning so-called assault weapons.
93 percent oppose gun registration.
91 percent SUPPORT laws to keep guns out of the hands of people with mental illnesses.

    I have a problem even with the last one. The devil is in the details. How is “mental illness” to be defined? After all, I have seen people claim that wanting to own a gun is a sign of mental illness.

    After all, they redefined terms so that believing that you are a different sex than biology indicates is completely normal.

    The only 90% that support gun control are Democrats.
    As for the mental illness, having an invisible friend that you have conversations with is considered mental illness, but not to the point of being considered a danger to yourself or others. Certain types of mental illness would qualify as being dangerous, but you would have to have a psychiatrist determine that and convince a Court of Law to deny them their 2A Right.

    One almost gets the impression that the Liberty Grabbers of the nation’s Socialist-Left are perfectly willing to Lie through their teeth in order to attain an absolute monopoly in the use of force over the citizenry…

    Geoff, having an invisible friend that you talk to is okay; having an invisible friend that talks to you is scary. (See “Abraham and Issac”)

    And the way the law would be written and passed is that you’d have to hire a lawyer and a psychiatrist to regain your 2A rights.

    GEOFF SAYS: “you would have to have a psychiatrist determine that and convince a Court of Law to deny them their 2A Right.”

    That’s not necessarily true. Recent cases have allowed gun confiscation from people accused of “mental” incompetence when accused by family members, sometimes only casual acquaintances, without even notifying the gun owner … and with no clear recourse.

    “THE LAW WOULD BE WRITTEN” is a statement of hope, not a statement of fact. It’s easy to be positive that your constitutional rights will not be violated, but once your private property is confiscated and destroyed, that’s a “hollow man” argument.
