58. How is stopping the introduction of new units disarming anyone?

 

It's a decades long struggle to raise consciousness, marginalize those who perversely rejoice in the epidemic of guns and ammo in the hands of the public, staff the courts with judges who will narrow the meaning of any such "right," and allow natural attrition to work its magic.

It's exactly like the civil rights movement. Heighten awareness of racial discrimination, ostracize those who engage in it, staff the courts with judges who will shape the law to discourage provincialism, and allow the integration mandate to work it magic.

And just like Jim Crow, America's gun problem is home grown. Not some sinister lunacy smuggled in from abroad.
