Another non-solution to the wrong problem

Ah, me. The state of Illinois really does breed a...well, a very special kind of politician. Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Rahm Emmanuel. Oh, and let's not forget Congressthing Jan Schakowsky, who thinks the terror in Paris is a "chilling reminder" that we need more gun control in the U.S.

Ok, got it. Let's respond to terrorism by stripping law abiding Americans of their constitutional rights. Today the 2nd amendment, tomorrow...what? Freedom of speech? Freedom of religion? How about if we just quarter S.W.A.T. teams in our houses on a rotating basis?

Freedom to march into a FEMA camp not entirely of your choice.

....Congressthing.... Perfect! Or Congresstool.

Her calls are reminiscent of post-Oklahoma City bombings when there was discussion about placing restrictions on fertilizer. Those restrictions would greatly impact the farmers, but that didn't matter to the let-no-crisis-go-to-waste mob.

The only difference gun laws make is that criminals have an odd antique assortment of weapons, like this Russian guy found with a Tommy-gun near where my kids used to go to school, and part of the reason why I moved away! -

"Sub machine gun"? Or whatever.

Hey she's got a point. With the magical power of government regulation, firearms will cease to exist! They'll just turn to dust. Pixie dust! Wingnuts, why don't you get this?
