Herschel comes right out and says it.
No one in the MSM has the guts to ask why someone who is a “terrorist” is allowed to be in America to begin with. It would force the executive to admit to all of his plans for social change, his open borders policy, the fact that none of these lists are subject to due process, no jury has decided on the fate of pitiful souls who have run afoul of the system, and all such souls are left to the devices of an out-of-control executive who doesn’t care, and sends their problems to judges who have been educated at Harvard, Yale and Emory.
Is anyone really surprised at this? After all, a Syrian immigrant who said 9/11 changed the world for good is a homeland security advisor. They will call light darkness and darkness light. If you believe that the second amendment is in place to ameliorate tyranny, you must be eradicated because you’re the enemy, a right-wing terrorist.
Or so they seem to think. And that’s the point, isn’t it? Guns are good, and they know it. They are wonderful machines, just like cars, stoves, and HVAC. But in the “wrong” hands they can prevent the grand social designs of the ruling class. Again, the goal isn’t to destroy the gun companies. That would mean no one had guns, and no one includes them.
The goal is to control whether you have them, and to do that they won’t be so obvious as to pass a law against all gun ownership. The Fuds in the hunting clubs will be left alone to purchase their shotguns for dove and quail hunting. They don’t want to anger the gentlemanly class.
They will go after you by the terrorist watch list, the no-fly list, and any other assortment of executive powers and decisions and regulations and rulings. They will never confiscate your guns. They will prevent you from renewing your driver’s license, your hunting license, your fishing license, your professional license, your bank cards, your concealed handgun permits, and in short, all the framework you have built your entire life as a law abiding, peaceable citizen. Then they will go after your wife and children and their ability to enroll in education. They will go after what matters most to you.
If you’re focused on guns rather than people and their relationship to the ruling class, you need to be recalibrated.
Damned near everything does.
