I read, years ago. That when otherwise intelligent people take actions
(usually legislation) that makes no sense. That there is a hidden agenda
involved. I do believe this more than ever. Yeah, they "say" to protect the
kids and all. But, the hidden agenda is the real one.
Germany in the 1930s, the parallel is shocking.

What just happened in NY is a classic example of why
the NRA and gun owners are fully justified in their positions
and unwilling to give in an inch.
This is not about reasonable, thought out, new regulations.
The fact that NY just banned magazines over 7 rounds
proves beyond a doubt that the libs are out to screw legal
gun owners. That limit makes probably 90% of the pistol
magazines out there illegal. The ones in the typical home
defense weapon. If they were not trying to screw
the legal gun owners, then a limit of 10 rounds would at
least cover a lot of the legal guns out there. You can't
buy a typical pistol that a police officer or a bank guard
carries with a 7 round magazine. For 7, the only guns
available are pretty much small compact models, eg .380,
that a woman might carry in a purse,
or .45 caliber, big guns, like the 1911. If you have a
mag bigger than 7, you have a year to get rid of it. After
that, if they find you with one, say after you fend off a
real criminal with one at your house, then YOU are
Further proof that they really don't give a damn is the
fact that they didn't even bother to take public comment.
They passed laws on everything from magazines to
requiring mental health professionals to turn in people,
without getting input from their citizens that are directly
involved. Any fair effort would have listened to input
from those people to learn about the effects, possible
unintended consequences, etc. But no, the libs have
their agenda, are full of the usual superiority complex
that goes along with it and that's it.
Oh, and here's another item from the news last night
that tells you what's really going on. The federal
background check program in 2009 had 77,000 people
try to buy guns through the system that were ineligigble
to do so. That pretty much means you had a felon
trying to buy a gun. Only 44 were prosecuted. And now
they want to take the legal guns away. Go figure.
