Default NEW THEME BY IN GUN CONTROL?

Is it just me,or is the new theme by the dem's is "we are just closing a loop-hole in the current law"? It seemed that every author of a bill has been using that ploy when taking about his or her bill. I guess "it's for the children" has gotten old.

It is a normal tactic. They all confer/decide upon themes together. Either actively or via hearing someone they respect say it first.

"Common sense to close the loophole for the children" pretty much sums up every speech they give

Yes, it is a new strategy bc the general public cannot remember that these "loopholes" were actually legitimate "exemptions" usually specifically written into the law for real reasons... The strategy is just wait long enough for the lemmings to forget then start an outcry that those "exemptions"-now-"loopholes" are the MAIN reason why their legislation is failing to reduce crimes and deaths...

Which is the PRIMARY reason why I resist legislation that in theory I would normally agree with - i.e. background checks... Im simply not going to hand them the rope they want to hang me with.

If I supported any such legislation say regarding background checks for example, what ever is exempted would turn into the "loophole" they then blame for the failure of their foolish laws.

The example I tell people is that it doesnt matter how good the fruit looks if I know the tree is poisoned.

Loophole is a terribly misused term, these days it means something legal one desires to make illegal.

Its not a new theme.

The 2nd Amendment stands squarely in the way of the anti's doing a John Howard and banning firearms by decree inside of 14 days.

Since they can't do that legally, the 2nd Amendment and all rights accorded from it are considered a "loophole"- as in, an act which should be illegal but is not.
