The real reason for the gun control talk — in my opinion — is to take the pressure off the administration on the economic front. Everyone has been very concerned about the depression, the coming higher taxes, the massive budget deficits and the attendant defaults on government obligations that they just had to counter-strike somewhere. Just like the Brusilov offensive designed to relieve the French at Verdun, this strategic foray into gun control might accomplish the short-term goal at the cost of squandering much political capital the Democrats have.
Though, he might be wrong. We have had the new Republican Golden Boy, Cuomo saying that, “…registration/confiscation is on the table…“. They are getting a might brazen with that there rhetoric. I wonder if brother Mario has armed security? His kids & wife must be more equal than mine.
I grow weary of this.
