Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Those Are My Principles


But if you don’t like them, well, I have others.

During my twelve-and-half years as a member of this body, I have never believed that additional gun control or federal registration of guns would reduce crime. I am convinced that a criminal who wants a firearm can get one through illegal, untraceable, unregistered sources, with or without gun control.

    Unfortunately, with the condition that Joe is in, every day (hour?) Is a blank slate and the Left is doing the writing.

    “Hell yes, we are gonna take your AR15!” is the 2020 version.

    I see the “I’ve evolved” excuse looming on the horizon.

    If there should be a (God forbid) civil war again, it would most likely start with some clumsy attempt to confiscate guns. The Biden idea of taxing them would require some sort of enforcement mechanism. That might be a flash point.
