Daily Beast: Obama, Hillary Toying With ‘Civil War’ Over Gun Confiscation

Daily Beast: Obama, Hillary Toying With 'Civil War' Over Gun Confiscation

via Infowars

I was going to quote the actual Daily Beast article, but it was full of middle-of-the-road, why-can’t-we-just-regulate-guns pap.

Guns can’t simply be regulated like cars because there will always be another drive for further regulation any time a shooting happens, because there is a significant political group that is determined to ban firearms outright, and because—unlike cars—there is a significant segment of the population that has never owned guns and is actually afraid of them.

The Daily Beast theoretically agreed that “confiscation on a massive scale” may be “the only way to solve American gun violence,” but they pointed out that it was not realistic and suggested Hillary risks causing irreparable divisions by talking about confiscation then mocking gun owners as conspiracy theorists waiting for “black helicopters” to come take their guns away.

According to The Daily Beast, confiscation was workable in Australia because there was no Second Amendment and the government only had to take 650,000 guns. That is a far cry from the “350 million” believed to be in Americans’ hands.

Yes, “350 million.”

But even more important than the number of guns is the depth of American “devotion” to them. And The Daily Beast observes that it is this devotion–this dedication to the philosophy and tradition underlying the right to keep and bear arms–that turns the mere mention of confiscation into something that could literally rip the country apart.
