Over the past few weeks, Ive written a series of columns about some of the myths perpetuated by the gun lobby. One on the claims made about the cosmetic features of assault rifles, another about the idea of the Second Amendment as a self-destruct mechanism.
This time, Im focusing on the biggest myth of them all: that the government is coming for our guns.
This is simply not true.
At this time, no serious person is suggesting confiscation as a viable solution to the gun violence problem. I mean it. Anyone who honestly believes, or even suggests, that it would be right, feasible or a good idea to take legally owned guns away from law abiding citizens is kidding themselves.
The government is not coming for the peoples guns. Legally, it never can, thanks to the 2008 and 2010 Supreme Court decisions in District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago, which guarantee an individual right to bear arms.
These cases really should have ended the most immediate fears of a government confiscation program once and for all, but here we are today, still seeing advertisements from the NRA, like one released on February 12 titled Ask Obamas Experts, saying that the presidents gun control proposals would lead to confiscation.
Lets say this is true. The president, or anyone in the government, for that matter, can talk all they want about confiscating firearms, but the fact is that it will never happen. According to D.C. v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago, they cant even force you to put a trigger-lock on your gun.
This makes the threat of confiscation essentially a non-issue....

You may want to review this prior to your next medical appointment.

She said, Do you have any guns in the house?...
Nice job :)
If your hand is the one on the heat knob, it seems the frogs in the kettle are always paranoid.
This is simply not true.
I was in the middle of Katrina, but in Biloxi, Mississippi, not New Orleans. They never tried that nonsense in Mississippi.
Mississippi didn’t have a hard left Dem governor to look the other way/order the confiscation.
