Not Exactly A Ringing Endorsement For Gun Control, That.

Sure enough, life imitates Scott Adams when it comes to the Democrats' calls for gun control:

Scott Adams last year put it very well on his blog:

So it seems to me that gun control can’t be solved because Democrats are using guns to kill each other – and want it to stop – whereas Republicans are using guns to defend against Democrats. Psychologically, those are different risk profiles. And you can’t reconcile those interests, except on the margins. For example, both sides might agree that rocket launchers are a step too far. But Democrats are unlikely to talk Republicans out of gun ownership because it comes off as “Put down your gun so I can shoot you.”

On the heels of Las Vegas we have, just as Scott Adams predicted, the oh-so-clever Democrats tweeting clear invitations that the NRA give in on gun control exactly as he predicted:

But don't worry, after Sinatra and her ilk wish death on NRA members, they'll express surprise and outrage and claim we're "unreasonable" and against common sense when we refuse to go along with their gun banning schemes.

Hey Aaron;

When I hear "we need to have a discussion on guns", that means that I will be lectured by people that think they are my intellectual, cultural and moral "betters"....Naaa I ain't feeling it. And when they mention "you need to compromise..." According to Webster compromise is that wither side gives up something....well the only people giving up us the lawful gun owner...the leftist ain't giving up anything....they ain't getting as much as they want....This time...They want the total ban, but will settle for "assault rifles...", really so I lose a freedom and they "settle"...until next time....Ain't budging anymore.
