He’s right. The reason the government wants “gun control” rather than “crime control” is that the 2nd Amendment was never intended to protect Americans against criminals–at least, not criminals in the private sector. The 2nd Amendment was intended only to protect us against big government, against Presidents, Congressman, Senators and Judges, against treasonous whores in the cathouse on the Potomac.
Big government wants gun control because big government fears that the people of The United States of America will wake up and recognize the crimes and acts of treason already committed against the people by the government in Washington DC. (See, The Purpose of the 2nd Amendment) Big government fears that if the people realize that they can’t use the courts and/or political mechanisms to stop the treason, that the people will resort to the 2nd Amendment to stop those crimes and act of treason.
Our current government wants “gun control” because government knows that treasonous, tyrannical government is the target intended by the 2nd Amendment. Politicians don’t want gun control to protect the people. Politicians want gun control to protect politicians from being shot.
