Someone with a Harney, Oregon URL says they “do not undertsnd Mom’s for safety’s tactics.
Well, Handgu Control, Inc’s aims were the same as Bloomberg’s and HCI founder Nelson Shields explained his, and the high dollar PR flacks, tactics in getting an “Assault Weapons Ban” by invoking the ancient fable of the camel and the tent.
One bitterly cold night, the camel complained of the cold to a group of men in a tent, begging to just put his nose under the tent so he could be more comfortable. The men agreed, but soon all the camel was in the tent, and the men were out ine cold.
In one of the Dale Carnegie courses I attended, the trainer pointed out that Hitler did not come to power in one fell swoop, but incrementally, pme s,a;; ste[ tpward a [redetermined goal at a time. The former runner for the Imperial German Army began his political career in 1918, virtually on Armistice Day, Veterans day, or Freedom Say over much of Europe, and became Reich chancellor in 1933. In four years,Hitler transformed a relatively well off country into an impoverished one, forced to war to get other people’s money to pay for his promises to the Germans after taking pwoer, Germany was in runs – all through small, innocuous sounding steps.
In the Moms for Murder case, the intent is to increase violent crime rates through first imposing innocuous sounding gun controls, in this case “universal background checks, which have and will drive up crime rates unless offsetting measures outweigh the UZBCs’.
When they fil, the “Moms” can come back with “We did nto do enough, and impose even more stringent controls. Until there is no room left for the private gun owner, and gun rights are gone. But the crime rates remain.
Other tentacles of Bloomberg’s octopus are pushing “common sense gun laws.” Laws that consist of the very same laws that sent America’s violent crime rate sky high in 1905-05, a ban on public carry; restrictions on purchase that sent violent crime rates sky high i after imposition of the Gun Control Act of 1968.
As you can see, the tactics are simple,time proven, and take advantage of one aspect of our gregarious nature, the tendency to follow the very loudest and worst of leaders.
