Then they take the smoking lounge away. All while raising taxes a buck a pack every other year. Do you see where I'm going with this? THAT'S THE MINDSET. The fascists behind this want to appeal to your reasonable nature. They bombard you with horrible images and play to your fears. They skew the facts - they outright lie. And their endgame has nothing to do with reason or compromise. If they get "assault" rifles, next will be semi-automatic handguns. Then it will be all handguns. Then it will be rifles. Then you're living in communist China wondering what the **** happened. Don't believe me? Think I'm nuts, or paranoid? I am a student of history, my dear, and know how the game is played. There is no reasoning with these people - no compromise. You dig in now and fight the good fight. The alternative is oblivion.
You left one small detail out though, smoking isn't a constitutional right while owning guns is.
