A George Washington University professor suffering from the liberal disease hoplophobia—the irrational and paranoid fear of guns—is calling for total disarmament in the United States.
“Given that even micro gun control measures will be effectively blocked by the NRA and its allies, and that promoting mini measures as potentially effective is misleading, progressives may as well go for the big enchilada: Call for domestic disarmament,” writes Amitai Etzioni, a professor of international relations.
Etzioni, writing for the Huffington Post, suggests electing a president who will stack the Supreme Court and attack the Second Amendment.
He would also have Congress pass legislation making gun manufacturers “liable for harm done with their products” and outlaw the sale of ammunition.
If the current political climate is any indication, this will not happen.
The professor does not detail how more than 300 million firearms in the United States would be confiscated. He also does not address the fact forced disarmament will lead to the death of police and otherwise law-abiding citizens.
Following San Bernadino The New York Times called for the implementation of laws that “would require Americans who own [weapons that scare the dickens out of hoplophobics] to give them up for the good of their fellow citizens.”
Millions of Americans—afraid of brutal SWAT teams and trigger-happy psychopaths who love violence sanctioned by the state—will turn in their weapons for fear of endangering themselves and their families.
Hundreds of thousands, possibly a few million others will not turn in their firearms.
