Be careful what you wish for.
Of course, everybody blithely calling for civil war is skating a thin line with insanity, and if you get it, I sincerely hope you get it in your front yard.
As the Heartless Libertarian opined over on the Book of Faceplant:
“Especially since the American Civil War passed from living memory, Americans have a very skewed view of what ‘civil war’ looks like, because the major parts of our Civil War were fought like a state-on-state conflict of the time. The nastiness that comes from intermingled populations fighting each other – Missouri, western Virginia, other parts of trans-Appalachia – definitely happened, but it wasn’t a major part of the fighting then (unless of course, you happened to be involved), and it’s almost entirely absent from the historical narrative now. But historically, civil wars look a lot more like Bosnia, or El Salvador, or post-colonial Africa than the American Civil War. And none of those took place in a country with more guns than people.”
“We know that if there is a strict enforcement of background checks, then fewer guns get into the hands of criminals,” the president said.
“If you willfully sell a gun to someone who’s prohibited from possessing it, if you willfully fail to run a background check, if you willfully falsify a record … my message to you is this:
“We’ll find you and we will seek your license to sell guns.”
Biden insisted his administration will make it impossible to “sell death and mayhem on our streets” and slammed the country’s gun problem as an “outrage” that needs to end.
AG Garland also warned that “gun dealers that break the rules” will be held accountable for their actions.”
ummm-kay. So, you’re only going after the *dealers* who falsify a record as opposed to *buyers* who falsify a record and mislead dealers who are complying with the law?
In other words, if you are a scion of a Democrat President, well, that’s a horse of a different color, and the rules don’t apply there?
Just like rules regarding handling classified government record communications don’t apply to certain classes of government employees, if they are of the Proper Party and married to the proper cigar aficionado?
Ms. Psaki, do you have any comment?
