The lovely and sociable Mrs. Borepatch is leaving to go visit her friends in Massachusetts, and is driving with #1 Son and #2 Son. As part of prepping the Borepatchmobile for the journey, I made sure to remove any sort of firearms related equipment that might make her a felon in the People's Soviet*. This includes a bunch of pre-ban magazines collected at the Dallas blogshoot. I don't know if they'd be illegal for her to have in the car, but I'm in no mood to take a chance.
And that's the point of the Gun Control movement. It's about raising so much uncertainty, with such severe consequences, and such a disconnect from common sense as to deter any association with firearms at all.
So well done, Mass.Gov: your cunning plan is working as intended. Of course, the citizens of the Commonwealth are no more safe than if the Mrs. had brought the magazines with her, but then it isn't about safety, is it?
* My lovely bride tells me that it's not strictly correct to call it the People's Soviet, because they don't have a proper Soviet. OK, they have an improper soviet.
