The goal of Gun Control

#1 Son and #2 Son are driving to Massachusetts to see friends.  As part of prepping the Borepatchmobile for the journey, I made sure to remove any sort of firearms related equipment that might make them 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 them 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 they had brought the magazines with her, but then it isn't about safety, is it?

* I'm told 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.

States of that ilk I just refer to as 'occupied' territory. I avoid them if possible.

So.....she and the troops are going...why? Are people from the formerly great state of Massachusetts unable to travel south?

I'm not sure I'd put myself in the position of choosing to leave America when non-Americans are fully capable of leaving their country to travel to America, especially when no passports are required.

Anon, they want to see their friends. Heck, I want to see my friends.

Don't forget any stray casings. A fired .22 casing hidden under the seat is a one-way ticket straight to felony-land, in the People's Republik of MA. Mens rea is irrelevant. Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.
