CA – OPINION – The Beginning of the End for Gun Control

A wave of violence has swept across America in recent months. In Portland, a mob dragged a man to the ground and beat him unconscious. In Kenosha, another one set a dumpster on fire and rolled it towards a gas station. In St. Louis, yet another broke into a gated community and allegedly threatened two residents with death. Indeed, for the nearly 10,000 protests that have sprung up across America in recent months, around 570 of them—over one in twenty—have devolved into violence. Not helping the matter, of course, are the activist district attorneys who refuse to prosecute rioters, nationwide calls to defund or even abolish the police altogether, and promises from the rioters themselves that “the suburbs are next.” How have Americans responded to this chaos? Simple. They’ve bought guns. Lots and lots of guns. It isn’t just the “bitter clingers” and “deplorables” doing so, either. Gun ownership has risen among blacks even more dramatically than whites, and women make up 40% of sales. Most interesting of all, the surge is largely comprised of first-time buyers. In light of this, many previously-acceptable, “common-sense” gun-control policies are likely to lose a great deal of support. Waiting periods are one example: they may be a fine idea on paper, but that quickly changes when you realize your city can turn into a riot zone at the drop of a hat – or in this case, at the drop of a grand jury’s decision to not indict two officers. Gun licenses that can take up to 18 months, background checks that can be delayed arbitrarily, and mandatory safety courses that can be cancelled indefinitely will likely undergo a similar shift in public opinion.  [full article]
