You know that old joke about the guy who asks a woman if she’d sleep with him for a million dollars?
She says yes.
“Would you sleep with me for $200?” “
Of course not,” she replies. “What kind of woman do you think I am?” “
We’ve already established that,” he answers. “We’re just haggling over price.”
Same deal with gun control advocates.
“Would you eliminate Americans’ right to own the same ‘weapons of war’ carried by the police and military?”
“Would you forcibly disarm Americans?”
“Of course not! What kind of people do you think we are?”
“We’ve already established that. We’re just haggling over the timeline.”
Of course this comes from a person that is not a citizen, but a "subject" of the British crown. He has no rights and cannot be expected to understand the concept of freedom.
