What's more, if they get away with one ban, you can certainly expect others to follow.
This is the bigger issue that gets overlooked by the public. Many of the hardcore anti-gun crowd have a goal of eliminating civilian ownership of firearms. They see each law, fee, tax or ban as just one more step toward their ultimate goal. No I don’t think I’m paranoid I heard them state just this on the show Fresh Air on NPR one afternoon.
