This Is Discouraging

From “How the White House silenced gun control groups,” Reid J. Epstein, Politico:

“President Barack Obama’s gun control agenda is looking more doomed by the day, but gun control advocates still haven’t said a word to complain.

“That’s no accident.

“The White House knew its post-Newtown effort would require bringing key gun control groups into the fold. So the White House offered a simple arrangement: the groups could have access and involvement, but they’d have to offer silence and support in exchange.

“The implied rules, according to conversations with many of those involved: No infighting. No second-guessing in the press. Support whatever the president and Vice President Joe Biden propose. And most of all, don’t make waves or get ahead of the White House.”

    God. This makes me physically sick.
    I am SO sick of the whole “Well, I totally support the second amendment and your right to own a gun, but…..”
    I DON”T support the 2nd Amendment, unless it means: “You can use your musket as long as you are in the militia”. I want gun control. I want no more weapons of mass destruction. I want NO GUNS.
    I need to move to a country where the laws are not insane. I need to move to Australia.
