In fact one of my last comments proposed this idea.
Everyone's demanding a solution from our government that is more than happy to oblige, almost besides themselves. And history shows the solution is not likely to err on the side of protecting liberty.
So how perfect would it be to continue getting the right all worked up about gun control and then suddenly whip out TSA/DHS as the recommended solution from O's "task force". Conservatives and gun owners will be reeling from an elated daze over keeping their guns before they realize what just happened.
And as far as liberals go... Heck you're already mostly there. You're absolutely right, all that's needed to tie a bow and send it home is tout what a boon it will be to the economy.
*wipe hands* Done & DONE!
If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.
