I wouldn't say this is all of the sudden. This is just the usual playbook. I don't think most Americans actually know their money is being stolen, so I also wouldn't say that it has been right in front of our faces. I think this tactic has been pretty constant for quite a while and worked pretty well to keep most Americans from realizing the theft. I would agree however that it is uncanny how the liberty folk seem to never suspect that these scares are just another way to boost gun sales. Gun companies profit more during these gun control scares than any politicians, not that I am mad about gun companies profitting.
Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).
