Under the heading of " 'Nobody wants to take your guns!' my ass",

we have the bastard State Rep. Dan Muhlbauer, D-Manilla, in Iowa:
State Rep. Dan Muhlbauer, D-Manilla, says Iowa lawmakers should ban semi-automatic guns and "start taking them" from owners who refuse to surrender any illegal firearms through a buy-back program.
So we have a "I'm a gun owner BUT-" openly talking confiscation of anything he doesn't approve of.  But that's not supposed to trouble us.  And he, like Obama, wants the Australian Model: "Give us your property, or you go to prison.  Or, if you protest too much, we'll kill you.  But we'll give you a little money for it, so you don't feel too bad about this."

...I don't want to have the gun laws slung back so far that we start taking guns away and start limiting them to where people cannot enjoy guns, those that want to have it. And that's what I'm afraid, if we keep having these incidents happen, is what's going to happen."  'So I'm going to confiscate anything I don't like.  It's for your own good!'

Muhlbauer said a constituent approached him and suggested that the government place a chip in every gun that would ignite sensors should those guns cross into secure areas like school zones.

"I think that's carrying it too far," Muhlbauer said.
  'But confiscation is just right!'

And it's not just guns he doesn't approve of that need action:
Mental health must be up to date and not full of loopholes, he said. Muhlbauer also identified violent video games as a concern.

"We've got these video games out here for these little kids," he said. "Maybe it's time we start pulling them away. They're playing some really nasty games on there that are shoot-"em-up. Evidently our culture is pointing toward this."

Muhlbauer said he doesn't know how the Legislature would go about prohibiting children from playing video games he finds objectionable.

Same way you want to deal with guns you object to: ban them.  If you've got no problem doing that with guns, why a problem with banning video games?

So: He wants semi-auto firearms banned, he wants 'big guns' that you don't need banned, on and on.  And something done about those damned video games, too.  You really picked a winner, Iowa.
