we have the bastard State Rep. Dan Muhlbauer, D-Manilla, in Iowa:
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!'
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.
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
Muhlbauer said he doesn't know how the Legislature
would go about prohibiting children from playing video games he finds
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.
