Disarming Americans No Easy Task

by JASmius

Reportedly the now-even-more-"confident" Barack Obama, his illegal Unaffordable Care Act having been illegally upheld yet again by the SCOTUS, his race war finally escalating and perhaps already won with the Dylann Roof/Confederate flag kerfuffle successfully bullying "white America" into preemptive surrender, and the SCOTUS having forced sodomarriage on the country, is now moving towards his gun confiscation endgame.

But even here, even now, that would be a herculean task, even for a demigod:

Almost a third of American adults own a gun, but the rate varies widely by State and tops out at almost 62% of people in Alaska, new survey data show.

Gun ownership was closely tied to "social gun culture," wherein family and friends also own guns and think less of non-gun owners, researchers found. [emphasis added]

A rather wonky way of describing the Second Amendment, that.  Rather like an anthropologist analyzing a South American cannibal tribe.

"Considering the presence of deeply rooted gun culture and the estimated number of guns in the U.S. to be 310 million, we (suspected) that social gun culture is associated with gun ownership," said lead author Dr. Bindu Kalesan of the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University in New York.

Translation: "We've concluded that people who own guns do so because they like guns."  Ah, the depth of academia,

"This association was strong even after removing the effect of other factors such as presence of gun laws and gun deaths," Kalesan told Reuters Health by email.

Translation: gun owners believe in the Second Amendment no matter how much we tried to "cure" them of it.

Which is precisely why confiscating 310 million guns is going to be such a herculean task for the Obama Regime and its minions.  Even with police state tactics,

Expect the demonization of gun owners to ramp up dramatically in the near future.  Kind of like the massive artillery bombardment that typically precedes a large military offensive.  And then they'll move in.

Exit question: What will it take to force Boehner and McConnell to cave on passing gun confiscation legislation?  Or will they be bulldozed incrementally?

On second thought, maybe it's a better idea not to ask, as we'll no doubt find out to our chagrin soon enough.
