    Yep. Although the interview itself is speculative I can see this happening. Why enslave with violence when you can do it through regulation.

    Why are people surprised. He said he was going to.

    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

    I've read some things that the plan is to expand the term "semi auto" to include all sorts of things.

    Technically, a revolver could be termed "semi auto" if you're creative. Basically we'd be down to single shot guns
    The world would be much cleaner if blind people carried brooms instead of sticks.

    At communion, when the priest says "Body of Christ", I say "Thanks, I've been working out", then I grab the cracker and run back to my seat

    An amateur practices until he gets it right. A professional practices until he cant get it wrong.

    They've got us surrounded? Good. Now we can fire in any direction. Those bastards won't get away this time.

    Can anyone post a source that is a real news source? Sorry, Fox News is hardly credible.

    No more or less than any of the other mainstream media outlets. Besides, they aren't making the claim, they are interviewing a guy who says he's talked to "unnamed" sources in the administration. It's the credibility of the guy being interviewed that's at stake.

    It wouldn't surprise me but I doubt that it's legitimate. Has the administration discussed this? Probably but I doubt they'd go through with it. It's too overt and antagonistic. It would likely trigger violence or a huge fight with congress as the ATF budget gets stripped in response. I think what we'll see is more underhanded like defunding the FBI background check system making it extremely difficult to get approved. Or something like requiring ID numbers on ammunition, banning reloading, or cigarette levels of taxes.

    Your logical fallacy is: tu quoque
    You avoided having to engage with criticism by turning it back on the accuser - you answered criticism with criticism.

    So, back to my original question, can anyone provide a more credible source? Hell, any source that isn't Fox News?
