The Second Time a Farce

I kept thinking that I had heard these arguments before.  “What you are asking for doesn’t make any sense.”  “The law is the law, we’ve passed it, that means you need to give up.”  “If you fight these reasonable restrictions, then you’ll damage your reputation.  It might even lead to a complete ban.”

That’s when I realized that these are the same arguments that we’ve been hearing for 30 years for gun control.  And that’s when I was reassured.  You know why?

We won on gun control.

It took us 30 years — because it was 15 years before we even knew we were in a fight.  But, decades later, we’ve won the court cases, we’ve won the legislative fights, and while there are still some vestigial dinosaurs in government resisting, they are still sinking into the tar, day by day.

The funniest part is that it is the same for gay marriage.  They won.  It’s going to happen.  What isn’t going to happen is the entire reason the Left has jumped onto this bandwagon for a small (<1%) percentage of the population — that this gets parlayed into the destruction of religion.

Those are the stakes.  We get a handle on how “into” the government is allowed to make you (by force, because all law is the use of violence) about gay marriage, or we lose the right to religious freedom.
