The governor of California just signed a batch of anti-gun laws. No need to comment. It is the Democrat hysteria that Obama has unleashed to avoid reality and knows no reason. First it will have to survive the batch of anti-gun laws on this year’s California ballot, which might lose; next the U.S. Supreme Court could never support any of it if the DC-Heller case becomes precedent.
I pointed out that a 45 mph speed limit was observed by drivers on the Golden Gate bridge because they could see that two opposing lanes of traffic were dangerous. Nobody observed the same speed limit on the S.F. Bay Bridge where the traffic was one way.
In Connecticut a law requiring gun registration was passed and 80% of the gun owners ignore it. We will see the same in California, for 8 million people.
This creates a population of outlaws. This happened in the 1960’s when young people found that the anti-pot laws made no sense, especially in a society that drinks alcohol in excess. The hippies became outlaws; sex became free and crime in the U.S. rose steadily from 1965 to 1995. We will get that again.
The flip side of the coin was that the pot business created a great deal of underground money which generated the greatest effusion of new businesses in American history.
So we will get an outlaw society like Mexico and Guatemala with high crime and a new sub-culture of small businesses.
