“…Society should draw lines. What do you need an assault weapon for, if you're going hunting? That's overkill. But I don't think that means you go to a total ban for those who want to use gun for skeet shooting or hunting or things like that. But what's the point of passing gun laws if we're not going to enforce them? If you want to talk about gun control, that's where you need to start. We've got 300 gun laws on the books right now. At the end of the day, it's about how we enforce the law.”
Once again we see a focus on objects instead of behavior. Gun control has never and will never work to curb crime because it purports to regulate inanimate things instead of human activity. Furthermore, one should never have to prove a need for something, so long as possessing it doesn't infringe on the rights of others.
It appears that the GOP is seeking to paint itself as a moderate party. Once again it's failed to learn the lesson that when it cultivates conservative values, it wins elections, but when it tries to appeal to moderates and liberals, it loses.
"The Stupid Party" moniker is apt.
