The people and pundits who want to control guns in the U.S. are willing to settle for Plan C. Here are the plans:
Plan A - Disarm the criminals and the law abiding citizens;
Plan B - Disarm only the criminals.
Plan C - Disarm only the law abiding citizens.
They want Plan A, but they can't get it. They should want Plan B, but that's an impossibility. No laws can achieve that. So they are willing to settle for Plan C - disarm only the law abiding citizens.
If only they could see the folly in what they seek.
