The left will get gun control in 10 -20 years, by Lion of the Blogosphere.
Liberals control the MSM, so if they make gun control their #1 priority like they made the gay stuff, they will get what they want in 10 to 20 years, no matter how extreme it may seem today. …
Gun control seems a lot less extreme to me today than gays marrying each other seemed in the 1980s.
This last generation of culture has really shown to me that people really are whatever elites want them to be. They really believe whatever elites decide, and push, onto them. If elites somehow decided to push anti-gay marriage starting tomorrow, in 20 years people would change their minds back.
I’ve spent a lot of time thinking that people are going to be pushed too far-whether affirmative action, or gay rights, or drug liberalization, or gun rights, or whatever. But there is no reason to believe that. Everything in my experience suggests that moral and political battles are battles between elites: the people just do and think what they are expected to do and think.
