Beware Trojan Horse Legislation
By John Caile
As most of you know, the battle to protect our rights is a war without
end. No matter how many wins our side racks up, our adversaries never
give up. They regroup; they change tactics; they look for any soft spot
in our defenses. But surrender? Never.
Two recent examples are so-called universal background checks and red
flag laws. Both of these initiatives have been packaged with
innocent-sounding terms (such as “reasonable” and “common sense”)
designed to sway the general public. But their clever marketing has also
had an influence on some gun owners.
I talk to a lot of gun owners at gun shops, ranges and local gun shows.
Lately, what has disturbed me is the number of times I have heard a gun
owner express a willingness to consider some of these dangerous
proposals. Many of these people simply seem to be terrified of being
labeled “unreasonable” or “right-wing” just for opposing bad laws.
I get it; with all of the coverage of anti-gun-rights protestors and the
events that feature sympathetic survivors of school shootings, people do
not want to feel like they are on the other side of children, even
though they obviously are not. After all, we also have children and
grandchildren whom we want to keep safe. We just do not agree with the
solutions the gun-control activists are pushing. But a disturbing number
of gun owners have begun showing weak knees.
This is not surprising. It has long been known that the most effective
propaganda is emotional imagery combined with a basic theme. Then, once
the template is created, it is repeated over and over until it becomes
stuck in the public mindset. A silly but excellent example is that
annoying Kars for Kids commercial. You hate it, but you have heard it so
many times that you cannot get it out of your head.
Thus, terms such as “common sense” and “gun safety” are endlessly
parroted by both anti-gun legislators and sympathetic journalists. They
have learned that gun control does not resonate with a large majority of
Americans, even those who do not own guns. But the idea of keeping guns
out of the hands of those who should not have them is a theme that is
almost impossible to challenge. But challenge we must by repeatedly
contacting our local, state and federal representatives as well as law
enforcement. Just be sure to keep your arguments simple and short:
“Universal background checks will do nothing to stop criminals,
terrorists or the mentally deranged from getting a gun. Gangs such as
MS-13, the Crips, the Bloods and others will not suddenly decide to buy
their guns legally. Such laws will only turn otherwise innocent citizens
Note also that because such registration schemes are doomed to fail, the
failure itself will be used as an excuse to up the ante to their real
goal: national gun registration.
The same goes for red flag laws, which sound reasonable but are rife
with the potential to be abused by police, a hostile neighbor or a
vindictive ex-spouse. Just this past month, Colorado began considering
House Bill 1436, which would allow family, roommates, household members
and law enforcement to have an individual’s guns taken away without a
So, make your voice heard. Oppose any red flag laws that do not include
full constitutional due process protections — no exceptions. Otherwise,
you or someone you know might become an unintended consequence of a
badly written law.
Stay safe. Stay involved.
