Is Vice President Harris being set up to fail again, as she heads up the new Office of Gun Violence Prevention? Or is this the one case where she has an adequately intelligent staff to do actual harm to America’s right to defend themselves as enshrined by our Federal Constitution’s Second Amendment and Iowa’s 49th Amendment? 

Depending on who you ask, she will either muck it up completely like she has everything else she touches, or possibly the goons from Everytown and other Organizations will finally have the funding and power they need to impose on the rest of America the mess they are making in New York and other “blue” states. I tend to think she might appear to get something done for the gun controllers, but it will not turn out the way they expect. I think there are two main reasons why.

First, with the large number of minorities and women who are new gun owners as a result of the overreaching by the nanny state during Covid, I see this as a ‘bridge too far’ in the current political climate to expect all those gun owners to just lay down their arms like the Governor of New Mexico recently advocated.

Just the Facts, Ma’am

The second is the logistical nightmare that prohibition would bring. Back in 2018, I wrote an article for about the problem that searching the United States for millions of firearms would present. Here is part of that article:

… Let’s ask them about the logistics of finding and seizing the over 500 million firearms in America. 

There are 199,672,842 acres of land in just the lower 48 states. Let’s do the math:
199,672,842 acres Divided by a maximum of 250,000 trained searchers (it will take time to screen, hire and train them).

That would be 798.691 acres per searcher (45,560 square feet per acre), if they worked alone at least three days per acre = 19,168.59 hours based on eight hours per day of work (union contracts after all!)

At normal full time employment rates of 2000 work hours per year, it would take 9.58 years to search just the lower 48 States for guns, assuming the entire search force would actually survive the process, unlike back in 1776 when American’s just shot the British troops who showed up to take their arms and ammunition…

Leftists must think that math does not apply to them, or perhaps it’s a problem only those schooled in common core math can solve. We can all hope that the recent rejection by a Federal District Judge of the California magazine capacity limit as unconstitutional is another example why VP Harris will eventually fail. The law is on the Rights of the People’s side. 

Regardless this is another example of why each one of us needs to be Ready at All Times and never forget that those gun control dangerous quacks are still playing a long game, but then so are we at IFC. Help us by joining or renewing your IFC membership here today.
