Since the allegiances of the man who attempted to shoot Rep. Steve Scalese are known, why don’t anti-gun fanatics advocate disarming all supporters in America of Bernie Sanders. No one doubts who the shooter was, where he’d been, or what he did.
If anti-gun fanatics really believe what they say, disarming Sanders supporters would be a good place to start, more credible now than, say, disarming Muslims or young people, incidentally setting a good example if they succeeded, but perhaps also demonstrating that opponents to gun-confiscation in America aren’t all yahoos.
The heuristic value of such efforts should not be lost.
