Gus Cotey Jr.has an article up over at Jews For the Preservation of Firearms Ownership titled “The Seven Varieties of Gun Control Advocate.” The article is very well written, and I feel that the introduction sums things up very well (emphasis added).
Despite a massive amount of historical evidence to the contrary, there is a substantial body of Americans, many occupying positions of influence, who contend that the abrogation of the Second Amendment is the quickest path to domestic tranquility. Since this is as absurd as advocating blood-letting as a cure for anemia, it would seem advisable to question the motives and mentalities of the gun control advocates themselves.
In my observation, weapon prohibitionists can be broken down into seven major categories. Even though their motives may vary they all pose a mortal threat to liberty.
