Two imperial dreams died in Russia, Napoleon’s and Hitler’s. Another dream, of stopping and dismantling the Roman Republic, died in Italy, not by the brilliance of generals, but by scorched earth tactics. In the wake of the Sandy Hook shootings, Diane Feinstein is proposing a total ban on all handguns other than revolvers, fingerprinting of owners, and a national gun owner registry, with yearly mandatory payments. Since Senate Democrats don’t go to the toilet without Obama’s permission, it is safe to say this is Obama’s handiwork. Certainly Democrats in say, West Virginia, Virginia, and Pennsylvania are not afraid of the NRA, gun bans, and any backlash from White voters. Leading one to suspect they are not afraid of elections period, either planning widespread fraud or suspending them indefinitely as Democratic Governor of North Carolina Bev Perdue once proposed. Regardless, Feinstein’s bill is destined to die in the House (it will likely pass the Senate, as Harry Reid has told the NRA to go to hell). And Obama will simply enact it by fiat like everything else he’s done.
But its one thing to enact gun bans. Its another to make them stick. And still another to negotiate the difficult terrain that making ordinary White (and Asian) citizens subject to periodic ethnic cleansing mob action by Blacks (and Hispanics) and daily low-level crime cleansing creates. Obama may have just invaded Russia. And he is sure to face Fabian style scorched earth.
