There Is No Gun Confiscation Plans...

Until there is.

A 'Slippery Slope' is a logical fallacy where an argument is taken one step at a time to a ridiculous conclusion.  One could call this one except for the fact that over and over politicians have proven they cannot be trusted and WILL eventually try and ban guns.

Take a look at Sebastian TBFKASIH's post on what NY is trying to pass:
 Currently, licenses for handguns are issued by the county in which the gun owner lives. With few exceptions, licenses are valid for life. .... once a license is obtained, there is no subsequent check to determine whether the holder is still eligible to own a gun. Governor Cuomo will propose a single standard across the state to ensure that appropriate checks can be run to bar convicted felons and other prohibited people from possessing firearms.
 So handgun owners will now be regularly shaken down for money because the state is incompetent in managing criminals.
Governor Cuomo will propose tightening our assault weapons ban and eliminating large capacity magazines regardless of date of manufacture.
So they will now ban property they previously promised was grandfathered.  Chicago is another perfect example.  Under Daddy Daley, a handgun registration was implemented for 'safety'.  Then they simply closed the offices and started raising fees.  Defacto ban.

Incremental steps like this will continue until you get politicians saying things like :
ban semi-automatic guns and “start taking them” from owners who refuse to surrender any illegal firearms through a buy-back program.
and have the proposal taken seriously and workable instead of by a fanatical crackpot.

So next time you hear about 'compromise' or 'reasonable gun control', just remember what they're really after.

And don't forget Cuomo wants registration too!

If you don't like the phrase "slippery slope" then call it momentum. While each incursion is a distinct event, each successful step against makes it more difficult to resist.

You will see a death by 1000 cuts. It isn't paranoia, it's the observation of previous successful yet sublime tactics and is only realized too late.

Since when is "slippery slope" a fallacy? It seems to be a good predictor.

For gun sellers, it's okay to sell gun just make sure that the person you're selling with is responsible enough and perform a background check for that person to ensure that person is not mentally ill. Let's not put all the blame to the gun sellers or to the gun owners, but we should give attention also to the law makers and who should implement the right law.
