He applies that lesson to the gun-control mania infecting D.C. and the Deep Blues* (but not the rest of the country.)
...What the gun control politicians don't see is that the ultimate effect of their actions -- should they be successful -- will be to create a much bigger black market, this time for deadly weapons. They'll convert a much larger part of the population into a friendly sea for that black market. They'll alienate the people from the police, and thus make large parts of the nation hostile to their own authority.
More to the point, they [the people] won't be wrong. The People are the sovereigns, after all, and they are free to decide when the government no longer legitimately represents them.... The 2nd Amendment is encoded in the Constitution. Violations of your right to do what you want with your body isn't as plainly unconstitutional as infringements on the right of the people to keep and bear arms....
As the man said: "Go ahead. Make my day."
*Deep Blues = East- and West-Coast large cities, the Press, most Intellectualoids, most college campuses and faculty and all of the population of the Deep State.
