Today's JPFO Alert notes that DeLauro's "voluntary" gun turn in is to be INvoluntarily subsidized by the taxpayers, or, more likely, their children and grandchildren. And great-grandchildren. And great-great-grandchildren. And . . . you get the idea.
If DeLauro wants to buy your "assault weapon," tell her it can only be paid for in blood--and she can't afford it.
Oh--and the other difference is that Swift's "Modest Proposal" was satire. Thrasher, in his modest way, seems really to want his to happen.
