The 'slippery slope' of 'gun control' is clearly very real, but not the point

We do not care if banning regime change rifles and "high capacity" magazines is as far down the slope as the gun prohibitionists want to go (and it isn't, anyway). Maintaining our access to these arms is worth the legal danger of defying such laws. If that defiance is met with the armed might of the government, it will be worth fighting and dying for--but even more worth killing for.

If we must make the slippery slope argument (and that argument does have some value--for pointing out to hunters who don't care about AR-15s that the next step will be banning their scoped bolt-action hunting rifles as scary "sniper rifles," for example), we need to stop pointing to a total, outright, confiscatory ban as the end point. The "government monopoly on force" secured by such a ban is instead merely the means to an end. What is that end? Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership can tell you. [More]

That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend.
