You need only look at Britain's surging knife crime and knife control laws to understand what happens when you ban guns and attempt to ban the right of self-defense itself. The Independence Institute's Dave Kopel says it's a slippery slope that ends in confiscation and banning anything that can be used as a weapon. If Bloomberg has his way in Washington state with ballot initiative 1639, every semi-auto rifle will become a semi-auto assault weapon. Owners will be required to register, with their medical records subject to yearly review. Dave says Britain is our future if we let it happen. British gun control was a bad idea in the American colonies; fortunately we have the NRA to peacefully fight for our gun rights today. Originally aired on Cam & Co 08/28/18.
