It may seem unfair - perhaps akin to cripple-hopping - to characterize Democratics as afflicted with learning disabilities, but they certainly present the appearance of such on a remarkably consistent basis. It seems that feelings are in many cases more important than results; thus they end up falling prey to the Law of Unintended Consequences as a regular occurence, and few things more effectively illustrate their cognitive dissonance in this regard than their deep affection for imposing bans on whatever dislike happens to strike their fancy. As an example, many deeply fear guns - irrationally failing to understand that, fundamentally, a gun is little more than a specialized hammer. For cognizant and prepared individuals, it's possible to capitalize spectacularly upon the fears and dislikes of Democratics as a whole:
Thirty-six hours after the Obama administration banned importation of the classic brand of AK-47 assault rifles as part of sanctions against Russia, a Maryland dealer specializing in the weapon took stock of its inventory.
There was nothing left.
Democratics love their sanctions; it's so much easier than actually doing anything. Of course, it's not merely the Russians and sanctions and stuff; Democratics have been pushing harder and harder for "common-sense" gun restrictions (although common sense is quite obviously a quality with which they lack even passing familiarity), and since pResident Obama took office, the arms industry has hailed him as salesman of the year - and not without reason:
“The great irony here is that the threat of regulation has the perverse effect of stimulating sales, and not just by a little,” said Philip Cook, a Duke University gun researcher and author of “The Gun Debate: What Everyone Needs to Know.” “The numbers are impressive. You have millions of extra sales.”
So if you want to curb those sales, as a caring and empathizing Democratic, what should you do?
Hint: what you've been doing isn't achieving your desired result. Perhaps if you do more of the same....
