The prohibition quizGive the following quiz to just about anyone on the left, and they'll probably know the correct answer:
Question: The banning of medical marijuana and recreational marijuana has caused which of the following effects?
A) The growth of a huge underground economy of illegal sales that pumps billions of dollars into the hands of drug gangs.
B) The filling of America's prisons with non-violent criminals who don't really deserve to be in prison.
C) The creation of a massive, tyrannical War on Drugs, complete with armed DEA raids on citizens' homes and the growth of an armed domestic agency that terrorizes many Americans.
D) All of the above.
The answer, of course, is D... all of the above.
Everybody who has even half a brain still functioning knows that prohibition drives trade underground, where it ultimately results in MORE crime, not less crime.
So how does the radical left now think that gun prohibition will work? How will gun prohibition not drive the entire gun economy underground? How will gun prohibition not result in the imprisonment of yet more innocent people who only sought to purchase tools of self defense by whatever means were available to them? How will gun prohibition not result in the massive expansion of the government's "War on Guns" crusade that wastes billions in taxpayer dollars and accomplishes nothing?
If the War on Drugs is a failure, the War on Guns will be a bloody catastrophe.
