Caldara: Beware media malpractice around ‘ghost guns’

My very favorite social media meme is a picture of a car’s manual-transmission gear shift. It reads, “millennial anti-theft device.”

Wouldn’t it be weird if people who’ve never driven a stick shift tried to outlaw them? Well, that’s the anti-gun movement.

One of my favorite moments of gun-hating ignorance was when Denver U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette wrote a bill to outlaw what she called “large capacity” magazines. At a town hall meeting she was asked what would happen to all the magazines that are already out there. She said, once people shoot off the bullets and empty the magazines, they’ll be used up and thrown away.
