What “commonsense” really means

First, I see that left-winger Jeff Sharlet retweeted Congresswoman Yvette Clarke:

She claims to want “commonsense gun legislation.”

The latest scheme is to stop gun-sales to those on no-fly lists. It’s a dumb idea, seeing as how no-fly lists usually affect honest flyers more than terrorists. It can be justified for air travel, but barely. There is no due-process. We put up with it because flying isn’t actually a right.

Then Sharlet allows a little bit of the truth to slip in:

He knows it’s crap that would accomplish nothing. The word “commonsense” means nothing at all to these people.


Via Ed Driscoll at Instapundit:

Congressman John Lewis, who took part in the sit-in, was
“Once Erroneously Placed on No-Fly List He Wants to Use to Deny Due Process.“

Gun control is all a sham.
