Under our constitution, the people are considered to have rights unless the government can provide some proof they should be taken away. In essence, the Dem gun bill, much like the asset forfeiture laws, shifts the burden of proof of innocence to the citizen rather than the government. Imagine the possibilities were the government to apply that standard to any criminal proceeding. I understand many are so keen on getting guns off the street that they don’t care whether they turn constitutional principles on their head to achieve that goal. I believe the shift in the balance of power from the citizen to the government is far more dangerous than random killers.
