    New York's Combined Ballistics Identification System quietly died recently due to a tight state budget. The program was a complete failure from the start, but that never matters within the politics of gun laws until the money dries up.

    This New York Post article offers what I believe is an honest view of the root of gun control legislation:

    Cuomo whacks Pataki gun law

    Conclusion: Who cares if a program works or not as long as you get the benefit of appearing to be doing something about crime. Facts be damned, it's always a success until budget time.

    That is the plan of the Progressives in both parties. Give the appearance of doing something, all the while actually making it worse!

    Reality of limited resource? Maybe. But the ruling class can always steal more money. The reality of liberty-loving peoples is something they will never acknowledge.

    This is almost like the guy in Canada who put in the Shotgun registration, only to get rid of it because it didn't solve any crimes and cost the country 30 million a year or some such.

    When you take emotion out of these conversations and just use facts it becomes way more clear.
