No Way is spot on. It's classic misdirection, and a very simple tactic. They can't take our guns, they can't outright censor, (or at least be caught red-handed doing it), they won't take a womans right to choose what to do with her own body.
What they can do is is far more nefarious, which is nibble away in tiny increments so you don't miss your rights until you realize one day, while talking with your grand-kids, how wonderful things were in the "good ole days". I was a government employee of sorts for quite a while... sneaky sunuvabiches.
Quick to judge, quick to anger, slow to understand. Ignorance and prejudice, and fear walk hand in hand.
