However unlikely it may seem, whenever there is an unpopular law passed, someone benefits. This is the first rule of business and law; who benefits? Now ask yourself who could possibly be benefitting from all these new proposed gun laws? We already know that they don't make you safer or less likely to become a victom. We can assume the firearms manufacturers, gun Shops, ammunitions manufacturers and dealers loose big. The ordinary citizeen looses liberty and gains nothing. The police-state is furthered a bit but I still don't see that as being beneficent. Politicians do not benefit, as was shown to them after the last assault weapons ban. As much as I can see, there is only one group that benefits from this; the gun lobby, or more specifically, the NRA. The NRA will get millions upon millions of donations with every new law passed. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think I'm starting to understand how the NFA was allowed to transmorgrify into what it is today.
