Lets say 99 out of 100 times you buy gas from exxon you get a tank full of bad gas. When you buy gas from Shell you only get 1 tank of bad gas out of every 100 tanks. Upon knowing this, you decide to boycott Shell for selling you bad gas. Why?
Lets say the government gets involved because they can't have oil companies selling bad gas. The government says something has to be done, this bad gas is damaging our expensive beloved cars. So the government decides to ban Shell.
These actions wouldn't raise red flags? As if the government had something against shell before the bad gas started flowing?
Pistols are responsible for the vast majority of firearm deaths in America, so why is the government bent on banning rifles?
