When the Democrats were in office, 2008-2016, the allegation often heard was: Because of a few insane people, everyone should be denied gun ownership.
Now that the Republicans rule the roost, one can hear: Because of a few unstable people, everyone who takes pain medication should be monitored and controlled, perhaps denied.
In either case, it is politicians trying to control the behavior of their fellow man.
What kind of testimony is this for a “Free” country?
