Yes, Director Johnson has now taken upon himself the burden of deciding who is, or is not, entitled to his or her Second Amendment rights under the Constitution.
Whew! Glad that’s off our plate.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Tuesday that passing gun control laws is now “part and parcel of homeland security” in an interview on CBS This Morning.
In the segment which was flagged by Politico, Johnson said this was the first time he had vocalized such a belief publicly. President Obama and congressional Democrats have made a renewed push for gun control laws in the wake of the Orlando terrorist attack on a gay nightclub that left 49 people dead.
Johnson, who made a series of media appearances Tuesday, was asked by left-leaning host Gayle King what it would take to get gun control laws passed in the United States.
“What will it take to move the needle when it comes to gun control?” she asked. “People thought it would be Sandy Hook.”
“You’re asking me about gun control. I am not anxious to plunge into yet another difficult, contentious issue like the ones I already have,” Johnson said. “I do believe, however, that meaningful, responsible gun control is now part and parcel of homeland security. It’s critical to public safety, but we have to face the fact that meaningful, responsible gun control has to be part of homeland security as well, given the prospect of homegrown, home-born violent extremism in this country.” …
I should take the opportunity here to thank George W. Bush for giving us yet one more leviathanic government department to protect us from ourselves.
Where would we be without the untended consequences of Republican FUBAR’s?

I’m just going to leave it there.
