Why is the guy above me voted to 'Troll'; he brings up an important point about the gun control "debate?"
Every time a liberal wants a new gun control law, they say that gun owners need to "compromise." You see that word? Compromise. You'd think it would mean that each side gives a little and gets a little, but when it's used in reference to gun control it only ever means, "you lose some rights today, we'll leave the rest for now, but we'll be back to take them later." There's NEVER any actual compromise offered. No offer to repeal any of the myriad of useless and ineffective gun control laws that don't impact criminals and only burden people who want to legally own a gun.
How about taking suppressors off of the NFA? You shouldn't have to pay a $200 tax and wait 8 months for a safety device.
Repealing the Hughes Amendment? Remind me how many legally registered machine guns have been used in crimes in the last 80 years. (Spoiler: 2; both by cops)
Making the USPS accept ammo shipments?
Anyone care to tell me the useful law enforcement purpose of the handgun import points system? Spoiler again: it was contrived by Democrats in the 60's to keep guns out of the hands of poor people.
How about allowing out of state gun sales through any FFL dealer? Spoiler: Democrat law from the 60's to keep blacks from getting guns.
How many crimes do you think have been prevented by 922(r) parts compliance rules? I'll just go ahead and tell you it's zero.
What about the ban on import of "non-sporting" guns? I can buy them legally if they're made in the USA, but not if they're imported. That makes sense how?
And yet, none of that is ever offered as a real compromise. This is why gun owners take an absolute stance against all new restrictions. History has shown us that the moment they're passed, the next push for more restrictions begins immediately.
