65. Great post!

 

Thank you benEzra.

I was starting to think I was the only one trying to come to the middle.
I also have a better understanding now of the current holy war on guns.
My opinion has definitely been swayed to supporting some of the pro-gun points.

I like your "old" proposals and they have more detail than my knee jerk solutions.
Good ideas but as you mention, and I have learned, the media and Bloomberg powers are after more than just gun control filters.
What you have proposed is closer to the middle.
What is being peddled in CA and at the federal level is more of a total ban.

Great summary on the current state of the gun control war.
That helps me to better understand the situation and why there was not alot of love for me, when I first posted.

gejohnston also mentioned similar back-stabbing type laws, that were eventually used against gun owners in the future.

Sigh....so I am talking with the wrong people to change direction on this subject.
The anti-gun groups, need to move to the middle and start proposing ways to improve safety while protecting the privacy of gun owners.

I'm glad I posted here, this has been very enlightening, since I must admit, I was drinking some of that dam gun control koolaid and didn't realize it until I came here.

I still believe something needs to get done, but now I realize most of the work is on the anti-gun side to change their ban everything proposals and respect the gun owners rights.

Subtle change could be a good thing, if done properly.
