I might go along with universal background checks IF the other side agrees to eliminate the $200 tax and registration of "silencers", short barreled shotguns and rifles, destructive devises, etc., and allow the manufacture and registration of new "machine guns". I'd even let them keep the $200 tax on the full auto firearms. They'd also have to agree that this would be the last gun law they'd ask for. I know they won't agree to this so I'll keep fighting against the background checks.

I see that Gottlieb makes much of the public opinion polls in favor of universal background checks. If we leapt to accommodate to every unfavorable opinion poll we'd have already turned in all our guns by the end of the 70s.

God forbid we fight against the conflations, lies, and fear-mongering upon which that public opinion has been built. I mean it's not like that's ever worked before.

...and in the mean time we certainly know that a committed minority can never hold off the political will of an uncommitted majority.

Right Gottlieb?

No. Not one more "compromise", not ONE.

"Universal background checks" will do nothing to stop the Jared Lee Loughners, the James Holmes', and the Elliott Rodgers of this world- who all PASSED their background checks.

NO MORE COMPROMISE WITH THOSE WHO CLOAK THEIR AGENDA OF DEVELOPING A MONOPOLY ON THE USE OF FORCE IN ALTRUISTIC GOALS OF PUBLIC SAFETY.

Remember- these are the people who have enacted 2A violating, odious "law" after "law", to the tune of there now being over 22,000 gun laws at the city, county, state, and federal level, claiming each and every time that they deserve leeway to violate our unalienable human rights for "the greater good" of public safety.

With that much of it, with almost 100 years in which prove its effectiveness, if "gun control" worked, we would be crime free.

If "gun control" worked to enhance public safety, how in hell is one more new "law" going to do so in light of historical facts that it, in fact, does NOT work.

Its a BS public policy and a joke of a public safety initiative, and anyone willing to let their guard down for a minute and even consider for a second "compromising" with these slugs ought to consider just how weapons laws have worked for those subjected to them in recent AND past history.

NOT ONE MORE STEP ON MY RIGHTS.

Despite whatever the moron majority may want, out rights are not subject to their mob rule. PERIOD.

We have FACTS ( http://www.gunfacts.info/ ) on our side and we have the MORAL HIGH GROUND of defending our natural, unalienable human rights.

DON'T GIVE UP THE FIGHT- GIVE NO GROUND.

In fact, its time we started firing up our own side with pushes to REPEAL previous acts of "gun control".

STARTING with that evil nazi- plagiarized GCA68.

So, we’re supposed to compromise further, with people who gave themselves permission, to shit on the constitution and bill of rights. With people who then say that we should talk to their courts, stacked with their appointees, for redress that it is a foregone conclusion will not EVER be allowed.

Fuck them. Fuck their courts. Fuck their laws. Fuck ANYBODY who compromises so much as a millimetre.

Get the idea out of your heads that the system and it's members are going to rescue you and your country. They serve themselves and believe in foreign ideologies.

You are the cavalry and there is no one else but your brothers and sisters.
