  •  Be aware of the straw man (5+ / 0-)

    and the mutual exclusivity arguments

    There are elements within the Democratic party who will tell us they want rifles and pistols confiscated.  They want a complete prohibition of arms
    This dairy seems to suggest that some significant polulation of the Democratic party wants to knock down doors and confiscate guns without concern to the civil ramifications.

    The answer to reducing gun violence is not per se confiscation of guns, or endorsing a "right to bear arms" without consideration of the militia clause.

    Gun control  is not a mutually exclusive choice the way it is presented here.

    The answer will lie in between with registration, training,
    and banning certain high capacity munitions among other needed restrictions.
