    There are a lot of us liberal Democrats that want to see effective gun control that reduces the firepower available to crazies, wants to track every gun, and wants to make sure every sale is legal. We are often the ones who most want to preserve the shooting sports for law-abiding people. This is not a win-lose situation, as the NRA crack-pots like to paint it. We can preserver the shooting sports, and the law-abiding citizen's right to self defense, and significantly reduce accidental and felonious gun deaths.

    Look at Switzerland. People own a lot of guns, even military-style semi-automatic sporters, using high-capacity magazines, and they have almost no gun crime, because their laws are so strict.

    BTW - Remember Fast and Furious? The sort of Straw-man purchases it was trying to crack-down on would be impossible if we required all gun sales to be registered by both parties, just like the sale of a car here in Washington State.

    Workers of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your shackles. It is by the picket line and direct action that true freedom will be won, not by electing people who promise to screw us less than the other guy.
