  •  Someone's got to be mighty damned beholden to (0+ / 0-)

    somebody.

    Let's face a couple of fundamental realities:

    1. The NRA is right when it says the only people to have guns will be criminals if you criminalize gun ownership.

    (Duh -- it's a truism)

    2.  People who want guns for self-protection generally want to protect themselves from criminals.

    Put 1 & 2 together and you've got a great big shiny

    3. Measures that protect the rights of law-abiding citizens while making it more difficult for criminals to get guns are bound to be  A GREAT BIG WINNER.

    And, as an aside, things like reasonable magazine limits:

    4. Measures that let you watch a movie without worrying about being the 29th person shot from  a 30 round magazine are likely to be winners as well.
