  •  Okay, but the thing about that is... (3+ / 0-)

    ...the coalition of those of us calling for most/all the measures I listed above would probably fracture pretty hard at the idea of a full-on ban, and in a democratic society (or this reasonable facsimile we got ourselves), that means it's not especially likely to happen.

    And when you add in the fact that most RKBAers here* seem to support at least part of that agenda, it makes sense to pursue an incrementalist approach and figure out where we can reach consensus about ways to reduce gun misuse. That's why I tend to reject those pushing a pro-gun absolutism as either thoughtless or paranoid, and why I'm grateful for those here who can admit to holding a middle position or at least resist demonizing everyone who marches out of step.

    (* - not to mention most of the people I spoke to the last time I happened to be in the same area as a Maryland Shall Issue/NRA rally)
