  •  Why must this be a binary issue? (5+ / 0-)

    Why must one be either "pro-gun" (opposed to any restrictions on private gun ownership) or "anti-gun" (opposed to any private ownership of firearms)?

    I support universal deep background checks, liability insurance, mandatory safety training, and more regulation of firearms ownership generally, but I oppose any outright ban on private gun ownership.

    I'd be willing to wager that for most proponents of sensible gun safety measures, the reason they aren't pushing for an outright ban on guns isn't because they're "compromising" for political reasons; it's because they honestly don't favor an outright ban on guns.
