FWIW, I understand some NY legislator wants a 5 round limit on all guns, including revolvers, and another wants to include all repeating guns (including revolvers and all repeating rifles and shotguns) in the "assault weapon" category.
So much for those who thought their hunting rifles were "safe".
When negotiating one always asks for more than one knows one will be given, making the other side "Compromise" on this and that, like hunting rifles and shotguns, maybe wheelguns and very limited semi-auto handguns, maybe ammo registration for purchase again as well.
You know... Common Sense gun laws to stop gun violence, until the bill is passed and signed into law. THEN they admit it will do nothing to quell "gun violence" but it's a start.
Or words and techniques to that effect.
A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." - George Washington, January 8, 1790, First State of the Union Address
