If by that you mean we need to make concessions, you are mistaken. Recent polls indicate that younger voters are much more pro-gun than are the baby boomers. Many in Congress who were recently strident in calls for more gun control have become much more subdued. I expect that is partly due to the realization that younger voters might start questioning their votes; upcoming elections for members in pro-gun districts is another factor; the massive rise in NRA membership still another; and the multiple grass-roots opposition efforts springing up perhaps the biggest factor.
There is a difference between dragging feet, and taking a firm, principled, organized stand.
If you are not a gun control supporter, then you are a defeatist, Alx.
