Compromise?

Am I the only one that heard about a compromise?? They just want to do universal background checks, unrealistic, but it will end he madness! What do you all know about this?

Naive in the extreme.

The 1934 NFA didn't end the madness.

The 1968 GCA didn't end the madness.

The 1994 AWB didn't end the madness.

Cities and entire states that deny basic ownership rights don't end the madness.

Magazine limits didn't end the madness.

Entire lists of "Approved" and Unapproved" guns didn't end the madness.

We've already been compromised more than enough.

"Compromise" is a word that they use to get you to take one more step down the slope.

The compromise is we get to keep some of what we already have, and suffer a few more infringements.

We've got running discussion on the matter in another thread. The details you need are there, and we'll update as we know what comes down the pipe.
