    That trend, today, will not be deterred the the same way it was in the 17-1800's. My point is that the idea that at any point you could combat this trend by citizens stock piling weapons is just not realistic. The vigilance we need is intellectual, participatory, and cooperative. What's wrong today is not government intrusion, but lack of reasoned discourse, the ability to listen, consider, and even compose for the greater good.

    He was the guy that Put what is now the Brady Bunch on the map. and Josh Sugarmann of the VPC got fired by the Brady bunch for admitting the goal was a complete gun ban

    I guess you wouldn't consider Dr King the leader of the modern civil rights movement

    Can I admit that your real agenda is to muddy the waters by pretending one person's comment settles the issue.

    my real agenda is to make sure that I and every other honest american of legal age can own easily the same weapons that our tax dollars equip CIVILIAN law enforcement officers with

    I am a professional when it comes to dealing with the gun controllers. I have debated Shields, Brady, Metzenbaum among others. And I know that they constantly deny the incremental approach. Sarah Brady told me and all of Cincinnati City council that when she got her waiting period and background check passed she would not seek additional gun control laws

    a lie

    Schumer said on the floor of congress that the ten round limit was not the stepping stone for other restrictions

    the minute it passed a reporter noted that the NRA said the AWB in 1994 was "the nose of the camel" under the tent and schumer sneered and said soon he'd show them the "Rest of the camel" including a 6 round limit

    the 1994 elections sort of but a bitch slap on that scheme-at least at that time

    sorry boo,, I have dealt with the anti gun scumbags too long to listen to people like you claiming that gun bans are not the real agenda.

    I'm sure you will miss this, but I've already admitted your real agenda. Using your logic, it's settled now. We all know what you really want.

    Yes what I want is honest and open. a major difference between you and some like you who pretend "you don't really care about" this issue and pretend you are not anti gun yet when all your posts are taken as a whole, you are a major league basher of gun owners and gun rights

    No, I've already admitted to your deception. By your logic, that's all it takes.

    I said you wouldn't get it. But I merely used your logic.

    Your posting history on guns leads me and others to question if you can actually apply logic in your posts on this subject.
