    Dear Left, No More Gun Control

    They won't ever learn, will they?
    The answer is no, no new gun control laws.
    Even after James T. Hodgkinson opened fire on Republican members of Congress, the answer is no, we are not open to a discussion on more gun control. Nor will we be.

    Gun owners gave up some of our rights with the National Firearms Act of 1934 and the Gun Control Act of 1968. What did the left give?

    In 1989, President Bush banned the import of various firearms. the ban is still in effect. What did the left give?

    We gave on the Federal Assault Weapons Ban. Without much of an outcry from Democrats, the ban expired in 2004. You had your assault weapon ban, and you let it expire. Do not cry about sour grapes more than a decade later.

    I've been asked many times why civil rights activists (and gun control is about a civil right) will not compromise with the gun control activists. I heard a brilliant response to this on Gun Talk a long time ago. It was something like, we want all gun control to be abolished but we'll compromise on just repealing 1/3rd of those laws.

    Of course, like the gun control types, we'll come back next year and ask for another compromise. We'll ask to repeal all gun control laws but compromise and repeal another 1/3rd of the gun control laws.
    You can have free speech or you can have income taxes but you cannot have both.
