    It appears you assume anyone not mostly in lockstep with you on this issue is "extreme."  This is precisely the type of comment that discourages real discussion...unless you prefer only to talk with others that agree with you.

    Let's be clear...no matter how how many pies get thrown here, it's likely not going to change the outcome on gun legislation.  

    The NRA leadership...fools and tools that they are...are going to fight tooth and nail to protect those who are paying them, and the people who manufacture and sell assault weapons surely are among them.  I believe common sense will prevail and assault weapons and high capacity magazines will be banned.   I hope so.

    Private ownership of firearms is not going to be taken away...and for good and sufficient reasons that I choose not to enumerate because those reasons are self-evident to anyone who is familiar with world history and chooses to pay attention.

    •  You assume a great deal. (0+ / 0-)

      I never mentioned taking away private ownership of guns.  I neither recommend it nor think it would ever happen.

        •  And you saw confiscation there? (0+ / 0-)

          I don't think so.  Go to gogogoeverton's current diary where there is a real live conversation happening.  My anger results from blatant attempts to stop conversation.
