    And to understand what different people think, to understand their concerns, listen to their ideas and convince them.

    But at the end of the day, what's most important to actually accomplish change and when that involves people unwilling to compromise and those that subvert the open process to defeat it, we also must be willing to "stand our ground" so to speak or we fail to stand-up for the victims and for a civil society.

    So I think it's just as important to define the outcomes we want and some clear objectives to accomplish, and then negotiate and adjust, but not to lose sight and not to quit until things get done.

    I have no doubt that some actors, particularly the NRA, will use every tactic and trick to protect the status quo or grab more ground and defeat any gun control measures because that is what they do and get paid for and they will use as many convenient fools as they can muster, including fair-minded opponents.

    That should not be allowed to happen.
