Good point. NOW you see that the "gun nuts" do have limits. They are being reasonable and it is the ultra-left that is being unreasonable by stating that they want to ban all guns.
Perhaps more gun laws are reasonable. I would be wiling to discuss them. Here is the biggest problem, though. The VAST majority of gun crimes are by peole who are either not allowed to own guns or shouldn't have been allowed to own gun if the laws were actually enforced.
So the question becomes, why I would think another gun law is goign to help, when the guns laws we already have on the books are not beign enforced.
Further, I would remind people that the idea of the slippery slope. It is easy to say there is no slippery slope when we basically agree that the founding fathers were correct for creating the 2nd amendment. If we can not agree on this basic point, then I must fight you at every battle, because while I might lose on some common sense gun laws, at least I will ahve delayed your overall mission to entirely destroy my rights.
