Do you honestly expect that these folks who studied Mao, Marx and Lennin will be willing to compromise?
Look this isn't about safety or human suffering. All of that went out the widow with "Fast and Furious" didn't it?
It's about an agenda, it is about control, it is about the media.
If you believe in freedom, dont sell it an inch at a time to someone who will only want more. When has compromise worked with these folks?
