Believe me, I can relate to "It is never enough." This new round of California legislation is depressing.
I had a discussion with a moderate democrat friend. He didn't understand why we resisted the universal background check. I think most that are on the gun control fence feel similarly. I explained to him that we feared registration, extra fees and inconveniences. He seemed to get it.
I told my friend, Enough! I said we'd given up enough already. Like what?, he said. My friend has a inherited revolver. He is smart and probably representitive of a lot of democrats. They don't think we have given up anything yet (he was talking on the national level). These are the people we need to educate.
If universal background checks are inevitable, I'd rather see us word the legislation.
If we refuse to compromise, we should do a good job of explaining why. The fence sitters don't understand "What part of "Shall not be infringed." don't you understand?" or "From my cold dead hands.". The main steam media has made them immune to these statements.
