That mindset is not compromise; it is appeasement. Compromise requires both sides to give a little to reach an agreement. And compromise is not always possible. How do you compromise with someone who wants to kill you? Allow them to only beat you half to death?

May the shackles rest lightly on his wrists...

Started myself with a clean slate, because it goes against my nature to block input on here. But the last couple weeks had me second guessing that decision.

Yup. BFA is where these comments belong, hence the lack of forum activity there.
I'm not sure if tin foil is now code for having a principled stand or strong rhetoric, but I'll take whatever he thinks it is over what he's selling.

All the NRA said is it would "consider" legislation requiring bump stocks to be regulated under a Class 3 license like full autos! Calm down everyone! :roll:

No, actually they said "The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations."

Heck, Leaving the house is "is inherently dangerous". Seems going to church is also.
