What if Wayne sat down?

What if Wayne LaPierre decided "...to sit down with a group of people that have spent a lifetime trying to destroy the Second Amendment in the United States?" Let's game that scenario:

Wayne meets with President Obama, the Brady Campaign, and all the other gun-controller/banner groups and agrees with his 3 ideas. They get made into law and then? Well, Baldr Odinson of Ceasefire Oregon said it best: "I think this is a great first step." In other words, there are more steps. The next time some drug-addled loon shoots up a school, restaurant, or store, the vulturous, gun-controllers/banners (I refuse to call them "gun safety advocates" when none of them teach gun safety) will circle and they will crow for more steps. Second steps, third steps, fourth steps, fifth steps... Where will it end? What is the final step? Is it something like England where you have to beg your local sheriff for permission to own even the most primitive and ineffective of firearms? Isn't that what we have in #2 Brady Campaign ranked New Jersey? Assuming that being ranked #1 is a final step, is it safe to say that New Jersey's numerous infringements on the 2nd Amendment are close to the final step? Is that why Brady Campaign member, Joan Peterson, can't tell us at what point "Commonsense" ends and infringement begins?

Personally, i'm glad Wayne decided not to sit down. Wayne knows that taking that first step only sets you up for the second step, third step, and so fourth, inching us closer and closer to the final step.

Your commentary was spot on, so I had to link to it:

None of the gun control advocates I've asked are willing to compromise on a single existing law.

As you said, they see nothing but more laws.

They are desperate, in my opinion, for civil rights advocates to sit down with them. They desperately need a compromise in order to bolster their base and stop losing ground.
