It is a STEP. Do you think the anti-gun lobby would have disbanded had they pushed through registration? If they push through a high capacity magazine ban, or assault* weapon ban, they'll declare victory and call it a day? No, they will not. Ever. They just move on to the next step, and then the same dumbass sheep will be crying about how the NRA isn't being reasonable. Don't believe me? Are you at work right now? Try lighting up a cigarette and see what happens. Then remember that the anti-smoking craze started with removing ads from TV and banning smoking on airplanes back in the 70s. Look where we are now. That's what reasoning with hellbent extremists gets you.
That's why these vermin must be fought tooth and nail, on every issue, without fail, from now until the end of ****ing time.
