10. "Absolutist stance"?

That's pretty rich when almost daily I hear gun controllers say, "This is what we want -- for now. We'll go for more later."

When New York passed the "SAFE" Act, the most restrictive package of state gun laws in the nation, one lawmaker said "And there's more to come." And yet we're told that there is no slippery slope.

The gun control movement seems to be unaware that "compromise" means that each side gives a little. Taking less is not equivalent to giving a little.
