I don’t mean to make it seem like I’m suggesting we ignore the machine gun issue, pretend it doesn’t exist, and not talk about it.Â Far from it.Â Â There’s a big difference between talking about the issue, and getting on CNN or another national news outlet and saying “Why yes, we support in legalizing machine gun ownership.”
All I am saying is that it’s not time right now to have a national debate about this. Â That is step 32, and we are on step 4 or 5 at most. Â So if we want to move the ball forward, what do we do?
I’ll leave the comment section of this thread for folks to offer constructive suggestions on how we can get from our current state, up to being able to seriously petition congress and the public to agree to liberalize the current Title II machine gun provisions.Â Remember that the starting state is the vast majority of the public, and Congress, being hostile to your idea.
