No, there isn't really any middle ground. Those who what guns banned want them all gone and they have stated this. Their published plan includes incremental reductions until they are completely outlawed. War has been declared on a long standing American way of life and you can't fight a war "a little" because the other side is coming full force. How serious do I believe the anti gunners are? Serious enough to find and convince a mentally ill person to shoot up a school so the result could be used for political gain. They would justify it as sacrificing a few now so they could save thousands later. The ends justify the means for these people. This is easily within the capability of the president to accomplish. This is probably impossible for you to see from the valley in the middle but stand on the mountaintop on either side and you will see clearly that this is either something you would do or that you could see the other side doing. Where do you see yourself standing when you pick a side?
Here are some other thoughts on the middle ground:
Revelation 3:15-16 I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. -- Jesus
or in case you aren't religious
Walk on road, hm? Walk left side, safe. Walk right side, safe. Walk middle, sooner or later get squish just like grape. Here, karate, same thing. Either you karate do "yes" or karate do "no." You karate do "guess so," just like grape. Understand? -- Mr. Miyagi
Are you suggesting these mass shootings are planned by anti-gun advocates? That would take quite a lot of planning and coverup for none of them to become discovered in the investigations afterwards. Wow. I'm seriously shocked that you think this many, this regularly, could be planned.
If you want to quote Jesus, then please don't forget the other things he said like, If someone slaps you, turn the other cheek. If someone asks for your shirt, give him your jacket also. He who is without sin, cast the first stone. Love your enemies. Love those who persecute you, those who spitefully use you.
The lukewarm referred to above was the churches' worship of Jesus, NOT gun control.
You want to force people to choose? It's another false choice, another false argument. Either guns without control, or no guns at all? False choice. There are very few things in life that are either/or. Most things in life have a nice, big, wide middle ground. Before conservative brains explode, think about this. I'm not talking about the difference between right and wrong, I'm saying most things are not as simple as you would like them to be.
You want abortion outlawed, then tell me what you do with all the unwanted children.
You want complete gun freedom, then tell me how you protect those who keep getting killed by guns.
You want no control over anything you do, then who makes sure natural resources are not destroyed, banks honor their purpose, Wall Street doesn't rape senior's retirement income, etc. etc.
All I hear about are "rights." Whatever happened to responsibility?
