The fact is the gun banners really don’t care about the truth. Their real goal is the complete ban on all firearms. The only reason they make distinctions is to slip restrictions by one increment at a time.
10-4 on that. To paraphrase Eli Wallach: “Truth? We don’t need no stinkin’ truth”. hussein gives a Jan deadline with the “if you need me, (not really) I’ll be telecommuting from Hawaii. You know, where I was born.” Yup, we’re “perfectly clear” on that.

"I'm convinced that we have to have federal legislation to build on. We're going to have to take one step at a time, and the first step is necessarily given the political realities going to be very modest. Of course, it's true that politicians will then go home and say, 'This is a great law. The problem is solved.' And it's also true that such statements will tend to defuse the gun-control issue for a time.
So then we'll have to strengthen that law, and then again to strengthen that law, and maybe again and again. Right now, though, we'd be satisfied not with half a loaf but with a slice. Our ultimate goal total control of handguns in the United States is going to take time.
My estimate is from seven to ten years. The problem is to slow down the increasing number of handguns sold in this country. The second problem is to get them all registered. And the final problem is to make the possession of all handguns and all handgun ammunition except for the military, policemen, licensed security guards, licensed sporting clubs, and licensed gun collectors totally illegal."
