A number of years ago, well-known gun blogger LawDog had a long post regarding compromise on gun rights. He used the analogy of splitting a cake wherein after a number of compromises we are left with just crumbs.
I was reminded of that analogy recently when I saw his infographic which put this analogy into pictorial form. It came up with regard to our recent demonstration outside of Sen. Thom Tillis’ office in Raleigh. Tillis was one of the prime architects of the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act which saw those of us who are pro-rights get nothing and the other side get “a good first step”.
I have to agree with LawDog. We have been reasonable for much too long. The urge “to do something” never results in either good policy or one that is actually effective. With the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Bruen, we need to go on the offensive which it appears groups like the Second Amendment Foundation and the Firearms Policy Coalition have started to do.
Since I’m speaking of LawDog, I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that he published an anthology this spring called Ghosts of Malta. In addition to LawDog, it has stories by Jim “Old NFO” Curtis and Kelly “Ambulance Driver” Grayson in it. I’ve read it cover to cover and highly recommend it. The anthology is available in both book and Kindle format on Amazon.
