Raymond ends by saying "No more gun laws, ever." In the comments, people suggest repealing a goodly number, including the licensing of suppressors.
The discussion didn't used to be along these lines - I remember a day when there was a willingness to compromise. That started to evaporate in the 1990s, with the "Assault Weapons" ban, Ruby Ridge, and Waco. It's grown ever since. I think that Raymond is entirely correct that a combination of repeated lies and criminal activity by the government agencies tasked with enforcing gun laws has poisoned the well.
To well-meaning people in the middle on this, don't take this personally. I very strongly believe that most of these people are good folks who want to do something to help. I also think that very few of these have much familiarity with firearms, and almost none have paid much attention to the repeated lies from the gun control side. Raymond put together and excellent introduction to firearms policy fraud. If you're a middle-grounder, I highly recommend that you take ten minutes to read it, because it will give you a very good understanding of why people say "No more gun laws, ever."
