The point of banning guns isn't to ban guns. It's to reduce and minimize the associated gun violence.
Agreed. The American left realizes that banning guns won't reduce gun crime relative to the status quo. So they have decided to move on to banning only AK 47s and AK 15s. This has it's pros and cons.
If you were to go by your compromise, what has actually been achieved in this regard?
The Left gets the gun laws they want. The Right gets the abortion laws they want.
With gun control, I don't believe there is much moral reasoning in being against gun control.
AK 47s according to their advocates should be legal to defend against a potentially tyrannical government. It's a defense against potential tyranny. The left believes that a tyrannical government won't happen in the US in the near future, the right believes it is a possibility.
Not all democrats wish to ban all guns.
Most want to ban the AK and the AR guns.
A good compromise is one that pleases the most people.
Any offers? I can make a counter offer. Only legal guns are pistols, shotguns, and rifles in exchange for abortion being banned with exception of the literal life of the mother would terminate unless they get an abortion (basically to ave a mother's literal life from death).
