We're going to have to take this one step at a time, and the first step is necessarily - given the political realities - going to be very modest. Right now, though, we'd be satisfied not with half a loaf but with a slice. Our ultimate goal - total control of all guns- is going to take time ... 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."
-- Nelson T. Shields III, Founder of Handgun Control, Inc., New Yorker Magazine, July 26, 1976
This is what they want, only despite their name they want it for all guns, not just hand guns. Their ultimate goal, from their own mouths is "Total control of all guns."
Shields talks of taking our rights one slice at a time, and I can't help but think of Lawdog's excellent piece on "Compromise."
