When All You Can Do Is Limit the Damage

Signing of the Gun Control Act on 22 October in 1968 with President Lyndon B. Johnson
Signing of the Gun Control Act on 22 October in 1968 with President Lyndon B. Johnson

United States – -(AmmoLand.com)- What we are about to talk about is something that may annoy some of our loyal readers here at Ammoland. Well, ignoring this potential situation is something that is not in the best interests of securing out Second Amendment rights in the future. In fact, not discussing what to do in this situation is one of the biggest helps we can give to the likes of Michael Bloomberg.

What is the situation we potentially face? Well, it’s one where the circumstances and/or landscape are worse than our present situation. To review, we have lost the House, and Jerrold Nadler is leading attacks on our rights in the House Judiciary Committee. Thankfully, we have a pro-Second Amendment Senate and a pro-Second Amendment president, so we do not face the prospect of legislation passing.

That may not always be the case. A little over a quarter-century ago, we faced a different prospect. Anti-Second Amendment forces controlled the House, Senate, and White House. The push was for the Brady Bill and a semi-auto ban. The balance as to how bad it would be rested on nominal Second Amendment supporters in both parties who faced difficult balancing acts.

For some, it was how to support the Second Amendment in a way that would not cause them to lose to an anti-Second Amendment extremist in the next general election. For others, it was how to support the Second Amendment, and not be primaried by an anti-Second Amendment extremist. So, to do this involved coming up with something that was less onerous than what might pass if Second Amendment supporters just said, “No.”

The result, in 1993, was the passage of NICS. Now, it could have been even less onerous had the NRA succeeded in getting NICS to override all state and local waiting periods and licensing schemes, but the fact was, the intent was to create a permanent, federal waiting period, and that didn’t happen. This is not to say NICS doesn’t need fixes and improvements, but when you think about the whole scam of waiting periods, NICS largely short-circuits the arguments for them.

A quarter-century prior to Bill Clinton’s first year in office, the NRA faced a similar situation. Lyndon Baines Johnson wanted a federal licensing and registration scheme, which is the keystone for what made the confiscation laws passed by New Zealand and Australia workable. In 1968, the NRA worked to make sure the legislation that would pass in the wake of the assassinations of Robert F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. did not have that, and succeeded.

In essence, the “second problem” HCI activist Nelson Pete Shields described in 1976 would have been solved if not for the NRA’s successful efforts to limit the damage in 1968. When Franklin Orth said the bill “could be lived with,” he wasn’t endorsing it. He was saying, “We did what we could to keep this bill from getting too bad.” Similarly, look at Lyndon Johnson’s statements as he signed the bill and hailed its passage. You think he was happy that licensing and registration weren’t in the bill? He knew that he’d been beaten in the long game.

The other benefit damage control can have is that it could prompt anti-Second Amendment extremists to kill a bill. This happened 20 years ago in the wake of the Columbine shooting. After the NRA’s damage-control bill became the preferred version in the House, anti-Second Amendment extremists voted it down, teaming up with “no compromise” Second Amendment supporters.

If we are to truly see the Second Amendment prevail, Second Amendment supporters must recognize that there is a time for a stand, a time to go into damage control mode, and times to let the tactical and strategic differences between NRA and GOA work in synergy to achieve victories, whether it is passage of pro-Second Amendment legislation, or defeating a bill that would punish law-abiding gun owners for crimes and mass shootings they didn’t commit.

I understand the “long game” scenario but when do you draw the line??? Which other Amendment needs the long game? As for the hardliners, on the flip side, as another commenter said, what about leadership, air support, air defense, logistics, comms? Without those, everything said is a moot point….

@the Grey Man Then let me pose a question to you. How do you defeat a group of people who cant be intimidated, bribed, coerced, or ordered into doing what you want? The answer is you can’t. The only option left is to kill off the entire group if your goal is control. That is why the American form of revolution works. What starts as 3% grows when the undecided group see’s what is going on. You’re position also automatically assumes the entire military, which would be outnumbered, would be on board knowing that their mothers, fathers, little brothers and… Read more »

Hmm, there are a lot of people commenting here who would rather die on every hill that would ultimately lead to losing the war instead of simply accepting a few tactical losses in order to win the war. I suppose we can use them. A little known part of history is that the people who died at the Alamo disobeyed an order to abandon the fort. See, Sam Houston knew the Texans could not win a head-to-head fight with Santa Anna’s army. He did, however, know that Santa Anna’s army could not sustain supply a supply line deep into Texas.… Read more »

@Bob999 Tactical Losses? So over the last 100 years, all those losses were tactically necessary? Please explain why they were necessary. You see, we have Rights, and we have a Constitution which restricts Government from messing with those rights. Why is it in your view necessary that we give up something which was already ours from the moment we were born, which those taking it away never had the authority, power, or right to do so in the first place? Explain yourself. Explain why you think a slow process of minor transgressions which ends in a loss is better than… Read more »

Yeah I don’t see you guys up in arms over passage over any of those laws. Plenty of Americans have high end AR-15s and scores of ammo but don’t use them. Where is that 2nd Amendment when you need it?

Yet another apologist article for the NRA by H. Hutchison. Compromise is FAILURE when it come to ANY Constitutional rights and there is no excuse for it. The NRA under LaPierre is corrupt and does more harm than good. If LaPierre goes, the NRA has a chance to recover and become an organization that can defend the 2nd Amendment successfully, but only if LaPierre and his cronies, sycophants and toadies (like H. Hutchison) are shut down and/or gone.

All ‘gun control laws’ are un-Constitutional. Article 6, U.S. Constitution “The Constitution…shall be the supreme law of the land”. THAT is referred to as “The Supremacy Clause”. Therefore, no legislative law, Executive Order or local decree may limit, deny, change or modify the Constitution. Article 6 continues “All laws must conform to and be made pursuant to the Constitution”. Therefore, any legislative law, Executive Order or local decree not in 100% harmony with the U.S. Constitution, is null & void. Americans could own any firearm of any type they wanted until the 1934 NFA. The U.S. Congress fearing the WW1… Read more »

Harold Hutchison has been a well known apologist for certain gun control agenda’s for quite a while. Lately it looks like he is trying to cozy up to GOA members, but we aren’t buying it. We already know him for what he is.

He spams articles urging gun owners to compromise with those on the left intent on destroying the second amendment while whispering words of soothing about tactics, strategy, and necessity at the same time. He’s been a castrated animal for a very long time now.

He has zero reputation here, and is essentially the village idiot of Ammoland.

He knew he would not live long enough to run for president after JFK served 8 years because of his heart problems. It was common knowledge in Washington and the USA that LBJ HATED Kennedy. LBJ was a crook, phony and many other things none of which can be printed here.

Yes, sometimes all that can be done is to mitigate the damage. However, once that has passed then you work to reverse and eliminate the damage in following legislative sessions. This is not what the NRA has historically done. They have accepted the restrictions as the new norm and only fought back against them when one of the smaller groups has gained traction and too much publicity. In addition, in too many cases the NRA has actively worked against small, gun rights organizations instead of supporting them.

It’s all well and good to say that occasionally damage control might be all we can do, but it is unacceptable to say that damage control is all we should ever do.

In between they have occasionally defended our rights but the NRA’s interest is strictly in fighting, without ever winning — because fighting brings in the big bucks.
