I was listening to WLS this evening and Roe Conn had Michael Steele, former RNC chair on the Celebrity Hotline. Mr. Steele said something that I think showed the hand of the Beltway Insiders. While talking about universal background checks and that people seem to be in favor of them (no one I know, but then their sample must be looking at gun-control folks only), Mr Steele instead said that people are in favor of universal gun registration--a far different thing. But it shows how this issue is being pressed incrementally and that it is right to hold the line here because the slippery slope is being wetted even as I type this.
