He says that if the pro-gun side writes the legislation, it will be in our favor. Otherwise, we’re bound to lose in the end:
âIf we write a background check bill we could write it in a way that protects our rights,â Gottlieb explained. âIf we let the other side do it itâs not going to protect our rights and itâll be a disaster because Bloomberg wants to write it in a way thatâs more than a disaster.â
âSo, the question is do we lead or do we follow?â he asked.
âI think we need to lead, something we havenât done because now weâre seeing background check measures on ballots in various states that are extremely draconian that really do attack our rights and we have a problem because the public perception is basically âHey, whatâs wrong with a background check?ââ

My problem is that the anti-gun side doesn’t compromise. They define what is “sensible” and “reasonable.” And, once the legislation is written, all sorts of bans or restrictions will be added as amendments. Read the whole thing and decide for yourself.
