Despite hinting he didn't see the need for guns in coffee shops, Velshi stated it was "better for businesses not to weigh into this unwinnable debate."

    "Let's face it: taking a stand either way would invite more protesters than customers, and inviting more people to try and prove some point, rather than people trying to buy your product. And isn't it better to save the steam for the lattes and not get your customer steamed? Let's all have a grand- grande dose of tolerance."

    Wow! MSM starting to talk tolerance for the bearing of arms? This suggestssome positiveprogress!

    Maybe CNN is starting to realize that battling againstSecond Ammendment rights is un-winnable. Maybe...

    That still suggests that the symptom is 'cured' and not the disease.

    Maybe they're giving up this angle, maybe. Enemies of Life and Freedom will just find a new way.

    The problem with a quasi-victory in our field, is that we now have lost the devil we know. Many will sit back and relax saying 'we've won!' And this respit will be used for the next wave, and we don't know that devil or where he will come from.
