The problem is that your suggestion is playing right into their hand. That's exactly what they want you to do.
Most here understand the sentiment of "let's get at least...," but in reality it would cause much more damage in both short and long run. It's the "unintended consequences" of such a semi-surrender that can cost us dearly in the future.
In today's climate, it's especially important to stick together and get to the point where we take all these bans off the table once and for all. We might/should get that on magazine capacity from the silly NY law. With the number of these "ban semi auto rifle" types of proposed laws, many will have massive loopholes that can give us an opening to, once and for all, get a ruling that "cosmetic features cannot be banned."
