Exactly what is "an open and honest conversation about guns"? [View all]

I keep reading that phrase from the gun-control side. Exactly what do they mean? People who are interested can already post on internet forums, post comments to newspaper articles and editorials, write letters to the editors, make and post video on youtube without any restrictions. Newspapers, magazines, and TV stations can do editorials and special news reports. Various organizations such as Brady, VPC, NRA, SAF, GOA, and a bunch of others can, and already do, issue press releases, update their web pages, and spam the internet. All of that stuff is already being done in abundance.

What more, specifically, does the Democratic Party and the Federal government need to do for such a conversation?

I have a feeling that "open and honest conversation about guns" is gun-controller code-speak for introduce new gun-control legislation and try to get it passed.
