Does not agreeing with the DNC on gun control make me less of a Democrat? [View all]

One thing I seem to see popping up here from time to time is the concept that if a person doesn’t support the DNC party platform in every, single particular specifically:

We recognize that the individual right to bear arms is an important part of the American tradition, and we will preserve Americans' Second Amendment right to own and use firearms. We believe that the right to own firearms is subject to reasonable regulation. We understand the terrible consequences of gun violence; it serves as a reminder that life is fragile, and our time here is limited and precious. We believe in an honest, open national conversation about firearms. We can focus on effective enforcement of existing laws, especially strengthening our background check system, and we can work together to enact commonsense improvements--like reinstating the assault weapons ban and closing the gun show loophole--so that guns do not fall into the hands of those irresponsible, law-breaking few.


That person couldn’t possibly be a true progressive.
Are we really that close minded that we must be in absolute lockstep? Does disagreeing with the bolded part of the above statement make me “Less progressive than thou”


EDIT I realize we are in election season if, in the host's opinion this topic falls outside the TOS for this season I will completely understand if it is locked /EDIT
