    I haven't been keeping actual score nationwide, but it seems the gun control crowd have a renewed energy. I have no doubt this year is going to require more participation and organization than years past.

    Correct. The year of gun safety.

    • All guns are always loaded.
    • Never point the gun at anything you are not willing to destroy.
    • Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on target (and you have made the decision to shoot).
    • Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
    As gun owners, we have a responsibility to act, well, responsibly. All to often, the ammo (pun intended) that those anti-freedom groups get comes from us. Every time we screw up in a public fashion, they have something to rally around. It isn't right, it isn't fair, but it's reality.

    So let's retake the term and really make this a year of gun safety (and gun shooting, and gun collecting, and gun sports)!

    They're probably organizing false flag attacks and even paid stooges that start things at political rallies.

    My tinfoil hat may be a little tight, but I wouldnt put it past those SOB's.

    Buy what you can now. I know thats the typical panic rhetoric but when legislation comes, it'll come faster than me and a night with Eva Mendes.

    Actually couple this with the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals (San Francisco) saying that the Second Amendment does not include the right to carry concealed weapons in public... That self defense is not a strong enough reason to be issued a concealed weapons permit, that basically you need to prove your in immediate danger...

    Even the courts cannot agree on the meaning of the Second Amendment...

    Lord help us...

    "Safety" is political speak for registration and follow on theft of your property. Like in "Australia" which is there code word for ban.

    Funny you bring up the Kali CC permit thing, Back when I was still an OryGun resident, I had to prove a definite need to the Sheriff's dept in order to apply for and be issued a ccw permit. Now days, I would just have to take a class, pass a test, and send in a fee and receive my permit! Cept Kali is using this simply to deny our 2nd rights!!!

    I will ensure that this year all of my firearms are secured just like last year and none go out of the house by themselves. I wouldn't want them taking the initiative and harming somebody.

    "The right to keep and BEAR arms shall not be infringed"

    Well, at least we can all rest easy.. We can now use any bathroom we want.. So we have that goin for us. :confused:

    Hey my guns are always safe! I keep them locked up when they're by themselves, and I never let my favorite one out of reach. In fact, I like it so much, I'm literally attached to it at the hip.:D
