    D.C. gun-control debate holds national clues

    Gun-control legislation got a much closer look over the past year in the wake of the Connecticut school shootings — but the District and gun-rights activists have been fighting their own battle on the issue for the better part of a decade.And the experience in the nation’s capital is likely to provide clues to how the gun-rights debate is likely to go in 2014.Lawmakers on both sides of the issue on Capitol Hill consistently cited parts of the Supreme Court’s 2008 District of Columbia v. Heller decision that struck down the District’s long-standing handgun ban to bolster their positions. But the man behind the case and other gun-rights activists continue fighting to chip away at stringent gun laws in place in the District and elsewhere, as gun-control advocates try to stiff-arm the efforts and claim their own victories where they can.

    Been in this fight hard since the 50's when my granddad bought me my first NRA membership, and nothing has deterred me yet. Death is the only thing that will slow me down. :D

    Absolutely! Don't underestimate the social progressives... they will not stop their march to strip the nations, law abiding, citizens of their 2nd Amendment Right... EVER. They do it through subtle, little steps which most of us, busy with the other challenges of life, simply discount as a "oh there they go again" attempt. But one only needs to look at CA and that states history concerning personal firearms to see how it can be successfully done.

    Interesting for you to know that I do not consider myself a gun fanatic... own many more fly rods and, sadly, more accurate with them as well... but, I value my constitutional rights and believe that allowing those to be "picked apart" is the slide to tyranny. My grandfather, father, brother and I did not wear the uniform of the United States armed forces to allow anyone to screw with our rights.

    every new generation needs an example to look up to. I'm convinced I would not have the rights I still have today if it wasn't for diehards like you. Keep up the good fight real American... sometimes when you never look back you dont see everyone who stands behind you ;)
