Do not underestimate the power of fear, especially when dealing with naive people.

I actually think we're winning.

The media can blab all they want, but the internet gives people the power to look up their own info, or to share good videos/articles/etc, with speed and to reach out to a mass of people.

I think this 19 Executive Orders is just BHO testing the waters. He's making recommendations to congress. Then he'll gauge public reaction and if he feels he can get away with it he'll do them himself after congress fails to act on them. But if he sees trouble and doesn't think the people will back him, then he'll do nothing and blame "inaction" on a republican house.

When given time to allow emotions to calm, and given time to hear out the arguments for and against guns, the reasonable person chooses to keep their guns.

Sure, the die hard anti's will always be anti's. And us enthusiasts will always be Pro-Gun, but it's the people in the middle that have never really taken a position on it that will be the deciding factor.

And I think we're winning that fight.
