    I don't know about the rest of you guys, but every now and then I get stressed out when hear that The Brady Campaign said this, or some local government agency is trying to do that... I get all upset and stressed out.

    I try and remember that over the last several years the gun community has had several victories and we continue so see more coming down the pipe. Here Massad Ayoob lays out a few..

    Good video. With the progress made in the last several years with gun laws and the fact that public opinion clearly supports the 2A I believe progress will continue and firmly believe that gun control is a losing political issue. I don't see it being an issue after the upcoming POTUS election.

    I agree that we've had some excellent gains in recent years. We're also experiencing a 'normalizing' of gun ownership that wasn't present in years past. With all these firearm shows on television, many people are realizing that responsible gun ownership is a lot of fun, and the lies they've been told about responsible gun owners are just that. I can't tell you how many more people have approached me about going shooting after watching Sons of Guns or those other shows on Discovery and other channels.

    While all this is great, we cannot let our guard down. Stay vigilant my friends ;)

    Agreed.

    Take your kids, nieces and nephews out shooting. Gotta make sure the next generation will keep the ball moving.

    Well that opens up a big can of worms huh?

    That policy by Cinemark sure kept their patrons safe didn't it?. Perhaps this POS will also be charged with tresspassing.

    Now imagine had there been a select member or two of this forum at this incident. Wonder what the body count would have been then?

    Wait a minute........ Come to think of it that probably wouldn't be a good idea. You'd likely be charged with tresspassing, endangering the other patrons and discharging a firearm within city limits.

    We're not winning... but we're not losing either.

    And it doesn't matter if Obama or Romney wins, we're still in for a big fight.

    Winning or not, we must remain ever vigilant.

    The feds tossed 2A into the meat grinder and we're winning by eating the scraps?

    I'll consider the first battle to restore 2A won when GCA68 is overturned. Everything happening now with CCW has nothing to do with the originalist meaning of 2A.

    Colorado is a tragedy, but right now, I'm more concerned with the UN Small Arms Treaty. Clinton advocated for it and the Socialist in Chief is going to sign it on the 27th.

    Snopes pretty much debunks that.

    I really don't trust Snopes. As much as the NRA pizzes me off, they are saying it's no joke.

    BTW, Obama isn't letting M1's come back into the Country either. He's a wretched sneak and a liar.

    Snopes has no vested interest in skewing the truth one way or the other. The NRA on the other hand has a vested interest in making sure the pot is stirred reularly. If you don't want to believe Snopes that's fine but if you think the NRA is a bastion of truth then I have some ocean front property in Arizona I'd like you to take a look at.

    Oh, I don't much trust or like the NRA and I'm sick of their constant trolling for money. They've also sold us out at times too. However, they're the biggest dog in the fight that's on our side.

    I'm a member of GOA, GOC, the SAF, the Calguns Foundation and just joined the Oregon Firearms Federation. I believe I need to support those fighting the good fight.

    As far as that property, no thanks. We bought a place in Oregon.

    BTW, an insult is not actually a debate tactic. :laugh:
