Nope. The NRA's incrementalist strategy is working. 2 steps forward, one step back is the long term plan and our rights are being defended right now in Congress and in the Florida Legislature.

The gun grabbers of our local socialist rag, the Tampa Bay Times, formerly the St. Petersburg Times, formerly the Leningrad Pravda, are foaming at the mouth

Reality settles over Washington with little movement on gun legislation
....reality has settled over Washington. Both parties are retreating to familiar sides of the contentious gun debate and Republican leaders are not rushing to put legislation up for a vote. The Senate next week will focus on moving a banking bill.

Editorial: Florida Legislature tone deaf on guns
....the only gun control left in the legislation would be a ban on bump stocks that enable semiautomatic rifles to fire faster. The main components would be mental health reforms that don’t go far enough, money to harden schools and hire more armed school resource officers, and a plan to train and arm teachers that would make schools more dangerous.

I repeat:

Everyone understands what can and can't happen on the currently elected chessboard. It is after 2018 and, especially, 2020 that we have concerns.

There will undoubtedly be more mass shootings of children then, too. So what is happening now is just foundational.

Go back to your comfortable senility and leave us alone.

I think you are right about the upcoming election cycles. Will be interesting to see sales of ammo and ar's start to skyrocket as we get closer to the 2020 elections....

I understand the concerns of the up coming elections, but I still believe the silent majority that elected Trump is still intact. If not we are in a world of [smilie=042.gif]

So how did Obama get elected twice? The first time with a Democratic Congress, which is how you got Obama care.

We should assume nothing.

I agree not to assume anything. That is why it is more important than ever that we all get out and vote. Hey, that is what we said about the last election because of the Supreme Court Appointment.

The long term trend, over the last few decades, seems to be a continuing diminishment of 2A rights.
More states make laws that ignore 2A, I guess it’s their Amendment 10 power to do so.
Possibly that is why the SCOTUS does not intervene?

Relentless propaganda campaigns and reduction in 1A rights of free speech means most of the population hears
only the message of Marxist ideology.

Schools teach socialism to the kids, it is no longer “We the People are the Country, the government exists to serve us”,
now they are taught “The government is the Country, we are all servants of the State, obey and you will be taken care of”.

And then there is “legislation by litigation”: Don’t like the 2A laws, sue until the defendants are bankrupted, infinite $$$ available from Soros, et,al. to do this.

The Supreme Court will hold the key. Once it's stacked 6/3 kiss our gun rights good bye. Once it finds that majority kiss most of the Constitution we know good bye. The veiled Marxists will drop the veil and we will see the transformation they have been working on for since FDR set in stone. The key to it all though is a flaccid population, totally unable to defend themselves and the consolidating ultimate power into the federal governments hands.
