Dead, absolutely not! It never will be, but it looks like the knee-jerk reaction is dieing down.

The fact is since the late 80's/early 90's gun control has been steadily trending in our favor. A large majority of the public supports the right to own guns. Very few politicians are actually supporting all this media hyped anti-gun legislation. They know support of ant-gun issues is not good for their careers.

There are folks that want to ban all guns and they are getting a LOT of attention right now, but they are fighting a tough battle.

Gun control is NOT dying. Look all around you in all 50 states. What is going on at ALL levels, federal, state, county and city??? Gun control bill after gun control bill is being pushed in one form or another. Not all of them will get passed and become law but several HAVE.

Look at the State of New York, tell the gun owners up there it's dying.

Look at the State of Colorado, one more vote on one single bill and Megpul is moving out of the state. Tell the gun owners over there it's dying.

The Minutemen won at Lexington and Concord was the war over then??? It had just STARTED.


It's not succeeding either. Yes, many states are trying to pass their own gun control despite the fact that SCOTUS has already ruled them to be unconstitutional.

Firearm and firearm accessory companies moving out of liberal states is NOT a defeat, it's a strategic WIN for conservative states. Let the states who did NOT vote for Obama have the jobs and taxes.

I don't see all roses. But I'm cautious optimistic with the way this is all playing out.

Debate over gun proposals rages across state (Georgia)
Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The Newtown school massacre has provoked fiery debates at the federal and state levels on whether to scale back the rights of gun owners.

But in Georgia, the focus isn’t entirely on curtailing gun rights.

Many of the more than two dozen gun bills filed so far in the General Assembly are pushing for expanded access to firearms across the Peach State.

This legislative session, following the shooting of 20 students and six adults in a Connecticut elementary school, the debate has been amplified to the point that both sides have the potential to drown out each other and get nothing done.

“I have a real disposition against legislating to exploit a tragedy,” House Speaker David Ralston, R-Blue Ridge, said last week during a legislative forum hosted by the University of Georgia. “You may see one or two of these measures move, but I don’t think you’ll see a dramatic shift.”

Across U.S., in Georgia

The debate comes amid national deliberation over gun safety. Congress is expected this week to begin considering legislation that could include expanding background checks for gun buyers and increasing penalties for those who buy guns for criminals.

The debate is also playing out in state capitols across the country. In one closely watched debate, Colorado legislators are considering a package of gun-control bills that include banning weapons on college campuses, requiring background checks on all gun sales and limiting ammunition magazines to 15 rounds.

In Georgia, the pieces of legislation under consideration cover familiar topics, such as whether students should be allowed to carry guns on college campuses and should assault weapons be banned in the state altogether.

But other issues have risen to the top, including expanding mental health checks for gun owners who want to “conceal and carry”

As many anti-gun measures as there are on the books, there are just as many bills on the books to protect (even broaden) gun rights.

As of last Friday, even the ultra restrictive Illinois will now allowing concealed carry as their prohibition on concealed carry was ruled unconstitutional. So as of July 1(pending appeals) concealed carry will be legal in all 50 states. Just 5 or years ago there were several states that didn't allow it.

I think the Kenyan is testing the waters. In typical fascist fashion he didn't waste a tragedy to push an agenda but he wanted to see how winds were blowing. If he had numbers he would have advanced (and may still) quicker but knowing he don't have the support he needs from elected officials and citizens he may let this rest for a bit.

BUT- it's NOT over.

No wonder Obama won. Those same people said he would NOT win.

We might as well call the NRA and tell them to back off and save our money since it will be wasted fighting nothing.

Attorney General Horder said the other day on a ABC News interview that he thinks the AR and high cap mag ban will pass so since he's always been wrong we might as well call our Representatives and tell them to forget the so called anti-gun bills, they are never going to pass anyway so don't waste any more of the time and to go back to the real job and get a budget passed. That really would be easy since we've passed one every year, right??

Awe, c'mon Wildcat. Nobody said it's time to give up. I just posted some good news. We're winning. Not sure how that means it's time to surrender?

IT's TIME TO DOUBLE DOWN and NOT LET UP \:\)
