    I love this one:

    In Detroit, murders and gun violence is rampant. But a 10 minute drive North and you across the border into Windsor (Canada).
    Windsor is a 2 minute drive through a tunnel or over a bridge SOUTH of Detroit !!!

    And this one:

    The British got tougher on gun ownership after mass killing sprees by mentally ill people - including one deranged soul who decided to annihilate a classful of kindergarten children.
    How's that working out for them?

    Canada has completely different demographics than the United States. We have ten times as many people and are ten times as diverse. It's like comparing apples to hex nuts.

    I guess he realized that he has way too many problems already and that he does not need other one. We can always hope.

    I believe, He understands that the hornet's nest of gun control could be very very bad for Him and the Dem. party.
    NOT LIVING IN FEAR, JUST READY!!!
    I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
    nor the arrow for its swiftness,
    nor the warrior for his glory.
    I love only that which they defend.

    This is my ravorite quote from the article:
    '“We expected a very different picture at this stage,” said Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, a gun control group that last month issued a report card failing the administration in all seven of the group’s major indicators.'

    I think gun owners expected a very different picture as well, resulting in a massive buying spree. Welcome to the world of unintended consequenses!
    Not that we have nothing to worry about:
    “The watchword for gun owners is stay ready,” said Wayne LaPierre, chief executive of the National Rifle Association. “We have had some successes, but we know that the first chance Obama gets, he will pounce on us.”

    It's fun when they lose!

    But above all, HE expected a very different picture as well. The massive firearm-buying spree and big amount of new concealed carry permit was something not possible to misunderstand. Hopefully it will continue in the same way.
