    NRA's membership will quadruple in the same time it takes to empty the shelves of all the ammo, reloading supplies, upper and lower receivers, etc... Wayne LaPierre will be a happy camper. LOL

    it must mean the lobbying offices. but still LOL.

    if "assault weapons" are in fact banned, does that mean .223 and 5.56 ammo will be banned? what happened during the last ban?

    McCarthy, Fineswine, Schumer and Boxer always introduce anti-gun bills, every year without thought.

    Harry Reid is on record as saying he is against any reintroduction of the AWB as recently as just a few weeks ago.

    This will cause some debate, perhaps a week or two worth of liberal news stories. But the Fiscal Cliff is still staring Congress and Obozo square in the face, gun control or no gun control. If they fail to act on it, it'll be a punch to the face of an already fragile economy.

    Remember folks, After the Gabby Giffords shooting, nothing but talk...

    After the Aurora shooting, nothing but talk...

    I think this will play out the same way.

    I hope you're right. But I've never seen the media so aggressively lobby for gun control following an emotional tragedy like Friday's.

    That, paired with Obama not facing reelection (like your article from summer of this year, he wasn't going to do anything that would cost him votes at that point).

    Feinstein will certainly try to introduce her bill every year, but I just feel this might be the year--or 2015 if Republicans lose congress.

    For as liberal as Reid is, I'm so shocked how he's allies with the NRA and against AWBs. Why is that?

    The first line in the Back-burner article in slabside's post:

    The last time a Democratic president and a Democratic Congress banned civilian sales of some types of military-style assault weapons, it took American voters barely seven weeks to hand Republicans control of Capitol Hill for the first time in 40 years.

    I've thought long and hard about that one too...

    What I personally believe is simple.

    The media is clearly anti-gun and anti-self defense.

    Each time one of these tragedies occurs they seize upon it to promote their anti-constituional agenda.

    And each time they do it fails.

    Infact it has the opposite effect, typically causing a huge surge in gun sales. Not demands for gun control.

    This infuriates them to no end and is what is driving them to become more and more aggressive. But this aggressiveness is what is backfiring and they cant see it.

    Rants like Bob Costas gong off int he middle of an NFL game turns people off.

    Piers Morgan, who's a Brit by birth calling Americans who own guns stupid does not endear them to the anti gun cause.

    This is what is happen right now.

    The media is in melt down mode because they cant grasp why no one is listening to them.

    The more aggressive they become they more likely the message will have the opposite effect.

    In my opinion, after 12/19 and the debut of Zero Dark Thrity....the middle east will be in such chaos this too will be on the back burner.....we'll see.

    I tend to agree with this, that it makes people want to embrace their 2nd amendment rights more than ever before. HOWEVER, I couldn't see a president getting reelected with such a bad economy and such bad unemployment--it's never happened before...until this year. I'm just saying the media is very powerful right now in setting the narrative. I hope that the gun control thing is different though, as you say it is--I think it might be, but I'm worried.
