Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.
The last comment in the article pretty much sums it up....."gun prohibitionists are not interested in facts, but only in delivering an emotional message to reach their goal of a gun-free Utopia."
Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.
Totalitarians honestly believe that their definition of happiness is correct for everyone, and if you're differs you are simply ignorant, wrong, and need to be forced to comply. They will enslave and degrade you "for your own good", meaning they do it with the approval of their own diseased consciences and to stroke their already overinflated egos. Just as they will never cease pushing to move the legal line towards totalitarianism, we also must never stop pushing in the other direction to maintain/restore our liberty.

The dead even split on Gun Control would seem to work in our favor as the antis have some committed activists and many short term interest occasional activity. Gun owners tend to be active consistently.
The normal part is that they never stop trying to get our guns. Under the radar for a while maybe, but they never stop.

We've been having our 2nd Amendment rights assaulted since 1934, and if one wishes to argue, 1776. I think it was in the early 1770's (history buffs help me out here) that the British tried to make the Colonists register their muskets, outlaw importing more firearms (much like the 1968 GCA) and then outright confiscation. Look what happened. It is definitely time for us to start pushing back.
I think it ran out of steam. When you constantly throw the same reasoning and justifications out at people it loses it's shock factor. Just wait till the next big incident. Here's a better question: What's currently got their attention and how long will THAT last?
The best way to stop incoming fire is accurate outgoing fire.

The second question... are we willing to accept having a "normal" on gun control?
It should be a strange concept. We have a long way to go.

Gun control is too much of a political issue to ever be normal. There are too many opinions and pressure groups on both sides of the fence. After a period of head butting and no progress both parties take a break to lick their wounds and regroup. I'm sure it will return with a vengeance. good luck to us all
Don't let the facts cloud your judgement
Normal was many years ago, and not returning any time soon !
