    Sorry Hop. I'm not plan'in on going anywhere soon. I'm just sayin that I've put it on the line, my beliefs and convictions all of my life, despite the consequences. I just believe it's not how long we live that matters, but how we live.

    Wish I had the common sense to back down, but it's just not who I am.
    Live free. Ain't no other way.

    Now, I don't think we are close yet, as some may say, but, it is comin.

    One day, it will come a time to be able to stand up and say " no" with action instead of words.

    I'd say this is a good time for a gut check.
    OK, California is in! I've talked to them all and all 7 of them are with me!

    - They used it to reduce their gun crime to 0%. Didn't you hear?

    Sarcasm heavy with toker. Lol
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    Criminals who further illegally acquire guns shouldn't be a protected class as they have been duly processed. Yet, with the Haynes decision defying common sense, nobody's mentioned Heller (2008) or McDonald (2010) which held "that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects an individual's right to possess a firearm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home, in federal enclaves" and "that the right of an individual to 'keep and bear arms' protected by the Second Amendment is incorporated by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and applies to the states", respectively.
    We citizens not only have 2A protection but, more importantly, we have political recourse to any tyrannical move to increase national registration. If we mobilize by communicating with our representatives, no matter their stand, and with our friends in government, we not only have the distinct advantage of being right on the facts, but we are a substantial force for liberty. My only hope - and I'm willing to weigh in with any friend of the court that pledges to liberty - for the next four years is that we get our day with a good national carry case under the current mix of SCOTUS justices or that there's no reason to fear for such basic liberty under a new mix. I have absolutely no fear of the UN or any arms trade treaty.

    That may be why it's an old saying.

    Correct. And notice that it is not an old Mayan saying?

    Gun control and full bands won't happen in our generation. It will happen over the next 50 years or more. It will start with an awb then move to higher taxes on guns and ammo. In the next decade the 2nd amendment will fall or be modified. At some point we will be subject to a database. I think that the way they will do it is to make it prohinpbitively costly to own a gun. Over generations gun ownership will fall and along with the databases, etc it will be easier to collect them. Our subsequent generations will be brainwashed against guns as the left is, quite frankly, better st propaganda than the center or right.

    The only glimmer of hope is that the amount of buying has sky rocketed in recent years and the hope is that young people are buying.
