Gun Control – The Line Has Been Drawn
For those that believe nothing is going to come out of all the bills that will be introduced concerning firearms guess again. Something will come and most(if not all) of us will not be happy campers.
America’s past history shows bad news is coming. Also whatever comes will be permanent in nature. The following are examples of why it will come:
Due to the violence perpetrated during the Capone, etc., years the public became outraged.
Outcome: National Firearms Act 1934
Due to the assassination of JFK the public became outraged.
Outcome: Gun Control Act of 1968 (This Act was revised in 1986 by the Firearm Owners Protection Act) and the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968(The 1968 Gun Control Act was supported by America’s old school manufacturers (Colt, S&W, etc.) in an effort to forestall even greater restrictions which were feared in response to recent domestic violence.)
Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and 1995. Reason for the two dates is the Supreme Court ruled the 1990 act as an unconstitutional exercise of Congressional authority under the Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution in United States v. Lopez, 514 U.S. 549 (1995). Law was amended in 1995. The amended act has never been challenged in the United States Supreme Court.
Due to the assassination attempt on President Regan and the shooting of Mr. Brady the public became outraged:
Outcome: Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act 1993 and Federal Assault Weapons Ban 1994-2004
Now it is 2013 and there will be a bill passed into law that will not be “user friendly”(2nd amendment) to law abiding citizens the same as the Act’s that are presently in force.
The Gun Owners of America, Second Amendment Sisters, Second Amendment Foundation, and Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership. These groups believe any compromise leads to incrementally greater restrictions. These groups criticize the NRA's history of support for some gun control legislation, such as the Gun Control Act of 1968, the ban on armor-piercing projectiles, point-of-purchase background checks (NICS).
The 2nd amendment organizations, gun owners, hunters and people on forums such as this one are now being faced with a hard battle to fight. The line has been drawn in the sand by the anti-gun people and they are building up steam daily. The following is a quote by Peter F. Drucker. While it might not be the most fitting quote in a way this is what the anti-gun side is doing. The good news for them is they have free outlets sending their message They have many media outlets that are sympathetic to their movement and editorialize for free and slant many stories towards anti-gun rhetoric. Our side is going to have spend money to get the word out. Only bombarding our representatives in Congress with phone calls, letters, email, etc., is not going to work this time.
"The best way to predict the future is to create it."
--Peter F. Drucker(an Austrian-born American management consultant, educator, and author)
"One of the greatest delusions in the world is the hope that the evils in this world are to be cured by legislation."
--Thomas B. Reed, American Attorney
Second Amendment -- Established December 15, 1791
and slowly eroded ever since What happened to "..... shall not be infringed."

There is a short period of time right now when the LEFT (PROGRESSIVES = HIPPIES of the 60S, RUNNING YOUR GOVT RIGHT NOW) will push, but there are many balls in the air politically!
- Health Care - The Rates are going way up before they expected
- Oh, My, God, you mean I have to pay 2 % of MYMONEY to the Gov now.............. before Jan 31? He lied about tax increases...
It will not be the conseratives who lead to civil war. It will be the unhinged Left Progressives who have no clue on how to survive that will stike out, and then be struck down, when they realize that they far socially overplayed the cards that they dealt themselves. Word!
My Lord is my Shepherd, and I FEAR NO MAN! Amen! I will treat each man as equally as the Lord will allow me, whereas I will embrace him as a brother, or I will stike him down with vengence.

While there is credence in "it is time for us to pay close attention" to what is being talked about.
At first, of course, given all the attention the media and chest beating Hill Members have plagued the airwaves with, over the horrendous events that have taken place over the past few months. The knee jerking remakes are starting to, I'll say "somewhat" taper down. At first reports, of course. It was all "Ban the Wicked Guns"!
But it seems the more realistic firearms-under-standers, sat quietly taking notes of the senseless rhetoric the uneducated speakers spewed. On the subject of firearms, to which they knew nothing about, except. That they had a notion...no a dream, to abolish all firearms, and take them all away from upstanding law abiding citizens.
Now it seems, to me anyways. That media types like Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Jon Stewart, and politicians like Sen. Ted Cruz are starting to rebut the anti's major misdemeanor behavior.
There will be so many bills and laws and good-bad-&-ugly stuff being brought to the table that, it will become what the media refers to as a "Cluster Buck"! When there is so much going on about the same subject mater that nothing can really be done because The Hill's Floors and Chambers are clogged up with so much of the same poppycock that it could take months to sift through all the BS.
At least given the way our Government moved on the Fiscal Cliff and given these same boobs will be feeding off of one another...again...over the gun issues. Who knows what or how long it will take for the dust to settle? Who know when they start throwing all their ideas agents the wall, what poppycock will stick?
I just shook & checked my Magic 8=Ball for an answer and it said: "Check Back Later!"
But don't go to sleep, we need to stay awake and stay abreast of what's going on around us!!
