    OMG, the Lib's will all get the panties in a knot

    Good for them, and common sense is right

    I believe others are following this common sense direction. We should see more and more. Don't expect to see it in states like N.Y. though.

    I love your optimism, but do not share it. While small pockets throughout the country may be pushing back slightly, thirty-six million Californians, and nineteen million New Yorkers live under bad-and-getting-worse anti-gun regimes. Throw in the other anti states, and we find about one in four Americans living with severely-curtailed gun rights.

    Never say never. "Never" is a long, long time.

    They'll never rest, not on this issue, not so long as there are People capable of resisting their "predations" (the most-offensive thing they can imagine).

    I agree with Mike on this one...
    I am glad to see many states pushing back. And It's not enough....

    OTOH, we do believe (generally) in state's rights... So, if the people in some states elect representation that curtails their freedoms for a nanny state, they have only themselves to blame. The remainder can vote with their feet, and leave the state.

    Eventually, "utopian welfare states" will collapse upon themselves. If all you have are beneficiaries, and no producers, there will be nothing to "share."

    California and New York are not "too big to fail."

    OK, I admit to being overly optimistic but it's a start.

    As for CA, NY, MD...they are lost causes and I don't expect them to ever have any common sense where guns are concerned.

    Maybe I should change the title to: Anti's lose one in the war against common sense.

    Way to go South Dakota. One down 39 states to go.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    I think you meant 56 states left, eh?

    I sit here in Palm Beach County Florida and laugh at the uproar over placing or not placing security/guns in the schools. Well us old dumb bible thumping, gun toting southern folks used a little horse sense back in 1972 and placed armed school police in our schools. Wasn't that dumb. By doing so we have missed out on the free press over the years for having very little violence/crime within our schools, not to mention the "free" government grants for security enhancements we also missed out on.
    Palm Beach County is the 13th largest school district in the US with 172,000 students. Palm Beach County has about 50,000 more students then the state of Delaware.

    NOT to worry! Personally, I like to be in an optimistic state!

    I'll beleive we are winning the war when every single Constitution hating,pro-socialist,treasonous one worlder is arrested and tried for treason.

    All we would have to do is review their voting record. Any vote that is contrary to the Constitution gets them thrown into the pot.

    Winning the battle. Not the war. The war will be raged over and over again until the antis get what they want. When we win the battles, we cannot let our gaurd down. They will hold their tongues until the next round
    No trees were harmed in the construction of this post. However a large number of electrons were indiscriminately aroused.

    This is only one more battle won, yes. But that's how you win wars. One battle at a time. And you have to remember that these battles we are winning are during a time of intense pressure by gun control advocates at all levels, all the way up to the White House. That we are winning ANY battles under these current political conditions is a reason to celebrate. And we are winning battles almost all over the country. It must be very disheartening to the anti's that despite the biggest push for gun control certainly in my memory, we are racking up victory after victory for freedom and liberty.
