    NPR reports gun control losing traction.

    Story here: http://m.npr.org/news/front/176064154

    On a national level, "gun control, Inc." is discovering its own "slippery slope."

    Dems are reluctant to back the laws being proposed, especially those seeking re-election.

    All fairly good news, but don't back off, now, or ever.

    Additionally, it was noted that NRA was not budging, this time... They might yet get a membership fee from me.

    My line in the sand is behind me... I will retreat no further...
    Rats!

    Anti gun dems or repubs fear a house cleaning like before. This time more are paying attention to whos voting for what and there is a louder and more public resistance even by state legislatures. I hope they drug all this up and get it stuffed back down their throat without anything getting passed.

    I heard this mentioned at the end of an Obummer in CO report. They said it really fast like they wanted you to not hear it.

    The Feds may be backing off on gun control, but we all need to keep an eye on the various state governments. With New York, Colorado, and now Connecticut leading the way, the Feds may back off and see how individual states do with gun control. Obama still has a lot of time left in office. The Federal issue may come up again later if the states make some progress on gun control.

    We need to stay strong and not give an inch.

    You give an inch in "compromise" and they'll take a mile of 2nd Amendment.

    I'll be convinced the Feds have backed off, and acutally support our 2A rights when my 3 CCW permits are recognized in all 50 states, NYC, Wash D.C. and Chit-ago.

    And then, I will only need one.

    If the feds actually supported our 2A rights you wouldn't even need any of those permits in the first place.

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    If it's true, it's still not lasting. Most likely it's a rope-a-dope technique to bide their time for another round.

    Especially if we experience another tragedy in the near future.

    I fervently pray for no more tragedies, until reasonable 2A supporters are elected. Then, I hope we see an elimination of restrictions and GFZs...

    Might as well pray for a miracle, and settle for something a little less.

    Please write and call your representatives again. There are several bills up for discussion next week including the universal background check. Contact your senator and let them know you oppose these measures.

    We were on the way to reciprocity, $5 suppressor transfers, turmoil over Fast and Furious, and CCW Permits in ILLinois, then overnight it was gone. Our opponents aren't going away or giving up. I don't believe in CIA brain rays but if it came out that some Manchurian Candidate was put up to it by some agency I wouldn't be too surprised.

    Things will not start to back off until Jan 20th, 2017.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.
