    Waking the dragon How Feinstein fiddled while America burned

    Excellent article by a college newspaper columnist. Long, but well worth your time to read and digest.

    My synopsis - "know thy enemy." Snell gives dozens of valid reasons why he doesn't trust the anti-gunners, from the Administration on down.

    What a great article, though I don't really care for that "sheepdog" part. I think this was my favorite part

    Great read gasmitty, thanks for posting. I agree with Harryball that he makes a lot of great points and comparisons in there. Many of which would give a fence-sitter some good food for thought.

    You know, if you read it with an open mind... you could substitute gun rights or gun owners with Gays, with abortions, blacks and/or other minorities, etc.. We are being treated like second class citizens by those who always try to defend "second class citizens."

    Isn't it ironic?

    Good article clearly pointing to the road this country is starting down. We cannot go down that road. We just can't. I hope and pray we don't.

    This article perfectly captures the frustration of trying to reason with antis. Bravo to the author. He has his head on right...

    Interesting analogy, true still that everyone deserves equal rights. I think that the pro-regulation pundits rationale comes from a good place but they honestly couldn't see the forest through the trees. They are trying to protect everyone, but at what cost? Stripping rights of gun owners? Where is the line?

    Very good article.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
