    Never finished reading the article. Don't care to spend my time reading quotes from the ignorant and uninformed.

    I lived in that area for years before we moved to WV. It's uber Liberal, wealthy and filled with self satisfied people.

    This made me laugh out loud though:

    Fairfax resident Jim Lynch identified himself as conservative, independent and Libertarian, but also a strong advocate of gun regulation. “I do not see the second amendment as an absolute right,” he said. “The right to life is the ultimate right.”

    Yeah Jim..."the right to life is the ultimate right"...too bad most of the NOVA area doesn't agree.

    More laws for the law abiding.

    100 people? LOL! I wonder if the local media covered it as "what if you held a rally and nobody came?" LOL! Good ones people, keep it up, all 100 of you!
    As Benjamin Franklin left the hall in Philadelphia, he was asked, “What kind of government have you given us, Dr. Franklin?” He replied: “A republic, if you can keep it.”

    Here's the important part...

    100 people showed up to talk about gun control at a forum in the city. They talked about it rationally, and calmly, if emotionally. The press covered it, and made it sound reasonable and sane.

    At pro gun rallies, more than 100 show up, there's a lot of yelling, and sloganeering, and guns on hips and slung on shoulders (where legal). The press covers that too, but they edit out most of the calm and reasonable speakers... And cover the chants of "cold, dead hands" and show all the big bellied rednecks wearing cargo pants or shorts, slogan t shirts that won't cover the aforementioned bellies, and make all of us look like extras in the movie Deliverance .

    And that, folks is what makes us look like the lunatic fringe.

    That was an incredibly one sided article.

    That's typical Northern VA politics though. As the Leviathan that is D.C. grows, it spills over into Virginia and corrupts her.

    Corrupted... A long time ago. I've long said VA should split again. North VA, South VA, East and West VA(sorry WVA we need our name back). Either that or we just relinquish FFX and every county up to 3 counties in from the coast and let DC annex them. FFX for sure is already lost. There's no coming back from that one. Winning FFX back is like dropping the lone ranger in the mid-east and expecting all terrorists to just give up and run away.

    i don't know Virginia (though i've visited McLean), but i do know California and Washington State. outside of the major urban centers like Seattle-Tacoma, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego, attitudes towards firearms are much more sensible. (dare i say they/we have more 'common sense'?). unfortunately, those areas have enough voting citizens to often push their gun-grabbing agendas on the rest of the state. secession or separation sounds like a wonderful idea. i just don't see any way to make it happen.

    local residents and national gun control groups who both say they are frustrated
    Not frustrated enough as far as I'm concerned.

    Recently, I have begun to repeatedly wonder about something. On one side of this issue the people have guns, on the the other they have words. What exactly is the threat now?

    I know, right? I mean the article is making it sound like both sides of the debate are frustrated...

    It's only one side that's frustrated... The gun grabbers.


    But on a state to state level we are losing, heavily in some areas, while gaining in others. And our side, as you said, has the guns...
    Rats!
