  3. Two of the five co-sponsors to the 2008 law no longer serve in Congress.

I wasn't being 'youthfully optimistic' when I said the sky is not falling. Congress is scared to death of gun control, and the utter lack of support, and even mention of support, from Congress during an election year should go a long way to helping people realize that.

I hope you are right. I really do but I am not as optimistic as you. But I continue to hope.
