    Yes. I think that too many people listen to talk radio and are easily swayed by half-truths, exaggerations, and outright lies. Remember, no scandal, fear, or other emotions,= no audience. The truth is usually somewhere in the middle and boring to boot.

    Nancy Pelosi has said, "The time is not right yet."

    That tells me that it is on the table so to speak, just not the centerpiece right now.

    It's coming kids, just wait. BTW, the quote from Pelosi was taken in context, as the question was about gun control and banning guns. She has also said that if she could she would take every gun from every American.

    We're living in "dangerous" times.

    Posting stuff on gun forums is great, informative, etc though it's sort of like preaching to the choir. We must continue to be diligent in contacting our local, state and federal government on any 2A issues. If your newspaper has a anti-gun editorial or letter to the editor, write a pro-gun letter back to them asap, to set the record straight. Don't use the excuse that they won't print your letter.

    Join the NRA or whatever gun organization, I give memberships to my family as gifts. Donate a little campaign money to a pro-gun legislator and tell him it's because of his pro-gun stance.

    If we become complacent, the anti-gun crowd will win......then it's too late
    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.

    Interesting. Conservative talk radio is the only broadcast format running in the black, and unsubsidized by related corporate interests.

    KYcarry, G&A is hardly a prime prognosticator of social trends. The real issue is the mid-term election(s). If the Dems maintain control, we will see ram-rodding. Universal healthcare will most likely be the tool. Telling people you won't treat their wife/baby/crotch-rot is the most effective way to develop social compliance.

    While I agree with a lot of the sentiments expressed in the article my concern is not one act of Obama or Congress but a slow erosion of the gains that have been made over the last 15 ~ 20 years with respect to CCW.

    I live in downstate NY where there is almost wholesale ignorance regarding firearms and the importance of the 2nd amendment. Maybe this skews my perspective but there seems to be an incremental dumbing down of Americans (probably more pronounced among the under 30 generation) regarding 2nd amendment issues.

    If future generations don't view firearms ownership as important, and if you couple that with increasing taxes and fees (firearms, ammunition, licensing and registration, etc.) related to firearms ownership, and further complicate the process of obtaining a CCW, we could end up with a defacto CCW prohibition where only the wealth and well connected can for all practical purposes exercise this right.

    2Edge,
    You make a very good point. It's pretty much that way in L.A. and N.Y. , no connections, no permit.
    We have to do whatever we can to rid ourselves of that Pelosi maniac. What a hypocrite, protected by men with guns but wants to take ours ? Sorry Nancy, You are going to get yourself fired with that B.S.

    They would never enact a ban? But in fact they did, and that was in a more conservative time, with more supposed gun-supporters. Now that things have tilted steeply to the left, we are supposed to believe that they won't enact another ban?

    - The mainstream media calls for another ban every day.
    - The anti-gun groups feel emboldened by the new pres/cong/senate
    - Dem politicians attend every anti-gun rally
    - Joyce Foundation says they will make sure it happens in O's first term.

    Granted they won't do it this year because they are too busy socializing our economy. But next year?
