No, the sky is not falling. Yes, there are new gun control measures. They amount to nuisances, and in a few years the government will change hands again, and there will be a chance to change the law, or challenge it in court.You do know that anything less than Constitutional Carry where no permit is needed is still the government infringing on the right to bear arms by requiring us to get it's permission? You do understand that if something is a right one doesn't need to have the government's permission? And I would say that with what is going on in Virginia where the anti gunners didn't get everything they wanted but they still got some of what they wanted, and what they wanted was NEW gun control measures, as the sky really is falling. And falling hard in Virginia.
I agree, one shouldn't need a permit to carry. But in a shall-issue state, it again amounts to a nuisance.
You seem to want a government that never infringes on anyone's rights. It's not possible, never has been, never will be. No matter how constituted or well-intentioned, through simple human fallibility, people's rights will always be violated. The danger of your way of thinking is that it makes the perfect the enemy of the good. If we can't accept that government is imperfect, it implies that we must take the most desperate action in response to the most trivial infringement, which can't make things better and will likely make them worse.
