I mentioned in another thread that, when I was working at NRA 20 years ago, I TRULY feared for the future of gun rights in this country.

Brady, the "Assault" Weapons ban, the seeming growing power of the anti-gun movement in the country with the Million Moms and other organizations, it was all seeming to coalesce for them.

Then it all went to hell for them and start going our way.

I've thought about it many times over the years, but I have never been able to positively identify exactly where the turning point was, or what really caused what I've started calling "The Great Gun Rights Awakening" (apologies, Jonathan Edwards and George Whitfield).

Maybe there really wasn't one.
