Jason; I concur. I see the gun control push originating with local govenments, fanned by gun control "groups" and a few individual folks, gasoline added to the fire by broken hearted individuals post-crisis.....then shoved down the throats of politicians who started their day with other priorities. I too voted Obama, and always felt comfortable in his leaving guns alone...and he did. While he has brought up gun control pre-recent history, it was all lip service.
I agree with what most are doing....write local reps. I wrote mine as well.
