I don't know, I came of age during the AWB and couldn't quite believe that it was truly gone when it sunsetted.
I feel like that makes me more inclined to fight for what we have now.
I remember being somewhat ostracized in fifth grade after Columbine not only for being a hunter, but not seeing how banning guns would have done anything to stop it.
