We are too quick to say “it won’t happen to us” or “I don’t own an AR-15, so I’m not worried about it”.
That was 1994. Nowadays I'm hearing, "well, I got my
AR-15, so let the ban come."
For the most part, gun owners I'm talking to are apathetic and disinvolved. Saddest are the ones who remember the AWB, seem resigned that it will happen, and don't take the trouble to engage in even the most rudimentary civic involvement on the matter.
