I hear you my friend, so many people slumber..... Even some of the most senior people (people I respect) on this forum seem to think it just can't happen.

I just keep wearing my tinfoil hat and hope I am wrong.

It's not that some of us believe it can't happen, it's that we believe it won't happen... At least not in this congressional session.

The reasons are varied, but include the fact that with all the other social engineering the Democratic majority want passed, anti-gun laws are rather low on the list.

Look closely at the updates that gc70 is providing. Many, if not most of the bills, are going nowhere. Shortly, there will be a new Congress and it must start all over from scratch, whoever wins the majority.

Now add in the fact that our opponents (Brady Campaign & such) are losing lots of support. This can be seen in their financial statements to the FEC. See here.

Crime in general is at an all time low, despite the fact that gun ownership has risen to all time highs. Their rhetoric simply isn't being bought. See this thread.

Now add in the current victories in the Courts, it all adds up to our side gaining momentum. Slowly, yes. But nevertheless, it is a good thing for our side.

Should our current President win another term, and the Dems still retain leadership in Congress, then I think all bets are off.
