Generally, the wilder ideas don't get any more than token support, and wither away, until the usual suspects can legally introduce them again.
The chief proponent of gun control in the US congress has an 89 percent failure rate when it comes to getting his proposed legislation passed. See upper left hand corner:

Just got back from Austin, full of hippies and weirdos with tatoos and wild hair.

Horrors, better go up to a cave in Hill Country and wait for the next AWB.

BTW, folks - as moderators we find it amusing when someone says they are so annoyed that they are leaving the forum or a conversation and it is obvious they are still following the show.

If you are leaving, leave.

The only thing I can see right now is the proverbial pendulum swinging to our side for right now, then there may at some point be a bit of equalization.

Laws, as well as the popularity for them kind of ebb and flow similar to the tide. Or at least in my view.

Tom and Glenn, beyond my other coursework I have now, I will make it a point to watch Red Dawn again soon so I am not left out in the dark...

My first visit to Texas was Austin, in the early '90's. We were playing SxSW, and it seemed a pretty metropolitan place...nothing like I expected.

Then I was sternly informed by numerous Texans that Austin ain't Texas.

The last time I was in Austin was a few years back. All I can remember is heading south on 35, looking for I-10. I can remember laredo, pharr, brownsville, and elpaso more.

Oh btw, I walked accross the border once then. It didnt take me long to come back to the US.

Too bad I am not a hippie, I could have fun... But then again everyone here knows me and expects me to be responsible. Ruins the fun dontcha know.
