I'd rather see the anti-gun forces try and take away all our 2nd Amendment rights in one fell swoop than in an agonizing, incremental death.
They know better. This goes back to the late 1970s, when Pete Shields (founder of HCI) published their strategy of incrementalism. Things like Sandy Hook just helped accelerate the timetable. They've honed their messaging, built coalitions, and raised money.

Meanwhile, the vast majority of gun owners sit on the couch and complain when someone else didn't stop it from happening. Heck, most don't even vote. They can do all the rallies they want; Virginia is a lost cause.
