I’m not saying that we should sit back and rest on our laurels or anything, because we need to keep fighting for the 2nd Amendment. But when you look at where we are now in terms of where we were in the late 90s, it’s no wonder we have all this free time to get riled up open carry or Kel-Tecs.

[Honestly, that’s the way I like it. I like the fact we’re winning, however there are two things that concern me. Complacency and ignorance of history. As Caleb points out, a lot of kids going to buy the latest weapon in CoD probably don’t remember the Assault Weapons Ban, the effect it had, and how easily that switch can be flipped off. They will never really understand, they can’t.
Places like Massachusetts and California the youth still are dealing with the pain of stupid legislation. Overall we’re still fighting those battles, but now momentum is helping carry us forward. That momentum is allowing us to have other conversations, some good, others not so much. Frankly though, I like being here because it’s a lot better future than what we were predicting in the 90’s.
Frankly, if we were to have a problem, I think this is a good one to have. -B]
