This whole national gun dialoge is so disingenuous.
The majority of those who 'cling to their guns' have been polled, and the REAL issue has nothing to do with public or personal safety. It's about NO TRUST in Leftist government's ultimate intent to totally run the show, throw out the Constitution and impose tyrannical rule on the populous. The Second Amendment was DESIGNED as the fail safe to put power in the hands of individuals in order to REVOLT against a tyrannical government if the need arises.
Even if the Leftists pass Laws with their mob rule majority, local States will do just what some States now do re the Federal Marijuana Laws...piss on em.
Screw Obama. We all know the gig. Talk, lies, mind games to sway the useful idiot public. By now, it ought to be pretty clear to most free thinkers that it WON'T be electoral mechanisms that will shape the future. It will be the effects of paralysis of economic and political systems, and the back to the basics/ground up/Local powers therein.
