The Swinging Pendulum

Fifteen years ago, the Clinton AWB went effectively unopposed w/ the only saving grace being a time limit on the law. Brady II was being prepared w/ every other sort of gun ban and restriction in the works.

Today, anti-gun groups are fighting to keep CCW out of national parks and colleges w/ poor if mixed results while killers continue to take advantage of these criminal empowerment zones and even the most authoritative of "reports" issued are shredded by lowly bloggers.

Compare that to AU and the UK were a single incident resulted in public support of the confiscation of millions of firearms w/ no ( at best) or negative effects on crime as criminals just substituted weapons.

So yes, we're winning. But the BC said the same thing 15 years ago. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.
