Some News.

Some good gun laws being proposed.  Check to see if your state is on the list.

Counter Protesting Gun Control, even in New Jersey.    We may be tiring, but so are they.  And there's more of us than them.

A victory in Massachusetts

Gun Control's Futility.
The genie is out of the bottle as far as gun control, folks. We've had well over 100 years of pretty much the same designs - while the materials used to make the firearms have changed and improved, the overall design hasn't changed much since the days of the 1911 and the Thompson submachine gun. We've had semi- and fully- automatic, removable box-fed weapons for well over 100 years (94 in the case of the Thompson). "High capacity" magazines for the same amount of time. These are not difficult items to manufacture. Pretending we can legislate crimes away is not going to work.
Just because it's futile doesn't mean they won't keep trying.

And some motions in the Senate.  Plus  a list of phone numbers to call.

Meanwhile Chicago thinks they can ignore Federal Court.  

Chicago is arguing that they can essentially ignore the federal courts, and keep arresting people for carrying unlawfully, even after the expiration of the 180 day deadline.
These people are living in an alternate reality where not only does the Second Amendment not exist, but where federal courts have no power to declare state laws unconstitutional. 

And I'll end with some advice from Weer'd

The battlefield for gun rights will not be on forums, or blogs, but at the water cooler, in the locker room, or around the dinner table.
We need to be out there! We’re pro-freedom, and we’re not ashamed of it. Also we need to understand that just because somebody may speak favorably for gun control does NOT mean they’re a cultist, and instead need to be given respect and patience…even when they won’t reciprocate the same to you.
Don’t get frustrated, if we were losing we’d be able to buy ammo, magazines, and guns right now!

 It's going to be tough, but we've gotta do what we gotta do.
