I can live with another AWB. I can live with higher ammo prices and higher gun prices. (Tho I do NOT like any of those options) I can NOT live with the idea that we wont be able to carry or own guns. I PRAY that wont happen.
You're buying the mindset that the far left would like you to have.
Another AWB, which was already proven to have no effect on crime, would be only one step in their stated goal ending your ability to own or use firearms of any type, and then stripping away all your other rights as well one by one. Accepting the destruction of any part of your rights is a prelude to the destruction of the rest.
The proper stance, IMHO, is to join and strongly support the organizations that defend our rights (NRA, TSRA, etc.) and to become politically active in calling, emailing, and writing your representatives at all levels whenever legislation affecting our rights is under consideration.
United and active, we stand. Fragmented and passive, we fall.
There is your answer folks!
