In the 1960s we were under heavy assault by the antgun people. The murder of JFK caused an antgun movement unlike anything I have ever seen. The Left was very strong at that time. They tried to ban scopes high powered rifles just about everything. They managed to stop mail order handguns and add the BATF .
Today we have many more gun owners and growing every day. The Concealed Carry laws a new freedom we never had before is very popular. Obama will try to bring back the Clinton AWB. The Democrats and RINOs will have a tough time getting the votes. We have fought before we will fight them again.
