Re: ccw ??
First off, welcome to TFF, Flynbye. We're glad you've decided to join us.
It's definitely not just in your head, because it seems to be in a lot of people's heads. Obama's record is strongly against guns.
However, I don't think we have a whole lot to worry about, really. We elected a new president. He's not the one I wanted, and it seems clear he's not the one you wanted, but he's the one we're goingt to get. That's OK.
We have a new Congress and a new President under the same old system. Because of the Heller v. D.C. ruling handed down by the Supreme Court in June, Americans now have the affirmed right to self-defense, including self-defense with a handgun. (This is a right we have always had, as it is a natural right, but the Court has now affirmed it as such.)
If we elected a new absolutist of some kind (king, dictator, etc.), he could just "make guns illegal," but that's not the case. I for one am not worried about it. I'm still keeping my eyes opened, but I'm not worried.
Here's another way of looking at the same issue: On the off chance guns are made illegal and CCW class registrations are looked up so that all weapons can be confiscated, then you can't carry a gun anymore.
If you don't take the class in the first place, then you still can't carry a gun. Same result.
