    I think a good start would be to instruct the ATF to stop using the "sporting purposes" BS. Regulatory change only.

    The republicans are stacking the courts with pro 2-A judges.

    The democrats are knocking over states like fukin dominoes with AWBs and anything else they want.

    The judges aren't doing a damn thing about it, and aren't gonna start. Ever.

    We're cheering 'our side' on for winning, they're cheering 'their side' on for winning.

    We're all fucked.

Even faced with a filibuster, the bills could have been brought up repeatedly or have some of the milder ones attached to necessary measures. Recall the HPA vanished. Cornyn's reciprocity (granted that is controversial) was proclaimed! He sent me messages about it. Where did it go?

    Yes, the Democrats will take the guns away. When will the wonder twins in SCOTUS get that august body of its butt to take a case that truly and unambiguously voids the state bans? Years go by and scrumptious scrutiny of modern spurting rifles goes nowhere.

    Let's see the enhancement agenda in the next state of the union that proposes more than 'defending'.
    I lost you on the first sentence. Are you seriously thinking / hoping that this administration will expand 2A anything, or is this purely rhetorical?
    “Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.

    It's dangerous to challenge a system unless you're completely at peace with the thought that you're not going to miss it when it collapses.

    When Trump got elected I said, and probably posted here, that we get a 4 year break. I didn’t expect any bonuses, but at least no bans were likely. And I’ve been right except for bump stocks...but I just can’t muster up the outrage for those.

    Unfortunately, plenty of people feel the same way about entire weapons. “That sucks, but I didn’t want one anyway.”

    Looking for signal in a cacophony of noise
    Judges cant do anything until a case or petition is brought before them. The lawsuits need to be filed along with requests for stays.

    Sadly, rhetorical - the RKBA is simply fund raising gimmick to most politicians. I just despair over those who think else wise and that something will be done. I do like to point out hypocrisy among all politician. My favorite on the Democratic side is Schumer who is supposed to represent NY and lives in fancy pants Brooklyn. Want to represent NYS - live in Utica.

    Smack dab in the middle of the state? That would require he be a centrist.

    Haha - LOL. I believe that one only has to look at the way he wears those douche bag glasses to have a handle on his worth as a human being. He's been a tool of Wall Street for years but talks the talk of the 'people'.

    They're all douche nozzles, every last one of 'em in my opinion. They've forgotten that they're supposed to serve the interests of the electorate, not their pocketbooks.

    But that's old news and I don't see that bus backing up and pulling a u-turn anytime soon.
