I absolutely agree that the anti-gunners will continue to come after us, especially if they have any success with the current bill Feinstein is introducing.
I don't agree that 1/2 of our country is for more gun control. I do believe that they believe what they are told by our anti-gun politicians, media & "celebrities" that that less guns = less violent crime. Statistics show the exact opposite. But as Sarah Brady has said, "An ounce of emotion is worth a pound of facts". Right now emotions are running high, and the anti's are trying to use this to their advantage.
I'd love to see the pro-gun groups really go on the offensive. You can't argue with the facts. I'd love to see a media campaign promoting the positive aspects of gun ownership and the shooting sports.
And I highly encourage each one of us to introduce a non-gun, non-shooting friend to the sport! There is strength in numbers
