    Having my name on a list would definitely class as an 'impact' in my book.

    Never give up, never give in! Emails to my representatives are still leaving my computer.

    This is only round 1. Round 2 may not be as asinine, but must be fought as hard as round 1.

    This is an ongoing fight and I can't see it ending, it will ebb at times but it will never go away. We must remain vigilant and pass our beliefs and values on to the younger generations, which is not always easy with a system that tends to be against us. Our culture has been changing over the years, we are seeing that process speeding up exponentially.

    I'm still not confident all regional Republicans, particularly from Northeastern states, are as committed to protection of 2A rights as members of the party from other areas might be. I'm going to wait til AFTER a vote happens, assuming it makes it that far, before I celebrate anything.

    I agree with the OP. if someone asked me 6 weeks ago, i would have said that we were screwed. But we are in a MUCH stronger position today. The AWB has become a pariah for the senate democrats, with almost no hope of success. And there seems to be waning enthusiasm for the other proposals like mag limits. The only proposal i see as having a chance of passing is the universal background check, which i wouldn't really lose sleep over nor would most gun owners.

    It's true that individual states might try to pass new legislation, But seeing how Cuomo's approval rating took a nose dive might give other governors some apprehension when considering taking the same course of action.

    One thing is for certain, all the letter writing has worked. Take heart in our successes so far, but we should not get complacent. The gun grabbers got too overzealous, and in doing so awoke a sort of "sleeping giant". Gun owners from all walks of life have made their voices heard. I am proud to stand in solidarity with my fellow American gun owners in support of our rights. It's a beautiful thing!

    We must remain vigilant, the emperor has almost 4 more years to try and get something through. I think that we all know that their goal is a national registry for starters and then close ranks over time, which is exactly what Hitler did in 1935.

    We must all remember that "power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely" so be ever vigilant "it ain't over till the fat lady sings".

    Make no mistake: Even if we stay clear of new laws now, they will come back again and again and again.
    Maybe we should support in the next CA senate race who ever runs against Frankenstein!

    You are smart to question the R's. As we learned from Cuomo's Folly, having an R next to your name means nothing. We are having a good first round, but we need to go on the offense during the second. Let the Anti-Constitutionalists know that your new personal mission is to ensure their defeat at mid-terms.

    She's 79. Soon to be 80, in June. The end is coming one way or another!

    I think the NRA is much better tuned to this than we are. They thought it would have to give them something. With their changing their mind on the background checks I think they think now they may not have to give them anything.

    They would love for us to think that and back off. We cannot afford to do so as they surely will not. Not today, not tomorrow. They will keep coming at us like .... dare I say it .......Zombies.

    They will never quit trying.

    The antis may regret having woken up a sleeping giant as gun owners rise up and fight this war against the Constitution/Second Amendment.

    We shall never surrender ... our guns :D

    That "Sleeping giant" that was awakened had best remain awake and alert.
    And never drift off to sleep. Not now. Not ever.
    The antis will never quit, neither can we.

    Those leftists and their supporters are so afraid of guns and gun owners, they won't quit. Who thought that? They will sneak and slime, they will lie and drop all pretense of morality in ways to derive means for their ultimate goal. It's for the children and so the goal is more important than how they get there.

    Possible AWBs are a lot like Herpes.... They pop up when you least expect them to. Staying proactive and (protected) will greatly reduce the chance of infection. Stay vigilant.

    Heh, don't do the happy-dance yet. While a full blown AWB has little traction, there are a lot of folks who are ok with magazine limits...even amongst many gun owners.

    I do see where these people are coming from, however. In their minds, guns are for sporting purposes and it's pretty hard to justify a 30 rounder for sporting purposes. I mean, hell, shoot a rabbit 30 times with 7.62x39 and there won't be any meat left!

    Before y'all turn your flames on, let me state that I already know it ain't about sporting anything. 30 rounders are needed the goblin or goblins that may come knocking. 30 rounders are needed should, God forbid the day ever comes, that some future hell-bent administration takes one too many tyranny pills. 30 rounders are needed when it, the ammo, and the gun that runs it are the only thing that stands between a mob of looters after a civil unrest situation and your family.

    THAT is what needs to be drilled into the heads of the average "sportsman". It ain't about sport-anything.

    It definitely isn't time to party yet. I still think too many senators consider magazine capacity restrictions to be "reasonable" regulations. And even if the universal background check is the only thing to make it to the Senate floor (something I don't oppose in principle), there is a danger that the law could be written in such a way as to create a national firearms registry.

    Stay vigilant. Keep your legislators and their staffers busy taking your calls and reading your letters.
