I bet numbers like that keep them up at night trembling in terror.

They're already making countermoves. Just this morning I heard on FOX that in a new bill concerning the Veterans Administration; that any vet that has been judged to be incompetent to handle their own finances they shall be entered into a criminal database that will prohibit them from owning firearms. So if you can't balance your checkbook, you lose your guns? Yup. How long before they take all the behavioral health databases and do the same? So if you've ever been even mildly depressed, get ready to lose your guns... This was done during Clinton and they got 90,000 vets just banned from owning guns in one fell swoop. Congress tried to address that with a law mandating that any future such actions be done case by case and must show evidence of a legal ruling of incompetence by a judge. But this regime doesn't let little legal niceities like that stand in their way... You watch, this juggernaut has just begun to roll. Spread the word to your ping lists...

That's what's already being done to veterans. Coburn's proposed Amendment to the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act bill was an effort to change that by requiring adjudication before violating veterans' Second Amendment rights. McCain argued against the Amendment, so Coburn stopped trying.
