I get the impression it already is. Outside of the media’s “active measures” (which seem to be getting increasingly desperate to fan any remaining flames) , I’m really not seeing any lasting squawking about gun control among people.
Rasmussen Poll is pretty accurate. 55 percent will accept some form of assault weapons ban, but 62 percent oppose total banning of gun ownership. All this is based on current perception of what an assault weapons ban is. Obama and Dems wants to use this issue in the 2014 elections. GOP is not united after fiscal cliff vote, and fearful of the Dem/MSM PR machine in the next election as well as Tea Party challenge during primary. NRA and other organizations need to lean on Dems as well as shore up GOP. They have influence in both parties. This is a fight for our lives. Forces in our favor, bad economic times means people are wary of police cutbacks and being left on their own during crime. If our economy was booming, AWB has a good chance of passing, maybe the hard economic times may temper disarmament.
“People” don’t matter.
The Elite do.
The congress and White House don’t care about people. People scare them. They care about power.
Write your congressmen, but realize that they don’t really worry to much about what you people think.
Look at Obamacare. The People didn’t want it, but in the end, it didn’t matter.
