True. We've seen the same thing from the sodomite agenda. If the people pass props opposing them, they go to court. If the court strikes them down, they push for another vote, or go to another court. They judge-shop and get judges who are sympathetic to them. They never stop until they get their way, then they start castigating the right for not "letting it go" and opposing the "will of the people". Like they've done with obamacare. They never never stop until they've gotten their way. They live for activism, unlike most on the right who have families to support.

It’ll be back, in some other form; count on it again, someday soon.

“It never dies.......all gun owners should count on a lifelong fight.”

How true. I got my first shotgun for Christmas 1963, a month after JFK was assassinated, and the calls for gun control had already begun, led by Lyndon Johnson and followed later by GCA-68, impelled into law by the King & RFK assassinations. The 1970’s were bad for gun owners & CCW was unknown except for a privileged few. The Reagan years brought considerable relief and IMO changed the momentum away from gun control and toward affirming 2A gun rights.

Now in the fifth year of the Obamanation of Desolation the gungrabbers seem ascendant but communications & social media have leveled the playing field and the NYT no longer dictates social policy or popular attitudes. The bad guys lost yesterday but as the saying goes, “gun control is a tide that is always coming in”.

Indeed, all gun owners should count themselves as involved in a lifetime struggle for their rights.
