Response to The Straight Story (Original post)

26. What is going to be oh so sweet, and it's looking more & more like it'll happen in my lifetime,

is when the House of Representatives goes Blue for good thanks to demographics, and President Obama or his Democratic successor is able to appoint two, three or maybe even more Supreme Court justices. No more obstacles to doing the right, civilized thing about firearms and the carnage their easy availability has upon our communities!

Then we'll get us some meaningful gun control legislation, and the Heller/McDonald decisions overturned to boot. Young, college-educated people aren't buying the NRA's message anymore, and the minority communities which have been devastated by the ravages of firearms violence so some right-wingers can fondle assault rifles and strut around Wal Mart with a pistol perched in their pants don't need to be convinced of the selfishness and hateful indifference of the typical "RKBA" advocate to their situation.

Those days are coming, whether our "law abiding gun owners" like it or not: and when it does, they'll be faced with a choice. They can either register their toys and turn the ones in no civilian has any business possessing - like assault rifles; like semi-automatic handguns; like shotguns capable of chambering more than three rounds; all .50 calibers; etc., etc. - and continue to be "law-abiding gun owners" with the .22's and shotguns and sports pistols our society graciously allows them to continue to own as long as they register them and pass an FBI background check, or they can take the "no one's going to be the boss of me" attitude that is so rampant among the ranks of the armed and angry of the "RKBA" movement. And then we'll just see what happens, about like we did with those restaurant owners who said "no one's gonna be the boss of me!!!" after the Civil Rights Act of 1964 passed, and they didn't want to take down their "Whites Only" signs. I haven't seen one of those signs in a long, long, time - and that's a good thing. As will the day meaningful gun control legislation is passed by a Democratic Congress and signed into law by a Democratic President and then upheld by a liberal-majority Supreme Court that understands the true meaning of the 2nd amendment, not the Scalia-Rambo fantasy that says "a pistol in every pot!"

It's going to be a great day to relish when it arrives, and it's a'coming. The sooner the better.
