Can't wait till all the liberals complain about this one. These are the same folks that talk freedom but really want control of everyone and everything - as long as it is in their agenda.

I hope you are wrong. And I hope that gang members don't look at this as a "challenge" either. But if they do, they will be plenty of ordinary folk with guns to protect themselves!

Just like the republicans with abortion and gay rights. They talk about freedom but only for their agenda.

"Summer in America" - like it. There should be similar events held everywhere to send a message to Holder and the Brady Gouls.

I'll be there.
It's time to push back. For too long gun owners have tried to compromise with the Brady Campaign and Violence Policy Center and what do we get for it? More restrictions on the people who don't commit crimes.
With the 2nd amendment being upheld as an individual right by the Supreme Court 9 to 0 last June and a 5/4 split on what "shall not infringe" means and the recent incorporation of the 2nd under the due process clause of the 14th amendment by the 9th circuit it's time to make it clear that fundamental enumerated rights are not to be messed with.
Governor Doyle vetoed a Concealed carry law twice and has said publicly that if citizens wish to carry it should be right out in the open on our hip.

P.S. You aren't a redneck just because you expect your government to follow it's constitution. Of course DHS may call you a right wing extremist.

What compromise? Any restriction on firearms--including on the sale of armor piercing bullets--has been met with howls of outrage by the gun lobby.

Or is your idea of "compromise" not rising up in armed rebellion?

Machine gun and suppressor registration in 1934, the Gun Control Act of 1968, the Brady Act, the closing of the machinegun registry in 1986, the import ban on "non sporting rifles" in 1989 are the main ones. There are 20,000 gun laws on the books now and yet the BATF can't be bothered to arrest people who provably lie on the 4473 form.
Shall we pass another "Assault Weapons" ban you know the one that a) didn't actually ban anything but scary features and b) banned scary features found on weapons used in less than 1% of all gun crimes according to the FBI UCI. There was after all a huge number of bayonetings and people hiding their flashes prior to 1994.
As far as armor piercing bullets go it's a bogus piece of legislation. Banning bullets capable of penetrating police armor means every just about center fire rifle cartridge made will be illegal. Any cartridge capable of taking deer sized game will go through class II or III vests like butter.
I would also like to ask if an enumerated right that explicitely says "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed" can be legislated into non existence in places like Chicago and D.C. what in the world makes you think an unenumerated right like abortion or privacy is safe?

I would not give the Brady Gouls the dignity of the name they use. They are really lawsuit seeking gouls dancing in the blood of tragedy.

The Brady's get paid a great deal of money for franchising their name to the lawyers that set up the organization. Follow the money!!!

I'm not going to argue with your other points, but all of the laws you cite were passed over the fierce objection of the gun lobby. That is not 'compromise."
