One yard at a time?

Another great blog article about the current political agendas as they may be…

If the balance is at the 50-yard line, how far relaxed or strict have we gone in regards to our Second Amendment?

  • 10 yard strict line (a lot of restrictions )
  • 25 yard strict line
  • 40 yard strict line
  • 50 yard line
  • 40 yard relaxed line
  • 25 yard relaxed line
  • 10 yard relaxed line (very few restrictions)
  • Other

This was a good article. And I’m PRO-GUN and CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. And I also do a lot of studying on the subject as well. and from what I’ve been seeing. The Anti-gun people/groups feel that NO ONE NEEDS A FIREARM FOR ANY REASON NO MATTER WHAT IT MIGHT BE. And they also don’t seem to understand the criminals will ALWAYS find a way to have a gun to do their dirty deeds. And the only thing that these gun control laws will do is to keep LAW ABIDING CITIZENS from being able to defend themselves because they obey the law whereas criminals don’t.

Good article, but I think I disagree…….

Beto IS going for the touchdown and attempting to throw the long bomb with his stance on coming to get our rifles and handguns with more than 10rd capacity……

The rest of the Democratic team is attempting to run a flea flicker touchdown play with these red-flag laws and the scope they’re attempting to enforce them at.

It also depends on where you live. In some places it’s like the 20 yardline strict, in others, the 40 yardline or closer relaxed. Nationally, I think around the 35 yardline strict.

I served in the active military for 8 years during which time I was willing to defend the Constitution and Bill of Rights with my life.

There are too many out there that want government to take care of them. These people don’t realize what they give up to have that. Which is simply freedom.
The “watering down” of the 2A is just part of an agenda to enable government more control of people’s lives.

This was a hard question to answer. I live in a Constitutional Carry state. There are very few restrictions here in NH. But when put it in a national context and think of states like California, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York, the equation changes. But notwithstanding those overzealous states, more and more states are passing Constitutional Carry laws. So when it comes to the “gun grabbers”, I’m not losing any sleep over their rhetoric just yet. Let’s just say I’m on Condition Yellow.

Michigan heard testimony for constitutional carry Tuesday. It won’t pass with our governor. But we keep trying. We’re honestly pretty close to having enough votes to override a veto. It sure would be nice!

I’d say that nationally by the early 80’s we got well past the 50yd line.

Fortunately we’ve turned it around as lawful carry has expanded to all fifty states we’ve probably pushed them back to the 25-30yd line.

I’ll say we are about the 15 yard line, towards tyranny. I live in Illinois, where we have tons of stupid regulations, that do nothing to stop criminals. I really believe, we are one wrong election away from some of our worst nightmares, as far as our freedoms go.

I really hope you’re wrong on that, @45IPAC… but personally I suspect that you might right. :frowning:

Too many in our society don’t want to be self reliant. They want the government to take care of them. You give up freedom for safety, you have neither.

Hope and talk will not save us at the goal post, we are one yard from socialism! How did we let it get this far and seriously what do we do about it! The Posse Comitatus act of 1878 will be the last joke on late night TV. Let the purge begin.
I keep thousands of bottles of Tabasco sauce on hand, I hear it’s good on dog and rat!
People in this country think that statement is a joke, but I’m sure if you ask the people in Venezuela they are not laughing.

Count me there too. :unamused:

@45IPAC, I firmly agree with you. If the Socialists make any headway in this next election, the fight to defend 2A will become much harder. I am not optomistic.

I’m not that pessimistic.

Compare today’s firearms and carry laws to what we had in the 70’s.

If you’ve lived through both eras you can easily see we’ve gained a tremendous amount of ground towards restoring our carry and gun rights.
