I saw a story on Facebook http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/03/19/reid-cuts-assault-weapons-ban-from-senate-gun-control-bill-amid-waning-support/ that gave me pause. I wrote the following paragraph in the comment box and shared.
Before anyone jumps up and down over this "victory" look at what has happened. The fallback position has always been universal registration, the exact position the republikrat establishment agreed to when this all started. They come to a "bi-partisan agreement" and pat each other on the back while they bask in the glow of an approving media, and We the People have just lost our 2nd Amendment rights. Universal registration will lead directly to confiscation. And confiscation has been the goal of both parties from the beginning. We are being played again, by both party establishments. Universal registration is the last nail in the coffin of the peaceful restoration of liberty in the United States of America.
