You are right, of course. Admitting for myself, and thinking this may be true for others, I am just so damn depressed and demoralized. During this long night of push for more federal gun control (and other statist control), I always took consolation in being in VA. The VA people were too sensible to fall for that crap, and the VA AG/hoped-for Governor (looking to Cuccinelli) had already demonstrated (ACA, EPA, etc.) he would push back against that encroachment, more so than almost any other state leader across the country.
That hope is now gone (and maybe, as real Libertarians will hasten to tell me, it was a false hope), and we have joined our friends in the MD, NJ, CA, and CO frying pan. Actually worse than CO because at least there, the recall showed that gun owners retained some political will. Here, the appearances are that we have just faded away.
So yes, we need to pull together. I should stop posting and go back to lurking. Aren't you glad, after about five years of lurking, I finally vented?
