I doubt we're going to see any improvements in gun legislation. Maybe if McCain and Palin get voted in we'd have a leg up, but even with that team in the office I seriously doubt any gun laws would be repealed, or even slowed down much, but at least the presidential veto would lie in the hands of a Republican, andPalin seems very genuinely pro gun.
If Obama gets in, I think the Senate will be able to pass whatever hogwash they can come up with. Dems have the majority vote in the senate, and with one of their own in the oval office I think we'll be seeing a lot more registration requirements, a lot more licensing requirements, a lot more 'second amendment means the national guard' squawk, and a lot more 'you have no right to defend your home' legislation. Eventually I think we're going down the same road as England, where our governmentkeep laying down anti-defense laws until guns are completely illegal, and then whenmurder/rape/mugging shoots up to an all time high, they'll start banning knives.
Just my two cents. Maybe I'm being over dramatic.
