Well, while "they" *DO* mistreat the 2nd Amendment, I'd hardly call the Texas treatment a "joke"...
Maybe a serious misunderstanding, among other things....
At any rate, the only way to get our rights restored is the same way we've given them up--one small slice at a time. If that's a good enough technique for the Brady Bunch, it's good enough for all of us.
I really think the Campus Carry bill has a chance of passing; it's getting plenty of publicity around here, and most everyone either (A) truly could care less or (B) is for it. There's a vocal "anti" movement, too, but nobody seems to think they make much sense, outside the drive-by media...and remember their interest is in stirring things up.
We (all of us) need to jump on board for any (ANY) legislation that either furthers the cause, expands the current acceptance (I'm not getting into rights/privileges/permission on this one) or gives anyone the opportunity to protect themselves in more places.
Rome wasn't built in a day, and we can't afford to give up--especially if it's even a baby step in the right direction.
My 2 cents worth. I offer it for free. It's probably worth what you paid for it.
I agree as well. A little at a time.
