"Who'd ever have dreamed that someday the two leading Democratic presidential candidates would be claiming they supported the Second Amendment individual right? (Both have fallen back to "but we can regulate it"). I've been involved in this issue for decades, and so have a long term view. It's been steadily downhill for the other side.

"1960s: they think they can get national registration and permit systems, at a bare minimum. In fact, the predecessor to the Brady Campaign opposes national registration and permits because it's a sell-out, a compromise that would deprive them of even more. They get GCA 68, which the Washington Post denounces as a worthless compromise."

. . . fast forward to:

"2008: Democratic candidates don't even argue collective rights anymore."

Great post from Dave Hardy, prompted by Alphecca.
