So it looks like the next presidential election will give us the choice between giant douche and turd sandwich. Neither major candidate is a friend of gun owners or a supporter of the constitution and freedom. What do you think that, combined with a democratically controlled legislature will mean? Personally I think the general public opinion of guns and the 2nd amendment is pretty healthy right now. Lots of people are carrying concealed and buying guns. I don't think drastic sweeping changes like bans are going to be a realistic concern. I think instead we'll suffer a few more tiny cuts in the form of "common sense" gun laws. Assuming that McCain is the best choice for gun owners, lets look at what he's been responsible for in the past. Take a look at this write up of legislation he's sponsored a few years back http://www.davekopel.com/2A/IP/gunshows2.htm There goes private sales at gun shows. My gloom and doom forecast might be the end of private sales at gun shows and perhaps all together. Other small "common sense" options might include storage requirements and waiting periods.
