1. This should be in GD. But the politics there makes it likely it won't survive.

 

Much of what is written in the Atlantic article is what has been reiterated more or less by 2A defenders for years. Please DUers, mark these words:

"It would spark a backlash that would make the political movement to overturn Roe seem like a schoolyard kerfluffle."

The real power to regulate firearms is at the state level, and always has been. Those who wish to hop on down the Bunny Trail of gun control must face the onerous chore facing the Democratic Party writ large: Stop ignoring the South and Mid-Western and Upper -Western states, develop a Party ideology which appeals to people there, and grind it out for many years, only you will face folks like me who will insist that gun-control be off the table as a means of gaining political power and changing society for the better.
