In 1994, there were 1 million Concealed Carriers in the nation. Today, there are ~9 million, and growth is accelerating.
The NRA has only 4 million members.
The gun-grabbers gain every time the NRA gains. They get to say "Look at those nutjob NRA folks and the Republicans they support."
We're losing more people to "The GOP and the NRA oppose this, so I should support it" than we are to "OMG, Guns are scary"
Obama and Biden have addressed all sorts of demographics, including sportsmen and hunters, but I haven't found *anything* that they've said about concealed carry. Nothing. Why? Because as soon as Concealed Carriers enter into the discussion, the argument is over and in favor of Pro-gun. Here we are, trusted, trained, and licensed by the states as the good guys. Concealed carry has been steadily expanded over the past 3 decades as we've proven ourselves worthy of that trust.
Ask Biden and Obama to talk about Concealed Carriers. Demand to know how these proposed bans will affect concealed carriers. Ask why concealed carriers - who have passed mandatory training standards, passed background checks and have been endorsed by law enforcement - should be limited to diminished capacity magazines.
Do that, and that's either the end of it, or we will have secured exemptions to magazine capacity limits.
We work together every damn day. --Jon Stewart
