So 604 while the progressives have shown they do not respect the Constitution & it's abjuration against infringing on the right to keep & bear arms you want us to wait till when?

Till the law does get passed that bans private ownership of all firearms or a certain class of firearms?

Or should we wait till the powers that be are on our doorsteps taking the firearms that you said no one was going to take?

The Left routinely ascribes absolute moral authority to grieving victims in furtherance of their political agenda.  Their agitprop is often manipulative and exploitive, but it works.  Appeals to facts and reason aren't enough anymore; persuading the public increasingly requires emotional appeals.  Even if they find it inherently unpalatable, conservatives must promote people whose personal stories offer counter-narratives to liberals' tragic parade of victimhood.  Katie
