Blogaversary: Number Nine

It was nine years ago today, January 6, 2007, that I got started with this blog, and I do intent to make it to a full decade. That’s a lot of photons under the (FiOS) bridge. For those of you who have been reading from the beginning, thank you. For those of you who haven’t been reading that long, thank you too.

I always imagined my graceful exit from this genre would involve some decent protections for the Second Amendment from the courts, and the political fight headed in the right direction. I’m feeling pretty good about the latter, but not at all about the former. The latter could be unraveled with one bad election. The GOP won’t be in power forever, and at this point the Dems are fully dedicated to gun control.

I might not have the time anymore to do 10 posts a day, but it is not yet time to throw in the towel. We’re in a better place than I would have thought we would be after eight years of Obama, but there are very real threats on the horizon if the GOP continues to be a three ring circus.

By the time my Tin anniversary rolls around next year, we’ll know who the next occupant of the White House will be, and God help us no matter how this goes. But I will say this, if it’s Hillary Clinton, the Second Amendment will effectively be dead. The one thing I’d hate is to retire from this blog at some point in the future because all is lost.

  2. Circus eh? Care to make a post out of that?

    I am amazed that a new wave of anti gun regulation has again gained active support by the donkeys.

    3 ring circus?
    More like the Circus sideshow if you ask me. Full of freaks and fakes……

    Thank you for your efforts, you are the best source of PA gun related news I’ve found, and very well written.

    There is much that I am thankful for in this world. And one of those things is have such a wonderful source of info on 2A issues as this great blog. I read it nearly 5 times a week. So if you need anything to help keep you from burning out, please, let us know. You have friends you don’t even know… in places as far away as Washington State.

    “…if it’s Hillary Clinton, the Second Amendment will effectively be dead.”

    Not that it would be a bed of roses, but I’m not convinced that another Clinton presidency would be able to cause that much damage. I would buy a 30-50 year stall in judicial progress, and thus would be an absolute disaster, but I’m not convinced that it would be quite as bad as you imply.
