With the 2016 Presidential Election done and over with, the NRA has promised a push against standing Federal and State-level anti-firearms laws already on the books. Wayne LaPierre’s comments are seemingly focused on the State-level. The main goal seems to be to make examples out of California and New York.

As a college student, it was easy to comes to terms with how badly this could go in regards to the future of the Republic. I came to the conclusion that, right now, college campuses are the Petri dishes of what the United States could become. A majority of college campuses do not allow for self defense, they abide by the unconstitutional Gun-Free School Zones Act and they support limits on speech on certain topics.
