The recent NRA-ILA Leadership Forum was rather underwhelming. The opportunity was given to America, by Americans during the election, to start fresh and start tearing down the old firearms controls. These controls are set forth in Federal law, presidential sanctions on foreign countries, and in BATFE determinations. The United States firearms community has always been divided, just other social issues divides us, but there is hope that the division would be set aside for unity.
Since 2010, we’ve seen a rise in focus on college campus politics. Battles over Campus Carry, the spread of speech intolerances (so called: “Microaggressions” in speech patterns) and the growth of the Safe Space culture — which was told off recently by the Uni. of Chicago.
