The fine Americans over at the Violence Policy Center claim that gun ownership is declining, rapidly.
While I doubt the details, I do not doubt that there is an unhealthy trend that is unfavorable for Liberty. Every crop of New Americans is further removed from 2A fundamentals. While 2009 saw 14 million more firearms sold, how many were to new, first-time buyers?
Pay particular attention to the reasons listed for diminishing gun ownership: Key factors cited by the report contributing to the continuing decline in household and personal gun ownership include: the aging of the current-gun owning population and a lack of interest in guns by youth; the end of military conscription; the decreasing popularity of hunting; land-use issues that limit hunting and other shooting activities; environmental and zoning issues that force shooting ranges to close and limit new range construction; and, the increase in single-parent homes headed by women.
Land use issues, zoning that restricts gun ranges, single parent households headed by females…all socially engineered circumstances by the Left.
The reason voting will never be the singular answer to Restoration is because the enemies of Liberty have entrenched themselves in the mechanical fundamental aspects of society so they can guide trends from within bureaucracies.
Single Female Head 0f Household benefits them? Structure tax policy and welfare policies to benefit single mothers and burden married couples.
No gun ranges = fewer gun shooters? Control the zoning boards and deny new permits.
Fewer hunting grounds = fewer hunters/gunners? Cite safety concerns to restrict hunting grounds while promoting Bambi & the cuteness of Polar Bears to kindergarten kids so they grow up further removed from the realities of putting meat on the table.
Voting alone will never achieve Restoration. The infection is too advanced.
