Yeah, the anti-gun people say the NRA is paranoid because it thinks they want to do away with the Second Amendment.   But retired Justice John Paul Stevens, 97, tells it like it is.  He lost in the court's vote on Heller, so his solution is to repeal the Second Amendment.  Then, if they can't stop people from speaking out against that, they'll want to repeal the First.  Then the Fourth and the Fifth...and so on, until we look like Nazi Germany or the USSR or ... You name it.

We members of the NRA are not imagining the threat to American freedom.  Justice Stevens is finally letting the Left's agenda slip out from under its rock.

The Second Amendment is the only thing that protects our rights. Once they take it away, the rest of our rights will be gone also.

It was evident from some of the signs at the march also.  One of my liberal friends told me the goal was to bring our gun laws in line with other countries so that we had reduced gun deaths.  Well, what did other countries do? 
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

I don't remember if I posted this here, but this is what they are trying to get on the ballot in Oregon.  They are sending kids around to get signatures.

Read through and see how many of your weapons might be banned AND confiscated unless you meet the threshold to register them with the state police.  The same state police that killed LaVoy Finicum.
