.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I think it is worthy of a reminder every now and then.

Yes, it is worthy of a reminder. The last time I contacted the NRA via their website, HR 45 still didn't have a co-sponsor. I haven't checked on the status of it lately, but my guess is that it doesn't have enough support at this time. I'll be watching to see how it pans out.

I know it has motivated me.   I've bought a new rifle, a new hall cleaner (holds 8 rds of 00 buck), and have decided I need 500 rds for every gun that will pop a cap.  They are all locked securely away except for the hall cleaner and the one for CC, in other words, those I use every day.  My old hall cleaner would only hold 5 rds so it's now my backup.

 So glad I bought both of my reloading presses and all of my components back when stuff was cheap. Even if this never comes up for a vote it is very telling about it's supporters.

HALL CLEANER !  :-D   I've never heard that term from LEOs or former LEOs before, but I like it. My personal favorite is my Remington 870 Police 12 gauge pump, 18" Improved Cylinder Barrel . I replaced the wood furniture with Hogue's short LOP rubber overmolded fiberglass stock and added Scattergun's Ghost Sights and a Six Shotshell Caddy attached to the receiver, and a 2 shot extension, just like you I've loaded her with 00 Buck, but I've added 4 Rifled Slugs to the Caddy. I really feel sorry for the Thugs that pick my house  :evil: but at the same time, I hope to God that I don't have to use it.

I almost bought a street sweeper before they were banned and COLLECTED.  ( I just hadn't saved the money - then the price went way up, then I hadn't saved the money)
