How did we get through?

How did we get through the 1960s and 1970s and 1980s without a LOT more gun control?

I mean, they go full court press of any shooting, today, with two or more victims that isn't standard gang land.

And with that they are getting more and more traction toward passing restrictions.  But they are fighting a trend that doesn't help them.  Murders are down, and have been for decades.

Not true in the old days.  Murders were trending UP, those decades.  Awfully.  Plus high profile assassinations.  How did we escape with ONLY the 1968 GCA and the 1994 AWB?  If the bad guys coming after our rights couldn't make a total ban out of those trendlines then what hope do they have now?

Well, they always have a chance, but the upstream swim for them is an advantage for the good guys.
