Lesson Learned

What are the lessons learned over the gun control failure?

Not for us, for the other side.  How will Bloomberg and Obama and any future banner adjust their tactics when they get an oppurtunity, again?

The narrative seems to indicate that they asked for too much in their negotiation as a starting point.  And they waited too long.  When you dance in the blood of children you have to act quickly before it clots up, is going to be their takeaway. 

So look for them, if they are able to control the legislative process, to offer something more limited and faster.  This will require riding herd on the DiFi types who LIVE for the big hearings and big gun-grabs.  I don't know if she has enough self-discipline. 

This also means if they get anything passed next time it will seem pretty innocuous.  Especially to the mass of voters that don't think about gun control either way.  Some closing of the so-called gun show loophole or some quasi registration thing.  They will, again, try to paint our side as hideous monsters for opposing such legislation and might make that stick easier if they start at a lesser restriction rather than shooting for the whole Magillah like they tried to do this time.

So... how do we work the ground ahead of time to foil such a tactic by the bad guys?

I believe the Bad Guys Tactics will be to Defeat anyone who Voted AGAINST the Gun Control Bills and Amendments in the Upcoming Election Cycle, THEN ram Gun Control down our throats if they gain more Power. If Nancy Pelosi gets the House back in 2015, then I expect they'll start the process on their side of the Capital.

I also expect the Anti-Gunners will try to get rid of all the Democrats who sided with the 2A in a Party Purge.

Let's hope some of those Dems don't end up like Trotsky.

I don't think he can DO much with regulations. We'll see, of course.
