    Facts in evidence:

    Imperfect gun reforms failed in Congress.

    Thousands of state, local, and federal gun laws have been challenged and are percolating up to SCOTUS. The supremes have already declined to review 60 cases that have made up that far. The vast majority of long standing state and local laws are being upheld at the district, state, and appeals court level.

    Eventually we will get some clarity about which regulations are constitutional and on which grounds. For the time being all the action is at the state level.

    There are a growing number of legal opinions articulating the boundaries of the legitimate right and duty of state and local government to balance expression of the RKBA with the rights of all the residents (armed and unarmed) to go about their lives in public without having a gun shoved in their face.

      There is nothing in this comment thread pertaining to constitutionality.
      This thread is about support & electoral consequences.

      "rights of all the residents to go about their lives in public without having a gun shoved in their faces"
      You're in luck.
      Everyone already has that right.

      Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.
