You're really are desperate to get away from your erosion claim, aren't you? Okay, I know I can't recall every bill that passed in the last 51 years, but here are some off the top of my head.anygunanywhere wrote: ↑Fri Jun 07, 2019 6:50 pmProgress since 1968? What progress??Charles L. Cotton wrote: ↑Fri Jun 07, 2019 6:22 pmYou made a false statement and you are now trying to avoid the question. You claimed a slow erosion of Second Amendment rights, but you can only list one item -- bump stocks. You know quite well the only point I'm making is that there is no slow erosion of Second Amendment rights. Yes, there are restrictions that should not exist, but they have been in place for decades. Over those same decades, we have expanded gun rights at the federal level. Not as much as in Texas and other states, but progress has been made, contrary to your insinuation.anygunanywhere wrote: ↑Fri Jun 07, 2019 2:41 pmMy approach is not a Chicken Little approach. I'm not screaming that the sky is falling. so please stop mischaracterizing my comments. The bump stock ban is a Trump presidency ban. Give me Trump presidency advancements in our 2A freedoms. I never brought up the NFA or GCA. You did. I'm certain I could mischaracterize your claim of advancements since the GCA and NFA. THE ATF is still in full force. Everything banned and regulated by the NFA and GCA are still banned and regulated. The Feds have not let up one bit. Oh wait!! Obama lets us carry in National Parks!! Halleluia!! We get to carry on land that we, American Citizens Own!Charles L. Cotton wrote: ↑Fri Jun 07, 2019 2:35 pmYou expressly stated "At the rate our 2A rights are slowly being eroded, we are dying a death of 1000 cuts. One event, bump stocks, is neither 1,000 cuts nor a slow "erosion." My point is the Chicken Little approach doesn't help advance Second Amendment rights, especially when you conspicuously ignore progress on that front.anygunanywhere wrote: ↑Fri Jun 07, 2019 2:30 pmTo the hundreds of thousands of patriots who own them, Charles, this is a big deal. It DOES speak volumes if you ask them. It is an erosion. Whether or not you hold this as a big deal is your opinion and it really doesn't matter if I wrote a book on erosion of 2A rights or gave you one example, the bump stock ban is an infringement.Charles L. Cotton wrote: ↑Fri Jun 07, 2019 2:24 pmSo your "slow erosion" consists of one thing -- bump stocks.anygunanywhere wrote: ↑Fri Jun 07, 2019 1:07 pmBump Stocks. That is an erosion. First the ATF ruled they were not machine guns. Now they are machine guns.Charles L. Cotton wrote: ↑Fri Jun 07, 2019 12:27 pmYou say that "our 2A rights are slowly being eroded, . . ." Please list the specific erosion(s) you mean.

It is time the other side gets cut. Multiple times. Our side is tired of losing. And don’t even say the word compromise.
I would like to hear about all of the advances we have achieved at the federal level in the last two years.
I asked for advances we gained at the federal level in the last two years.
As for your two-year question; 1) I didn't claim any claims as did you; and 2) of course you want to limit any claims of advancement of firearms rights to two years because you know there have been several since the 1968 Gun Control act or the 1934 NFA.
Of course you didn't bring up the GCA 68 or the NFA. You don't want to acknowledge the progress we've made since 1968. BTW, Obama didn't let us carry in national parks. That provision was shoved down his throat as part of the credit card bill have was forced to sign.
1. Firearm Owners Protection Act of 1986 protects travelers with firearms;
2. Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act prohibiting frivolous lawsuits to put manufacturers and dealers out of business;
3. Emergency Powers Act prohibiting New Orleans-style firearm confiscation during disasters;
4. Prohibition on ban of firearms in National Parks
5. Repeal of ban on buying long guns in states other than one's state of residence or contiguous states;
6. Prohibiting the destruction of military brass;
There are probably more, but that's what I can recall at this point.
