Are Gun Activists Too Happy?

Have people concerned with gun rights become complacent? Has the fire in our collective belly gone out? Glenn Reynolds examines the issue. Money quote:

So does this mean that the NRA crowd has gotten too complacent? Possibly. There hasn’t been a serious threat to gun rights in a decade, and the biggest campaign for the gun-rights crowd has been the expansion of generous concealed-carry laws to cover nearly the entire nation, with restrictions on gun-carrying in places like parks, restaurants, and other public places gradually falling as well. In that kind of environment, it’s easy to lower your guard, and they’ve come a long way from the Charlton Heston “cold, dead hands” days.

I don't think we're in danger on this issue. Yet. But it would be a mistake to get too comfortable with our victories.
