When the anti-gun crazy gets turned up to 11, it’s amazing what can sound like a good idea during an elevator pitch.

That's exactly what I thought when I read "11."

The “tipping point” that others mention - it’s a rapidly shrinking vision in the rear view mirror.

Resistance. Restoration. Retribution.

The time for talk and compromise is over.
