Quite frankly whatever good liberals did they are working pretty hard to undo it.

This is exactly why I really can't stand either party. Democrats wanna disarm us while republicans arm the enemy.
What world is this?

Of Course Commie's don't want Americans to have Guns , it would make it easier to Subvert and Destroy our Country from within that way .
No, but the US government has undergone a drastic shift in procedural goals since the ratification of the Constitution. The Constitution and Bill of Rights, in principle, defines more restrictions on the government than it does restrictions on the People. When was the last time DC passed anything which restricted or removed power from the federal government and granted power directly to the People?
The definition of fascism is essentially consolidation of power and authority to the highest levels of national government... the complete opposite of the Framer's plan. The 10th Amendment:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
Federal gun control is in direct violation of the 10th, as nowhere in the Constitution does it provide Congress any authority to do anything related to firearms EXCEPT defense of the 2nd Amendment's sanctity.
Firearms can be used by law enforcement, the military and paramilitary, or security personnel protecting property of state importance (including the arms industry, financial institutions, storage of resources, and scientific research institutions).
Civilian ownership of firearms is largely restricted to non-individual entities such as sporting organisations, hunting reserves, and wildlife protection, management and research organizations. The chief exception to the general ban for individual gun ownership is for the purpose of hunting.
A communist state is a state that is governed by a single party adhering to some variation of Marxism–Leninism as its guiding ideology. The term "Communist state" is used by Western historians, political scientists and media to refer to these countries. However, contrary to Western usage, these states do not describe themselves as "communist" nor do they claim to have achieved communism; they refer to themselves as Socialist states or Workers' states that are in the process of constructing socialism.
On Monday evening, Senate Democrats put party over principle in rejecting common-sense, reasonable gun control measures. After the mass murder at Orlando gay club Pulse, Sen. Chris Murphy and his colleagues staged a flashy talk-a-thon in which they demanded that votes be taken on legislation strengthening gun control laws. The Senate Republicans agreed to the Democrats’ demand. Democrats got what they asked for, then blew it.
