“Before organizations like ours existed, this Colorado recall campaign would have been a slam dunk for the gun lobby,” Gabby Giffords & Mark Kelly assert in an email blast to supporters of Americans for Responsible [though thankfully not final] Solutions. “But whatever happens next Tuesday night, those days are over. And that’s because of people like you who have had enough of the gun violence ravaging our communities and the politicians afraid to stop it. So far, almost 13,000 Americans for Responsible Solutions supporters have donated to help us run television ads supporting both of the candidates facing recall for passing expanded background checks earlier this year. The private polls show a dead-heat and the early vote numbers give us some reason for optimism, but there’s still time before the polls close and the counting begins. The gun lobby isn’t going down without a fight — and neither are we.” Sounds like the doyennes of disarmament know they’re going to lose. What then? Will the recall be a waypoint on the journey towards gun rights restoration or a Pyrrhic victory? Lest we forget, the lights are going out in California . . . What should be the next move for friends of firearms freedom?
