Did anyone really think she’d be indicted? Particularly after Bill’s tarmac tête-à-tête last week? And Hillary telegraphing that of course she’d be thrilled to retain Loretta Lynch if she’s elected? That’s clearly not how things work these days, David Petreus et al. notwithstanding. After all, she didn’t mean to!
This is, of course, bad news for guns and those who care about the civilian right to keep and bear them. If elected — and Nate Silver is optimistic — it seems a good bet that she’ll make a California-like push for new gun control legislation — at minimum, a reprise of her hubby’s “assault weapon” ban — as one of her first priorities. Never mind the generation or more of anti-gun rights rulings we can look forward to from a decidedly more left-leaning Supreme Court.
Maybe it’s time to look to the skies.
