On the the anti’s side, we have Moms Demand Action, preceeded by various other Mike Bloomberg funded groups. And before that, The Brady Campaign. We have had a federal assault weapons ban. We have had plenty of media-glorified mass shooting incidents touted as why we need to get rid of our guns. But despite all that, more states have passed pro-Second Amendment laws than have loosened restrictions on owning guns . . .
And heck, despite the plethora of antigun groups (and I use plethora correctly here, because we only need one of those bastards, thus we have an un-needed surplus) we have pretty much had one lone group speaking out and fighting for our rights this whole time: the NRA. And they have done one hell of a job for us.
So despite all the hoopla, the media coverage, the hypocrisy of Feinstein, Bloomberg, Rosie O’Donnell, and all the claims that Americans are tired of weapons and want gun control, as a whole this country actually seems to be embracing the Second Amendment and the fact that we have the right to defend ourselves and our loved-ones.
The antis seem to change their tune, their talent, and their tactics every 18 months (aside from the rote “think of the children!”), but we keep on keeping on with what we’ve always relied on. And it keeps working almost every time. Maybe that says more about the whole “debate” than anything else.
