Gun guys are up in arms about the Manchin-Toomey background check compromise bill. Cruising through YouTube land I found this clip of Second Amendment Foundation jefe Alan Gottlieb explaining the bill’s advantages and calling it a “Godsend.” Gottleib believes that supporting background checks is the moral position. Worryingly, he goes on to highlight people who “can hardly speak English” who buy a firearm at a gun show without a background check. “Goes on every day at every gun show . . . We can’t tolerate that. It’s not a sustainable position. We’re going to lose all our rights if we allow that to go on.” Realpolitik? Not my forte. But it is Alan’s.
