Let’s start this post with some cheerful news.
The statists face a huge uphill battle if their campaign to undermine our rights to keep and bear arms. If you want evidence, just look at last year’s special election defeats of two anti-Second Amendment politicians in Colorado (followed by the resignation of another state senator who feared a recall). Or remind yourself about theutter failure of President Obama’s cynical attempt to get more gun control by exploiting the murder of children in Newtown, Connecticut.
And check out these two maps to see how we’re making progress at the state level.
But this doesn’t mean we can relax our vigil. Showing contempt for America’s separation-of-powers system, the President repeatedly has asserted that he has the power to unilaterally change government policy. And just as hearbitrarily rewrites Obamacare, he claims he can impose more gun control.
But that only allows him to nudge policy in the wrong direction since the courts have been reasonably helpful on the Second Amendment in recent years.
