All in all it’s been a rough month for the guns, made even more difficult by the fact that after the Republicans decided the 2nd Amendment trumped Benghazi as a campaign issue, Hillary shot right back and said that she was ready, willing and able to take on the NRA. So the question has to be asked: How come, as Brady’s Dan Gross says, we seem to have reached a “tipping point” in the debate over guns?
Here it is short and sweet. Everyone’s sick of the NRA. Sick of the killings, sick of the loss of life, sick of the blind devotion to the 2nd Amendment and sick of all those sacred gun ‘rights.’ Wayne-o is going online today to remind his members that Obama wants to take away their guns. It’s a hollow argument falling on increasingly deaf ears.
Of course, that “Everyone’s sick of the NRA” is just a bit of wishful thinking, specially since the latest Gallup poll shows that the NRA enjoys the support of the majority of Americans.
Mike The Gun Guy is calling premature victory because a couple od cases went south in court. Him and the average Gun Control idjit do not understand we expect that to happen because they had happened before and they will happen again.
But instead of curling up in a fetal position and raise out fist to the skies demanding that a vengeful deity come save us, we pick up ourselves, dust off our clothes and go back into the scrum for some more fighting. We love a good fight.
The Opposition is all aroused at the latest Gun Control wave of talking from the Democrat nominees for President. They think it means this time is for sure they will have their gun control measures passed before the end of the year. Only a couple of problems with that: It ain’t gonna happen this year or the next. All this talk is just Monica’s ex-boyfriend’s wife and Senile White Male Communist getting a rise out of the base for the Primaries. They need the Thinkprogress and assorted groups to vote for them and cinch the nomination and you only do that by being more lefty than Stalin.
I am willing to bet that once that the Primaries are over, the Gun Control noise from the Dem Electoral Camp will all but disappear from the radar. If the pundits are right and Hillary is the nominee, you will have a better chance to have her talk about the Rose Law Form missing files and Vince Foster than have her come strong against Gun Rights. She is not stupid, she knows what it cost to the party and to Al Gore to piss gun owners off. If she could get away with waving a flintlock musket above her head, she would do so.
Ours is a war of attrition. It works, we wear them out because we have the numbers and the long-term vision. They are the microwave crowd, they need eternal solutions in the time it takes to heat up a burrito during commercials or they get stupid and desperate. And no all of their followers are One Issue voters, but will vote one year for Universal Health Care and the next year to kill it after they got their new and increased payments with 50% less coverage and higher deductible.
And as for us:
WE ALWAYS VOTE GUNS.
Learn it. Love it. Live it.
