While we are not out of the woods yes, I think we can all give ourselves a big pat on the back for winning round one. They will be back for more, and there will be 2014, which will be critical. We cannot allow the gun community to return to their slumber. The gun rights machine is fired up and engaged, and it’s important to keep everyone involved so that we can not only push our opponents back, as we have done today, but drive them to political extinction. We came very close, once again, to achieving National Reciprocity in the Senate. We won today because millions of gun owners woke up and did something. Let’s hope we can keep that up.
No vote on either gun bans or magazine bans cracked a bare majority of a Democratically controlled Senate, with the full weight of the White House and Bloomberg driving the anti-gun effort. We have succeeded in moving the center of this issue to the point where gun bans are practically a third rail. That is a great victory.
After all he and Bitter did tremendous work on running herd over the gun rights community.
Stay active stay engaged. Find out how your senators voted today. And contact them to either praise or punish them.
We can't go back to sleep. Our opponents sure won't.
Also perhaps take Tam's advice and give the NRA's tip jar a bit of love. They deserve it too.
