http://www.examiner.com/gun-rights-in-n ... gun-ownersRepublicans have taken the House. While Democrats retained the Senate, the balance of power is too close for them to steamroll anything through. Add to this mix "pro-gun" Democrats and Second Amendment-friendly leadership in both chambers (assuming Sen. Reid still feels he needs to be), and yesterday appears to have been a good day for gun owners....
And does anyone think those who crave power for themselves and their agenda aren't going to exploit that for all they're worth?
Now is actually the time to press for an advantage, call in our IOUs and see what we can gain in terms of expansion of recognition of our right to keep and bear arms, and in terms of repealing existing gun laws. Because we just don't know how long that advantage will last.
Codrea weighs in on the election and questions whether it is a victory for gun owners. I believe it was. I think we know that we may now can strangle any new federal gun control laws for the next two years, but how about REPEALING some existing gun laws?
I'd love it if they repealed the entire Firearm Owners Protection Act, that our wonderful Republican President Ronald Reagan signed into law back in 1986. :mrgreen:
