Gun rights activists are on a political roll with four recent win
By Perry Chiaramonte, April 03, 2017, FoxNews.com

Second Amendment advocates are on a bit of a political roll recently, with four major victories in just one week.

House Speaker Paul Ryan pulled an anti-gun healthcare proposal from consideration; the governor of North Dakota signed a bill letting residents carry a firearm without a permit; New Mexico lawmakers defeated a gun registry bill and the Supreme Court ruled for a defendant whom a gun rights group had supported.

“It gives us a lot of hope,†Erich Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, said to Fox News. “We just spent the past eight years on the defensive. Now we are playing offensive ball.â€

Fox News need to pull its collective head out of its collective ass. While you can look at a win as a win no matter how small, none of those wins can overshadow the huge amount of harm done to all citizens and the 2nd Amendment by the recent deplorable rulings by the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals (Kolbe v Hogan) upholding Maryland's ban on the entire AR15 class of firearms in direct contradiction to the Supreme Court's DC v Heller opinion and the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals (Scott v Sylvester) upholding qualified immunity for the cops that can shoot you dead without saying a word to you if you answer your door holding a firearm.

The Senate needs to confirm Neil Gorsuch (presumably) to the Supreme Court asap so that one or more definitive gun rights cases can be heard in front of a presumably 2nd Amendment friendly court.
