The most important factor we as gun owners have in our favor is that our position is not fueled by emotions, but upon logic and reason.
May it be so! All I'm sure of at this point is the loudly self-proclaimed "progressives" have turned this most recent massacre ito their golden opportunity to express their deep, abiding, blind hatred of both the Second Amendment and all of us who believe it means exactly what it says.
Leftist extremists resolved in the 1980s to isolate and demonize individual kinds of guns, abuse the raw power of the feral government to ban them, then choose the next kind of firearm and reapply that same scheme until the Second Amendment was rendered null and void for all practical purpose. I don't doubt that's still their malicious intent, but their first and last goal is to deliver a hard slap across the face of all us "Neanderthals," "knuckle draggers," "gun lobby dupes," "enablers of domestic terrorism," et cetera ad infinitum. Expressing their blind hatred is their first and foremost goal.
To give credit where it's due, even the Ku Klux Klan in its heyday never hated half so bitterly or persistently as "progressives."
fast and furious was in place to do just this.
It is very easy for the left to simply pivot and take the fast and furious propaganda and appy it here.
We see this now with the Assault Media. Look at CNN with their British commentators (not just piers but ALL of them). Guess which side they would have been on in 1776.
MSNBC has lunatic mathews (jimmy carter’s familiar) and the rest of the commies.
FNC has all the doofus field trolls.
CNBC has NYC morons.
