Myths and Facts

The New York Times wants us to believe that it’s a myth that gun control is a third rail issue in American politics.  Of course, they probably overlooked Dave Kopel’s study of the NRA’s influence in electoral politics.  They must also not be paying any attention to polling data lately, or the shortages of guns and ammunition we’re experiencing due to through the roof demand.

If they want to pretend that those numbers can’t be translated into votes from angry gun owners on election day 2010, they are welcome to take the New York Times advice.  But I suspect Congress sees the writing on the walls.  We may end up a European-style social welfare state before this is all said and done, but we’ll be an armed European-style social welfare state.

  2. Hmmm……..Didn’t they tell us for weeks last Nov/Dec, that it wasn’t economic or other issues that got Obama into office, and that it was actually gun control?

    Geez, can’t they make up there mind?

    Best of both worlds, IMHO…

    Maybe in your state, but not in mine. Any of the states that wish to abandon the foundations that America is founded upon and join the European Union are free to do so, but the buck stops here.
