It looks like the Daley machine, faced with the destruction of its own gun laws when McDonald is handed down, is lashing out any way it can. If I had to take a big picture look at what’s going on here, with the push in Illinois, to Bloomberg’s attacks on Pennsylvania, upstate New York and Ohio, it would be the old guard trying one last ditch effort to assert itself. Let’s hope this ends up being their “Battle of theÂ Bulge”
Part of me thinks we’ve become unstoppable, but I try to keep that in check. Things can turn quickly. This is not a done deal yet. It wouldn’t take much for the momentum to begin to shift the other way.
