Democrats Coming for America’s Guns

A riptide surrounds the Second Amendment. Democrats are pushing the most restrictive gun legislation every proposed – suggesting the Second Amendment has outlived its usefulness. Meantime, they push defunding police, driving unprecedented guns sales for self-defense and from distrust of government. The riptide – pulling both ways – is strong. One side will win.

If 60 votes remain needed – that is, the legislative filibuster holds – these facially unconstitutional prohibitions can be stopped. If the filibuster falters, watch out.
