Nearly high noon

June 13, 2008

Don’t ever think Paul Helmke will stop going after our guns (especially if he gets Barack “reasonable controls” Obama as an ally in the White House). He just thinks losing in real court will eventually help him in the court of public opinion:

The nation’s leading gun control group filed a “friend of the court” brief back in January defending the gun ban in Washington, D.C. But with the Supreme Court poised to hand down a potentially landmark decision in the case, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence fully expects to lose.

“We’ve lost the battle on what the Second Amendment means,” campaign president Paul Helmke told ABC News. “Seventy-five percent of the public thinks it’s an individual right. Why are we arguing a theory anymore? We are concerned about what we can do practically.”

What 75 percent of the American people believe isn’t what is necessarily so, but in this case there is a nice correlation. Hope Paul is right that his side loses in court.

    While they’re at it, I think they should add DISCOUNTS FOR AMMO to the “medicaid/medicare” gig…
    Discount prescription drugs – discount +P loads…yeah, that works for me.

    I mean even SENIORS have to protect themselves (or at least have fun at the range), right?
    (I know Larry would approve)
