“‘The Nation’ will not be the organ of any party, sect, nor body. It will, on the contrary, make an earnest effort to bring to the discussion of political and social questions a really critical spirit, and to wage war upon the vices of violence, exaggeration, and misrepresentation by which so much political writing of the day is marred.”
“The Nation’s” founding prospectus, 1865
Oh, that our modern media would even begin to adhere to such a motto!
A National CCW Reciprocity Bill has passed the House, and is currently headed to the Senate, where hysterical Democrats and their media lackeys, deriding the bill as “Apocalypse USA” (or is it “Armageddon” this time?), are closing ranks to destroy this legislation.
Democrats smugly made all the same dire predictions, time and again, when “shall-issue” state CCW legislation was passed, state-by-state. They screamed even louder when laws were expanded to include “Preemption,” “Take-Your-Gun-to-Work,” and “No-Duty-to-Retreat” provisions. And, when the “wild-west-bloodbath” they solemnly (and ever so self-righteously) predicted, never happened (in fact, violent crime went down, every time), Democrats suddenly developed ecumenical amnesia!
They apparently think the rest of us did too!
Democrats still reflexively attack, without exception, any and all pro-Second Amendment legislation. They always have.
Democrats should more appropriately be fearing both their congressional colleagues, and their sleazy media cheerleaders and apologists, who are being outed in droves as the serial women-abusers they are (and have been for decades, probably longer), instead of illogically fearing their fellow citizens, who desire simply to be able to lawfully own and carry concealed firearms in order to protect themselves and their loved ones from violent criminals.
Democrats seeking reelection need to worry less about shielding and protecting detestable criminals, less about “regulating” good citizens, less about characterizing themselves as “so pure,” and more about simply allowing good citizens to take reasonable measures to protect themselves.
“All truth passes through three stages: (1) Ridicule, (2) Violent opposition, (3) Acceptance as ‘self-evident’”
