Senate Democrats Gear up to Push More Gun Control

Tuesday, 29 July 2014 19:06

“More people are carrying concealed in this country, and yet the gun homicide rate has been dropping precipitously. We are safer today with more guns ‘on the street’ being carried in good people’s hands.” -- GOA Communications Director Erich Pratt on WPFL, Florida (July 28, 2014).
There has been incredible news in the 2nd Amendment community over the past several days.
You may have heard that a DC federal judge struck down Washington, DC’s ban on carrying firearms in public on Saturday. Judge Frederick Scullen’s decision referenced the Supreme Court’s decisions in Heller (2008) and McDonald (2010) -- arguing that the carry ban violates the U.S. Constitution.
And last week, a concealed carry holder in Darby, Pennsylvania, saved countless lives when he used his firearm to stop a killer who was bent on taking down even more innocent lives.alt
Police said the armed doctor “saved lives” and prevented a disgruntled patient from walking down the hall and gunning down people “until he ran out of ammunition.”
One would like to think that such good news would serve as an object lesson for our elected leaders.  But not for Harry Reid and his cohorts.
