The Momentum Has Shifted

Three decades in the cold has left thinking Americans plenty ready to fight for their basic human right of self defense. Taking back the night, you might say.

Post-Heller, with the law and a landmark Supreme Court decision on the side of average moms and dads, the momentum has shifted. The Chicago Tribune reports on how self defense advocates and the shooting sports community are pushing citizen safety laws at every legislative level to reverse decades of meaningless, ineffective gun control laws.

It is the grassroots pushing this. It has always been the grassroots. And average Americans who merely want to be left alone, and enjoy the sport of their choice, and have the unfettered ability to choose the tool of their choice for their family's safety, are doing the heavy lifting.
