It has been all over for Feinstein’s gun grab for weeks. Her bill was dead on arrival, as I wrote two weeks ago. But now the Senate Democrats’ softer core version is DOA.
There is a group of Republicans ready to imitate Rand Paul’s 13-hour marathon. They see the publicity he got, and they are trying to be “We, too.” Mr. Paul went to Washington. Mr. Rubio now wants in on the deal. He has announced his determination to join the filibuster.
This will foul up the Senate for years. Cloture requires 60 votes. The Democrats won’t get them on gun control. They won’t get them on a lot of issues.
This will put backbone into House Republicans who might waver.
Yesterday, I said that Vice President Biden had already given a concession speech on gun control. This confirms it.
The gun control forces are a spent force today. Across the nation, the Second Amendment movement is gaining a new lease on life. Guns are selling. Ammo is selling.
The number-one threat today is that gun stores are having difficulty getting ammunition to sell. At today’s prices, there are shortages.
Second amendment supporters are no longer shamed by fake guilt because of a maniacal murderer who guns down innocent people. The Left used to be able to milk those incidents for all they were worth. They are no longer worth anything. President Obama is playing the Newtown card for all it is worth. It is not working.
Gun sales rise after every incident, because gun owners know that the Left will not be able to resist organizing another assault on the second amendment. Well, the Left’s political “assault weapon” — an incident — no longer has any ammunition.
Let’s hear it for the filibuster! The filibuster is back!
