It’s the law and what next?
PRESIDENT BUSH SIGNS “PROTECTION OF LAWFUL COMMERCE IN ARMS ACT” LANDMARK NRA VICTORY NOW LAW
I don’t think so much misinformation has been perpetuated by editorial boards regarding this bill since the renewal of the PATRIOT Act and the assault weapons ban. It’s a victory for gun rights only in the sense that it gives the anti-gunnies something to cry about. And that was the only reason I really supported it. After all, special protection is special protection.
That said, what now? What’s next on the agenda? While the antis are down, will the gun lobby press the advantage or lay low? Not sure. Part of me wonders if getting aggressive would lead to opportunities for the press to successfully continue its vilification of the gun lobby. Another part says: kick their bitchy little asses. Quite a conundrum.
So, what next? National CCW? Repeal the NFA tax? Repeal the 1986 Hughes Amendment? My personal favorite would be repealing the Hughes Amendment.
Oh, where to begin?
Update: Thanks to GLN, I forgot all about that sporting purpose hooey. That’s probably first on my list now or at least tied with the Hughes Amendment.
