Anti-gun movement gathering steam
by Daniel White, Cleveland Gun Rights Examiner
Despite Americans across the country voting with their wallets and causing one of the largest spikes in gun sales in recent memory as a silent protest against the threat of new anti-gun measures by the Obama administration, the assault on those gun freedoms is gathering momentum.
With groups like the Brady Campaign calling for new gun control laws, such as renewing the "Assault Weapons Ban" and making it permanent, some liberal lawmakers are testing the limits to see what they can get away with under the new administration.
One such measure is an attempt to circumvent a gun ban by making ammunition inaccessible. Ineffective microstamping will not solve a single crime, but will serve to drive manufacturers out of business and price ammunition out of the reach of most Americans.
Another lie perpetuated by the gun grabbers is the "gun show loophole". Anti-gun pundits are pushing legislation in several states to try to outlaw private gun sales and shut down gun shows.
Here in Cleveland, the City is thumbing its nose at the state legislature and again claiming that statewide preemption of gun laws doesn't apply to them, despite a ruling by the Ohio Supreme Court in the OFCC v. Clyde case upholding the Constitutionality of preemption.
In Connecticut, a movement is underway that could enable the Department of Public Safety to shut down all gun ranges, except that those used solely by law enforcement personnel would be exempt.
Normally, we would look to the U.S. Attorney General to put a stop on these attempts to restrict our Constitutional Rights. But, with the apparent pending approval of Eric Holder as AG, the fox will indeed be guarding the henhouse.
Not since the Clinton years have we seen such a widespread attack on gun rights on so many fronts. The stakes couldn't be higher, and there is no time left to wait for the "other guy" to do something to protect your right to own and carry a gun for self defense. Grassroots activists are needed now more than ever, and if we fail, our rights will forever be lost.
