A Good Year for Gun Rights

In the aftermath of the horrific murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012, gun grabbers led by Sen. Dianne Feinstein pushed hard to enact “sensible gun control.” Fortunately, at the national level at least, they were unsuccessful in restoring things like the ban on so-called “assault weapons.” And even better, Second Amendment proponents were able to advance gun rights in several states. To name a few victories, Idaho, Georgia and Indiana expanded the number of places where concealed carry is permitted, Missouri now permits teachers to carry firearms and the Ninth Circuit Court struck down California’s “just cause” concealed carry requirement. All this while more and more Americans are buying guns. Clearly, we should never let down our guard (see the UN’s anti-gun treaty as an example), but there is reason for optimism as Liberty advances.
