DRAWING A BEAD
Brady Campaign “Giddy” About Election
Richard A. Pearson
As I predicted, John Bolton, a fierce defender of the Second Amendment, was
among the first casualties of the Democratic landslide victory in Congress.
Bolton, who fought the United Nations’ (UN) anti-gun movement to a standstill,
is gone. As a result, the international anti-gun movement is energized – and why
shouldn’t they be? With the change in power in Congress, not only have votes of
individual congressmen shifted to the left, but also so has the control of the
all important Congressional Committees. Anti-gun legislators Charles Schumer,
Dick Durbin, Edward Kennedy, Diane Feinstein, Hillary Clinton, and Barbara Boxer
will soon be in leadership positions. That means every anti-gun bill ever
conceived will have smooth sailing into the committee structure. We will see
anti-gun proposals at the national, state, and local levels. Anti-gun force will
probe for every weakness at every level.
On November 14, 2006, a week after the election, the Cook County Board recalled
a proposed “assault weapons ban” from the table and passed it. This ban, which
was not on the agenda because it was a tabled motion, bans even pump and
semi-automatic shotguns. It is easy to see where the anti-gunners are heading
with this. In the past, some hunters have thought these proposed bans would
never apply to them – well, here is your answer. Hunters are directly in the
line of fire.
