Firearm advocates hold new Congress' feet to the fire

The mid-term elections were a big win for gun rights and therefore a big win for liberty and the Republic. Gun rights represent liberty in its most personal form, and individual liberty is what made this nation great. Therefore, what's good for gun rights is good for the nation.

To each of the millions of tea-party patriots and constitutional conservatives who helped beat back the anti-constitutional agenda this year, gun voters say, "Welcome to the party, pal. We've been fighting this war for decades."

As the nation moves forward from the Nov. 2 rejection of the Obama/Reid/Pelosi socialist/globalist vision, gun rights will continue to play an important role directly or indirectly and this is an excellent opportunity for supporters of individual rights to press our advantage. The Second Amendment and "gun control" was a back burner issue in the recent elections, but the gun issue was and remains significant. The right of the people to keep and bear arms disturbs the ruling class like no other, making support for the Second Amendment the "miner's canary" of the Constitution. It's been that way for over a century, and that role has not changed.

In the coming months there will be debate, argument and votes in Congress about taxes, spending, health care, corporate regulation, earmarks and all manner of other complex and confusing issues. The politicians will do their best to convolute those issues beyond comprehension.
