"“It’s definitely going to be an uphill battle,” said Taylor, elected in 2008 to the state’s House of Representatives.“People feel their right to bear arms is being threatened.”
Gun-control advocates are finding it difficult to capitalize on outrage over the Martin case. The dynamics are similar in other states where efforts are under way to weaken or repeal the National Rifle Association-backed measures known as Stand Your Ground. Lawmakers have introduced rollbacks in South Carolina and Louisiana and say they plan to in Wisconsin andTexas."
Don't kid yourselves, folks. The four and a half million members of the NRA (me among them) and the extremely well organized lobbying effort of the group in Washington and the state capitals will stop the anti-gun crowd in their tracks. There will be no repeal of any of the "Stand Your Ground" laws in the states and BHO will not run on an anti-gun platform. In fact, his thinly disguised position on the Second Amendment will cost him a lot of votes no matter what the Democratic Party platform says. The prospect of his nominations to the federal bench on this as well as other issues insures a negative vote from many people.
The attempt to use the Martin/Zimmerman case as propaganda for federal or state gun control legislation is a total waste of time, and serves no purpose other than to irritate the hundred million plus gun owners in the United States.
That's democracy folks. Save your money and breath. pl
