Post-Boston Gun Sales Offer More Proof That Gun Grabbers’ Agenda Is Backfiring

Every time there’s a highly publicized violent crime with multiple victims in America, liberals co-opt the tragedy to talk about updating the 2nd Amendment to make the country safer.

Meanwhile, normal Americans go to gun shops and arms themselves against the twofold — but strangely related — threat of domestic terrorism and government tyranny.

Breitbart recounted, on Tuesday, the devotion of attendees at the Syracuse, N.Y., gun show over the weekend. People had to wait two hours in nasty weather just to get inside.

According to one shop owner, the threat of additional terror attacks, combined with ongoing fears that Congress isn’t done with fiddling with Constitutional gun rights, had most attendees showing up not to just to browse or sell; they came to buy. The problem is demand is so high that gun selection is limited, and ammunition orders are so far behind that vendors have stopped taking new ones.

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.
