A lot has happened this past week regarding our Second Amendment rights — much of it under the guise of finding a “middle ground.”
- Walmart to stop selling handgun and “short-barrel rifle ammunition” (.223 and 5.56)
- Walmart, Walgreens and other retailers telling their customers they can no longer open carry in the stores
- San Francisco declaring the NRA a “domestic terrorist organization”
Are we so focused on the “trees” that are being cut down by these particular actions that we’re missing the “forest” of our Second Amendment rights being destroyed?
To paraphrase “The Hollow Men” by T.S. Eliot:
This is the way our Second Amendment rights are taken away
Not with a bang but with a whimper.
