"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

2013: Some Big Wins for 2nd Amendment Supporters

"I shall protect you and heal you. You need no guns nor health insurance. I am the Light-bringer."

And this despite a relentless push by Obama and Democrats to restrict guns to the wealthy and other deemed "worthy" of protection.

From AWR Hawkins "Top 5 Pro-Gun Moments in 2013" at Beitbart:

Number five on the list is the lopsided win NRA-backed Virginia delegates secured over delegates backed by Michael Bloomberg and Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) on November 5. Out of 67 delegate races, NRA-backed candidates won 65.  
Number three is the way sheriffs throughout the country stood against gun control and literally refused to enforce new gun laws. This started with Jackson County Kentucky Sheriff Denny Peyman who spoke up in January during the intense federal gun control push following Sandy Hook. Said Peyman, "My office will not comply with any federal action which violates the United States Constitution or the Kentucky Constitution which I swore to uphold."  
Number two in our top five list is the successful Colorado recall movement that tossed state senators John Morse (D-Colo. Springs) and Angela Giron (D-Pueblo) out of office for heaving gun control upon Coloradans. 
The September 10th recalls drew people from all demographics, including many of the young voters whom the Obama campaign once targeted and energized to support Obama. The success of the recalls sent a signal that the people want politicians to leave their guns alone.

Check out all five of Hawkins' list at the link at the top.

While this is generally good news for people who like a low crime rate and modicum of safety, the bad news is that Obama and the Leftist Dems on the national scene have shown the willingness to double down on stupidity regardless of the political consequences-- ObamaCare anyone? There will be much more standing on the backs of dead children to push anti-gun legislation in 2014.

"Never let a crisis/tragedy go to waste." It's the Obama way.
