Obama gunning for for more controls in the Midwest...

Anything to avoid tackling the most important issue facing our country--our economy, debt and deficit.  It is worth noting that Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who was killed at a gun range in Texas over the weekend was vehemently against additional gun control measures.  He noted that Switzerland has a high percentage of gun owners, concealed carriers, and crime is almost non-existent there.  The left is energized, but as Forbes points out today, the influence war is being won by the 2nd Amendment defenders, despite the fact that 2nd Amendment-defending Republican pols have left the heavy-lifing to the NRA: 

It’s a Marathon, not a sprint. It seems the NRA has the stamina to out-run the pro-gun control movement. They are persistent, un-yielding and gaining influence. It will be interesting to see how the pro-gun control voice responds and how the influence between the two groups changes as the debate persists.

The pro-gun rights voice is rapidly gaining influence while the pro-gun control voice has tapered in recent weeks. Momentum is shifting and the gun control debate is becoming a platform benefiting gun rights advocates.
