Of course, the left-wing is having a case of the vapors.
West Virginia Overrides Governor’s Veto To Pass Radical NRA-Backed Gun LawThat's their headline, not mine. From what I read, the bill doesn't allow full open carry, but simply decrees that no permit is necessary for persons over 21 to carry a concealed firearm.
This is a huge win, not just for gun rights, but for freedom everywhere. As I understand it, the anti-gunners threw millions of dollars into the fight, and they lost big. The nanny-staters spent millions and have zero return for their dollars, and that's a huge win in my book.
As Joe puts it:
Probably the best we can do is make the cost, in time, money, and public opinion, as high as practical such that the return on Bloomberg’s investment is as low as possible. In the case of West Virginia, gun rights supporters caused him to do the equivalent of setting a very large pile of $100 bills on fire. Bloomberg has an distressingly large number of $100 bills he is willing to throw on the fire but getting nothing reports of his failures in return for spending large amounts of money will be discouraging to both him and the people he is funding. It also demonstrates that the claim that “the greedy gun manufactures with lots of money” and the NRA get votes by outbidding the virtuous anti-gun activists is false. With this key assumption falsified it demoralizes them and makes it more difficult for them to recruit additional people and raise money from other people.Let Freedom Ring
