Adults in Charge?

Long-time gun rights advocate and Gun Owners Caucus Vice Chair, Chuck Butcher, has posted a good summary of a concern currently gripping many gun rights advocates:

Will the War on Drugs be the new pretext for destroying our 2nd Amendment rights?

His discussion is in a post called "Adults in Charge?" posted on his regularly updated blog, "Chuck For..."

Here's a taste:

Yesterday Rachel Maddow reported on Sec State Hillary in Mexico and her taking on some US responsibility for Mexico's problems, drug demand and guns. Rachel was pleased, the adults are in charge she crowed. Excuse the hell out of me, hardly.

Read the rest and comment here or there.

As a good friend from A.B.A.T.E. said lately, "gun control will be the Democrat's Waterloo." Progressive advocates must not let this happen; there is too much other work to be done to squander political power and prestige on a meaningless, ineffective and ideologically driven anti-gun agenda. Many Democratic politicians realize this; all should have it explained to them again, and again.

Please contact your senators (and Congressmen) and make sure they clearly declare that no treaty with Mexico which abridges U.S. 2nd Amendment rights will ever be ratified:

U.S. Senator Ron Wyden

U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley
