I suspect we are going to see efforts to impose more gun control while simultaneously claiming to protect the Second Amendment. Attempting to restrict gun sales to licensed dealers is just one example.

Many of these battles will be battles for public opinion and gun rights advocates need to do a better job of explaining our position. I once saw someone who was attempting to defend an issue on the news and he just kept stating the Constitution protects that right. While fundamentally that may be true, but why not take some time to go into more detail. Explain why certain restrictions may make some folks feel good, but really don’t work in the long term.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
