I may agree with this in principal , the reality is quite different . The left is winning the PR war and if we don't start playing by the same rules we will lose . ( no one wants new taxes but new revenues is OK ) wording matters ! As much as we don't like it , this garbage SELLS . This last election shows this to be true . Proceeding with blinders on hoping the 2nd amendment will speak for it's self is a very risky plan .
And yet in recent times, without playing word games and specifically including reference to keeping arms(weapons) for self defense( Heller) we have made strides on the 2A fronts.
seems to also be shifting see first link in article for poll results.
So what war is that the antis are winning again?
