On August 30, 2020, Gun Owners of America (GOA) Senior Vice President Erich Pratt issued a statement on Kyle Rittenhouse’s self-defense shooting:
Kyle Rittenhouse appears to be a victim of mob violence — a man who was justified and empowered to utilize his Second Amendment-recognized right to defend his life.
And, a statement by Kyle Rittenhouse’s attorneys suggests that Kyle had more of a right to be on that property than the convicted criminals against whom he defended himself.
Further, the evidence seems to exclusively suggest that while Kyle was asked to serve his community alongside several adults, he was later forced to exercise his natural, God-given right of self-defense.
GOA has observed overwhelming support for Rittenhouse from gun owners, yet few elected officials seem to be owning the self-defense narrative. Many have been waiting for more evidence to pass judgement on young Rittenhouse, but the public videos, interviews with Kyle from the night, and information from attorneys all seem to support Kyle.
Ever since it was founded in 1976, GOA has been a leading no compromise gun lobby in America. GOA has made a name for themselves by opposing unconstitutional federal encroachments on the Second Amendment and calling for the full restoration of gun rights in America.
By coming to Rittenhouse’s defense, GOA is only cementing their image as one of the most reliable pro-Second Amendment organizations in the nation.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
