The White House just announced a series of recommendations on measures to stop school shootings. Noticeably absent was a proposal to raise the minimum age to purchase a rifle to 21, that President Trump had signaled support for in the past.
He will instead have Education Secretary Betsy DeVos chair a federal commission to study the proposal. This means the proposal isn’t completely off the table, but after reviewing the facts behind the proposal, any reasonable person would realize it would do nothing to stop gun violence.
While this is a good step for Second Amendment supporters, Trump still didn’t abandon every piece of gun control he had proposed. The announcement reaffirmed Trump’s support for the Fix-NICS gun control bill that has the support of Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
As Big League Politics recently reported, the proposal is disastrous to veterans, who have been unfairly targeted by the mental health expansions included in the bill. Already, over 200,000 veterans have been targeted and stripped of their Second Amendment rights due to so-called “mental health” legislation.
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.
