Well, the American public has spoken.
If you ever wondered whether your activism pays off, then look no further than the immigration debate. The bill went down in flames yesterday by a vote of 53-46.
And good thing too, because this bill was packing more than just immigration stuff — it also contained anti-gun language as well.
But what else would you expect from a Ted Kennedy bill?
In addition to denying many law-abiding gun owners their right to find a job or buy a gun, the bill could have put every major gun shop out of business, something which the anti-gun left has been trying to do for years.
