I looked outside to see if pigs were flying because I never though I’d see this. Today, Pierce Morgan (who has been a constant on-air advocate for strict gun control) admitted that after seeing the Obama administration’s scandals, he believes gun activists have a legitimate concern about government tyranny.
Here’s the video:
from Hot Air:
I’d guess that these scandals have put an end to any notion of reviving gun control in this session of Congress. In light of the revelations at the IRS and the Department of Justice over the last few days, which red-state Senators of either party are going to sign up to expand federal oversight of guns? Obama and his team couldn’t get a gun-control bill out of the Senate, let alone the House, even with the media not just cheerleading every step of the way but conducting its own full-court press on behalf of Obama. With the media irate over the raid on the Associated Press (and asking tough questions about the IRS), I doubt that the White House is going to be able to put the band back together for a long time, if ever.
I think that Ed Morrissey’s analysis here is a little more optimistic than I am, but it speaks to a larger point I want to make. These scandals should (in a just world) take down the Obama Presidency. They should. I’m not saying they will, but Benghazi by itself is far worse than Watergate.
But putting the screws on Obama shouldn’t be the only focus here. Conservatives also need to use this potentially pivotal moment to teach the American people just how dangerous the Federal government can be. As Rep. Mike Kelley said earlier today, the Federal government can essentially do anything it wants to, and nothing is holding them accountable.
Big government is by nature tyrannical. It always has been, and it always will be. It’s time to chose: do we move forward with tyranny, or do we stop and take a stand for liberty?
Liberty. Let’s pick her back up and dust her off.
