Holder Confirmed

File this one under “no good can come of this”. The U.S. Senate has confirmed the rabidly anti-Second Amendment Eric Holder as its Attorney General. Only 21 republican Senators voted against his confirmation in a very stinging disappointment for those of us who value our right to keep and bear arms. The confirmation of Holder is especially dangerous in light of tenuous gains made in reversing decades of unconstitutional firearm regulations in the United States.

Maintaining judicial momentum will be incredibly difficult at this point, and I fear we will be hard pressed merely to tread water over the next two years. Even though the vote is past, it’s never too late to let your Senator know of your disapproval. By the same token, it’s never too early to start laying the groundwork for 2010 either. Though the fight may have just gotten a lot harder, we can’t give up else all of our recent gains will be quickly lost. . . or worse!

Until next time!
