USA -(Ammoland.com)- Pro-gun voters turned out in record numbers last Tuesday, both nationally and in Michigan, with the following results:
Trump’s upset victory should produce immediate positive changes in early 2017 such as ending gun free zones on military bases and reversing several of Obama’s anti-gun executive orders.
More importantly, it will help secure the Heller and McDonald decisions by maintaining a pro-gun majority on the Supreme Court with a nomination to replace Justice Scalia.
Future events may allow Trump to nominate as many as three additional Supreme Court justices during his presidency including replacements for anti-Heller justices Ginsburg and Breyer securing the individual right to own and carry firearms for generations.
For gun owners, these majorities combined with a Republican president may soon result in national concealed carry reciprocity, removing suppressors from the NFA list, NICS background check reform, and removing Obama initiated roadblocks on the importation of collectible historical firearms.
For another two years, this kills Democratic attempts to pass an assault weapons ban, expand pistol free zones, expand background checks and registration to long guns, and require insurance for legally owned firearms.
This means that Libertarian candidates will now appear on the 2018 primary ballot and be included in the MCRGO-PAC primary rating process.
Thanks to all of you who voted! The fight continues!
