Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, and Dave Workman of Gun Week think so. Here’s their take, in part, from the Tucson Citizen:
_Timing is everything and the Supreme Court’s acceptance of a case regarding the constitutionality of a handgun ban in Washington, D.C., could become the most critically-timed examination of a civil right in the nation’s history.
A decision will come in the middle of the 2008 presidential campaign, galvanizing gun rights activists who will demand more than lip service about “support for the Second Amendment” from whomever are the front-runners in both parties by that time. . . .
Politicians who have championed restrictive gun laws could face the likelihood of having their political legacies left in shambles.
Others who pander to the crowds about their “support” of the Second Amendment will suddenly have to learn that you don’t “support” a civil right, you “live” it. . . .
It could be a watershed moment._
